Benton’s Blueberry Breakfast Biscuits are on my plate this morning. Or in my backpack, pocket or wherever. They’re pretty portable. These are designed to rival belVita breakfast biscuits, I think. Personally, I’m a pretty big blueberry guy.
I mean I enjoy blueberries. I’m not A blueberry. At least I don’t think I am. That would be pretty intense to find that out. These biscuits tout that they will provide energy that helps you to enjoy your day.
I wonder if that means I can blame the biscuits if I have a bad one. Either way, we’ll find out. Benton’s is Aldi’s store brand behind a lot of their various snacks, they have a pretty big selection. Let’s get into some nutrition information.
Benton’s Blueberry Breakfast Biscuits Nutrition Facts
These do pack a lot of energy into a small wrapper. Eating 230 calories should be enough of a boost to get you up and moving for a good hour or two. I feel like other brands claim 4 hours of energy from eating these but that’s suspect at best if you eat a 2200 calorie total throughout the day. I myself need about 2600-2800 calories per day, so I’d need at least 2 of these for that many hours of energy.
The Benton’s Blueberry Breakfast Biscuits are mostly carbs, a big chunk of which is made up of added sugars. They do have a small bit of protein in there, too. Then of course we’ve got a few different vitamins and minerals in there. 15% of your daily Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, and Riboflavin are in it. Small bit of iron as well.
This does have a decent amount of chemically sounding things in it. But then there’s whole rolled oats, blueberries, and even some whey protein isolate for that extra kick of energy. It does also contain wheat, milk, and soy, so be aware of that. It might also contain peanuts and tree nuts.
Benton’s Blueberry Breakfast Biscuits Review
This review might not be as accurate as it could be since I actually ate these later in the day. I feel like a proper review would be done around the time these were designed to be eaten, but it can’t be that big of a difference, right? Probably not. These are more like crackers than biscuits in my opinion, too.
I think that’s a matter of perspective whether Benton’s Blueberry Breakfast Biscuits are crackers, cookies, or biscuits. When I think of a biscuit, I imagine biscuits and gravy, like this:
Since these are a little more sugary, they fall more into the cookie/cracker arena as far as my taste buds are concerned. I picked the worst week to quit drinking coffee, because I feel like these would go great with some. In terms of taste, they’re definitely good, pretty much indistinguishable from their competitors at other stores.
The blueberry taste was a little faint, but that’s also kind of expected from dried berries. I’d consider keeping a few of these in a backpack for a long hike, bike ride or workout. They’re quick to eat, taste pretty good, and the crumbs are pretty minimal.
