Review: Weight Watchers Bakery Goods

There’s no need to miss out on any of your favourite foods thanks to Weight Watchers’ extensive range of delicious bakery goods. Providing all of your favourite bread options but in a calorie-controlled, ProPoints-monitored choice, there’s something for any meal time occasion with no compromise on taste.  Here are the bakery goods we sampled.

We were sent the Weight Watchers Pitta Breads which are perfect for a quick and tasty lunch, either filled as pitta pockets or warmed through and accompanied by your favourite dip.  They are available in both white and wholemeal with a ProPoints value of 3 per Pitta.

You would be hard pressed to know these were 'diet' pitta breads, they taste just the same as 'normal' ones, and went down very well with us all.  They retail at around £0.95 (for white) and £1 (for Wholemeal) for a pack of six, and are available from Asda, Morrisons and Tesco.

Weight Watchers Mini Naans were also delicious, both the Plain and Garlic & Coriander variants.  The girls loved the Garlic & Coriander ones as a snack, and Steve and I enjoyed the plain ones with a curry.   Both varieties were again no different at all to normal naan breads, but obviously without the usual calorie content!

These low fat, soft Mini Naans have been flame-baked for an authentic Indian taste and have a ProPoints value of just 3 per Naan.  they retail at around £1.48 for a pack of four, and are available from Asda, Morrisons, Ocado and Waitrose.

We love to cook Mexican food, whether it's quick quesadillas at lunchtime or fajitas, enchiladas or chimichangas for dinner.  We used the Weight Watchers Tortillas to make veggie fajitas and they were great, again not much different to normal ones.  A great store cupboard staple offering a versatile and easy mealtime solution, it is worth always having a packet or two of these in store.  They have a ProPoints value of just 3 per Tortilla, retail at around £1.48 for a pack of six, and are available from Asda, Ocado, Tesco and Waitrose.

Another great store cupboard staple, the Weight Watchers Petits Pains are partbaked, and after just a few minutes in a hot oven will emerge soft inside with a crusty outer, perfect for dinner time or to accompany a lunchtime bowl of soup.  These were delicious and I don't mind telling you that they didn't make it to the cooled down stage!  Although we probably defeated the object of them by spreading on butter...  The girls loved them.

The Petits Pains have a ProPoints value of 3 per roll, and retail at around £0.98 for a pack of four.  They are available from Asda, Morrisons and Tesco.  A Garlic & Herb variant is also available.

I must confess that the Weight Watchers Muffins were the first thing we tried as I took the goodies out of the box - who can resist a chocolate muffin?!  These were actually the only products that did taste different to their conventional siblings, being rather more solid and chewy than a 'normal' muffin.  The Blueberry was better, as the blueberries made them a bit moister, we found the chocolate ones a bit tricky to be honest.

However, if you are on the ProPoints diet and want a cakey or chocolatey hit, then at just 5 ProPoints per muffin they are worth trying.  The muffins retail at around £1.70 for a pack of four, and are available from Tesco and Morrisons.

Weight Watchers Bagels, Weight Watchers Wraps, and Weight Watchers Garlic and Herb Dough Balls are also available.
