Dear Bubu
Any food that contains more than 950 kJ per 100 g is classed as High in Energy - according to the product label, Tuc biscuits contain 2055 kJ per 100g and should not be used in a weightloss diet. In addition, any food that contains 22g of fat per 100g, is regarded as High in Fat and should not be used in a weightloss diet. Cream crackers contain 1857 kJ and 16.3 g of fat per 100g according to the SA Food Tables and are also not ideal for weightloss diets. I would recommend that you rather use Provita which have a low glycaemic index (GI) and a scraping of Marmite or a bit of fat-free cottage cheese instead of the high-fat, high-energy, high-salt crackers that are available in the market.

i buy tuc every week regularly and i have just discoved tuc bacon and they are absolutely delicious. my problem is that i live in liverpool and the only place i can buy them is in B & M in the strand in Bootle. they are like golddust i think they only get 1 delivery once a week and they are gone as soon as they arrive. could you get B&M to advance their order by at least 100. while i was looking in other shops to buy them i noticed that ritz have started a bacon biscuit. by the way i have tried the sour cream and onion they are nice but as soon as you spread anything on them they break up in your hand.
