Weight Watchers has extended its popular reduced-fat cakes range with the launch of Almond Cake Slices, made from a combination of almond sponge, pastry, jam and almonds.

Now, under licence from Weight Watchers, Anthony Alan Foods (Barnsley, Yorkshire) has taken the conventional recipe and re-invented the Almond Cake Slice as a reduced-fat, healthy option.

Weight Watchers expects it to be a big hit with health-conscious consumers, generating extra business for the retailer.

The Almond Cake Slices contain 2.6g of fat and 95 calories per slice, and have a Weight Watchers points value of 1.5. They are available in packs of six with an RRP of £1.25.
