GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED! Check back on Thursday for the winner... good luck!!
The first thing I thought when I saw this bar was WOW! A bar that has 20% of the daily recommended value of fiber? Really? Must absolutely taste like cardboard for sure. Let's face it - a lot of bars do - but especially those that are loaded with the beneficial fiber that NONE of us ever seem to get enough of ... but we all know our bodies need. I already love Fiber One yogurt, but that's not really very portable. Bars are great for that very reason, but will this one live up to the Fiber One name?
Fiber One® 90 Calorie Chewy Bars are available in chocolate and chocolate peanut butter flavors, contain 2 grams of fat, are only 1 Weight Watcher point, and contain 5 grams of fiber, which can help keep you feel full - making sticking to a diet easier.
But you don't care as much about that first do you? You want to know what they taste like first and foremost don't you? Yeah, me too! So let's tear into one shall we? Mmmmm... look at that squiggle of chocolate across the top....
Hmmmm.... bottom layer of chocolate. Promising.
The texture of the bar reminds me a little bit of a chocolate rice cereal bar - you know the ones - chewy and gooey.
The chocolate tastes good - I'll bet the chocolate peanut butter bar is awesome. I mean who doesn't like chocolate and peanut butter together? And there was a familiar and fond flavor in this bar, though I couldn't quite put my finger on what it was. Then I looked at the list of ingredients - chicory root!! Being a southerner, and very familiar and equally fond of Louisiana chicory coffee, the kind that goes especially well with hot beignets, well, no wonder that ingredient rang familiar. Other ingredients include honey, whole grain oats, puffed wheat, and semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Yummy! I like them. These bars are easy to tote anywhere, can be stored in your desk drawer, are a great option to help stave off those afternoon hungries that always seem to hit me right around 2:30-3:00 and they can satisfy your sweet tooth at the same time - without sabotaging your diet or your routine. And they are tasty. I'd say that's a winner!
Now even better, one of you can try these bars for yourself completely FREE and get a few lovely extra goodies, courtesy of Fiber One through MyBlogSpark!
