Tuesday Tidbits: Kellogg's FiberPlus Antioxidant Bars

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

As a rule, I’m not a big fan of snack bars. They usually have way too much sugar and nothing else going for them to make them worth wasting the calories on.

But when I heard about Kellogg’s new FiberPlus Antioxidants Bars, something made me want to give them a try. Okay, honestly? It was the fiber. Nine grams per bar!

The bars are available in two flavors, Chocolate Chip (120 calories) and Dark Chocolate Almond (130 calories). Each flavor has 7 grams of sugar and 2 grams of protein. And did I mention the 9 grams of fiber?

I tried the Dark Chocolate Almond and it was delish! I was shocked, actually. Yeah, so they’re not all natural and they’re certainly not organic, but for a once in a while quick fix to a chocolate craving, you could do a lot worse. A LOT worse.

Oh and by the way – there’s a 75 cent coupon on the website. That’ll help since they’re around $3 for a package of 5.

These look delicious! We also like the FiberOne bars. My kids really like the oats and peanut butter one and the chocolate chip one. They have a good mix of protein and fiber as well.

I'm going to check these out!

Thanks!

When did "I need CHOCOLATE" become "Woo-HOO fiber!"?
We're getting old.
Giving up the snack bar (for my kids) is not easy.
I was raised on the BRITTLE granola bars (STILL much sugar) and we've always got granola bars in our pantry. When I consider their failings it makes me want to cry a little bit.

These are great fiber or no fiber (but the fiber is a plus!).

Fibre is in everything these days-yes, I think it helps to fill you up - I will have to give these a try 35%-more room for the non-fibre stuff - love your site

I'm really enjoying all the new higher fiber options. My husband is too.

Haven't tried these yet.

Debbie said...

I think I'd enjoy those almond ones too. They do sound good.

WhisperingWriter said...

I should try one of those.

Things that help keep me regular are exciting after all! :)

Julie said...

They sound good...but that much fiber does not agree with me. In a "I have to into hibernation for the next 24 hours" kind of way. I know they say it takes your body time to get used to that much fiber, but good grief! I do have to go to work and be out in public sometimes :P
