When you are reaching for a snack, are you generally reaching for something that is good for you or something to satisfy a craving? I’ll admit that most of the time, I’m reaching for the second one! But what if the two weren’t mutually exclusive? What if you could grab a snack that boasted health benefits AND tasted like a naughty, decedent treat? Thanks to this sponsored partnership with Fiber One, I can tell you that such a thing exists!
Okay now, if you just wrinkled your nose when you read the words “Fiber One”, I’m going to need you to drop all of your preconceived notions for a moment. I’m talking about some seriously yummy treats here. I’m talking about the kind of treats that cause you to sneak into your co-workers drawers and snag a few bars. (But more on that later…)
Fiber One has long been the go-to brand for getting a little extra fiber into your diet in a way that doesn’t feel like you’re eating to get extra fiber. Fiber One has now come up with yummy lemon bars and also oats & chocolate bars to satisfy that craving while adding extra fiber to your diet (at least 20% of your daily requirement as a matter of fact).
To add to the healthy vibe, these Fiber One bars now boast 25% less sugar and no artificial flavors or coloring. I gave both the Lemon Bars and the Oats & Chocolate Bars a try and had a tough time picking a favorite. The Oats & Chocolate reminded me of a chewy granola bar, while the Lemon Bars were more of a dessert-like treat.
Turns out I am not the only one who loves these. I was chatting with a friend today and mentioned I would be writing about the Fiber One bars. She told me how one of her coworkers had a box of them in her desk and had offered to share them. My friend loved them so much, she may have gone back into her coworker’s desk and helped herself to a few more. You know how a little fiber is good for you, but eating a WHOLE bunch at once can be, well, stimulating? Yep, she can definitely vouch that the Fiber One bars do indeed contain fiber!
Now, I work alone at home, so I don’t need to worry about coworkers snagging my yummy treats. But even if I did, I snagged the big boxes of Fiber One Bars at Costco, so I am set! (There was even an additional coupon for extra savings – so color me happy!) Mow, if they could just come up with a more appealing name for these than “Fiber One Bars”! I guess I’m not alone in thinking that the name does not do these justice – just check out this ad.
