Looking for snacks without guilt? I can sympathize; sometimes all I want to do is raid my cabinet devouring all fruity or chocolate items. Recently I got the opportunity from myplatefullco-op to try the new Fiber One Strudel, Cookies, & Meal Bars.
Now when one thinks of cookies, fiber is usually not a item that crosses there minds. You would think of adjectives such as: chocolaty, gooey, soft, & sweet to describe most cookies.
So once I got the Fiber One Cookies in hand, I wanted to put them in the hands of the experts…”my kids”.
I have a snack bowl in my cabinet full of school snacks for my kids, so they can grab and go in the morning. I added Fiber One Cookie packages in the mix and waited to see if the kids grabbed them and what they had to say the snack when they arrived home. To my surprise no one said anything so the next morning my son grabbed a cookie package again so I asked him “what he thought of the cookies?” he responded with: “I like them” , “they taste like regular cookies”. My daughter, being a typical tween, responded with: “they are okay”.
I”m not a cookie type of person so I left those for my kids but I had to sample the Strudels. The Fiber One Strudels are perfect when you want a little something sweet. They are a perfect combination of fruit, pastry and sweet icing. This is a perfect sin-less sweet mini snack. I got the opportunity to try the strawberry flavor and I can’t wait to try the blueberry.
In my opinion, the Meal Bar can be either a perfect meal replacement for those always on the go or it can be a small between meal snack that will sustain you. The bar is a perfect blend of chocolate and almond- high in protein and fiber and doesn’t lack in taste either. I would recommend the meal bar.
