FiberOne Chewy Bars Review and Giveaway 3 winners!
In the last few months my doctor had started harping on me about fiber. You know how those doctors get - like a dog with a bone once they get started! Everytime she brings it up I get thinking about cardboard, twigs and bran, then I forget about it by the time I exit her office! I'm surprised she didn't write me a costly perscription by now!
Anyway, I was contacted recently and asked if I was interested in doing a review for Fiber One Chewy Bars...and my first thought was that my doctor had set me up! But no, it was from the wonderful folks at General Mills! Well, General Mills has had great products for years, so count me in!
I received a wonderful basket with not only a box of Fiber One Chocolate Mocha Bars, but also all kinds of chocolate spa goodies! There is chocolate scented soap, candle, bath salts, lotion and a bath pillow! How fun is that?
My spa basket sat over the weekend since I had grandkids here and I wanted to actually try these myself! So this morning I got the basket out to check it all out.Setting all the spa goodies aside I noticed right off that the box says "35% of your daily value of fiber", which my doctor will love but I was still sceptical! When I've tried these bar type snacks in the past they were always hard so I grabbed a cup of hot chocolate, just in case! Surprise! I was wrong! Very wrong! These bars are soft and chewy and taste SO good! They have chocolate chips, rolled oats and a honey taste with just a hint of coffee flavor!
I'm thinking maybe these could be a good breakfast for people on the run!Easy to drop in a purse or backpack or maybe hubbys briefcase or lunchbox! By the way...I didn't need the hot chocolate, but it sure went nicely with the bar! I'm planning on another tomorrow morning!
