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!

Who couldn't use a spa break? Between keeping up with work and keeping up with sweepstaking (I'm never caught up) there isn't much time for anything else.

I really could use this not because it's a super great win, but I've been told in no uncertain terms by the doctor to get fiber and do it now. Thanks a bunch for having such a really necessary prize. Fiber is on my list for hubby.

I'm having a very hard time right now with the death of my husband in Dec. Maybe this would help me to relax some.

Somebody else was just telling me how good these are! I'm anxious to try them! And the spa breaks sound like a wonderful idea.

I would love to win this. . . I eat a Fiber One bar every day for breakfast, and I bought 20 boxes when I was at Dollar Tree last -- all Peanut Butter, so this would give me a different flavor.

Why do I need a spa break? Because I'm so sick of winter. I was telling a friend in Houston the other day that the only way to describe this winter is you wake up, it's 0 degrees out and there's ANOTHER foot of snow on top of what we got the day before. Official reports were over 20 feet of snow this winter. If that doesn't call for a spa break, I don't know what does!

Why do I need a spa break? It seems like with all the depressing news lately a little bit of pampering would do most everyone some good! I would like to try the new FiberOne Chewy Bars, from your review they sound great!

I could use a spa break because, (well really who couldn't)all I have been doing is working and going to the doctors. I would love to actually get to a spa but with the weather and my checkbook balance, that ain't happening anytime soon. Love the tub pillow.

Berek said...

I need a spa break because my extreme and eternal beauty is being eroded by constant contact with the great unwashed.

Hi there! I don't need a spa break more than any one else. If I said I did, it would be a lie. I would LOVE one! I work as hard as the next guy. It is a hard time for everyone. We are ALL stressed out! MONEY Is STRETCHED so tight you can read through it. And the home should be a place to come home and unwind. I'm tired at the end of a day.. and this would be a major Blessing.
Good luck to EVERY One!

BAH a spa day?! I'm sure we all need atleast a week... However, a break from the kids and hubby would be wonderful... We are all just getting over being sick so a nice little relaxation would be very welcome... weeshenanigans [at] gmail [dot] com

It's been so gloomy and wet here for the past few months, a spa break would really brighten my day.

Fiber is good, great tasting fiber is even better. Happy day to everyone!

I need a spa break because it has been a long winter and my body is weary from too much work and very little play! So a spa break would give me time to pamper myself, something I need right now to rejuvenate myself and get energized!

After working 8 months straight adding up income for over 11,000 households for the fuel assistance program I'm finally laid off and ready for a spa break for sure~! Today was my last day and my brain is fried. I even saw figures in my sleep this past month. It is time for some R&R. Thanks for Sharing
