You know all of those Fiber One commercials that compare foods typically containing fiber to cardboard and then show seemingly random people at the supermarket trying samples of any of their products, only to be completely surprised by what they are tasting?
I recently had the opportunity to try a box of Fiber One 80 Calories cereal, thanks to MyBlogSpark, and I inadvertently reenacted the role of one of those seemingly random people at the fictional supermarket with the Fiber One sample booth. And that newer commercial where a mom and a dad are sitting at the kitchen table in the morning eating a bowl of Fiber One cereal and their kid wakes up, asks where his cereal is and they have him try “Number One” cereal hoping that it can pass off as something kid-friendly that he will eat up and it totally works? Yeah, that scenario is now believable.
Obviously, I was pretty surprised by what I was tasting when I had my first bowl of Fiber One 80 Calories cereal. Lightly coated in honey to give the cereal a sweet taste, it is really delicious and not one of those “healthy” cereals you have to will yourself to finish a bowl of. I know, I’ve been down that route a few times now. My one, tiny problem with Fiber One 80 Calories cereal is that at times, when you’re munching along through the honey-coated squares, the texture can sometimes seem a little thicker than most other cereals I’ve eaten. However, the benefits and taste far outweigh the very slight texture issue.
Ever since finding out that I have low blood sugar that needs to be checked and maintained daily, I have been trying all sorts of different cereals that provide healthier solutions at breakfast time. Given the fact that this cereal is only 80 calories while also providing 40% of the daily value of fiber needed daily, as well as the fact that it keeps you full until lunch time, it’s a great choice.
We had the opportunity to not only review Fiber One 80 Calories cereal, but to also give away a prize pack to one Lucky Woman Tribune reader!
