When I first started losing weight, I remember learning how important dietary fiber was to a healthy diet. At the time, my nutrition knowledge was limited. I was transitioning away eating from a lot of unhealthy foods, so I started looking for ways to easily incorporate dietary fiber into my diet. One of the things I found were Fiber One bars. I started eating one most days – for breakfast, snacks between meals, and sometimes even as an after dinner treat.
While now I try to get most of my nutrients from whole foods, occasionally I will grab a bar or something similar if I need something quick. I haven’t had Fiber One bars in a few years, but recently I had the opportunity to review a few new flavors, as well as give away a pack of samples to a reader.
The Oats & Chocolate was my old favorite and just as good as I remembered – packing 35% of your daily fiber intake into 140 calories. The new Fiber One protein bars have not only 20% of your daily fiber intake but also 7 grams of protein – pretty significant for 130-140 calories (depending on the flavor).
The taste is great – the only thing I would note is that this is perfect as a snack and not a meal replacement bar, as it is not as filling and does not pack the nutrition punch that a meal full of whole foods can and should.
Now for the giveaway – My Blog Spark will be sending one lucky reader a sample pack of 4 flavors to try, plus a $25 gift card to Publix. I will also be giving my $25 Publix gift card away – so there are two prizes to win!
