Recent studies suggest that many American’s aren’t getting enough fiber. You know fiber – the “politically correct” folks say it’s “filling” (which it is) but the best thing about fiber is that it keeps you “moving.” (If you know what I mean.) It’s difficult to describe the feeling, but let’s suffice it to say that when you’re lacking in fiber – you know it. Fortunately, the new Kellogg’s FiberPlus product line offers delicious ways to get your daily fiber – in cereal or snack bar form.
Kellogg’s FiberPlus products conveniently provide up to 35% of your recommended daily fiber in three tasty ways – a hearty breakfast cereal, toasty waffles, or filling snack bars.
We had the opportunity to try out some of the FiberPlus bars and cereals and were impressed, to say the least. Typically, when I think “fiber” I don’t think chocolate or fudge. I think dry and bland bran muffins – blech. The FiberPlus bars and cereals will not make you go “Blech.” They will make you go “Yum.” You may even do a double-take to make sure that the packaging still says “35% of your daily fiber.”
The Kellogg’s FiberPlus Bars are available in four flavors – Caramel Coconut Fudge, Chocolate Chip, Dark Chocolate Almond and Chocolatey Peanut Butter. I sampled every single flavor and enjoyed doing so. In addition to 35% of your daily fiber, the bars also have 7 grams of whole grains, and the antioxidants vitamin E and zinc (which is why these are Kellogg’s FiberPlus Antioxidants bars.) I was so impressed with how much flavor the bars had. You can clearly see the oats and the rice puffs, and for the ones with chocolate, they have a delicious cocoa coating on the bottom with a drizzle on top. The bars have a great texture – not too tough or too chewey.
There are three varieties of cereals in the Kellogg’s FiberPlus product line – Caramel Pecan Crunch, Berry Yogurt Crunch, and Cinnamon Oat Crunch. Each of these cereals also provide 35% (or more) of our daily recommended fiber, along with 24+ grams of whole grain and antioxidants Vitamin C and E. The Berry Yogurt Crunch has these great yogurt-flavored clusters and a nice berry-sweetness that makes it a tasty option for breakfast for both kids and adults.
I love that with FiberPlus, I can be confident that I’m getting the fiber my body needs to stay healthy. Both the bars and the cereals fill you up without filling heavy, making them a great way to start the day or for a little afternoon (or evening) snack.
