Fiber Saves The Day!

I can say I am a pretty big fan of Fiber One products. I especially like their oat and caramel chewy bars. I was in Walmart the other day and I saw they have now have muffins. I'm not sure if they're new or not, but that was my first time seeing them. I had to choose from wild bluberry and oats, apple cinnamon bun and banana chocolate chip. The website lists mixed fruit, nuts and honey, but I didn't see those. I chose apple cinnamon bun. They came in a box of 3 and cost $2.75. which I thought was kind of steep. I was a little disappointed in the size of the muffins. I thought they would be bigger. The texture was excellent. They were moist and fairly heavy for a "diet" muffin. The taste was pretty good. I think I would rather have the Little Debbie cakes for a sweet snack though. Depending on my mood, I may or may not purchase these again.

Perfect For The Kid In You!!!

Goldfish crackers are usually something I give to my 6 year old. I will occasionally grab a handful to snack on, but I pretty much gave these things up when I left the fifth grade. Then I saw these baked Goldfish Grahams at my local Foo Lion. The bags were kind of glossy so they really caught my attention. Then I noticed they had them in cinnamon! I just had to try them. They are not advertised as a "low-calorie" snack but I was pretty impressed with the nutritional value. And to my surprise - they were good! (I'm actually eating them as I type). The texture is kind of grainy (if that's a word), and the first taste is definitely cinnamon, then a sweetness. A serving size is about 50 pieces which is a nice size snack. I would definitely recommend these and will be buying them again.
