Things I Love Thursday – Fiber One Bars

 

TILT

My favorite quick snack is a Fiber One bar.  I am currently on a low-fat/low-calorie diet, and this product fits perfectly into my plan.  I carry one with me in my purse at all times to satisfy my hunger if I am out and about…it saves me from grabbing something unhealthy at a drive-thru! 

Each bar contains 35% of our daily fiber requirements, and most flavors are around 140 calories/4 grams fat per bar.  They are delicious!  Unlike some other skimpy, tiny bar snacks (ahem…Special K), this product is thick, chewy, and satisfying.  My favorite is the “Oats and Chocolate.”

I never pay full price for this product because every week it seems that some grocery store is running a special sale.  Plus, coupons for this product are in the newspaper at least once per month.  You can also go to the Fiber One website and print off a $1 coupon!  If you shop at Sam’s Club, this product is available to buy in bulk.

I'd been wondering about those- I keep seeing coupons for them, but I've never had them before. I may have to use my coupons and give them a try. Thanks!

We love them at our house too. I just bought TWO BOXES at Sam's Club this week! We love both the chocolate and the peanut butter flavors. Mocha is okay, but the coffee flavor tastes too fake for me. For a change, I also like the strawberry and apple (just like an apple pie!) flavors.

We also eat the Fiber One cereals. Even my picky 7 yo likes the Honey Clusters, and hubs and I like the Raisin Bran Clusters, too.

we've been eating these for a long time, and they are SO good.

my boys love them...but a word of caution...they may make you, um, gassy...so you might start with a half for your kiddos!

I enjoy these too, as well as the cereals by Fiber One. They really make you feel full so you aren't hungry an hour later.
Thanks for the coupon!

I have just started eating these in the last couple of weeks. My Dollar Tree carries them so I buy 10 boxes at a time. You can't beat $1!!!! Oh, and if you can use your coupon, I wonder if it would be free???????

Audra,
No way! I haven't thought to check my Dollar Tree. Great tip...thanks!

I love the Chocolate Mocha! When they go on sale, I stock up on every flavor though. It really depends on my mood as to which one I grab. My kids even eat them (my kids are the pickiest!).

I know this might not be the *best* meal, but every morning for breakfast I have a Fiber One bar with either some yogurt or a banana and a cup of Earl Grey.

I've got to check out our Dollar Tree! (Is that the Audra in the
Montgomery area -- your SIL?)

Hi Tara!
Yep, Audra is my sweet SIL. I checked out my local Dollar Tree after I read her comment, and they sell Fiber One bars as well. However, they sell the $1 small packages that only have two bars per box. So, basically, you're paying $2.50 for a regular box of five. I can usually find them cheaper than that somewhere else (when I factor in double/triple coupons), but I'm really glad to know my Dollar Tree has them just in case!

I like the Fiber One, The SoyJoy, and SouthBeach Bars. THose three brands have the most protein and least calories, I am not sure about the fiber, but they taste good and help with that afternoon snack attack
