South Beach Living Fiber Fit S'mores Bar Review

South Beach Living Fiber Fit S'mores BarAs a college student on the go, I have come to rely on nutrition bars for when I'm hungry between classes and do not have time to seek out healthy food. I am a huge fan of the Fiber One Bars because of their high fiber count and delicious taste, but I have been getting a little bored with them, so I decided to try out another fiber-packed bar- South Beach Living's Fiber Fit bar in S'mores.

When it comes to taste and appearance, I would never know this was not a naughty candy bar. There is a thick layer of marshmallow atop a chocolate covered granola bar, with chocolate drizzle over the top of the marshmallow ... delicious! I felt like I was eating a real S'more around a campfire. I had to check over the label while I was eating to make sure I hadn't misread the calorie count, which was only 120. I was surprised that something this delicious and dessert-like could pack in 9 grams of fiber as well (35% of the recommended daily value).

Now to the downside. There's no denying these are tiny. Each 35-gram South Beach Living S'mores Fiber Fit Bar (in addition to 120 calories), also has 4 grams of fat, 3 grams of which is saturated (6% and 13% of the daily value), 125 mg of sodium (5% of the DV), 2 grams of protein and 25 grams of carbohydrates which includes 9 grams of fiber and 7 grams of sugar. The ingredient list is long and includes 3 grams of sugar alcohols to provide the added sweetness without as much calories.

Like the Fiber One bars, these are far from all-natural, but they are undeniably delicious and a good way to get your recommended daily fiber intake. If you're not too concerned about sugar alcohols and long ingredient lists, these are a must-buy. I will definitely be purchasing these again. They also come in a mocha flavor that I can't wait to try.
