I tried the Fiber One Strawberry Toaster Pastry before and really enjoyed what I found. It couldn't have tasted any more like a Pop Tart ... maybe even better - although, in my opinion, they are both simply treats and not something I would eat with any regularity. But I spotted the fiberlicious pastries again on sale for $1.75, I whipped out my $1.00 off coupon that I pulled from a magazine and scooped up the Fiber One Chocolate Fudge Toaster Pastry to try, for the bargain price of $0.75.
The following afternoon, I popped one of my chocolate-y toaster pastries into the toaster (where else?) and plopped it onto a colorful little plate moments later. Immediately, I sensed that something wasn't right. The edges just don't crisp up like they should and, despite Fiber One's slogan of "Cardboard No. Delicious Yes", their Chocolate Fudge Toaster Pastries must have snuck out of the test kitchen prior to their test run, because they truly taste like cardboard. The one part that is enjoyable is the dead center that where it is really fudgy and chocolatey, and beneath all of that sugar you can no longer detect the cardboard taste/ texture of the crust.
Each Fiber One Chocolate Fudge Toaster Pastry (52 grams) provides 190 calories, 4 grams of total fat, 1.5 grams of saturated fat (6% and 7% of the daily value), 4 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber (20% of the DV) and 16 grams of sugar.
Whole grain wheat flour, water, corn syrup, sugar and high fructose corn syrup kick off the ingredient list. There are 2 toaster pastries in each pouch, but in this case, I didn't have to worry about wanting to eat them both.
The price was cheap as can be, but the product tasted pretty cheap too! If you get a hankering for a toaster pastry, go ahead and indulge in Fiber One's treats, just stay far away from the Chocolate Fudge Toaster Pastry. Marvo from The Impulsive Buy liked these Fiber One Chocolate Fudge Toaster Pastries, so it looks like we need a tie-breaker. Have you had these - what did you think?
