Fiber One Honey Clusters Cereal

The only cereal that my husband will buy for himself is Fiber One Honey Clusters Cereal. It's described as, "lightly sweetened whole grain flakes with honey clusters" and provides 51% of the daily value for fiber, which is the reason he buys it.

Fiber One Frosted Shredded Wheat Cereal

Fiber One Frosted Shredded Wheat Cereal is described as, "whole grain shredded wheat biscuits with a light frosting bring the perfect balance of delicious taste and nutrition ... with 35% of the daily value for fiber in every serving."

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 cup (60 grams)
Calories: 200
Total Fat: 1 gram, 2%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 0%
Carbohydrates: 50 grams
Fiber: 9 grams, 35%
Sugars: 12 grams
Protein: 5 grams

Of the Fiber One cereals reviewed so far, this is my favorite. It is lightly sweet, the wheat biscuits are compact and not stringy (like Post Honey Nut Shredded Wheat) and crunchy. Yes, you can add milk and have it like you would normally eat a cereal, or you can just eat the sweet wheaty biscuits straight, as a snack - that's my favorite way - while sipping tea of course! And what's even better - this is one Fiber One cereal that does NOT have sucralose in the ingredients list.

It reads, whole grain wheat, sugar, corn bran, guar gum and gelatin. BHT is added to packaging to preserve freshness. Plus there are the usually added vitamins & minerals.

Fiber One Honey Squares Cereal

When an opportunity to try a cereal with 80 calories. 10 grams of fiber (40% of the daily value) and 3 grams of sugars, it's a given that I will be the first in line. So when I was asked if I wanted samples of Fiber One Honey Squares Cereal, well - I was only thinking of you dear readers and writing a review.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 3/4 cup (30 grams)
Calories: 80
Total Fat: 1 gram, 1%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 140 mg, 6%
Carbohydrates: 25 grams
Fiber: 10 grams, 40%
Sugars: 3 grams
Protein: 1 gram

The puffed flakes are a little sweet - not too much, not too little - and there is a hint of honey, but also it has a very wheaty taste - as they said over at The Impulsive Buy, you CAN taste the fiber. I really did like it though - and surprisingly - so did the kids. I didn't think there would ever be a cereal that wasn't very sugary that they would like.

Each 30 gram serving (about 3/4 cup) of Fiber One Honey Squares Cereal provides 80 calories, from 1 gram of total fat, 10 grams of fiber (40% of the daily value), 3 grams of sugar and 1 gram of protein.

Fiber One Chocolate Fudge Toaster Pastry Review

Reviewed by Tanya Jackson | Apr 9, 2010

Fiber One Chocolate Fudge Toaster PastryI 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.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 52 grams (1 pastry)
Calories: 190
Total Fat: 4 grams, 6%
Saturated Fat: 1.5 grams, 7%
Sodium: 150 mg, 6%
Carbohydrates: 36 grams
Fiber: 5 grams, 20%
Sugar: 16 grams
Protein: 4 grams

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.

Fiber One Banana Chocolate Chip Frozen Muffin

Fiber One is cranking out new products left and right. The newest invention to pop out of their test kitchen is Fiber One Frozen Muffins, which intrigued me to the point that I just had to give them a try. Of course, I chose the Banana Chocolate Chip variety!

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 muffin (65 grams)
Calories: 180
Total Fat: 4 grams, 6%
Saturated Fat: 1.5 grams, 8%
Sodium: 180 mg, 8%
Protein: 3 grams
Carbohydrates: 37 grams
Fiber: 7 grams, 28%
Sugar: 18 grams
Price: $4.50 (1 box of 4)
Contrary to what the box claims, 10-15 seconds in the microwave didn't do it for my little muffin, but 30 seconds seemed to do the trick. There is a thin sprinkling of granola with chocolate chips on top, that will crumble off as you rip open the package, setting the precedent high because that oat mixture is delicious! The muffin itself is very smooth and soft, almost to the point of being doughy, which I actually enjoyed. The banana flavor is very thorough with a hefty amount of chocolate chips adding their own level of gooey sweetness. The tasty granola mixture on top is almost better picked off when it's crumbling out of the package because it doesn't do much for the muffin except add a slight variation of chew to the extremely soft and dense muffin.

While Fiber One advises that these would be great for an on-the-go breakfast, I can't say that I totally agree thanks to the soft doughy nature of the product and the sticky oat topping.

Fiber One Brown Sugar Cinnamon Toaster Pastry Review

Fiber One Brown Sugar Cinnamon Toaster PastryBefore I ever cared about nutrition, my typical on-the-go breakfast was 2 Kellogg's Pop-Tarts and a bottle of sugary fruit juice. Today, however, I am much more conscious about calories and nutrition. Now, I try to eat something filling for breakfast that will not leave me famished within an hour. I still love my occasional sweet tarts though, and so I was excited to see that Fiber One tried to "healthyfy" them ... somewhat.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 pastry
Calories: 190
Total Fat: 4 grams, 6%
Saturated Fat: 1 grams, 5%
Sodium: 140 mg, 6%
Protein: 4 grams
Carbohydrates: 36 grams
Fiber: 5 grams, 18%
Sugar: 16 grams
Price: $2.50
I picked up Fiber One Brown Sugar Cinnamon Toaster Pastry and couldn't help but compare the nutritional values to Kellogg's Whole Grain Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop Tarts. There isn't much difference nutritionally, as both have 5 grams of fiber, but Fiber One has 2 grams more sugar and 10 fewer calories, and Kellogg's has 2 grams less protein.

The ingredients are also similar except Fiber One uses whole grain wheat flour and Kellogg's uses a combination of whole wheat and enriched flour. They both use various sweeteners (corn syrup, HFCS and brown sugar).
