Kellogg's All-Bran Multi-Grain Crackers Review

Kellogg's All-Bran Multigrain CrackersI stumbled upon Kellogg's All-Bran Multigrain Crackers touting 5 grams of fiber right on the front of the box. Ever in search of a snack with added nutritional benefits, I decided to give these a shot. They are described as, "flavorful crackers with a light, crispy texture, filled with the goodness of wholesome grains ... a deliciously simple way to get the fiber you want." Soup was on the agenda for lunch, so I portioned myself an 18-cracker serving, spread a few crackers with some light cream cheese as well as ate a few by themselves.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 18 crackers (30 grams)
Calories: 130
Total Fat: 6 grams, 9%
Saturated Fat: 1 gram, 5%
Sodium: 230 mg, 10%
Carbohydrates: 19 grams
Fiber: 5 grams, 20%
Sugars: 4 grams
Protein: 2 grams

The superman-cape-shaped cracker were pretty much as I expected - crispy, hearty, though surprisingly sweet and cinnamony. Don't get me wrong, these aren't as strong as Cinnamon Wheat Thins, but I was a little surprised since nothing on the front of the packaging indicates that these are going to taste like cinnamon toast. They went really well with cream cheese and didn't leave me wandering back to the box, as they were quite filling.

An 18 cracker serving of Kellogg's All-Bran Multi-Grain Crackers provides 130 calories, 9% of the daily value for total fat (5% for saturated fat), 10% of the DV for sodium, 5 grams of fiber, 4 grams of sugars and 2 grams of protein.

Kellogg's Frosted Mini Wheats Chocolate Little Bites Cereal Review

Kellogg's Frosted Mini Wheats Chocolate Little Bites CerealUpon first seeing Kellogg's Frosted Mini Wheats Little Bites in the stores, I snatched up the Honey Nut variety and enjoyed every last morsel. Adam from Grub Grade and Jilian from Back to the Nest, both left comments that the Chocolate version was the best. So you know what I was on the look out for when it was time to get more cereal?! Kellogg's Frosted Mini Wheats Chocolate Little Bites of course!

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 55 grams (46 pieces)
Calories: 190
Total Fat: 1 gram, 2%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 120 mg, 5%
Protein: 5 grams
Carbohydrates: 47 grams
Fiber: 6 grams, 23%
Sugar: 12 grams
Price: $2.50 (14.5 ounce box)
At first, I dug straight into the cereal box to see what I actually held before me. Dare I say, tasted like a fudge brownie?! Yes, I dare say it. The fudge brownie aspect is brought out even more thanks to the thin layer of white "icing" on top. The texture, of course, is nowhere near that of a fudge brownie, however, it holds the brownie flavor well.

Each tiny square is composed of tightly packed layers of shredded wheat that crunch and meld together so nicely. Furthermore, the size of these sweet treats makes them perfect for snacking. If you plan on adding milk, the chocolate goodness is still prevalent and utterly delicious, but some of the fudgy brownie flavor is overwhelmed by the sweetness of the milk.

Kellogg's Jumbo Multi-Grain Rice Krispies Cereal Review

Kellogg's Jumbo Multi-Grain Rice Krispies CerealI have never been a fan of the airy and unsatisfying regular Rice Krispies (although Snap, Crackle and Pop have always had my heart). Well, now I can officially tell the boys that I genuinely like one of their products: Jumbo Multi-Grain Rice Krispies. When they ramped up the size of the infamous Rice Krispies, they also ramped up the density. Therefore, instead of a bunch of airy bits of nothing, you are presented with a bowl (or hand) full of more substantial, but still light and airy, cylindrical cereal pieces.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 cup (27 grams)
Calories: 90
Total Fat: 0%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 170 mg, 7%
Protein: 1 gram
Carbohydrates: 24 grams
Fiber: 3 grams, 11%
Sugar: 8 grams
Price: $2.50 (11.2 ounces)
Furthermore, this new (and, in my opinion) improved version is graced by a touch of honey, which makes all of the difference in the world. Actually, this cereal tastes 99% identical to Honey Kix, with Kix possessing a slightly different texture and shape.

Each 1 cup (27 gram) serving of Kellogg's Jumbo Multi-Grain Rice Krispies Cereal provides a mere 90 calories, no fat, 3 grams of fiber (11% of the daily value), 8 grams of sugar and 1 gram of protein . The ingredient list contains nothing out of the ordinary (rice, flour, sugar, cornmeal, honey, oil, salt and added vitamin) and manages to be on the shorter side.

Kellogg's Frosted Mini-Wheats Honey Nut Little Bites Review

Kelloggs Frosted Mini Wheats Honey Nut Little BitesWhile looking around for a new cereal to try out, I discovered Kellogg's Frosted Mini Wheats Little Bites in Honey Nut and Chocolate. However, the chocolate variety contained saturated fat, which I generally like to keep out of my breakfasts, so Honey Nut it was (plus Honey Nut makes for a great cereal). Kellogg's says this cereal is made with 100% whole grains and this "lightly sweetened whole-grain wheat cereal" is nearly half the size of regular Frosted Mini-Wheats cereal (one of my complaints about the regular one is that the size is a little too big for me).

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 55 grams (46 pieces)
Calories: 190
Total Fat: 1 gram, 2%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 120 mg, 5%

Price: $2.50
The traditional spun wheat is shrunken into bite sized pieces (about the size of a sugar cube) and topped with a layer of sweet honey/caramel flavored icing (though some of the little bites are naked). At first, they seemed a little stale in texture; but after a few bites, the whole shredded wheat thing grew on me and I began to really enjoy them. The little woven squares soften up with a splash of milk and create a delicious bowl of breakfast with the perfect crunchy to soft ratio. On the other hand, I have grown to enjoy them on-the-go, straight from a snack-sized baggie too.

Kellogg's Frosted Mini-Wheats Blueberry Muffin CerealAfter finishing a box of Kellogg's Smart Start Strawberry Oat Bites, I was perusing the cereal aisle and saw Kellogg's Frosted Mini-Wheats Blueberry Muffin Cereal. With a rebate offer on the box, I decided it was worth a try. The Frosted Mini-Wheats Blueberry Muffin Cereal is very similar to the regular Frosted Mini-Wheats except for the added blueberry flavored coating.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 52 grams (24 pieces)
Calories: 180
Total Fat: 1 grams, 2%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 0%
Protein: 4 grams
Carbohydrates: 43 grams
Fiber: 5 grams, 20%
Sugar: 12 grams
Price: $2.50

I really like the mini-wheat squares cereal for their heartiness and ability to hold on to the milk when eaten together. The coloring seems a little strange on a cereal that is usually so simple, but it grew on me. I ate this more as a snack than for breakfast, and they were quite filling (the nature of the shredded wheat results in a lot of crumbs when you bite into the cereal when it's eaten as a snack).

Kellogg's FiberPlus Antioxidants Dark Chocolate Almond Bars Review

Reviewed by Tanya Jackson | Oct 28, 2009

Kellogg's FiberPlus Antioxidants Dark Chocolate Almond BarsI could not resist the promise of both fiber and antioxidant power in the Kellogg's FiberPlus Antioxidant Bars, so I grabbed a box of the decadent sounding, Dark Chocolate Almond flavor to try. I found these for $1.88 and there was a coupon for $1.00 off 2 boxes on the back of both boxes. Nutritious and inexpensive to boot so I was certainly hoping for the best.

Unfortunately, it didn't live up to my high expectations. The bar flavor was very mild - I don't like overly sweet bars, but this was too bland even for me. You can't see whole almonds in these bars and although there are pieces scattered throughout, there doesn't seem to be enough to add to the flavor or texture. I could taste a mild dark chocolate flavor which was the only saving grace.
