Still Another Breakfast Bar

Previously, Sisters and Brothers, your Chocolate Priestess as revealed two possible breakfasts ("Fiber One" and "Fiber Fit") with chocolate that might fit into your healthy diet. This morning I want to look at Kellogg's "Fiber Plus Chocolate Chip" bars which has two box cover claims: 35% of daily fiber and antioxidants.

These come in a 6.3oz box of 5 single serving bars and are priced similar to the previous fiber bars. These also have the exact same amount of fiber, 9g, as the two previous bars I've looked at. Each bar has 2g Saturated fat, 0 cholesterol, 55mg sodium, 7g sugars, and 2g protein. What stands out is that these bars also have 20% of the daily vitamin E and zinc -- the antioxidants.

In terms of taste these are good. Sweet and interestingly textured. The bottom is a chocolate ganache, the chips are on the top along with a drizzle of chocolate. The chocolate here is the standard mass produced kind: not really a buzz, tastes a bit waxy. For a bit of chocolate in your day when you really want fiber and in this case extra vitamins and minerals, this is good choice.
