I love a good bar. No, not that kind silly. The food kind. The problem is that I don’t think very many of them are good. My favorite has always been the Fiber One bars. My kids really like them too.
The only real drawback is of the gastrointestinal variety. Which means they make you toot. But you can manage that by eating them in the afternoon. That way the toots don’t hit until you get home where you can lay the silent but deadlies on your unsuspecting children.
Fiber One has come out with two new chewy bars aimed to appeal to kids in chocolate and strawberry pb&j flavors. I was sent a box of each to review.The kids LOVE them, and I have to say that the pb&j variety is really awesome. It tastes just like a peanut butter sandwich.
I also like that they are easy to pack for Cady for snack time at school and are made with calcium, no high fructose corn syrup, and are pretty low in sugar compared to some other bars.
The only downside is that now the kids can bomb me back.
Here is some information from Fiber One.
