Kellogg’s Frosted Mini Wheats Crunch Cereal

When we were growing up, we felt that cereal wasn’t satisfying.  We had to eat a lot to feel full.  Now, though, various companies are doing their best to entice us not just with flavor, nutrition, and fiber to fill us up, but texture, too.  Zach usually sticks to three favorite cereals and August likes only two, so we thought to give Kellogg’s Frosted Mini Wheats Crunch a go and see if we would include it in our rotation.

The flavor was pleasant – mildly sweetened wheat, kind of like regular mini wheats with brown sugar.  However, the crunch was the surprise.  No amount of soaking in milk will soften these nuggets.  Kellogg’s is serious when they put CRUNCH in capital letters on the box, because these are super crunchy!  If you don’t like soggy cereal, or even softened cereal, this is for you.  For us, though, we’re not a fan of the super crunch.  We will stick to Cheerios (two flavors, peanut butter and cinnamon burst), Raisin Bran Crunch, and Shredded Wheat.

FiberOne Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

Often when we hear “fiber” we think cardboard.  That is most definitely not the case for FiberOne’s line of brownies.  We tried the chocolate peanut butter variety, and we were very surprised.

For a high fiber product, Zach thought it would be gritty and grainy, but it was nothing like his expectations.  He also noted that, even at 90 calories, it was fairly filling for a snack.  Indeed, it is small, but it is delicious.

Despite its size and the “fiber” label, the brownie had an abundance of peanut butter in two forms: chips on the inside, drizzle on the out.  The natural peanut butter balanced well with the chocolate, so it was not overly sweet.  It was unexpected how moist it was, being a processed food product and not fresh from the local bakery.

If you have a sweet tooth, or if you have trouble getting fiber into your diet, give these a try.
