Product Crush

I get quite a few emails inquiring about what products I like and if I have any recommendations. Here  is a new product I am crushing on right now.  I, in no way, have been paid for or asked to complete this review.

Fiber One 80 Calorie Honey Squares.


Wow, what a mouthful for a name, seriously, who names a cereal by using a calorie count?!
Let me tell you, I purchased these on a whim while strolling around the grocery store. Yep, love to stroll and eat samples. I am that person.
Those end-caps always seem to suck me in and I end up with the most random items in my cart some times. Well, this time I hit the jackpot! I am a self proclaimed cereal addict. Have been since I was the age of 2 and addicted to Alphabet Cereal, remember those? I have no will power around cereal and have far too often eaten an entire box in one setting. I don’t discriminate, I eat pretty much any cereal including Raisin Bran and Grape Nuts, as well as Cookie Crisp and Cap’n Crunch and EVERYTHING in between.
I rarely purchase cereal unless I know my taste-tester (aka my husband) will be eating it as well (keeps me from snarfing it down the first day!).

Back to the topic at hand. This cereal reminds me of a love child between Oat Bran and Golden Grahams, in a good way. They mini squares (these are about 1/2 the size of a Golden Graham square) are slightly sweet and taste a bit like graham crackers but healthy, you know? Not only do they taste great but they only have 80 calories per 3/4 cup (i hate when serving sizes are only 1/2 cup, come on, who eats 1/2 cup of cereal?) and 10 grams of fiber! Yes please!  Even if you up the serving size to 1 cup you don’t need to feel guilty.

What I am most excited about is I can’t wait to try these in some recipes! I may crush some and use in a crust for a tart or some other baked goods, can not wait (I will probably buy another box for that since this one is 1/2 gone and I just bought it 2 days ago).

Some recipes I would love to try these in (will probably use both cereal and graham cracker crumbs):

Smore’s Bars
Key Lime Cheesecake
Strawberry Cream Pie
White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Magic Bars

  1. Fiber One scares me. I ate one of their granola bars and thought I was going to die…I obviously need to up my fiber! :P I’m loving Raisin Nut Bran right now..delicious!

    And in response to your comment on my blog…yes, Iowa City has a crappy Craigslist selection. I think it’s those darn college students. I lived there during pharmacy school and could never find any bargains!!
