Better than a chocolate bar

By 

from Carpentersville, IL

Comments about Kellogg's FiberPlus - Bars Variety Pack - 20 ct.:

I purchased these on a sale as a snack for my kids and they are hooked. As soon as my son ate one he thought it was a candy bar. When I tried to send one to school with him as a snack he said he couldn't take candy for snack. They dont even realize that they are good for them! You can't beat that.

These are delicious, but easy to eat too many

By 

from Midlothian, VA

Comments about Kellogg's FiberPlus - Bars Variety Pack - 20 ct.:

I am not a fan of most fiber products. They taste like I'm eating straw, and have the same consistency. But, like most Americans, I desperately need to increase my fiber intake. I've tried cereals, granola bars, snack bars-- anything you can think of. So when I bought a small box of these and tasted the first one, I was thrilled. And promptly ate another one, and had another for a snack later in the day. And then my husband didn't want to be anywhere near me that evening. They are delicious, but until your body gets adjusted to eating so much fiber, don't just gobble them down, or your kids will be calling you "toot butt" for weeks.

Our family really enjoyed the variety pack, since it had all the different flavors in it. And since none of us can agree on what flavor's the best, it worked out well. My husband is usually very resistant to "health" foods, but he loves these too. Unfortunately, they are more difficult to find in the large variety packs than the FiberOne bars, so we usually wind up with the FiberOne even though we like these better.

Kellogg's FiberPlus taste great and are a good source for fiber.

By 

from Spring Creek, NV

Comments about Kellogg's FiberPlus - Bars Variety Pack - 20 ct.:

I love them, my kids love them, and even my husband likes them. They are a great source of fiber and taste fabulous. They taste so good you have to be careful not to eat to many they do still have a lot of fiber in them. I love the different flavors. Kelloggs fiber plus bars are like little gormet treats without the gormet price. There is nothing I don't like about them. My kids love them and getting your kids to like somthing nutritious is a chore in itself. My whole family love them and I'm sure yours will as well. Give them a try you won't regret it.

great for fiber snack

By 

from Commack, NY

Comments about Kellogg's FiberPlus - Bars Variety Pack - 20 ct.:

okay, i eat these practically everyday.  there is no reason to eat a regular granola bar now that they came out with these fiberplus granola bars.  i have been a long time fan of all kellogg's products, especially their cereal bars that are only 90 calories.  but for only thirty calories more, you get a much more filling bar that is more chocolatey and richer and thicker.  this bar really fills you up, i don't know any bar that has this much fiber, more than fiberone bars too.  so seriously, this is the bar to get.  i buy them in the stores, but have found that they are much cheaper online.  they aren't on sale too often, so it really pays to buy a big box and have it in your house.  especially if you live where it is snowing right now and can't run out to the supermarket too often.  the variety box contains different flavors and each flavor i have found to taste really great, yo uwill be surprised.

Fiber PLUS: Super Tasty - just be aware of the fiber source

By 

from Ocala, FL

Comments about Kellogg's FiberPlus - Bars Variety Pack - 20 ct.:

These bars do indeed taste better than the Fiber One bars. I've tried all three flavors and they're all really very tasty! I think Dark Chocolate & Almond is surprisingly my favorite.

 

Since the Fiber Plus Antioxidants bars are the new kids on the block in the Added Fiber category, I'll compare these a lot to Fiber One bars. That's probably the standard. These bars are a little smaller (36 g vs Fiber One's 40 g) but I don't really notice the difference. They are extremely similar to Fiber One bars in their nutritional value. They both have 9 grams of fiber and they are very similar in calories and fat, if you compare flavor to flavor (e.g. both have a peanut butter flavor which is naturally a little higher in fat than, say, the apple Streussel flavor of Fiber One - but the Apple Streussel is higher in sugar.) The Fiber Plus bars appear to tend to have less sodium, which is a plus for me, but the difference isn't massive. They also have the added benefit of added antioxidants in the form of Vitamin E and Zinc. Unlike Fiber One, all three flavors contain chocolate so if that's not your thing, then these bars won't be either.

 

One thing you should be aware of with all of these added fiber products, including both Kellogg's Fiber Plus bars and the Fiber One bars, is that they typically use inulin as their main source of fiber. It may appear as "Chicory Root" or "Chicory Root Extract" in the nutrition list. Inulin acts a little... funky in your body and it's not the insoluble fiber that helps with motility. Inulin gets broken down in the lower part of your intestines, where it is fermented. Part of the fermenting process is the release of *gas*. Therefore there is a chance you could experience some uncomfortable bloating, especially if you eat too many bars. Most of us do experience some gas, in the form of flatulence. So be aware of that when you eat the bar. It could be embarrassing if the timing is off. Personally I've been eating one bar per day (sometimes I want to eat another one because they do taste that good) and my body appears to have adjusted. It seems that I only have a problem now if I eat more than one bar.

 

I've read conflicting reports on the value of inulin as a fiber source, but I get the impression that the consensus is that adding fiber to your diet is generally a good thing, regardless of its source. However I definitely think you should not rely on these bars as your only or primary source of fiber. The best fiber comes in its natural form, mostly in fruits, vegetables, and grains.

Eat one every day

By 

from Roseland, FL

Comments about Kellogg's FiberPlus - Bars Variety Pack - 20 ct.:

These are great in the Dark Chocolate (Orange and Brown box). I stock up on them so I can grab one on the go each morning.  Love them, though they do seem to have shrunk in the last year, as everything else (what a waste of packaging on the environment).  So much better than the FiberOne bars which are too sweet and syrupy. Not a huge fan of the chocolate chip, too sweet.

Can't believe it has that much fiber!

By 

from Virginia Beach, VA

Comments about Kellogg's FiberPlus - Bars Variety Pack - 20 ct.:

This is a great bar to have on hand for after a work out or for a quick snack.  It is also a great way to get a lot of fiber in one setting but yet have a yummy tasting treat.  I love the double dark chocolate ones, whereas my youngest prefer the chocolate chip bars.  So, the pack of 20 is perfect for us.  I would highly recommend keeping these on hand.  The kids think they are getting a "candy bar" type snack yet you are giving them much needed and often lacking fiber.

Kelloggs FiberPlus bar, quick and healthy meal that tastes great

By 

from Belle Vernon, PA

Comments about Kellogg's FiberPlus - Bars Variety Pack - 20 ct.:

For anyone looking for a quick small meal, healthy snack, the Kelloggs FiberPlus bars are an excellent choice.  I've tried pretty much every nutritional meal/snack bar on the market, some far preferable to others, this one comes in the preferred brand on the list.  I have a severe TMJ disorder, which disables me from normal eating, my diet usually one of mostly liquid nutritional supplement drinks and small qty's of healthy soft food, or food that can be consumed in what I refer to as toddler bites.  The chocolate chip flavor most excellent, perfect level of taste, the consistency one that even I could easily break into tiny pieces and consume.  The nutritional value being very good, the fiber content always a bonus, I found it very tasty, could feel good that I'd gotten healthy nourishment in something I'd carefully chosen to consume for overall health, intake of healthy calories needed.  This product would be good for anyone from toddler to adult, highly suggest.

It was delicious.

By 

from Saugerties, NY

Comments about Kellogg's FiberPlus - Bars Variety Pack - 20 ct.:

I tried this bar and I thouroughly enjoyed it.  It was a delicious chocolate flavor and it really satisfied my sweet craving.  I really liked the idea I was getting fiber by eating this.  It was the perfect afternoon snack.  I actually purchase some more because my husband tried a piece and he really enjoyed it as well.  This is rarety as he does not eat anything healthy.  He says anything healthy does not taste good.  Boy did Kelloggs prove him wrong.  My sister had one and now she is hooked.  I eat them when I need just a litttle something.  I can enjoy them without feeling guilty.  I serve them to friends and houseguests and they liked them as well.  I stockpile when they are on sale.  I will always keep these on hand. YUM!  They also curbed my appetite which is great when you want to loose weight but still want something tastey.  They are also very portable which makes it great to carry to work or on a trip.

Very tasty

By 

from Carmel, IN

Comments about Kellogg's FiberPlus - Bars Variety Pack - 20 ct.:

I received a sample of this from viewpoints and was pleasantly surprised. I thought it was very tasty and definitely cured my sweet tooth. I gave a taste to my young son who wanted more. Very good to keep in a diaper bag or purse in a pinch. But, like all bars like these I will be more likely to buy on sale and with a coupon. Overall very tasty though!
