Overview: If you want completely decadent candy bar swaps with totally reasonable nutritionals, these new Chex Mix Bars will be your new BFFs!
Taste: Ooey, gooey, rich, and sweet -- yet light and crispy. Both flavors are FANTASTIC. But the sweet 'n salty contrast of the Turtle makes it our favorite of the two.
Bottom Line: We LOVE these. They're portable, satisfying and crazy-delicious.
All-Bran Fiber Bars
PER SERVING (1 bar): 120 - 130 calories, 2.5g fat, 160mg sodium, 30g carbs, 10g fiber, 9 - 10g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
Flavors: Apple Cinnamon Streusel, Strawberry Drizzle
Overview:These bars are All-Bran's answer to the mega-successful Fiber One Chewy Bars. They come in interesting flavors and have decent stats.
Taste: Unfortunately, these bars are a far cry from their chewy, yummy, fiber-packed rivals (Fiber One bars). All-Bran's versions taste pretty icky and, oddly, the pieces all fall apart in your mouth. They actually taste like All-Bran cereal (and that is NOT a good thing AT ALL, people!).
Bottom Line: Nice try attempting to one-up F1 bars by adding an extra gram of fiber, All-Bran. That might cause people to sample these bars, but we're guessing that few will go back for a second box. Save your money, folks. And All-Bran, we've said this to you before and we know it's harsh, but you need product development people with better taste buds over there.
Overview: We'll admit we've been a bit hesitant to jump on the digestive wellness craze that's been hitting the market. But these bars intrigued us by offering up some unique flavors and AWESOME nutritionals.
Taste: These ROCK! The Blueberry Almond ones are totally delicious and fruity, the Peanut Butter flavor is as creamy and peanut buttery as you want it to be, and the Chocolate Raspberry bars will please choco-raspberry fans. These bars deliver!
Bottom Line: It's crowded out there in Bar-land, but we're happy to make room on our shelves (and in our stomachs) for these! Yum!!!!
South Beach Living Dark Chocolate Fudge Covered Wafer Sticks
PER SERVING (2 Sticks): 100 calories, 6g fat, 70 - 75mg sodium, 10g carbs, 3g fiber, 1g sugars, 5g protein -- POINTS® value 2*
Flavors: Hazelnut Crème, Peanut Butter
Overview:These Wafer Sticks are part cookie and part bar. They're crispy, light and chocolatey, and they have layers of flavored crème inside. Fancy!
Taste: The Hazelnut flavor is just okay, but the Peanut Butter one ROCKS OUR SOCKS! We're milk chocolate lovers in general, but this combination of dark chocolate and peanut butter is OUT OF THIS WORLD. Yes!!!
Bottom Line: Although we do love the PB ones, we haven't added them into regular rotation just yet.
