Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies - Review and Giveaway

-This Giveaway Is Closed-


With my kids out of school for the summer, it seems like I'm buying more snacks and treats to keep in the house. This makes it harder than ever for me to control my cravings for something sweet. I want a guilt-free treat that tastes great and satisfies my sweet tooth. I also want a treat that my kids and I can all enjoy.

I was happy to learn that Fiber One has a new product that's just what I'm looking for - Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies.

The Chocolate Fudge brownies are made with chocolate-flavored chips and topped with a dark chocolate-flavored drizzle

The Chocolate Peanut Butter variety contains peanut butter chips topped with a peanut butter drizzle

These moist, chewy treats let you have what you crave while helping you stay on track with your balanced diet. With 5 grams of fiber, which is 20 percent of the Daily Value of Fiber, the new brownies are a smart snacking choice.

I had the opportunity to try out both varieties and I can tell you they are delicious. They're small, but not so small that they leave you feeling unsatisfied. They are very moist and flavorful. This is definitely a snack that I will buy on a regular basis. My kids like to grab one on the go when they want something sweet. I like to enjoy a Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownie with a cup of coffee or hot tea as a treat between lunch and dinner. They're also perfect for taking along if we're out running errands.
