Since having children, I'm not much of a morning person. I don't often wake up and cook a huge breakfast. (We do frequently have breakfast for dinner, though. Because I like breakfast food. Just not mornings.)
First thing in the morning, when I'm stumbling around with my eyes barely open, and the kids are yelling that they're starving, I'm looking for something quick and easy for all of us. Thanks to My Blog Spark, I recently had the opportunity to try out some new (to me,) products from Fiber One.
The first item I tried was the Fiber One Oats and Chocolate Chewy Bars. These granola bars are sweet enough to satisfy a mid afternoon sweet tooth, but substantial enough to count as a real breakfast, with a glass of milk. They're a good source of calcium, and contain 9 grams of fiber in each bar. If you're looking for something to keep the rumbly tummy at bay on a hurried morning, I'd recommend these.
The second product I tried was the Fiber One Raisin Bran Clusters. They were a little different from the raisin bran I usually eat, in that they include both bran flakes and honey clusters. The cereal was tasty and filling, as you'd expect. Each serving contains 11 grams of fiber.
My Blog Spark also sent me a $25 gift card to the Safeway family of stores to stock up on Fiber One products.
As usual, My Blog Spark has also offered to host a giveaway here, so that one of you will have the opportunity to try the same products I did.
One winner will receive the same package I got, which will contain a coupon for a free box of Fiber One Cereal, a coupon for a free box of Fiber One bars, and a $25 gift card to be redeemed at Safeway, (or Dominick´s, Tom Thumb, Randalls, Vons, or Genuardi's.)
For the first, mandatory entry, go visit the Fiber One website, and let me know which variety of cereal or bars you'd like to try.
For additional, optional entries, you may do any or all of the following. (Please leave a comment for each.)
