Fiber One Caramel Delight Cereal: A Review

Yesterday, I did the grocery shopping, which is a rarity, because Papa Bear usually does it. (We only have one working vehicle right now, and three kiddos, so it's easier for him to do the shopping after he gets off work.)

Well, as I was ambling up and down the aisles, with no list in hand, but only an idea of the few things that I needed to pick up, I happened upon the cereal aisle. Now, if you know me, you know that I could eat cereal morning, noon, and night. But I don't. Because I want to be a good example to my kids. And because I need to somehow get some vegetables into my diet.

Anyways, I noticed the Fiber One cereals on sale. We have tried, and like the Fiber One bars (my favorite is the Oats and Caramel...see a pattern here?), and we have also tried, and like the Fiber One Toaster Pastries (but we don't buy them, because they are still pretty high in fat and sugar, kinda like Pop-Tarts). So, I thought, hmmmm, wonder how good these cereals are.

Normally, I won't pay more than $2 per box of cereal, but I figured, since we pay more than $2 a box on our beloved Nature's Path Pumpkin Flax Plus Granola, and the matching bran flake cereal (I didn't want to type the whole name out.), we could get away with paying $2.50 a box on the Fiber One cereals. I got three different flavors to try:

Caramel Delight, Honey Clusters, and Raisin Bran Clusters

Of course I just HAD to open the Fiber One Caramel Delight cereal this morning. I munched on a few pieces straight from my cereal bowl, sans milk, and I found that while they are nicely sweetened and caramel tasting on the outside, the inside pretty much tastes like fiber cereal. That's ok though, because when you add bananas and milk, you could almost believe that you're eating a caramel flavored Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

All in all, I really like the Caramel Delight Fiber One cereal, and I would buy again. My biggest complaint is the amount of sugar, but I guess that's what they have to do to get people to eat fiber cereal, right? I mean, that's the only way I'm eating it...if it's a little on the sweet side, and it doesn't get soggy in milk too quickly.

I'll let you know when I try the others.

Have a blessed day in Christ!
