My First Giveaway!


I know that I am the only one who has ever went searching for something to eat, grabbed whatever was easiest, say... a bag of nacho cheese chips... and 10 minutes later found themselves licking cheesey fingers and wondering what happened to that bag of chips.   Was my hunger satisfied?  Eh.  More like sedated for a while.  But not really satisfied.  After all, those chips aren't filling, won't stay with you for any length of time at all.  So why exactly did I eat them?

I was hungry, and they were quick, but not filling.  So I should have went for something more, but nope, I didn't. So, when BlogSpark sent me the opportunity to do a review for Fiber One, I jumped at the chance!  Fiber One sent me this really kewl set, a box of Fiber One cereal, a food scale, this really neat bowl, a couple of note pads and a nice steel water bottle.  Just a note about the kewl bowl, it has a freezable , removable ring that comes in it that you can put in the freezer to use to take cold stuff with you!  It also has a smaller bowl inside that sits in the ring, that you could put, oh, say cereal in and fill the bigger bowl with milk and take your cereal and milk to work with you!  And the top, well it has a pop out spoon on it!  Perfect for taking a bowl of cereal along as a snack!  Or maybe some fruit and yogurt!




I have to admit, I am a sugary, sweet, fluff filled cereal kind of girl.  I will go for the biggest box with the kewlest prize in a heartbeat!  So I was hesitant about trying Fiber One.  The preconceived notion that it was an old lady cereal... you know all full of fiber and stuff to keep the plumbing flowing, was predominant in my mind when I poured the first bowl.  But I figured I signed up for it, to give my health a boost, and I was gonna take the plunge and jump right in.

I was definitely surprised! I opened the box to find there were actually two individually packaged bags, I'm assuming to keep them fresh.  I took a deep sniff, and thought they smelled like a familiar cereal I fed my kids when they were small.  So I took a couple pieces and popped them in my mouth DRY even!  I was shocked!   I actually liked this cereal!  With a nice crunch that I depend on to wake me up of a morning,  I was amazed, this "old lady" cereal had a sweet, nutty flavor that hits the right spot!  Next on the agenda was a nice bowl of milk.  The cereal held up well in milk, keeping its crunch and the sweetness was perfect!  I will definitely be buying this cereal again!

Now for the good stuff,

  • One serving of Fiber One Original cereal provides more than half (57%) of the Daily Value of fiber.

  • Fiber One Original cereal is a tasty way to start your morning on the right track with 0 grams of sugar, 14 grams of fiber, 60 calories and 1 gram of fat per serving.

To top off all this greatness, Fiber One is giving one of my readers a chance to win the very same package they gave me!  Check out the picture above for the contents!  Now, how can you win this fantastic prize pack?  EASY.....

I learned soluble fiber can help to reduce blood cholesterol levels, thereby reducing risk of heart disease.

I follow with gfc (psychdog). I haven't tried any crazy diets. I did notice I was hungry when I started weight watchers and cut down my portion size, but I did get used to that after a week or so. I love fiber one products. Thanks!

I like the interactive tool on their website that helps you add up your fiber. I didn't realize they used fiber one on Biggest Loser or that you can print coupons from the website.
