Fiber One Strawberry Greek Yogurt Meal Bar Review

After finding the Chocolate Peanut Butter Fiber One Mealbar to be rather tasteless, I did not expect much from the Strawberry Greek Yogurt flavor.  It certainly is more flavorful, but not necessarily in a good way.  I found it to seem very sweet without any actual flavor to it.  The yogurt tastes like yogurt which is not much of a flavor, though, but there certainly is no strawberry flavor.

Looking at the bar it does not even look like it has strawberries.  Investigating the ingredients list I found that is because it is actually strawberry flavored cranberries in it.  Even if they are flavored with strawberry flavoring or whatever its called, they still taste more like cranberries.  Not a bad thing in my opinion, as I like cranberries, but certainly misleading product name and they seem less flavorful than regular cranberries, which may be because the whole bar has some odd nondescript overbearing flavor (soy protein powder, perhaps?).

While the Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor ones were disappointing, I would still consider buying them in the future if a good deal.  The Strawberry Greek Yogurt ones are definitely not worth it even if they were at the dollar store.  If the flavor aspect was not bad enough, they are also flimsy and fall apart way too easily and I did not even take them on the go, which I imagine would lead to them ending up very smashed and/or in pieces before you got to eating them.  Only good thing is they are filling with the 9 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein.

Fiber One Chocolate Peanut Butter Meal Bar Review

I am not that big on bars, but they are convenient to have on hand for quick snacks. The ones I mostly like are Chocolate Peanut Butter ones, especially the Quaker Chewy Granola Bars.  Thus, I was really excited to get to try the Fiber One Mealbars as a BzzAgent.

One of the main appeals of the Fiber One Chocolate Peanut Butter Mealbar for me is that they have 10 grams of protein.  Not as much as protein bars, but certainly more than a typical granola bar and thus a good in between option.

The texture of the Fiber One Chocolate Peanut Butter bars is something I liked, as it was much like a granola bar, although it stayed together better than the Chewy ones I like.

The taste, however, was not appealing.  It was not bad at all, but it also was not exactly good.  Instead it was rather plain seeming.  It was not chocolatey nor was it peanut buttery.  It was a little peanutish, but mainly it was just plain (oat flavor, maybe?).

Overall I would buy Fiber One Chocolate Peanut Butter Mealbars, but only if they were on sale and/or I had a coupon that made them the most affordable option.  Even then I would probably only have them to have on hand for the every once and a while need for an on the go filling snack and not for my emergency kits like we mainly buy these type of products for.
