Review and Giveaway!! – Fiber One 80 Calorie Cereal August 15, 2011

I have a little (not shocking) confession to make:  I don’t really care for dieting.  I like to eat good tasting food, and I really like to be full.  When I think of dieting, I think of small portions of mediocre tasting food.  And I’ve been waiting for someone to prove me wrong.


When I was given the opportunity by BlogSpark to review the new Fiber One 80 calorie honey squares cereal, I jumped at the chance.  I wanted to get out of my comfort zone, and really try something new.  They were saying this cereal is not only tasty, but filling as well.  I was up for the challenge!  Here’s the package they sent me:



I received:

  • 1 box of Fiber One 80 Calories Cereal
  • 1 sensor pedometer with USB connector to chart walking progress
  • 1 neoprene iPod/smartphone holder with armstrap


I was so excited to get my package in the mail, and immediately played around with the pedometer.  (How do those things work?!?!)  Then it was down to business.  The next morning I poured one serving of cereal for myself, and gave it a shot.


I was surprised to find that I actually really liked it.  It had a nice sweetness to it, and was a nice filling breakfast.  I even tried eating it dry as a snack, and it was good that way too.  I might try to use it in one of my trail mixes, like *this one* or *this one*.  Amazingly, someone may have started to change my mind about diet foods.


Do any of you love Hungry Girl as much as I do?  If you don’t know who she is, her imensly popular blog and new HGTV show introduce ways to cut calories without sacrificing a full belly (another one responsible for changing my dieting attitude).  Check out the video below to hear what she has to say about Fiber One 80.



Now that you are all hungry, and ready to run to get a box for yourself, I have a surprise for you!  Fiber One has generously offered to send a Prize Pack to one lucky This and That reader!  The winner will receive the same package as above, (1 box of Fiber One 80 cereal, 1 pedometer, and 1 ipod/smartphone armband holder).

    These days, I am eating special K with fruit and dash of milk for breakfast. It seems to fit well with WW, but I would love to try a new cereal so I don’t get bored. I’ve been through several cereal types and a yogurt phase, but I seem to burn out on breakfast choices after awhile.
