Fun with Fiber One Chewy Bars

School is out for the summer!

Just because the kids don't have to be in school doesn't mean that we spend much time at home.  From the pool, to the library, to the local amusement park, we are constantly on the go.  For us, being busy means that the girls are going to get hungry in the least convenient (aka most expensive) places.  To help keep hunger at bay so that we don't eat out too often during the summer, I always have snacks in my purse.  Some of my favorite packable snacks are nuts and granola bars.  They seem to do a good job of taking the edge off when hunger sets in without filling the girls up too much between meals.

MyBlogSpark and General Mills sent me a Fiber One Chewy pack with:
  • (1) Box of Fiber One Chewy Chocolate Bars
  • (1) Box of the Fiber One Chewy Strawberry PB&J Bars
  • Drawstring Sack Pack
  • Water Bottle
  • Flexi Flyer
  • Soccer Ball
  • Sidewalk Chalk
The girls have loved the Fiber One Oats and Chocolate granola bars for a while now, so we were very excited to try these new varieties.  The Fiber One Chewy Chocolate Bars were a big hit.  Honestly, I couldn't tell the difference between the Oats and Chocolate bars we were used to and the new Chewy Chocolate bars we were sent.  The Fiber One Chewy Strawberry PB&J Bars were a different story.  These bars definitely seemed to have a unique flavor.  In our house, we either loved them or hated them.  Pumpkin, my more adventurous eater and PB&J lover, really liked them.  Peanut was not a fan.  Doc, who also loves PB&J (but prefers grape jelly), didn't really like them either.  He didn't hate them enough to not eat it, but it wasn't something he would choose if given an option.  I actually didn't get a chance to try them.  They just never sounded that appetizing to me, so when I finally decided that I should try them for the review, I found that they were all gone!

So, don't be like me and miss your opportunity to try these Fiber One Chewy Granola Bars.  Enter for your chance to win the same prize pack I received!  If you win, not only will you have a fairly healthy snack for your kids this summer:
  • Fiber One Chewy bars contain 20% of the Daily Value of fiber and 10% of the Daily Value of calcium
  • These 100 or 110 calorie bars contain no high fructose corn syrup, and only 7 or 8 grams of sugar
You'll also have some goodies to keep them outside and active!  Good luck!
