FiberPlus Chocolatey Peanut Butter Bars - Ad

FiberPlus Chocolatey Peanut Butter Bars

This bar is pretty much the Kellogg’s Chocolate Chip FiberPlus Bar, but with peanut butter chips on top, so I’ll save you the trouble of going to read that review and paste it in here with the appropriate changes for you.

Looks: Maybe if I had left this bar under my photography lamps a little longer, the chocolate would have gotten all melty like on the box. The oats look a little off too – I don’t see any white ones on the box. With peanut butter chips on top. 4 out of 5

Taste: The dark chocolate and almond version of this bar is amazing; but this one only “very good.” I found the milk chocolate a little too sweet, and the bar itself is a little less chewy than the dark chocolate one. Still very tasty though; don’t get me wrong. With peanut butter chips on top. 4 out of 5

Special K Blueberry Fruit Crisps

Special K Blueberry Fruit Crisps

Looks: Except for their slightly washed-out appearance (which I assure you is not just a side-effect of the photography), these “crisps” exist as depicted on the box. 4.5 out of 5

Taste: You may recall that I have an “appreciation” for blueberry Pop-Tarts. These crisps are basically mini blueberry Pop-tarts, but even better, because it’s socially acceptable to eat them at all hours of the day. No more yearning for Pop-Tarts at 3pm but withholding out of shame – I’ll be enjoying some variety of sugar-frosted blueberry cracker snack 24/7. 5 out of 5

Chex Mix Chocolate Chunk Bars

Chex Mix Chocolate Chunk Bar

Looks: This bar looks like someone took the bar on the box and bashed it with a hammer. There are none of those mini chocolate pieces, the Chex pieces are all crumbled, and the bar is struggling to maintain a rectangular shape. 2.5 out of 5

Taste: I think I have the actual recipe for this bar: take some Chex mix, pour some sickly-sweet chocolate all over it, bash it with a hammer, and then have a kindergarten class form this mix into bars. The bar is very gritty – it falls apart when you bite it, and the chocolate is too sweet for this to be in the same category as granola/nut bars, putting it firmly in the cookie/sweets category. 3 out of 5

Kellogg’s Cinnabon Bar

Tuesday, January 12th, 2010

Today’s Food in Real Life submission comes from member Razor512:

Kellogg's Cinnabon Bar

Looks: “Compared to the packaging, it looks pretty close. The amount of filling looks accurate and apart from slight discoloration of some of the icing (due to it absorbing some of the oils from the pastry layer), the icing looks accurate also. Only downside for the look is that it looks smaller in real life than on the packaging (due to the perspective of the pastry shown on the wrapper as well as there being more horizontal rows of icing on the pastry).” 4.5 out of 5

Taste: “It tastes pretty good; the icing is slightly crispy while the rest of the pastry is soft. It has a good balance of flavors (where none are too overpowering compared to others).” 5 our of 5
