Kellogg's Chocolate Chip Fiber Plus Bar

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. 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. 4 out of 5

Special K Honey Nut Bar

Looks: Real-bar looks exactly like box-bar. Stay tuned for the taste rating… 5 out of 5

Taste: Welcome back! This bar is kind of dry, kind of sticky, and kind of tasty – just what you’d expect from an amalgamation of nuts pressure-fitted into the shape of a brick. It’s definitely not on the level of a FiberPlus Dark Chocolate Almond Bar, but if you like nuts, you’d be nuts to pass up this bar. (See what I did there?) 3 out of 5

FiberPlus Dark Chocolate Almond Bar

Looks: The chocolate on the bar appears to be still melted, but other than that, the box matches the bar. The bar even had those strings of caramel between the pieces when I first pulled it apart, but they fell before I could get a picture. (Sorry, I couldn’t find a lone almond to set beside the bar to get the ultimate comparison picture.) 4.5 out of 5

Taste: Oh, man. Chewy, chocolatey, with kind of a coconutty texture, if that makes sense. Definitely one of the best fiber or granola bars I’ve ever tried. I could eat these all day, but with each bar having 35% of my daily fiber needs, I imagine I’d spend all day tomorrow doing something very different. 5 out of 5

Kellogg’s Special K Bar

Special K Bar

Looks: It’s pretty close to the packaging. A few things are off: the color is a bit dark, the chocolate drizzle isn’t as uniform as advertised, and the bar’s edges are kind of rounded off. Over all though, it’s ok. 4.5 out of 5

Taste: First, I have to say, this bar is small. It’s only four inches long, and weighs in at 0.8 oz. (It’s so light that you might actually weigh less after eating it.) That put aside, it tastes surprisingly good for 90 calories. It’s chewy, with a nice, almost caramel-y flavor (although there’s no caramel in the bar), and the scent of the chocolate wafts nicely up to your nose even before you start eating it. It’s good for about four bites, so if you’re looking to get filled up, you’d be better off with a banana or an apple, but for a low-calorie sweet treat, it does the job. 4 out of 5
