I’m a 36-year-old gay man and I enjoy fiber-rich snacks and Metamucil wafers. Fiber is important to everyone’s diet—and nearly all Americans just don’t get enough of it! As a lover of all things coffee and all things fiber, I was immediately drawn to this snack on my last visit to my local Albertson’s. What follows is my honest, no-bull review of the Fiber One 70 Calorie Coffee Cake Soft-Baked Bar.
I prefer to dive into a Fiber One 70 Calorie Coffee Cake Soft-Baked Bar mid-morning with my second or third cup of coffee. It's a great in-between snack after my usual Grape Nuts, fruit, and nonfat yogurt breakfast and before my low-carb chicken salad wrap luncheon.
According to the website, these new Fiber One 70 Calorie Coffee Cake Soft-Baked Bar treats have a new recipe. This new recipe boasts less sugar—that's good! But you might be disheartened by this product’s reliance on palm oil byproducts and sugar alcohol sweeteners—that's bad!
But look past those shortcoming and you'll be pleasantly surprised by the Fiber One 70 Calorie Coffee Cake Soft-Baked Bar's delightful cinnamon crunch, low-calorie footprint, and a generous helping of nourishing, binding fiber.
Pros: A delightful fiber-rich snack that pairs well with just about any coffee beverage.
Cons: An unmistakable erythritol aftertaste that you want to get used to, but never do. Fiber supplement beginners ought to start slow on this snack bar to minimize potential gastrointestinal discomfort.
What Others Are Saying
Out of nearly 6,000 global ratings on Amazon, this product boasts an impressive 4.3 out of 5-star rating. Lower ratings are generally due to shipping inconveniences and/or incorrect package size. I always make sure to pick mine up at my local grocer after checking the Sunday supplements for coupons and sales.
If you’re looking for a good way to pack in 6 grams of fiber in a 70 calorie sweet coffee snack, look no further than the Fiber One 70 Calorie Coffee Cake Soft-Baked Bar. And why stop there? Be sure to check out Fiber One's full line-up of fiber-rich sweets in your grocer’s digestive ailment foodstuffs section. I particularly enjoy the Supreme Fudge Brownie.
Final Score: 82 (all five categories multiplied by two, with 10 Bonus Buzzy points because, as I said before, I’m a gay 36-year-old man who loves fiber-rich snack foods).
