- Peanut Butter Bar
- Chocolate Brownie Bar
- Orange Cranberry Bar
- Cinnamon Raisin Bar
- Banana Walnut Bar
The texture is chewy with tiny bits of flax and millet and sometimes puffed rice.
As soon as you open the package you get a burst of orange or peanut butter or banana, etc. smell depending on which variety you are eating.
These are not as sweet as the Fiber One bars which is probably a good thing. but they are sweet.
I found that the bars really fill me up. With 12g of fiber, these really keep you satisfied. I love that they have 8g of soluble fiber and 4 g. of insoluble fiber. It's good to get a mix.
My daughter was hesitant to try one. They don't look exactly appetizing. She tried the peanut butter bar and really liked it. I would be thrilled to get my kids to eat these on hiking trips instead of the Fiber One bars.
