If you have a sweet tooth too, you might be happy to hear about the latest addition to the Fiber One family: new Chocolate Chip Cookie flavor Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies. These perfectly portioned individually wrapped snacks combine the best of two sweet worlds: cookies and brownies. Drooling yet? You've got Chocolate Chip Cookie flavor combined with semisweet chocolate chips in a cookie-batter brownie topped with a dark chocolaty flavored drizzle. And, before you feel your hips expand faster than the speed of light, they are just 90 calories and each serving provides 20 percent of the Daily Value of fiber (five grams).
Could a campaign come over my way that's any more perfect? Break out the snickers (no, not the candy bar), because the folks over at My Blog Spark and Fiber One sent me on over a "survival kit" (yes, they really called it that! LOL) that included a bright red mini tote bag branded with the Fiber One logo, a water bottle, ear tube buds, office turf - a mini grass growing kit, and I do mean mini, a box of Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies, Chocolate Chip Cookie flavor, and drum roll, you're never going to believe this one: a mini brain shaped stress ball toy. Yes, it looks like a brain. No, I am not kidding. I know we take our zombies seriously around here, but this one sent both my DH and I into one big laughing fit!
So could you survive the zombie apocalypse with this survival kit? Weeellll.... the box of Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies has six in them, so let's say if you weren't moving around much, you could stretch out 2-3 days worth of food with some good fiber to boot, and there's a bit of water if you remember to refill it... the grass could help clean a few toxins out of the air.... and well, if you toss the brain at a zombie, maybe it might distract them for a few seconds so you could make a break for the nearest office stairwell or exit? *snort snort giggle giggle*
Oh, it wasn't meant to be that kind of survival kit? Drat. ;) Anyways, I'm watching - or at least trying to watch - everything my DH eats, and these Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies are the perfect snack to toss in his lunchbox for him to snack on at work. the box is almost empty, so I'd say he definitely has been enjoying them! Nothing beats homemade from scratch of course, but I know not everyone has that luxury or actually wants to bake during the summer.
Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies are available in new Chocolate Chip Cookie, as well as Chocolate Fudge and Chocolate Peanut Butter flavors, all at just 90 calories each. You can find them at your favorite big box store or grocery store if you've got brownies on the brain now too.
