#FiberPlus Cereals from Kellogg's

Have you tried the FiberPlus Cereals from Kellogg's?  I recently had the opportunity to try both the Cinnamon Oat Crunch and the Berry Yogurt Crunch.  I really like the Berry Yogurt Crunch - whole grain wheat & rice flakes with berry and yogurt flavored clusters.  It has a really great flavor, and it's really filling.  Normally I don't pay attention to the serving size when I pour a bowl of cereal, so the first day I tried it, I just poured some into the bowl.  And I got full before I finished!  So, after that I actually measured - 1 cup cereal.

One serving provides 40% of your daily fiber as well as several essential nutrients including the antioxidant vitamins C and E.  I've seen the commercials where people seem to think anything with fiber has to taste nasty, but that's not the case.  This stuff is good! 

I wasn't as impressed with the Cinnamon Oat Crunch.  I mean, the flavor is really good, but I just didn't like the texture - at least with milk.  It's actually pretty good straight out of the box, dry, without milk.  It would make a good snack or breakfast-on-the-go.  Measure out individual servings, and bag them up ready to grab on the way out the door.  It would have to be better than grabbing fast food on the way to work, if that's what you usually do.  Right?  And you get fiber and antioxidants, too.

Let me know if you've tried these cereals or any of the other Kellogg's FiberPlus products and what you think.  I'm thinking the Caramel Pecan Crunch cereal looks really good.

disclosure: I was provided 2 free boxes of cereal from Kellogg's.  No other compensation was received, and all opinions are 100% mine.
