My youngest son was telling me about the Fiber One 90 calorie bars the other day. He said he eats them on his way to work. He highly recommended the chocolate, caramel & pretzel variety, claiming it was as good as a Snickers candy bar. Well THAT got my attention. A ninety calorie Snickers bar? Gotta try it!
So yesterday, I bought a couple of boxes of Fiber One Bars. I hadn’t yet had lunch and the fermented peach yogurt I’d had for breakfast was still on my mind.
and taste buds I opened the box as soon as I got in the car, unwrapped the new delight with great expectations, and guess what? It was delicious! I called my sister and told her about this heavenly 90 calorie treat. I think I even sent her a picture of the box, as she was in route to the grocery store.
I spoke with my sister a few minutes ago. She said, “Fiber One?” me, “Yes”. Her ~ “They taste like cardboard! And they were $3.99 a box.” I was certain she had picked up the wrong kind. “Pretzels? Chocolate? Caramel?” “Yes”. Well, Bummer.
I just left my pantry and pulled out another bar for lunch. It now taste like cardboard. Thanks, Renae. You are also the reason I quit eating the fat off of the liverwurst when I was three. Hmmmm? Maybe I should listen to my sister?
the power of suggestion
p.s. Don’t tell hubby. I convinced him this morning that they taste like candy bars.
