You know what I love? Cheesecake. Well, it’s on a long list of fabulous things in my life, but seriously, cheesecake. It was the only thing I craved back when I was pregnant for my daughter, and it’s still my favorite dessert (and yes, I DID have cheesecake for my birthday last weekend, hehe). But, let’s be honest, cheesecake is amazing, but it’s a far cry from health food. When I can find a smarter way to indulge, I’m curious, to say the least. I recently tried out Fiber One Cheesecake Bars, and I have to say – well done, Fiber One. They’re a pretty amazing splurge for just 150 calories.
I tried both the strawberry and salted caramel flavors, and the texture and taste are both spot-on, and since it’s a Fiber One recipe, it’s also got 20% of your daily fiber. So whenever you’ve got that sweets-craving (which always hits me about 3:00 in the afternoon – just about the time I’m sitting in the school pickup line), it’s a great way to indulge without all the guilt of the real thing.
We’re back in the swing of the school routine in just a few short weeks (and your kids may have gone back already I know a lot of schools have), and on the days where a sweets-fix is particularly tough to resist, I can grab an individually wrapped cheesecake bar and enjoy it by myself, in the few moments of quiet I get between my home office and collecting my kiddo from school. If you’re a cheesecake lover, you know this is a big deal! You don’t have to buy an entire cheesecake for just one snack, and it’s much cheaper than those pregnant days where I got one slice to go from a neighborhood restaurant for $8 – plus a tip. And with Fiber One Cheesecake Bars, you don’t even need a fork.
Fiber One is celebrating their new cheesecake bars by kicking off its first Cheesecake Appreciation Month (starting on National Cheesecake Day, July 30th, and continuing through August 31) with the Fiber One Cheesecake Appreciation Month Sweepstakes on Facebook, and an Edible Billboard at Grand Central Station in NYC! The new bars are available nationwide this month at major grocery & retail stores.
If you love cheesecake too, then Fiber One wants to know. You can celebrate Fiber One Cheesecake Month using the hashtags #FiberOneCheesecake and #FiberOne #Cheesecake on social media and tag @FiberOne.
