Through BzzAgent I was selected to participate in a free sampling of General Mills new Fiber One protein cereal. I was sent two free boxes and coupons to share with my family and friends. This blog is dedicated to the Fiber One Protein Cereal Cranberry Almond flavor.
I started sampling the Fiber One protein cereal Maple Brown Sugar flavor first so I’ve grown accustomed to the texture of this Fiber One serial. You can read my Maple and Brown Sugar review here. I’m still not an uber fan of the puffed wheat texture of the cereal so I’m going to leave my texture rating at 4 stars. The dried cranberries aren’t my favorite either they tend to get stuck in my teeth and there’s really not enough of them to enjoy the flavor they add to the cereal. There’s really only the occasional burst of cranberry flavor in the Fiber One Protein Cereal Cranberry Almond cereal.
The Fiber One Protein Cereal Cranberry Almond cereal is still a sweet cereal but its not near as sweet as the Fiber One Protein Cereal Cranberry Almond cereal. I would say that the Cranberry Almond cereal is the more ‘grownup’ flavor out of the two but I prefer the Maple Brown Sugar cereal over all. They both taste nice in my evening yogurt and I really have no preference in this application. The taste of the yogurt over powers the taste of the cereal so either cereal tastes about the same when mixed in yogurt.
I don’t eat my cereal in the morning like most people; I eat my cereal at night as a dessert substitute. I will either enjoy a bowl of cereal or I will mix the cereal in to my yogurt. This has helped me watch my calories intake and helps me with my food cravings. One serving of Fiber One Protein Cereal Cranberry Almond has 220 calories. One full serving is almost too much for my needs so I typically will eat half a serving or in my yogurt I use about 1/4 of a serving.
One thing I really like about Fiber One is that it aids in my ‘tummy troubles’. The Cranberry Almond cereal has 20%. I prefer a higher fiber content in my cereal and the 35% which is why I gave it 4 stars in the digest support rating. I do not eat enough fiber throughout the day so I like to get most of it in my cereal. I would be happy if the Fiber One Protein Cereal Cranberry Almond offered a higher fiber content but I also like that the Fiber One cereals offer a variety of options. Their cereals have various levels of fiber in them making something available for everyone. The lower fiber content in this flavor wouldn’t prevent me from buying it again.
