Review of Chocolate Fudge Fiber One Toaster Pastries

Food Review: Fiber One Toaster Pastries

When I was in college, I had a serious Pop-Tarts weakness, though I don't let myself indulge in them anymore. However, I'll admit I was excited to try Fiber One's version, which isn't low-cal or really "healthy," but at least they're high in fiber! And who doesn't love fiber right?

Basically, if you like(d) Pop-Tarts, you'll love Fiber One Toaster Pastries, but if you shy away from processed foods, you'll probably steer clear of these too. The tarts come in blueberry, brown sugar cinnamon, chocolate fudge, and strawberry, and of course I tried the chocolate. So is the indulgence worth it?

As you can see, the Fiber One Toaster Pastries look a lot like Pop-Tarts, and they have the assorted corn-based ingredients to match, including high fructose corn syrup. At 190 calories per pastry, they aren't exactly low-calorie, though not too bad if you eat nothing else for breakfast.

Of course, they also have 5 grams of fiber, which is 20 percent of your daily allowance and serves its purpose. This treat kept me full until lunch. But 5 grams of fiber isn't enough to convince me to eat something so artificial for breakfast — though as an occasional indulgence, they taste pretty darn good. Is it worth it to you, every once in a while? Check out a closer look at the nutritional information below.
