Not long ago, Jenn received a huge box of Special K yummies to review, and, luckily for yours truly, she handed over a few goodies for me to review.
See, I’ve always been a Special K girl (with a weakness for Special K Red Berries cereal), so noshin’ on some new eats was a welcome assignment. Special K has come up with a line of foods called Nourish that are a multi-grain blended with quinoa. (Remembered how we mentioned ’em yesterday?) They’re not exactly the diet and weight-loss foods I tend to expect from Special K — the Nourish line is geared more toward making you feel full and satisfied and full of energy. It looked and sounded like a real slam dunk, so without further adieu I got snackin’.
Special K Nourish Nutrition Bars Reviews
When I read the back of the nutrition facts I was a little surprised that these small bars range in the 160 to 180 calorie range when so many Special K products promote the fact that they’re less than 100. But one thing I have learned from our Fit Bottomed leaders is that calories aren’t everything, and after munching on one I soon realized I was full before I finished the whole bar.
Success, right? Well, maybe, maybe not.
I looked a little further into the nutrition facts and found that although these bars have 8 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber (which is their main advertisement and pretty great), they also contain 11 grams of sugar and 6 grams of fat (not so great). They do contain quite a few fortified vitamins that are super important for women though: 25 percent calcium, 30 percent iron, 40 percent riboflavin, 80 percent B6 and 100 percent folic acid, to name a few.
Next, let’s talk flavor.
