Here are some interesting new and limited edition products found on store shelves by us and your fellow readers. If you’ve tried any of the products, share your thoughts about them in the comments.

Fiber One Meal Bar

Maybe it’s my inner Adrian Monk, but it bothers me that the Fiber One Strawberry Greek Yogurt Meal Bar box is bigger than the other Fiber One Meal Bar varieties. They’re all the same weight, but for some reason the Strawberry Greek Yogurt one is bigger. (Spotted by RiRi at Pick N’ Save.)

Nature Valley Breakfast Biscuits

Look at what you started, belVita! Are you happy with yourself? You’ve got us using the British version of “biscuits.” (Spotted by RiRi at Walmart.)

NutriGrain Fruit & Oat Harvest Bars

Real fruit, whole grains, and four grams of protein do not impress me, Nutri-Grain Fruit & Oat Harvest Bar, since other bars have them. How about a bar that has 20 grams of protein to give me energy, 20 grams of fiber to make me regular, and be roughly the size of my forearm so I can eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. (Spotted by Amanda at Target.)

Quaker Real Medleys Cereal

Quaker Real Medleys are available in hot cereal, snack bar, and now dry cereal form. I’m guessing it won’t be long before we see Quaker Real Medleys Breakfast Biscuits. (Spotted by Amanda at Walmart.)

Post Great Grains Digestive Blend Cereal

I’m curious to know what would happen if I started my day with a bowl of Post Great Grains Digestive Blend Cereal, had an Activia yogurt for a mid-morning snack, ate a Fiber One Meal Bar for lunch, and consumed another Activia yogurt for a mid-afternoon snack. Would my dinner consist of me sitting on the toilet regretting it all? (Spotted by Dubba at Walmart.)

    Speaking of belVita …. Am I the only one who sees the commercials (like the one with the guy golfing) and hear the guy say something along the lines of “… So I start every day with Velveeta”

    On your hypothetical regimen, you would be so regular that clocks could be set based on the movement of your bowels.

    The Kellogg’s nutri-grain bars I am assuming that they use cranberries and add artificial flavoring to make them “strawberry” and “blueberries”

    • alek says:

      I am assuming that the fiber one bars uses cranberries to replace strawberries.

      WHY COMPANIES HAVE TO USE CRANBERRIES AND LIE TO CONSUMERS?! COME ON REAL BERRIES IS BETTER!

    • Pimousse says:

      The Nutri-grain contains no cranberries. The blueberry contains blueberries in puree concentrate and juice concentrate form. The strawberry just has the puree concentrate.

      The Fiber one meal bar does contain “strawberry” flavored cranberries though.
