Pink Lemonade Metamucil

According to the experts, who probably wear lab coats and ask others to call them Dr. So-and-So, we should be consuming 25-30 grams of fiber per day, which is roughly more than half a loaf of whole wheat bread, a little more than an entire can of kidney beans, or approximately the amount of fiber found in the large cardboard box a refrigerator comes in. The experts also say that most don’t consume an adequate amount of fiber every day, except for Jack LaLanne, prune lovers, and panda bears. I know I need more fiber in my diet, but I feel there’s a major problem with fiber. It’s just not flamboyant enough.

Thankfully, there’s Pink Lemonade Metamucil which now makes fiber a little more FA-BU-LOUS.

Sure, it’s better for me to get my fiber from real foods like whole wheat bread, brown rice, bran cereal, vegetables, fruit, Taco Bell’s bean burrito, and Idaho potato vodka, but they just don’t have the sense of style that the Pink Lemonade Metamucil does. Many of the foods that have a decent amount of fiber come in the color brown, but despite all the efforts of UPS, brown has NEVER been in style. Some of you might be saying vegetables and fruits are colorful, however, I say to those people, J. Crew clothing is also colorful, but I would never be seen wearing any of it.

The Pink Lemonade Metamucil tastes like pink lemonade and for something that’s sugar free, it’s surprisingly sweet. Thank you, aspartame. It’s just as flavorful, fiber-rific, fierce and fabulous as the Berry Burst Metamucil. It’s also several times tastier and better looking than the plain old original orange Metamucil, which makes people drinking it look like they should be at a Florida farmers forum. The cloudy pink color of the Pink Lemonade Metamucil is totally fabulous, although its slightly grainy texture is not so hot, but it’s what I expected from a fiber supplement. However, if you like your fiber to be as flamboyant as a flamingo or Richard Simmons, this Metamucil’s for you.

  1. 10 bucks for a fiber supplement?!?! Thanks but no thanks. However, I rofl’d at your video for a good 30 seconds. Thanks for making my day, Marvo. By the way, I really liked the music in the video. Who was the music done by?

  2. This is perfect if you’re queer & constipated, I commend you for doing this review during Pride Month.

  3. ChrisP – I don’t know who the music is done by. It’s just one of the random musical selections that comes with the iMovie video editing software on my Mac. It’s called “Acoustic Sunrise.”

    Aimee – Holy crap! To be honest, I didn’t even know it was Pride Month. I guess my holiday gaydar is working.

  4. You get a measly 5 grams of fiber per teaspoon? 15 g of fiber per tablespoon (and it looks like you mixed one tablespoon into the glass of water)? So: You need to drink TWO of those glasses to get your minimum daily fiber requirement? Ugh.

    I’d rather eat the box the refrigerator came in–or watch a Kevin Costner movie, which has a similar effect to fiber on one’s bowels.

  5. I liked the music also. It does have that Apple-Commercial-ish sound, now that I know its origin. Maybe it was composed by Steve Jobs.

  6. Sludgetastic is RIGHT!

    Great video, and I’m not ready for Metamucil yet. I’ll eat a lot of popcorn instead (but not Jiffy Pop!)

  7. Now that Metamucil is well on its way to offering new flavors, they need to get on the chocolate bandwagon. Metamucil Hot Fudge would do the trick. They could advertise “It looks the same coming out as it does going down!”

  8. Real men eat veggies. Old people drink fiber. I’m neither, so I cheat by getting my fiber through Raisin Bran, the cereal that makes you fart like there’s no tomorrow.

  9. that looked pretty skanky. I will stick to eating frosted shredded wheat [with lots and lots and lots of sugar] if I need it… then again, I think I would even rather eat the BOX to the shredded wheat. It has a similar gloopy, clumping effect when soggy.

  10. Alisha- I love soggy frosted shredded wheat! Sometimes I even let a bowl of frosted shredded wheat sit in a fridge for 20 or so minutes to let it get soggy. It’s like bread pudding, in a sense: delicious. But then again, I’m the kind of guy who likes to eat his cake soaked in milk. Unfrosted brownies are a tossup, depending on my mood.

  11. Brenda – Watching Kevin Costner movies causes liquids to come out of more than one orifice for me.

    Chuck – Steve Jobs can do ANYTHING!!!

    nat – I’d eat popcorn for fiber, but I hate getting kernel krap stuck between my teeth.

    Shannon – God, I totally feel like one. I need Ben Gay.

    Michael – Citrucel (Metamucil’s competitor) has a chocolate version which I reviewed last year or so. It’s not bad, but it definitely has to be mixed with milk.

    Reprobate – Hmm…I don’t fart when I eat Raisin Bran. Maybe you’re eating it wrong. Or maybe I’m not eating it right. You eat it like an enema, right?

    Alisha – There should be an Xtreme Frosted Shredded Wheat with frosting on both sides.

    liz – hmm…

  12. So what happens if you ad 3 table spoons? Would it be like taking a really big jello shot? Hey theres an idea. What happens if you mix it with vodka?

  13. The music on the video wasn’t fabulous enough. I hear New Kids on the Block has a new album. That would go great with Metamucil.

  14. Of course that is what happens to fiber, since that is exactly what is does in your stomach. It expands, absorbs water, and causes things to move smoothly through your intestine. Silly rabbits.
