This is my new favorite cereal. I eat it pretty much every day of the week and I have not gotten sick of it yet. It has great taste, has TONS of fiber (20% of the daily value) and protein (10g) per serving. And one serving is only 6 WeightWatchers PointsPlus Points. So we got that out of the way – let’s hit the major categories:

Taste: Delicious. I am favoring the Maple Brown Sugar right now because the pecans, maple, and granola all work very well together. Combined with a splash of Vanilla Soy milk and it really hits the spot. The Cranberry Almond also was a good cereal, but the family is not a fan generally of cranberries, so we just stock up the maple brown sugar.

Nutrition: As seen above, it has 20% of your daily requirements for fiber and has 10g of protein per serving.  Those are pretty good numbers.

Price: Competitive. I found it less expensive by a dollar at Target than at Kroger and Wal-Mart was more in the Target range of pricing. But about $3.50-4.50 for a box. The boxes tend to last me about a week or so.

Ways to Spice it up: There are many ways to use the Fiber One Protein Cereals to your advantage. Of course, you can just eat it straight up – without milk. You can add milk. You can put it in a non-fat Greek yogurt and add some fruit to keep you going. You can put it on top of ice cream for an added crunch that is also good for you. The possibilities are endless.

Does it fill you up? Yes. Yes it does. I have gone through many types of granolas and the Fiber One is the first one to really fill me up. The added protein helps keep you full and if you do the yogurt mix-in, the added protein will get you through the morning all the way through a workout and into lunch.

Should I buy it? Yes. No question about it. Try a box today. You won’t regret it.

Overall, this is the best cereal I have had in a while. It combines nutrition with taste, and what more can you ask for in a cereal?

Pierogies. Hard to spell. Delicious to eat. Where have they been my whole life? Or, more aptly, why didn’t I try them until this campaign? Basically, a pierogi is a dumpling filled with potato and another filling, usually cheese, but they can have other things. Mrs. T’s goes with the Potato & Cheese for the most part but have a TON of varieties. See them here.

Do you own a Keurig brewer? I do. It’s wonderful as it allows me to have many different types of coffee without having to make a whole pot and without having to worry about having several bags of coffee open (and quickly deteriorating in taste). One of the big producers of K-Cups is Green Mountain Coffee. Their coffee is spot on in taste. It’s neither too bitter, too bold, too weak, too light, it’s just right. So when I heard they were coming out with two new blends for their new Wellness Collection,” I was certainly intrigued.

No, not Goldfinger. He makes gloves. We’re talking Gold Toe! You may recognize them from their very comfortable and affordable line of crew socks. But – guess what – they have a NEW line of products- the G Collection for more dressy affairs (like going to work in an office, out on a date, lounging around and looking snazzy).

I was skeptical at first. I mean, really, socks are socks, right? Not really. I have several brands of dress socks in my drawer and the G Collection may be pushing some out. They are extremely comfortable – even as they are thinner than the normal Gold Toe crew socks (as most dress socks are). But it seems to have a bit higher quality material than the other socks I have bought at my local Kohl’s. And they are pretty fashionable as well. I would never have thought of myself as expressing any sense of style through my socks – but – here I am, wearing them as we speak.

Sometimes people will notice your tie, or belt buckle, but when they notice your socks and see how well they coordinate with your outfit AND add a little pizzazz!

See? Snazzy.

All in all. Good socks. Great value. Find em at Kohl’s. I also have coupons.

Time to get (UN)REAL

UNREAL is candy. No, scratch that. It’s great tasting candy that has none of the “junk” that you would expect in junk food. No corn syrup. No artificial flavors and colors. And no matter which one you choose it tastes amazing and much like it’s counterpart in the “junked” world. 

We had some at home and the wife said the chocolate peanut butter (UN 77) tasted better than the Reese’s PB Cups. The chocolate candy shell (UN 41) tastes like M&MS – you can’t tell the difference – if anything it tastes better! The chocolate caramel peanuts nougat  was really “satisfying.” I was amazed at how good each one tasted. 

Now I understand that UNREAL is not health food. But I do have a sweet tooth. And might as well feed that sweet tooth with more natural foods that cut down on the sugar and still taste great, right?

And the best part? They cost pretty much the same as their “junked” equivalents. So you can’t complain about that!

Try UNREAL today. You won’t be disappointed.
