Fiber Gourmet Review & Giveaway

April said... 56
I would LOVE to try the Light Spaghetti noodles. If I could sneak this in where the boys didn't see the box and fix them spaghetti - I bet they'd never know they were eating healthier! If they know, they'll believe it will taste bad and it will. GFC follower (april) april dot vrugtman at gmail dot com

FiberGourmet


Our unique FiberGourmet technology allows us to manufacture pasta, crackers and cakes which taste the same as the conventional versions but have 10 times more fiber. We even have more fiber than whole wheat! (See comparison chart to the right for details). And because we use insoluble fiber, which has no calories, we are able to literally cut the calories in half.










Review

They sent me some samples to try.  I received some of the lite nacho snacks, light wheat snacks, cheese snacks, a box of the light mac n cheese and a lite microwave brownie mix.  

I tried the Light Wheat Snacks first.  These are compared to wheatables on the package.  They have have the calories and nothing artificial.  They also have 12g of fiber, which is amazing.  The best part is that they taste great!  I ate these plain and with soup.  I liked them both ways.

Delicious wheat crackers with half the calories of standard crackers (150 vs. 75 for 32g). Our competitor's 100-calorie packs have only 21 grams, leaving you hungry later. By contrast, for just 75 calories we give you a generous and filling 32 grams (1.15 oz)!
  • Case of six boxes, each with six single-serve pouches (total 36 pouches, 41.4 oz)
  • 75 calories, compared to 150 in standard crackers
  • 12g fiber in each package (48% of Daily Value)
  • High-barrier packaging keeps crackers fresh and delicious for at least 6 months from order date

Next I tried the lite nacho snacks.  They also have 12g of fiber and taste great.  I would compare them to cheez its, but these are so much better for me and have 1/2 the calories.  I had these as an afternoon snack one day at work.  They are yummy.

Try the only Nacho crackers that taste just like the Cheez-It's (or Cheese Nips) you love, but with literally half the calories!

Update, 2/24: Due to a packaging mishap, we have had to bulk-pack our cheese crackers. Instead of putting them in the 6-pack boxes, and then having 6 of those boxes per case, we are now packing 36 bags into each box. It's the same number of crackers, just bulk packed now instead of in boxes. To make up for the absence of the boxes, we took another $1 off our already low price, and are now selling the case for only $23.
What's more, the plant is packing these by hand, and while their counting isn't perfect I understand they usually err on the side of too many packages per box, not too few ...


The lite frosted brownies are so good.  All you do is add water and then pop it in the microwave for a sweet treat.  They are only 90 calories which is amazing.  I could eat this every day and not feel too bad about it.

Want a sweet reward in the middle of the day, without the guilt? Check out our handy, portable microwave cake mixes. Simply add a tablespoon or so of water, microwave for 30 seconds, and you're in healthy heaven. See how we compare to the leading microwave cake mix brand:

Product Description

Fiber your kids will eat! Each easy-to-prepare dinner box comes with a tasty cheddar cheese packet, just like those Kraft blue boxes but without the artificial colors and flavors! And since it's FiberGourmet you know it's the world's healthiest mac & cheese: high in fiber (18g per serving!), and low in calories. 

We really enjoyed the mac n cheese.  It tasted great and was low in calories and high in fiber.  I am so excited about the fiber gourmet.  I love that it tastes great and is good for me too!
