It's fiber-licious. Seriously. I'm not even kidding. {Fiber One yogurt review and giveaway}

I know, I know, you hear the word "fiber" and you think bland, dull, lots of farting, cardboard-y, and YUCK all at the same time, right?

It's no secret that I'm in love with fiber, and I'm especially in love with Fiber One goodies. It started with the Fiber One Oats and Chocolate bars (which I've talked about here and here), and then it developed into a love for some of the Fiber One cereals, and now I have a brand new Fiber One love to rave about, and the even better news? For a very special three of you, if you're not already fans of Fiber One, you will be after you receive THIS:

It's a Fiber One Healthy & Fit Weight Management gift pack that includes a coupon for a $1.00 off a pack of the new Fiber One yogurt, two sporkives (a spork with a knive on the side, duh...), an insulated lunch box (with a separate bottom compartment for an ice pack or sandwich), a large cup with lid and measurements on the side (I'm thinking...smoothie on the go?) and a 3-section plastic container with lid.

I'm a big fan of yogurt, but since going back on Weight Watchers, I've been disappointed to discover that even though the yogurt I've been loving lately is "light" it still costs me 2 Weight Watchers points (point values are assigned to different foods based on calories, fat content and fiber content, and you're alloted a certain amount of points per day). That's not TOO bad, but yogurt doesn't exactly fill me up, and I could have a couple cups of fruit for 2 points and feel more full. (Or I could have a small piece of chocolate. Mmm, chocolate.)

So...when I found out that the new Fiber One yogurt has a points value of ZERO - yes, I said zero - and packs 5 grams of fiber (that's 20% of your Recommended Daily Value, peeps!) and just 50 calories you know I did a little happy dance.

This stuff is De.LISH! Mmmm, mmm, mmmm.

I've tried the Key Lime Pie and Peach flavors, and both were delicious. I love that I can have one of these and not use up any of my daily points, plus I'm getting some good ol' fiber in my diet for the day. In my quest to find snacks that are both healthy and delectable, this one definitely makes the list.

You may have heard of Hungry Girl or her book 200 Under 200, which features 200 healthy recipes that have 200 calories or less. She's given the new Fiber One yogurt her seal approval. Click on the video below if you're interested in seeing what she thinks of it.

My guilty pleasure is Dove Dark Chocolate squares/hearts/eggs (whatever the last big holiday was) enjoyed in the tub after the kids are asleep.
