FiberOne and $50.00 Gift Card Review & Giveaway!


I like yogurt. It's delicious, quick, and filling! I primarily eat it as a snack but also use it in smoothies and even use plain yogurt as a substitute for sour cream. Yes, it can be done, and they taste strikingly similar on Mexican food. I'm always excited when I get to try a new yogurt product, and especially when I then get to share it with you. Just today, I tried my first cup of Yoplait's new Fiber One yogurt in their "peach" flavor. Honestly, it was even creamier than a regular yogurt and I appreciate the added fiber and vitamins it contains. My only hesitation on this product is that it contains Aspartame which has been linked to serious neurological problems. I'd love to see them use real sugar in the product instead since my opinion is that a few extra calories is better than the myelon sheath of my neurons dissapearing. ;-) I'd love to try the Vanilla and Key Lime Pie flavors as well since I think they'd be great with the extra creamy taste, and also to see Yoplait add real fruit chunks! Yum.

MyBlogSpark's description gives you the 4-1-1
The new Fiber One yogurt is the only leading nonfat yogurt with 50 calories and 5 grams of fiber (20 percent of the Recommended Daily Value). It is also a good source of calcium and vitamins A and D, making this a guilt-free and all-around great choice for dieters and those watching their weights. Each cup includes the creamy, delicious taste you expect from Yoplait, and you don’t have to feel guilty about enjoying it. Fiber One is available in a variety of flavors including, Strawberry, Peach, Vanilla and Key Lime Pie

Win It!
MyBlogSpark and Yoplait have teamed up to provide one of my readers with her own Fiber One gift bag that includes a Fiber One yogurt VIP coupon (good for a free 4-pack of Fiber One yogurt), and a $50 Safeway (also good at Dominick’s, Tom Thumb, Randalls, Vons, Genuardi’s) gift card that you can use to stock up on Fiber One yogurt and enjoy the everyday values that Safeway has to offer.
