Fibre One Chocolate Fudge Brownies Review
These are not exactly new but came out last year and have been promoted heavily again on TV in the last few months, and since this was on discount in Co-op because of the damaged box, I thought why not see what all the fuss is about. Promoted as a tasty treat coming in at only 90 calories per brownie, these 5 in a box brownies are 24g each and measure up 5cm X 6cm and barely 1cm thick.
I’m a little surprised at the small size of the brownie especially the thickness and they sure don’t look as they do on the box or on TV but that’s nothing new. They are quite thin, I’m used to thicker brownies but at 90 calories I can’t expect a whopping big slice. They are quite chewy but very rich chocolate cakey in flavour straight away. It tastes like those chocolate cup cake/muffins that you can but in supermarkets. They are nice but they feel like they’re gone before you know it but you are left with a nice chocolate aftertaste. Yes, they are nice, they don’t have that fresh taste as you would expect but they good solid chocolate cupcake/muffin flavours and overshadowed by the calorie count is the 5g of fibre in each bar which is also a plus. I’m not sure how much fibre there is in a regular chocolate muffin but as this product is called Fibre One I’m hoping that this snack has extra fibre….otherwise I will feel a bit short changed.
Is it worth the quite hefty price tag for these 5 small bars? If you look at it at around 50p per brownie that’s not bad especially if you’re watching your weight but there is temptation to have more than one which leads to another….and then you might as well have had half a family size Galaxy. But they are nice, and nearly everyone in the office liked it but they all are disappointed by the small size after seeing the adverts, but other than that I would buy it again….especially if I can find another discounted damaged box that is!
