Fiber One Toaster Pastries

I admit it, I like Pop-Tarts. They're tasty, but oh-so-not-healthy for you, so I rarely eat them. Pop-Tart has a new line of "whole grain", but they're still pretty high in calories and fat, so I skip 'em. But when I saw the new Fiber One Toaster Pastries, I thought I'd give 'em a try. I went with the brown sugar cinnamon flavor - with frosting! Woo!

Well, maybe woo. Though the pastry is tasty, it's still un-fulfilling to eat just one (and of course they're wrapped in twos). It's not as tasty as a Pop-Tart, but it's not a bad replacement. Nutritionally speaking though, it's not a miracle food - only 5 grams of fiber doesn't seem like the typical Fiber One way there. One of these did not fill me up at all. Two filled me up a bit, but I thought about how much I could've eaten for 380 calories and 10 grams of fiber, and was really disappointed.
