When evil lurks in the heart of a brownie, none of us are safe

For my first official "Try New Stuff" day, I figured I'd take it easy on myself and eat something involving chocolate.

Or at least something which was supposed to contain chocolate.

I tried "Fiber One 90-Calorie Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies."

A good brownie should be dense, chewy, and fudgy.

These are soft, spongy, and peculiar, like a sofa cushion.

They tasted like neither chocolate nor peanut butter.
In fact, the flavor reminded me of... coffee.

(Probably because the #2 ingredient is chicory extract).

They might be ok if you spread some Nutella on them.
By themselves, they are simply bizarre.

Final verdict: They would make great seat cushions for a rat.

Well it's fibre. What'd you expect? Bonus, though: at least now you're regular.

nonamedufus: You guys spell it "fibre" instead of "fiber"? Huh. So does the Fiber One company make special packaging just for you?
I'd ponder this a lot more, if I wasn't so busy being regular.

That's weird. I checked it cause I thought I made a typo. It's spelled both ways. That's great for fleet fingered people like me.

Makes me hunger for a Twinkie. Don't know why, just does. Spongy yellow delicious bastards.

Janna said...

nonamedufus: I assumed it was a Canadian thing. :)

MonkeyMan: Amen to that.

Well then, I'll cross that one off the grocery list.

Marilyn: Definitely.
