Edit by Goob: The stupid smart sample links keep looping back here to this site (one of their anti-spam measures gone haywire!), so you'll have to right click on the link and manually copy it to your browser. Sorry folks!
Hi everyone out there! I've got a good freebie review for you today. It's Saturday (edit by Goob: oops!) and not much freebie stuff arrives, but today one did and I'm gonna review it for you. The freebie we are going to talk about is Fiber One's “Caramel Delight” Cereal. Mine arrived on March 8th, 2008 and I signed up for it back on January 24th…So almost two months waiting for it…I've waited longer for stuff.
It arrived in a heavy little cardboard box that has the company's product on every inch of the box. On the side of it is the quote “Fiber meets Flavor!” Let's hope so I thought. Upon opening the box there was a second little box, it reminds me of those little kid variety packs you buy at the store. Inside that box, finally I got to the little foil package of the cereal. I must say I like the double box, it makes less squished cereal which I have had happen with food samples before. Cereal out of the foil and into the bowl. There looked to be about a cup of it there but upon further reading the cereal box it states “this sample contains less then one cup” which one cup is the serving size…whatever. On to the cereal.
It smells really good, like cinnamon and honey, but the ingredients contain none of that. Whole grain, wheat, sugar, corn bran chicory root extract and rice bran are just a few of the ingredients. I'm seriously telling you though, I smell cinnamon and honey. This cereal reminds me of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, shape and look wise. Tasting it before the milk it tastes like French toast, which is not a bad thing. Okay, milk added and the little squares float around like they are in their own little swimming pool. Tasting it with milk, tastes like even better French toast. Maybe it's just my taste buds or something, lol. The cereal doesn't seem to become soggy either, which is a great thing…who wants soggy cereal right?
Well, General Mills did good with this cereal. Back late last year or earlier this year, Fiber One gave away free samples of the Original Fiber One cereal, which also didn't suck, so I think this is something everyone might like. There are also other flavors besides Caramel and Original. Two of them are, Raisin Bran Clusters and Honey Clusters, both of which I hope we get to sample. Along with the free sample was a 1.00$ off coupon, which isn't bad at all. I priced this cereal at Wal-Mart and Shop and Save and it was anywhere from 1.99$ to 2.99$. A dollar off, well worth it in my opinion.
This is a cereal that I would most definitely buy after trying the sample. This is a great snacking cereal also, lol…If you'd like to try this, then today's your lucky day! The free Caramel Delight cereal is back up, so sign up before it dies again! Let me know if the link doesn't work for you either, it was acting a little wonky for me earlier this morning.
