Not the best of the Special K line

These bars are OK. They are better than many diet bars, but not as good as most in the Special line. The picture on the box is deceiving. There is no white layer on the bottom of the bar. It is just made up of what is on pictured as the top layer- with a thin milky honey-like coating on the bottom and drizzled over the top. I do not find them as satisfying as the chocolate peanut butter bars.

Quite tasty with a decent nutritional profile

I tend to have quick breakfasts on the run before work in the mornings, so I often rely on quick, easy foods like bars. However, I avoid traditional breakfast bars, which tend to be high in sugar and have little-to-no protein. Rather, I want something that is going to start my day with a better nutritional value AND contain a decent amount of protein to keep me feeling full longer. The other problem is that it’s breakfast–I don’t want chocolate! Maybe true chocoholics eat chocolate at any time of the day, but I prefer something a bit more appropriate to the morning hours.

So, after Slim-Fast changed their bars on me (loved their old Oatmeal Raisin Optima bars, but really don’t like the new version), I decided to try these meal replacement bars by Special K in Honey Almond. First of all, when I checked out the box, these bars met my nutritional requirements. They have 10 grams of protein, which is almost as much as some bars specifically billed as protein/energy bars. They are a good source of fiber as well, with 5 grams. Also, the sugar is relatively low at 12 grams (just over 2 teaspoons). Finally, although the fat content is a bit higher than I would have liked (6 grams), these bars contain only 2.5 grams saturated fat (no trans fat), so most of the fat is probably healthy fats from the almonds.

Of course, the final test of these bars is the taste: they are yummy! They are chewy, with a pleasant almond-y flavor that is not too sweet (an unfortunately problem that I’ve found with so many bars I have tried). These have become one of my new breakfast staples, and I definitely recommend them.

Good to go!

This is a great grab and go product for meal replacement. Very tasty! I carry one in my purse for those times when I can’t stop for a meal. I also eat them for breakfast quite a bit.

I’ve tried most of the meal replacement bars out there and Special K’s versions are, hands down, the best. This one is one of their best efforts to date. Goes great with a cup of coffee! 🙂

180-calorie, good taste and protein supply

These bars are slightly less calories than slim-fasts bars and typically provide a bit more protein. I use them in combination with some fruit or dairy for breakfast or as a larger snack mid-morning or mid-afternoon. The yogurt covering adds to the good taste and makes the bar filling and satisfying. Subscribe and save to make the price very reasonable and shipping convenient.

Love, Love these meal replacement bars

I have lost a total of 63 pounds since June of 2010. I have used the meal replacement bars for two meals a day and then a regular meal at night. I have tried all of the favors and the only one that I do not particulary care for is the strawberry. Since I have a sweet tooth and I love chocolate, the others are all very tasty. I have not gotten tired of the meal replacement bars at all.

I would recommend these bars to anyone trying to follow a diet.

I am a guy who had surgery, requiring me to have at least 80 grams of protein a day, which is a ton! These bars are a god send! They taste great, fill you up, and not too terrible with the other nutrition marks. The Almond and Choc. Chip are my two absolute favorates!

We love these bars

My husband and I both love these. They’re great as a meal replacement or a snack, and they taste wonderful! Hubby has been using these along with protein shakes and has lost over 100lbs! We also like the Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor a lot.

Can’t live without them!

Great for on the go! I usually keep 1 or 2 in my purse. My 12 year old son eats them on his way to school or before basketball practice. They are very tasty and it’s hard to find a bar with this much protein. I buy 6 boxes at a time.

I love these bars for breakfast. So happy that Special K makes something not covered in chocolate. I don’t want a lot of sugar in my breakfast, and I am not a chocoholic. These are perfect. They don’t taste “protein-y” like many of the bars on the market.

These are really good!

I grab one of these every morning with my coffee. The peanut butter ones are good too but these are my favorite. I have even used them as a lunch substitute when I haven’t had time to fix myself something. They taste great! 🙂

It’s good, the bars are good

It’s good, it’s pretty good, the wife loves them, my kids love them. But chocolate Peanut butter is cheaper and tastes better.

Wife eats them daily

These are one of the best special k bars we have tasted. These are loaded with about 12-15g of protein which is great for everyones diet. They are large enough to be a meal replacement while on a reduced calorie diet.
