THANK GOODNESS!!! Whew, I was soooo excited to learn- while watching tv with my husband last night- that Fiber One has come out with a 90 calorie brownie!! Wow, now all of our problems are solved! Dieters don't have to miss out (as the commercial says), now they can eat brownies too!  Because THAT was the problem the whole time-- can't eat brownies while you are dieting...Sheesh, where would we have been if for ONE MORE DAY we had to go without eating brownies??? Thank you Fiber One and General Mills for saving us! Wonder if there is anything they can do about the national debt?

Just for kicks and giggles I decided to check out the ingredients of these magical dieter's brownies. Here's what I found on their website:
Ingredients: Wheat flour bleached, Chicory root extract, sugar, chocolate flavored chips (sugar, palm kernel oil, cocoa processed with alkali,  soy lecithin, milk, salt, natural flavor) vegetable oil (canola, palm, palm kernel), fructose, cocoa processed with alkali, sugarcane fiber, vegetable glycerine, water, egg whites, cocoa, leavening (baking soda, sodium aluminum phosphate), natural flavor, corn starch, salt, soy lecithin, milk, xantham gum, locust bean gum.

Huh, ok, bleached flour as the first ingredient, sugar in the top 3 and then all kinds of oils...hmmmm, call me crazy but I don't find any of this helpful to anyone--especially dieters. Ok, I take that back...it would be very helpful if you would like to gain weight (read : fat), become less healthy or just throw some money away. If that is what you are looking for then go for it.  Otherwise as Public Enemy says "don't believe the hype".
