I've learned to just grab Special K Fruit 'n Yogurt.
It gets the job done every single time.
So when FitFluential presented the opportunity to review the new Special K Chewy Snack Bars, I bit because I wanted to know if he'd like them. I mean, they look delicious:

Each bar offers up 100 calories. I'll be honest: Some 100-calorie snacks taste like cardboard, but these bars go down quite nicely. I'll be honest again: I'm not a fan of the fact that they contain corn syrup and one or two other questionable ingredients, but in the grand scheme of things, this bar is probably better for me than some of the others out there that taste just as good.
Sure, you can probably make a healthy snack bar at home, be don't always have the time for that, but we're always in need of a quick fix. And thanks to the yummy chocolate-based versions, Special K helps you avoid the candy aisle, too.
Proud owner of a raging sweet tooth. Anyone else?
I'm also hungry all the time, especially after I teach, so I like to have bars like this in my gym bag in case I don't have the time to pack something homemade. Seriously, I have a whole pocket in my gym bag dedicated to snacks. It's my pantry pocket. You think I'm joking. Sadly, I'm not. #priorities
Crumble them up and you have a delicious topper for your (homemade?) yogurt!
Speaking of tasty, the husband put his stamp of approval on the Berry Medley flavor. He says it tastes like his cereal, and that he'd "have one, and then the next day have another one." #snackwin
Oh, and guess what? Special K makes brownies, too. More on that to come.
For more information, you can follow Special K on Facebook and Twitter. Special K Snack Bars are available at retailers nationwide at a suggested price of $2.69.
