REVIEW: Fiber One 90 Calorie Chocolate Caramel & Pretzel Chewy Bars

You know what someone ought to make? Chocolate AND caramel covered pretzels. Chocolate and caramel and pretzels HAVE been incorporated together in different ways, like in Takes 5's and plenty of desserts, but what about just plain ol' chocolate-caramel covered pretzels? You know? You already have this idea to combine all those ingredients there, so why not just put it into actual pretzel form? They might have already made chocolate-caramel covered pretzels SOMEWHERE out there, but I sure haven't seen em'. So... hop to it, you food companies.
Anyway, with that nice little segway in mind, I present to you today the 90 Calorie Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Chewy Bar, brought to you by the brilliant minds of Fiber One.
One 4.10 oz. box with five 0.82 oz. bars costs around $3.34.

One 23g bar contains 90 calories, 20 of them being from fat, 2g of total fat, 1.5g of saturated fat, 0g of trans fat, 0mg of cholesterol, 90mg of sodium, 17g of total carbohydrates, 5g of dietary fiber, 5g of sugar, and less than 1g of protein.

Okay, so what we got here is a small, light bar that smells like a Rolo, believe it or not. The top of this snack is studded with many tiny chocolate chips and is drizzled with a few thin lines of fake-looking caramel. The bottom of the bar is covered in a thin chocolate coating, and there are a few halves of pretzel sticks within the oats and crisped rice mix.

Even though "salty" or "salted" is not in this bar's name, I found the taste to be agreeably salty- just enough to simulate some of the pretzel taste we're looking for. The pretzels added their familiar taste to the mix, as well as a crunchy, dense feel- which broke up the monotony of the rest of the bar's light and chewy structure. The flavors of both chocolate and caramel were present in this bar, and I while I have to say the taste of chocolate was much more apparent than the caramel, they both balanced each other out quite nicely.

To finish this review up, I'd have to say this bar was pretty tasty. All the tastes I expected were present (chocolate, caramel, and pretzel), but while they were all good, they weren't great. I think the tastes could've been a bit stronger in ALL areas- like, the bar wasn't as caramely as I thought it could be, and there oughta have been more pretzel pieces. But anyway, this is a rather tasty 90 calorie bar, and I'd suggest buying a box at least once to try them. I wouldn't really mind buying these again.
I'd give Fiber One's 90 Calorie Chocolate Caramel & Pretzel Chewy Bars a 7/10.
