Fiber One Blueberry Toaster Pastry

    If the video embedded above is not viewable, you can see it at these other fine video sharing sites: Vimeo, Viddler and Metacafe.

Fiber One Blueberry Toaster Pastry is a General Mills product that is high in fiber and whole grain and peculiar on flavor.

Fiber One Blueberry Toaster Pastry tastes entirely like the Newton portion of a Fig Newton, and very little like blueberry at all. Perhaps that’s because it is being flavored with grape juice and colored by food dye instead of having much natural blueberry in it to start.

As you may recall from the video, this product has gelatin in it which, unless explicitly listed as vegetable gelatin, should be assumed to be an animal based gelatin and therefore this is not a vegetarian product.

It also has a large amount of wheat in it so isn’t gluten free either.

I was having trouble understanding what was providing the fiber in Fiber One Blueberry Toaster Pastry during filming. Enzyme modified soy protein is NOT the fiber ingredient, that’s just a cheaper way of adding soy to things, and therefore adding protein. The fiber ingredient is polydextrose, which always throws me off because it has the word dextrose in it, which to me means SUGAR. But here it means fiber. (Insert eyeroll here.)

Allergens listed: wheat, milk, and soy

Deductions for taste, method of flavoring, too much pastry, some pretty un-awesome ingredients, and lack of vitamins and minerals.

This thing’s lucky it got any bowls, GEEEEZ.
