Special K Meal Bar

Drat it, I'm out of Larabars. My director was going to the snack machine and I asked her to see if there were any bars to be had. She ended up going clear over to the gift shop where she found a Kelloggs Special K protein meal bar. Right on the packaging it says feel fuller longer. Don't believe it. The first clue to the ingredients was another announcement on the wrapper - naturally & artificially flavored. The ingredient list is as long as your arm. Contains milk, soy, wheat, egg, pecan, almond and peanuts. Plus a whole bunch of stuff I can't spell or pronounce.

I won't buy this one again (it was $1.59). It was sickeningly sweet. The strawberry flavor was definitely artificially flavored. If you haven't tried these yet save your money buy Larabars instead and NO I'm not receiving anything from Larabars in exchange for singing their praises.
I'm off to the treadmil. Gotta get my time in.
I want to give a shout-out to Healthy Tipping Point and congratulations on her first blogoversary.
May you have many more.
More later...
