      The Special K diet suggests that you replace two meals with either a meal bar or a bowl of cereal. If someone was to follow this diet as suggested, I have no doubt that they would lose weight. These meal bars are delicious. However, the problem lies in that it tastes like a candy bar. Most people can attest that candy bars aren’t food, so they often resort to eating them as a snack rather than as a replacement meal.

      That is the case with the Special K Strawberry meal bar.

      It is basically soy protein covered with yogurt flavorings that makes me feel like I’m eating yogurt-covered raisins. It is hard to believe that it has 5 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein. When I took a bite, I began to wonder where they had packed all that nutrition. It was extremely sweet and reminded me of a granola parfait. However, it really kept me full ...


      • throughout the day although it certainly didn’t satisfy my desire for a meal.

        The problem with this meal plan is that you have to replace a meal with their bars or cereals. I think it would be extremely hard to follow long-term, even though these bars are delicious. I would recommend eating them as a snack rather than the usual candy bar or chips; they are lower in calories compared to those snacks.

        The downside is that it is expensive.

        My usual box of granola bars costs under four dollars. These bars cost nearly 6 dollars. So basically, I’m spending a couple of dollars more, not to mention that I cannot possibly believe that anyone can follow this plan long-term. It is way too high in calories to eat as a snack, especially if you’re trying to lose weight. I would only recommend this product if you’re seriously thinking about losing weight. Otherwise, I don’t recommend having it in your home.
