SNACK OF THE WEEK:

Gnu Flavor & Fiber bar Fiber bars can be, well, less than appealing. But these are so good that you’ll think you’re eating a candy bar. One bar is only 140 calories, but with 12 grams of fiber you’ll be filled enough to say no to that bucket of popcorn. Try one of 9 delicious flavors.
