Fiber One Original Bran Cereal vs. All-Bran Original Natural Wheat Bran High Fiber Cereal
A half-cup serving of Fiber One has 60 calories, 1g fat, 105mg sodium, 25g carbs, 14g fiber, 0g sugars, and 2g protein.
Half a cup of All-Bran has 80 calories, 1g fat, 80mg sodium, 23g carbs, 10g fiber, 6g sugars, and 4g protein.
Calorie and sugar counters will appreciate Fiber One’s numbers — plus, F1 has 4 extra grams of fiber. Protein seekers and those totally opposed to artificial sweeteners (Fiber One is lightly sweetened with aspartame) may prefer All-Bran’s stats.
All-Bran has a hay-like texture — we find it dry and unappealing.
While Fiber One is slightly sweet and perfectly crunchy, All-Bran tastes a lot like cardboard. Do not confuse these two!
Fiber One tastes better, has fewer calories, and contains more fiber. All-Bran just can’t hold a candle to the #1 bran cereal in the biz. Sorry!
Guess which cereal I bought on Sunday, thinking I was buying the other?Â Damn it.Â Sadly, this is NOT the first time I have made this mistake.Â And now that I opened it up and ate my first bowl of straw, I’m far too cheap to throw it away and go get some Fiber One. Â So I’ll just have to eat it and suffer.
