Pros: Twenty percent of daily fiber. Good Flavor. Reasonable price.
Cons: 14 grams of sugar still on the high side.
Finding breakfast foods with the right combination of healthiness, ease of preparation and flavor can be a challenge. On most mornings, I begin my day with a protein shake. For a change of pace, I enjoy yogurt and a Kellogg’s Cinnamon Whole Wheat Pop Tarts. These pop tarts contain sugar, but are healthier than regular pop tarts.
Kellogg’s Cinnamon Whole Wheat Pop Tarts contains twenty percent of the daily recommended value of fiber (5 grams of the recommended 25). At 200 calories per serving, the 7 grams of fat amounts to 60 calories from fat or thirty percent, not a bad ratio. Most adult diets recommend a daily allowance of 60 to 65 grams of fat, so these 7 grams do not consume a very large chunk of the daily allowance. Other breakfast alternatives might equate to an entire days worth of fat. The 14 grams of sugar still make this a sweet breakfast product. Kellogg’s Cinnamon Whole Wheat Pop Tarts are healthier than donuts but still have room for improvement in terms of overall health value.
The nutritional information is important, but it really doesn’t matter if you don’t enjoy what you’re eating. Kellogg’s Cinnamon Whole Wheat Pop Tarts have an excellent flavor. I have tried the chocolate version and can attest to the fact that they taste like cardboard. The cinnamon flavor taste really good, with no noticeable difference in flavor from regular pop tarts.
Kellogg’s Cinnamon Whole Wheat Pop Tarts are a quick and easy meal. If you are on the run, you can pop them in the toaster while you get ready for work and eat them on the road. They are solid enough that you can safely eat them while driving without worrying about soiling your clothing. If you don’t have time to toast them, they flavor is just as good when you eat them cold.
Kellogg’s Cinnamon Whole Wheat Pop Tarts do not cost any more than regular pop tarts. A brand that markets exclusively to the fiber oriented market runs slightly more, but does not pack in the flavor that Kellogg’s does. So the price, convenience and flavor are all excellent reasons in addition to the health considerations for purchasing this product. I enjoy Kellogg’s Cinnamon Whole Wheat Pop Tarts giving them four stars out of a possible five.
