I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

My Thoughts: I received the Cinnamon Brown Sugar flavored biscuits and I was delighted by how yummy they are! I was a little skeptical at first because I thought they were like an energy bar, which I typically don't like. I found these quite delicious, but I didn't notice any significant difference in energy compared to what I normally eat for breakfast (cereal).
I like to have something to grab for breakfast on the go. Normally, I have granola bars but I have to eat two because they don't fill me. I found the BelVita biscuits more filling. So, although they contain more calories and fat grams than your typical granola bar, it about evens out for me if I have to eat two granola bars.
I really liked these and plan on buying them in the future for my breakfast-to-go food. I look forward to trying the other flavors.
Pros: Yummy Flavor, Surprisingly filling, no high fructose corn syrup, whole grain
Cons: More calories than other breakfast on-the-go choices
Best For: Breakfast-to-go; snack (can be paired with fruit!)
My Grade: A
