When a Cereal Bar Isn’t a Snack Bar (and the South Beach Diet coupon)
I received a very nice email from Bill, who said, “I just wanted to let you know the verdict has come down from South Beach that unfortunately, the Protein Fit/Fiber Bars that are on sale at Meijer, by South Beach’s definition, are not “snack bars” at all and the coupon is not meant to be used on them. Go figure.”
The $3/1 South Beach Diet Printable coupon reads, “Save $3.00 on (1) 4-pack or South Beach Diet Snack Smoothies or any (1) box of Meal Bars, Snack Bars, Sweet Delights or Ready Meals.” Evidently the bars on price drop over at Meijer are cereal bars and not snack bars at all.
I try very hard not to make mistakes and I do apologize for this one. They sure look, act, taste, and feel like snack bars to me, but apparently that’s not at all what South Beach Diet had in mind when it released the coupon. According to Coupons in the News, South Beach Diet “advises that the best way to tell, for those who are still confused, is that the items the coupon is good for, are shelved with the diet products. The cereal bars, which the coupon is not meant for, are sold in the cereal aisle, along with granola bars, fruit bars and other – um – snacks.”
Hope this clears up any confusion!
