Chocolate Goodness

Finding decent tasting, lower calorie ways to satisfy a sweet tooth is particulary challenging.

However, I'm have come across two products that have sufficiently satisfied mine.

First up...Chocolate Cheerios!

How are they, you ask? Delicious. Chocolatey. Make your plain skim milk into CHOCOLATE MILK. Only 100 calories per serving. Plus, they taste heavenly with strawberries. Any given morning at 8:15 this week, you could see me in my cubicle enjoying this tasty treat for breakfast.

Next up...another great product from Skinny Cow...Ice Cream Cups!

WOW! Honestly, these are awesome. They come in a few different flavors:

  • Chocolate Fudge Brownie

  • Strawberry Cheesecake

  • Cookies and Cream

  • Dulce de Leche

  • Caramel Cone
I can only personally review the chocolate fudge brownie, strawberry cheesecake, and cookies and cream. All three...heaven in my mouth. I would have to say, at this juncture, strawberry cheesecake is my favorite. Nile's is chocolate fudge brownie. They sell for $1.49 (at Giant) and are only 150 calories each.

Now, $1.49 is a little steep for about 1/2 cup of ice cream. I could buy it in a tub and only give myself 1/2 a cup. However, that's not going to happen. Eating 1/2 cup of ice cream, when I have access to an entire tub is virtually impossible. Perhaps you have the willpower, but I do not. You wouldn't put a pound (or gram or kilo or whatever you call it) of heroin in front of an addict and ask them to only take one hit, right? Ice cream=heroin for me. Case closed.

In conclusion, buy this stuff. You'll like it.
