I am like most women – I love chocolate. Perhaps too much; however, I do have standards and I won’t eat poor quality chocolates. If I’m going to ingest the calories, I’m going to love it or do without.
That doesn’t mean I’ll turn my nose up at a lower-fat chocolate, it’s just that I haven’t found one I enjoy…well that is until now. I received a sampling of new chocolates that are lower in fat and still delicious! Hershey’s Simple Pleasures chocolates have 30% less fat than the average leading milk chocolates – that’s a significant drop in my book! In fact, a serving size is 6 pieces which add up to just 180 calories. For those of you on Weight Watchers, that’s 5 points!
Hershey’s Simple Pleasures are available in three varieties: Milk Chocolate with Vanilla Crème (it reminds me of cake frosting), Dark Chocolate with Chocolate Crème, and Milk Chocolate with Chocolate Crème. I’m in love with the chocolate crème filling! Its smooth taste combined with the chocolate outer layer is delicious and thankfully they’re not too sweet. They’re a wonderful departure from my usual sweet treats.
