New & Noteworthy

The latest chocolate treats to hit the market...

Fiber One Toaster Pastry, Chocolate Fudge

PER SERVING (1 pastry): 190 calories, 4.5g fat, 125mg sodium, 36g carbs, 5g fiber, 15g sugars, 4g protein -- POINTS® value 3*

Kiss those Pop-Tarts goodbye! These toasty-good b-fast treats pack in 5g of fiber each, and they are SOOOO good. Yee-haa!

100 Calorie Packs Oreo Snack Cakes

PER SERVING (1 package): 100 calories, 4g fat, 135mg sodium, 15g carbs, <1g fiber, 9g sugars, 1g protein -- POINTS® value 2*

These aren't LARGE... but you get to eat THREE. And each one is frosted with goo that tastes like the love child of white chocolate and Oreo creme. Tasty!

Chex Mix Bars, Turtle and Chocolate Chunk

Get your liquid chocolate fix here...

Unsweetened Chocolate Almond Breeze

PER SERVING (8 fl. oz.): 45 calories, 3.5g fat, 180mg sodium, 3g carbs, 1g fiber, 0g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 1*

We've said it before and we'll say it again -- this is the way to do chocolate milk! Throw a Splenda packet in, and you're good to go!

Swiss Miss Sensible Sweets Diet Hot Cocoa Mix

PER SERVING (1 packet): 25 calories, 0g fat, 160mg sodium, 4g carbs, 1g fiber, 2g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 0*

Oooh, nothing says comfort like a cup of cocoa. On a scale of 1 to 10, this guilt-free mix ramps the comfort level up to an 11! And for just 25 calories?!?!?! AAAAAAH!

Sipahh Milk Flavoring Straws, Chocolate

PER SERVING (1 straw): 10 calories, 0g fat, 0mg sodium, 3g carbs, 0g fiber, 2g sugars, 0g protein -- POINTS® value 0*

These are meant for kids, but who cares?! We LOVE 'em! Make your Unsweetened Chocolate Almond Breeze extra chocolatey, cocoa-up your Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze (or light vanilla soymilk), or turn your ordinary iced coffee into an iced mocha. Weeeeeee!

 

And the World's Best Chocolate Craving Buster Is...

Drum roll, please...

The Triple Chocolate Chunk VitaTop!

PER SERVING (1 VitaTop): 100 calories, 1.5g fat, 150mg sodium, 23g carbs, 5g fiber, 10g sugars, 3g protein -- POINTS® value 1*

Honestly, we'd call it the "heavyweight champion", but it's too low in calories and fat to earn that title! This is, HANDS DOWN, our most favorite way to SLAY a chocolate craving. (And we are NOT just saying that 'cuz we co-developed these. Pinky swear!)

 

100-Cal Corral

Calorie-controlled chocolate rocks our socks...

100 Calorie Packs Mister Salty Milk Chocolate Covered Pretzels

PER SERVING (1 package): 100 calories, 3.5g fat, 160mg sodium, 16g carbs, 0g fiber, 7g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 2*

For those of you (and us!) who LOVE the salt-sugar thing, Mister Salty himself put together the sweetest combo. Chocolate + pretzels = so good we're glad it's portion-controlled.

Hershey's Crisp, Reese's Peanut Butter, and York Peppermint 100-Calorie Wafer Bars

PER SERVING (1 package): 100 calories, 6g fat, 10 - 50mg sodium, 11g carbs, <1g fiber, 8 - 9g sugars, <1 - 2g protein -- POINTS® value 3*

These people know what they're doing! They've transformed their popular candies into little 100-calorie bundles of joy! Just don't go eating, like, five of them. Trust us, you'll be tempted.

Twix 100 Calorie Bars

PER SERVING (1 cookie): 100 calories, 5g fat, 40mg sodium, 13g carbs, 0g fiber, 10g sugars, 1g protein -- POINTS® value 2*

The days of gazing longingly at the checkout candy rack are OVER! Tackle your craving for cookie, caramel, and chocolate with one stick. Mmmmmm!

 

Hard to Get (but Worth the Chase!)

We get what all the rioting's about...

Sweetriot, various flavors

PER SERVING (1 tin): 140 calories, 11 - 12g fat, 0mg sodium, 12 - 14g carbs, 3 - 4g fiber, 6 - 10g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 3*

Great news! Those are the stats for the ENTIRE TIN! These are little cacao nibs dunked in some SERIOUS chocolate. But they're not for your average milk-chocolate crowd. They come in three varieties, ranging from the mild Flavor 50 (dunked in 50% dark chocolate) to the intense Flavor 70 (dunked in 70% dark chocolate with espresso). These have only 1 - 2 calories per piece (or as they say on the tin, "peace"), and you don't need to eat too many at once -- that tin'll likely last you awhile. Plus, they pack a WHOLLOP in the antioxidant department! Yay!
