We ALL need a sweet fix from time to time (like from lunch to dinner!). Here are some of our latest 'n greatest dessert finds...
Xan Confections Saintly Sins Chocolates PER SERVING (1 piece): 29 calories, 1g fat, 0mg sodium, 5g carbs, 0g fiber, 5g sugars, 0g protein -- PointsPlus® value 1*
At first glance, these decked-out vegan chocolates may appear too pretty to eat: The Raspberry Sin is intricately printed, the Strawberry Sins are cute enough to wear as earrings, and the Pineapple Sin looks like a beautiful flower! Once you get over that, you'll realize that they're also AMAZINGLY great tasting. And the best news of all? These bonbons have a mere 29 calories a pop. Where's the sin in that?
Entenmann's Ultimate Cinnamon Crumb Cake Coffee
Read the name carefully; it's cake-flavored coffee, not cinnamon crumb coffee cake! (Hence the absence of nutritional stats. Coffee itself has a negligible amount of calories.) Now, some people like to conclude a nice meal with a piece of dessert; some prefer a cup of coffee. We ask, "Why not have both at once?" Coffee that tastes like CAKE? How cool is that? Mix this stuff up with some Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze (or light vanilla soy) and no-calorie sweetener, and you'll have a delicious sippable treat with a hint of cakey awesomeness. SWEET.
3 Musketeers Truffle Crisp Bars PER SERVING (2 bars): 170 calories, 9g fat, 30mg sodium, 20g carbs, 0g fiber, 18g sugars, 2g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*
Have you ever had a dream in which you opened your 3 Musketeers Bar to find two slender sticks (à la Twix)... and when you bit into one, the bar was filled with delicate, crunchy meringue instead of the standard chewy stuff? We've got a feeling that someone in the candy world had this very dream! Thus, Truffle Crisp Bars were born. They aren't super low in stats, but they are super high in satisfaction. What a GREAT candy bar find! Mmmmmm...
Portion-controlled frozen goodness! We figured these cups o' ice cream would be good, but WOW! Nothing could have prepared us for how fantastically rich and amazing they are. The flavor line-up is as follows (brace yourself): Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Dulce de Leche, Strawberry Cheesecake, Caramel Cone, and Cookies 'N Cream!!! This ice cream is incredible.

These aren't new to us, but they may be new to YOU...
Arctic Zero Chocolate Peanut Butter All Natural Frozen Dessert PER SERVING (1/2 cup): 32 calories, 0g fat, 9mg sodium, 11g carbs, 0g fiber, 9g sugars, 4g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*
This isn't brand new, but until the entire world knows about it, we'll keep blabbin'! Not only is this item INTENSELY low in calories and free of fat, but it's also REALLY good! You know those days when you think to yourself, "Would it be so bad if I ate an ENTIRE pint of ice cream!?" If it's Arctic Zero, you're in the clear. A whole pint of this has only 128 calories! And while we don't really recommend powering through an entire carton in one sitting, you really can't do TOO much damage with it. AWESOME FROZEN TREAT FIND!!!
Mousse Temptations by Jell-O PER SERVING (1 pudding snack): 60 calories, 2.5 - 3g fat, 100 - 135mg sodium, 9 - 10g carbs, 0 - 1g fiber, 0g sugars, 1 - 2g protein -- PointsPlus® value 2*
To some of you, we must sound like a broken record, constantly yapping about this fridge find. But there are STILL people out there who write in asking, "OMG, have you heard of Mousse Temptations?" Oh, we've heard of them alright. We love them. BIGTIME. The rich, chocolatey flavors and that creamy caramel one too. If these fluffy pudding cups are new to you, what are you waiting for? Go get some! (OK, you can finish reading this email first.)
Blue Bunny Raspberry Vanilla Aspen Frozen Yogurt Granola Bars PER SERVING (1 bar): 150 calories, 8g fat, 50mg sodium, 18g carbs, 3g fiber, 13g sugars, 2g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*
Our friends at Blue Bunny are CRAZY creative, and these bars are SO fun and unique that they kind of broke our brains a little (ouch!). Take a plank of raspberry fro yo, top it with a layer of razzy goodness, dunk it all in a sweet vanilla coating, and then finish it off with granola crumbles. Yup, it's SUPER delicious. What will those geniuses over at BB think of next? (P.S. Raspberry haters, check out the strawberry version!)
