Wanna know the most fantastic ways to kick a chocolate craving? Check out
HG's three chocolate must-haves, a slew of cocoa-rific treats with a
POINTS® value of 1*, and our killer chocolate recipe round-up...
HG Chocolate Essentials
Here at the HG HQ, we're prepared for chocolate emergencies at all times.
These staples are always in our freezer, fridge, and pantry (respectively)...
Triple Chocolate Chunk VitaTops
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!)
Jell-O Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding Snacks
PER SERVING (1 container): 60 calories, 1.5g fat, 180mg sodium, 13g carbs,
<1g fiber, 0g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 1*
There's nothing quite like a self-contained single serving of delicious
chocolate pudding. With even fewer calories than their fat-free counterparts
(60 vs. 100), these cups of creamy goodness are the ultimate in diet-friendly
desserts. Perfect for anyone who wants portable pudding and for those who
are simply too impatient to wait hours for pudding from a box to chill. And if
you ever get bored with plain Chocolate, there's also Chocolate Vanilla Swirl,
Double Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, and Dark Chocolate Raspberry.
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! Pssst... It's also fantastic in recipes (see our list
below for proof!).
