Losing weight can be very difficult, especially with so many food-related temptations available to us. My husband is a junk-a-holic and loves his sweets. He can go through an entire box of packaged snack foods in less than a day. And of course, the guy never gains an ounce. Me on the other hand? I have to stay far, far away from such treats, as they will immediately find a permanent home on my stomach and thighs. You all know the old adage, "A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips". Well, for many women, including myself, this rings all too true. Fortunately, I don't often crave sweets. But on the rare occasion that I do want something sweet, decadent and creamy, I end up feeling horribly guilty for my indulgences.
My personal favorite is the Dark Chocolate Dulce De Leche Dessert Bars. Oh. My. Gosh. The chocolate shell is rich and melts in your mouth. Underneath you'll find creamy vanilla ice cream with sinful swirls of some of the most gooey, mouthwatering caramel I've ever tried. Yum! I also love the fudge bars. These are soft, creamy, and almost remind me of some famous pudding pops I remember eating as a child. Oh, and I can't forget the Dark Chocolate Raspberry Bars and the Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Dessert Bars. These, too, were absolutely fantastic.
Here's the skinny on some of these mouth-watering varieties. (Be sure to wipe the drool off of your keyboard):
- Weight Watchers Snack Size Chocolate Fudge Bar: This delightful, chocolate-y snack-sized treat offers real ice cream smoothness with only 45 calories per bar and less than 1g of fat. For a PointsPlus value of 1 per bar, it is the perfect size to satisfy your sweet tooth.
- Weight Watchers Dark Chocolate Raspberry Bars: Offering an indulgent combination of fruitful raspberry and dark chocolate, these bars are made with low fat raspberry ice cream with raspberries covered with a dark chocolate flavored coating. Each bar has a PointsPlus value of 2 per bar and just 80 calories- the perfect way to add flavor to your afternoon.
- Weight Watchers Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Dessert Bars: Featuring low fat cheesecake ice cream with a raspberry swirl dipped in dark chocolate. Each bar has a PointsPlus value of 3 per bar and 110 calories.
- Weight Watchers Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Dessert Bars: Featuring low fat strawberry ice cream with a strawberry swirl dipped in a milk chocolate. Each bar has a PointsPlus value of 3 per bar and only 100 calories!
The best part? Each of these deceptively skinny treats has a PointsPlus value of 3 or less to help you snack smart in 2012 and stick to those New Year's Resolutions. How awesome is that?! With Weight Watchers Ice Cream snacks, I no longer have to deprive myself of dessert. (Or feel horrible when I indulge!) Overall, I was incredibly surprised by just how tasty these treats were. They do not taste like diet food at all. As a matter of fact, I'd recommend you try them, whether you're trying to lose weight or not. They're creamy, flavorful, delicious, and guilt-free. I have already returned to the store and purchased a few more boxes! 2012 just got a little sweeter in my house! Maybe I'll be able to break out that bikini this summer after all!
Weight Watchers Ice Cream treats can be found in the freezer section of most fine grocers.
