Skinnygirl Chocolates: A 100 Calorie Guiltless Indulgence

January 30, 2017 by

When it comes to sweet treats, many people find themselves in a conundrum. While there are countless delicious options to choose from, they’re not always the most figure-friendly. So what’s a person to do?

In the past, your choices have been limited. You can either go with the candy that tastes good for you, but may not be good for you, or you can go with the candy that tastes just okay, but is probably better on your body.

Not a great place to be, right?

Well, we’re happy to say that those very limited days of candy choices are behind you. Now, thanks to the whole line of Skinnygirl products, you can actually enjoy your snack time, without worrying about the potentially unpronounceable ingredients or unhealthy quantities of sugar you’ve just consumed.

The Skinnygirl candies offer you a little something different for your sweet tooth. All of the candies are packed in 100-calorie bags, so you know just how much you’re eating, without any guesswork.

We have options like Belgian Milk Chocolate Truffles with Sea Salt Toffee, Belgian Dark Chocolate Bars with Pistachio Caramel, Belgian Milk Chocolate Bars with Almond Nougat and Belgian Dark Chocolate Truffles with Almonds.

The ingredients are all clear and easy to understand–like organic coconut milk and Belgian chocolate–so you never have to worry or wonder about what’s inside. And frankly, we doubt you’ll realize that they’re only 100 calories! These sweets taste just as good (if not better) than anything else you’ve eaten lately.

Add to that the fact there are no preservatives or trans fats in sight, and we think all of your candy lovers will be very happy campers.

So, if you’re looking for something a little different to add to your candy routine, then look no further! We’re excited to offer this new, delicious line to you. And, after one taste, we think you might be Skinnygirl converts, too.

Goldenbergs Peanut Chews – an iconic classic since 1917

Goldenbergs Peanut Chews have been an iconic candy favorite since 1917

Sharability: 8

Novelty: 9

Overall: 8

Though the name of the candy is Peanut Chews, I couldn’t help but think it was lying based o the picture on the wrapper. To me, it looked like solid chocolate filled with peanuts and I couldn’t fathom how that was going to be chewy.

The wrapper doesn’t say there is caramel in the inside; it just says “Bite-size chewy pieces loaded with peanuts!” So when I bit into the caramel-like substance that was filled with peanuts and covered in chocolate I wondered why they didn’t mention that on the wrapper.

Maybe it isn’t caramel. Maybe it is some chemical substance that is a cheap substitute for the “creamy” caramel that, oh so many candies love to rave about. But don’t let me put ideas in your head.

The truth is that the caramel-like substance is molasses, which is a syrupy sugar. The Peanut Chews are manufactured by Just Born, which also makes America’s favorite Easter candy, Peeps. I only had the honor of tasting the ‘milk chocolatey’ flavor, though I do know that this candy comes in original dark chocolate as well. The bar is not so much a bar, but many bars, six to be exact. Six little fun size candies, making sharing easy.

Romanian immigrant, David Goldenberg, founded the Goldenberg Candy Company in 1890. This company first introduced the Peanut Chews in 1917. This high protein and high energy bar was originally developed as a ration bar for the U.S. military in World War I. The company went through the hands of many Goldenbergs who all did their part in making the candy what it is today.

In the 1930s Harry Goldenberg initiated the conversion from the bite size bars to a full bar with bite size pieces. Just Born accumulated the Peanut Chews in 2003. This one is a fun vintage candy, and it’s vegan too!

Star Wars Dark Chocolate M&M’s

May 19, 2005 by

What will they think of next….

Masterfoods USA just released M&M’s in Dark Chocolate to coincide with the new episode of Star Wars…

The M&M’s come in dark chocolate peanut as well as plain and they are quite good ( I would be remiss if I didn’t add that I have a weakness for dark chocolate)

Although supposedly a limited edition, you can easily collect seventy two different collector’s pack.

They are unique and if you love dark chocolate and M&M’s, my advice is to get your hands on as many as possible!
