Chuao Chocolatier

Oh my S'mores!

 

This 41% cacao milk chocolate is filled with marshmallows and graham crackers to resemble a s'more. The flavor combination is good but I'm not sure that the die hard s'more aficionado will really go for it. It's something unique and definitely worth a try. Half a bar, about 1/4 ounces is 190 calories, 11 grams of fat and 21 grams of sugars. One note: I wouldn't mind trying this combination with dark chocolate instead of the milk chocolate.

Skinny Girl Snacks

Baked Pretzel Thins

Cucumber Dill

 

I didn't think I'd like the combination of cucumber and dill and pretzels, but I was wrong. These are actually very tasty, but I do find them a bit too salty tasting. I'm not exactly sure why they went to all the effort to license the Skinny Girl trade mark since 10 pretzels are about 120 calories, 2 1/2 grams of fat and 400 mg of sodium. A ha! In reading the package it's because they slice the pretzels thin - or not so thin?

Little Miracles

Organic Energy

Lemongrass Tea, Orange Juice, Ginger, Ginseng, Agave

 

Energy drinks aren't supposed to taste good, but this one does. A recipe of agave, apple, orange and lemon juice concentrates, mixed with lemongrass tea and panax ginseng. One bottle is 90 calories, 19 1/2 grams of sugars. It's organic but the one thing that's missing - the important thing - is telling us the amount of 'energy'. Imported from Germany.

Glee Gum

75 Sugar Free Pieces

Wild Watermelon

 

Chewing gum sales are down, but if more people would try Glee it might actually reverse the trend. No artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners, no aspartame. Made with xylitol as a sweetener instead. The watermelon flavor is nice and refreshing and the gum pieces nice and chewy. Two pieces are 5 calories and 2 grams of sugar alcohols.

Simply Southern Gourmet

Balsamic Sweet Onion Pepper Mustard

 

This is one terrific mustard, full of flavor and spicy and sweet. I could see using this as a spread on sandwiches as well as a topping on burgers, as an ingredient in salads, with just about anything. The combination of ingredients is fabulous and just the right amount of sweetness. One teaspoon is just 5 calories and 1 gram of sugars.
