As anyone who has met me knows, I could stand to lose a little weight.
And if you think it’s more than a little, you can keep that to yourself.
So when I got the opportunity to try Hershey’s new Simple Pleasures chocolates, I was all a flutter.
Chocolate? Yes, please.
BETTER FOR YOU chocolate? Bring it on, sister. Losing weight is hard. I welcome anything that makes that a little easier to bear.
Unfortunately, the teenager was home when the shipment came in. Here’s a picture of him, getting his share. THIS is one less than a serving size. Because he was busy putting one into his mouth.
Hershey sent me a sample pack of each of the three flavors. There’s a dark chocolate with chocolate creme, milk chocolate with chocolate creme and a milk chocolate with vanilla creme. My favorite was the milk chocolate with chocolate creme. The kids enjoyed the milk chocolate with vanilla creme. There is also a distinct possibility that the rest of the chocolate is hidden from everyone else in a place they’ll never look – the back of the fridge.
Hershey’s Simple Pleasures chocolates have 30 percent less fat than the average leading milk chocolates. They are so light and delicious, you won’t even miss the fat. Promise. Packed with flavor, I was satisfied with just one or two pieces every time I had a craving!
