Jolly VoxBox | Skinny Cow Candy

I received the Jolly VoxBox from Influenster a few weeks ago. (You can see my "unveiling" post here.) Over the next couple of weeks, I'm going to review each of the products I received. I'd love to hear your thoughts on these products too!

TA DA! Presenting almost too good to be true Skinny Cow Candy! Unbelievably chocolatey. Melt-in-your-mouth madness. Perfectly yummy portions. Skinny's line of candy weighs in at 110 to 130 calories. So if you've been avoiding the candy aisle, welcome back. You're gonna feel like a kid in a candy store. You can find more Skinny Cow products on their website. (Suggested Retail Price: $3.99/box, $1.09/single bar or pouch)

My Thoughts
I received a box of the Peanut Butter Creme candy—6 pouches in the box, 3 pieces of candy in each pouch. I'll admit I was skeptical. You just never know about low-calorie chocolate, right? But I was pleasantly surprised!

Yep: The chocolate is really good, and the peanut butter creme is the perfect salty/savory touch. And considering one pouch is only 130 calories, I felt like this was just enough to curb my sweet tooth cravings. Hubs tried one and really enjoyed it too! In fact, he reminded me that "Sam's carries Skinny Cow stuff! Maybe we can buy in bulk now that we know we like them!" Ha! Words like "amazing" and "really good" were also used when eating ... er, testing the product!

Nope: The one drawback is the saturated fat. One pouch had 4 grams of saturated fat. That's 20% of your daily recommended value based on a 2000-calorie diet, and I shouldn't be eating 2000 calories in a day unless I do some serious working out! So, I would caution you about that.

The Verdict: With that said, I still think we'll be picking Skinny Cow products up from time to time for a lower-calorie treat.

Overall Score: A-

I received this product free from Influenster for testing purposes. I was asked to give my fair and honest opinion, which I have done.

Have you ever eaten Skinny Cow Candy? Or any other Skinny Cow treats? What did you think? Which ones were your favorite?
