Great New Item
Another word from Hungry Girl:
Ladies and gentlemen (we know you're out there, fellas!), gather 'round! Let's give a very warm welcome to one of the richest, sweetest, most delicious, guilt-free ingredients in our arsenal. Weighing in at 8 grams, enrobed in a 3.5" X 5" packet, make some noise for... Swiss Miss Diet Hot Cocoa Mix!!!
What Is It?
Swiss Miss Sensible Sweets Diet 25 Calories Hot Cocoa Mix
PER SERVING (1 packet): 25 calories, 0g fat, 160mg sodium, 4g carbs, 1g fiber, 2g sugars, 2g protein -- POINTS® value 0*
"Created with a blend of rich, dark European cocoas for real chocolate taste and flavor, Swiss Miss is America's preferred brand of hot chocolate."
"Made with care in a real dairy."
"As much calcium & vitamin D as an 8oz glass of milk."
"With 25 calories, it's the rich and creamy guilt-free treat."
All this, according to Swiss Miss. And according to us, it's the BEST diet cocoa around... and useful for WAY more than just hot chocolate!
Why Do We Love It?
HELLO!? It's hot chocolate mix with only 25 calories. AND those cocoa gurus made it taste really, REALLY good... That must've been the challenging part. Anyone can make a low-calorie product. Making one that people actually want to consume is another story. Swiss Miss NAILED it.
It's multi-talented! You may not have thought of putting hot chocolate mix into baked goods, smoothies, and various desserts to boost the chocolate factor... but we did. There's a whole list of recipes featuring these packets further down the page.
It's super convenient! Yes, ordinary cocoa powder is a great ingredient, but it's a little intense, and you have to combine it with sweetener and other items for balance. These packets are ready to go at all times. Add one and you're guaranteed to make your food or drink more chocolatey, creamy, and sweet in one fell swoop. All for just 25 calories. Nice work, you!
