“ Brand: Weight Watchers / Type: Caramel „
I have been on the weightwatchers plan for almost 2 years now. In that time I have lost almost 3 stones. It would have been more, but I do tend to go astray from time to time.
I joined online and have found it is a very good plan if you want to still be able to eat all the foods you like. Alongside the plan they have lots of products to help and support your weight loss including crisps, treats and chocolate.
Weightwatchers chocolate caramel whip bars are just divine. They are very similar in taste and texture to a milky way. They are just 1.5 points per bar, so you can easily fit them into your daily points allowance. Most other chocolate bars start at a points value of 3.5 points so it is quite a siginificant saving in points.
The only down side is that they are currently only available through weightwatchers meetings or their website. At around £2 for a box of 5, they are an average price for a bar of chocolate, although they are a little smaller than a standard chocolate bar, but then you cant have it all!
The bars have an outer layer of milk chocolate. Inside is caramel and a thick mouse like texture. They are very chocolatey in flavour and really do feel like a treat.
I buy these on a regular basis and find that they really do help me to stay on track because I can have a treat, without breaking through my points allowance - they are a must have for chocolate lovers.
I am trying to re-educate myself and lose weight, having successfully lost with weightwatchers before I decided that I would go back to them again.
My first week I had to take both my young children with me and they decided that Mummy should purchase these chocolate bars! I must point out that I am rather sceptical about replacement foods however I have been surprised by these bar:
Each bar contains 1.6g of saturated fat and 88 calories per bar which equates to 1.5 weight watchers points.
I would suggest that you will be disappointed if you expect these to be the same as a normal Mars bar but on the second try of these I decided that they were similar to how a mars used to taste with a more chewy texture they do not feel like a diet chocolate bar but rather something special in their own right. To me they taste even better when compared to a Mars bar which contains 6 points!
Cost and availability
Each box contains 5 bars at a cost of £2.05 or 41p each which is fairly reasonable in comparison to a mars bar.
I buy these through my meeting but you are also able to order through weight watchers magazine (available both in store and at meetings.
You can also purchase online at weightwatcher.co.uk/shop. You are also able to check suitability of the weightwatchers products if you suffer from any food intolerances or are vegetarian or vegan. If you purchase online there is a minimum order of three boxes.
I would recommend these bars if you occasionally fancy chocolate and if you are a mars fan then these are a great substitute and you will not feel that you are missing out plus at only 1.5 points then these will not take too much of your allowance up just be warned that you may have to share!
These taste sort of like a mars bar but without the caramel! Weight Watchers have succeeded in trying to produce everyday food and treats with fewer calories and less grams of fat. I think these bars have one and a half points so they are easy to fit into your diet and are not an off limit treat. Weight Watchers chocolate bars really suprised me because I expected them to taste awful but if I'm honest, you cant tell the difference - if anything you find yourself believing they taste better and craving them. Real milk chocolate is used meaning your sweet tooth is satisfied and the bar is very tasty aswell as filling. If you have one mid afternoon you will be happy until tea time. The bars are available from your weekly weight watchers meeting or online for about £2 for a pack of 5 and the bars are a good decent size.
Added this as a suggestion last week - so glad it is on here now! I really wanted to tell people how delicious these bars are!
I buy them from my weight watchers meeting, a pack of 5 costs £2.05. I usually alternate between getting these and the peanut or toffee ones each week as I am not really a choc-aholic I can happily live without chocolate for a while, but I do like to have something nice everyday and allow myself 2 points a day to either have a ww bar or some snack a jacks.
These bars were around before and came back again towards the end of the summer holidays by popular demand - as my leader tells me, I never had any the first time around so cant compare them but they are now meant to be more chocolatey!
Each bar is worth 1.5 points and each 25g bar contains:
18.1g carbohydrate of which 12.3g is sugars
1.6g, saturated fat
As for the bars themselves, they remind me of mars bars but obviously not as substantial. They are coated in milk chocolate and when you bite into them you get a real chocolate taste, followed by a thin layer of caramel on top of a lovely soft whip filling. They taste creamy and chocolate mixed in with caramel and are really worth a try for anyone who can get a hold of them - beware though I have seen them on ebay going for double what you would pay at a meeting so I would advise if you wanted to try them and don't go or know anyone who goes to weight watchers pop into a local meeting to get them - you can always say you are a member elsewhere!
They do taste similar to mars bars but if you are comparing the two you do know that these are a lower fat version.
I am surprised at how much chocolate you do get on these bars for a ww snack. I have also tried putting these in the fridge as it was recommended to me by the woman who sells them at my meeting. From the fridge it goes without saying they are much harder and do last longer as it takes a while to chew them - so it is nice to enjoy them from the fridge as a treat to last a bit longer.
