Try/Don't Try

I figured out a way I can share more of what I'm doing without weighing myself down with worry over letting you guys down if I don't update every single day.

Introducing - Try. Don't try.

I do tend to try a lot of new things as I'm looking to get away from my bad habits (spaghetti) and into newer ones (steamed veggies and lean proteins). I also try a lot of new products through my work.

So, during my lunch hours, I will update you guys on something new I've tried recently. It won't necessarily be every single day, but at least twice a week.

This way, I can share foods you should buy in the grocery and try (or not) and great recipes I've found (or ones to avoid).


So for the inaugural post of Try. Don't try.





Nutrition Facts (from Chocolate Indulgence)
1 snack has...
60 calories
3g of total fat
2g of sat fat
0g of sugar
2g protein

First ingredient
Water

Ups
Only 60 calories. Come on, how great!
Convenient and easy to carry in your lunch
Texture is very light, so those of you who are anti-pudding might still enjoy this

Downs
Sucralose - oy! how I hate artificial sweeteners.
Sat fat is kind of high for a product like this.

Taste
I tried all three flavors... Chocolate Indulgence, Dark Chocolate Decadence, and Caramel Creme ...and my favorite is hands down Dark Chocolate Decadence. But if you're not a dark chocolate fan, don't come near it. It speaks to my dark-chocolate-loving heart. Chocolate Indulgence is great, middle-of-the-road chocolate for everyone else. And while I don't like caramel as a rule, Caramel Creme wasn't all that bad. It is sweet, a little too sweet for me, but it was good.

Verdict
Try

  3. Looks totally amazing. I wonder if I could control myself since it has no sugar. Usually I have a problem not eating all the jello chocolate pudding.
