I know I'm not the only one who falls into the snack trap. You know, where you're not quite ready for a whole meal but you want a little something to hold you over? So, you look in your cupboard and see the (insert junk food of choice here) staring right at you. You begin drooling. You tell yourself you'll only have a few bites. But before you know it, the whole box/bag is gone and you don't want to even know how many calories you just consumed. Don't deny it. It's happened to all of us. Wouldn't it be nice to have a decadent, tasty, satisfying snack that won't sabotage your diet with empty calories?
YoCrunch® 100 Calorie Packs fit the bill.
YoCrunch® 100 Calorie Packs are the first yogurt products to be naturally sweetened with Truvia™ rebiana. Truvia™ rebiana is the key ingredient in Truvia™ natural sweetener, the first great tasting, natural, zero calorie sweetener made from the leaves of the stevia plant. They provide all the taste of low-fat yogurt but without all the calories and sugar. YoCrunch® 100 Calorie Packs give you the best of both worlds - smooth yogurt and crunchy topping - in convenient portioned sizes that make them perfect for kids and moms alike. Made with nonfat yogurt and no artificial sweeteners, YoCrunch® 100 Calorie Packs have added Vitamin A and D and are a good source of calcium and protein.
YoCrunch® 100 Calorie Packs are available in five delicious flavors:
- Cheesecake Yogurt with Graham Cookie Pieces
- Strawberry Yogurt with 100% Natural Low-Fat Granola
- Vanilla Yogurt with Chocolate Chip Cookie Pieces
- Vanilla Yogurt with Chocolate Creme Cookie Pieces
- Vanilla Yogurt with Nestle® Buncha Crunch™ Candy Pieces
The first thing I noticed was the size. For 100 calories, they sure are generous with the yogurt and the amount of cookie pieces. Definitely no scrimping here. The individual containers were portable enough to grab and go on busy mornings.
As for the taste, all I can say is YUM! I seriously would not have guessed that it was nonfat yogurt. I was hard-pressed to find the difference between this and the low-fat versions. I had never tried Truvia™ so I wasn't sure if it would have a funky aftertaste like aspartame and the other artificial varieties. I was happy to say there was none! I also found it to be quite filling. Unlike other portioned snacks, I was satisfied after one cup and didn't have the urge to eat another one. I shared some with Nate and he licked his bowl clean. Mind you, he doesn't traditionally like yogurt! Seeing as though they didn't last longer than 3 days in my house, I'll definitely be purchasing more. I think I'd like to try the Vanilla with Chocolate Chip Cookie Pieces next! My husband is a chocoholic so he is waiting for a Chocolate yogurt flavor with Chocolate candy/cookie pieces.
Bottom line: If you're looking for a healthy snack option that will satisfy your sweet tooth, look no further than YoCrunch® 100 Calorie Packs. They are the perfect complement to your breakfast or lunch, and make for a nutritious dessert or treat in between meals!
