I cannot even put into words how delicious these bars are! They are so much like the real rice krispie treats unlike the Kellogs brand which to me is a bit dry and tasteless. The bars are soft and gooey and the treats are so sweet. I'll be honest - it is so hard to eat just one, but if you are really following a diet plan, one is a great treat and can be very filling. I found mine at my local Walmart and they were $1.50 for a box of 8. Lately I haven't been able to find them so I hope they still carry them. They are on Little Debbie's website -

I'm Baaack!!!

I know it's been a while since I posted, but I'm a Grad student and school and other ventures I'm working on totally monopolized my time. Unfortunately over the holidays I also fell off the wagon, well not just fell off, bounced down the street and then was run over by the wagon. I ate like it was going out of style and now, I'm having to start over. But the good thing is I found a lot of new and exciting foods that will help me on my quest for a new summer body.

Today while I was in Walmart I found new Weight Watchers chocolate brownies. There were four in a box and they were $2.50. I normally wouldn't pay that price for only four, but I thought I would try them as an occasional treat. I absolutely love the oatmeal raisin cookies so I was looking forward to trying the brownies. The brownies are a pretty decent size (I'll post pictures later). The texture is okay, they are definitely not fudgy (if that's a word). They actually seem kind of tough. The taste is just okay. It's the kind of snack that if you are not a chocolate person and just like this kind of snack every once in a while, this may satisfy you. I looooove brownies and would eat them every day if I could, so I was disappointed. Overall they are okay, but I won't be buying them again. I'll just wait until I can splurge and bake some "regular" brownies.
