WeightWatchers - Chocolate Biscuits

Salad has featured high on my menu choices this week having indulged rather heavily over the past two weeks. Obviously, there have been moments when chocolate cravings have got the better of me so these Weight Watchers chocolate biscuits have arrived at the right moment.




According to the PR literature provided by Golley Slater, Weight Watchers has answered the prayers of chocolate lovers everywhere with a gorgeously decadent Belgian Milk Chocolate Biscuit.  The mouth-watering, crunchy chocolate biscuits are smothered in a thick helping of real Belgian milk chocolate - ideal for satisfying even the biggest chocolate cravings! Each biscuit is individually wrapped offering a perfect portion-controlled chocolate fix to eat on the go, at your desk as an afternoon pick me up or with friends. The pictures on the packaging are certainly encouraging! 




There are 5 chocolate biscuits individually wrapped which is a nice touch. Unfortunately, the chocolate is not bright as presented in the picture but looks as though it has suffered from temperature damage. This occurs when chocolate is subjected to sudden changes in temperature. Certainly nothing to worry about! The chocolate has a reasonable cocoa aroma and is certainly crunchy. The chocolate is not as thick as I'd imagined but we are talking about a healthy snack here. Well that's two biscuits done and dusted in quick succession. There isn't a huge amount of flavour, probably due to the minute amount of salt, but what I'm pleased about is there is no nasty after taste that was present in the chocolate cookies I reviewed previously. They're certainly going down nicely with my cup of tea.


Each Weight Watchers Chocolate Biscuit (18g) has a ProPoints value of just 2 and 89 calories, plus each biscuit is free from hydrogenated vegetable oils, artificial colourings or flavourings and Genetically Modified Organisms. Yes, I've spelt that correctly, phew! Each biscuit contains 5.4g sugars; 4.2g fat; 2g saturates and 0.1g salt. How many ProPoints are you allowed each day?


Overall I can say that these were fairly enjoyable snacks, not exciting but if I were on a diet then they would be a good answer to those chocolate cravings. These biscuits have a RRP of £1.59 for a pack of five and are available from ASDA, Sainsburys, Tesco and Waitrose.
