Hershey’s Simple Pleasures

Hershey’s Simple Pleasures chocolates have 30 percent less fat than the average leading milk chocolates.

How does it make you feel knowing you can have a delicious chocolate with 30 percent less fat than the average of the leading milk chocolates?
To give you a perspective on what this difference means, I compared the points (program not affiliated with Hershey) in a single serving of Hershey's Bliss Milk Chocolates which included 6 pieces (210 calories, 120 fat calories).
Hershey's Bliss Milk Chocolates, which by the way are amazing.  6 pieces = 6 points This honestly isn't horrible.  (I believe 8 Hershey Kisses are 4 points in comparison.  But wanted to compare a similar style/size chocolate for a more accurate comparison.)

Hershey's Simple Pleasures are 180 calories a serving and 5 points for 6 pieces. Might not seem like much of a difference but there have been many days when a single point can make or break my decision to have a treat.

Ok so, if you're at all like me I know what you're thinking...but are they GOOD?And let me tell you...they taste AWESOME.  I shared them with my boys and then had to hide them so they weren't gone in one evening.  And we shared them with a few people who came by the house before we'd eaten them all and they ALL agree, in and "oh, yeah these ARE good!!" kind of way.  My personal favorite is the Milk Chocolate with Chocolate filling but they are all great. And I don't like Dark chocolate but there is enough sweetness to it that I enjoyed the Dark Chocolate Simple Pleasures.

Hershey’s Simple Pleasures chocolates give you “Sweet Independence” to enjoy delicious chocolate and feel great about loving it.  Seriously, you will be able to enjoy these fabulous chocolates knowing that they are a better alternative that doesn't taste like you've given up a THING. Honestly I think these are my new favorite chocolates, lower fat or now.

I received a complimentary selection of Hershey's Simple Pleasures to facilitate my post as part of a campaign from The Motherhood. However, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own honest, personal feedback. Seriously these are amazing!
