Miss Meringue Sugar Free Vanilla Minis Review

Miss Meringue Sugar Free Vanilla MinisI've been to Paris 3 times in my life, including twice when I was in middle school, and what I remember most from those early times is the food. In particular, the French read and the meringues. When I was there, I would eat a big meringue (or two) in one sitting. The ingredients of a meringue are basically egg whites, cream of tartar and a LOAD of sugar. I was quite intrigued when I saw a sugar free version of one of my favorite treats. How would Miss Meringue Sugar Free Vanilla Minis fare?!

Miss Meringue says "Light does not mean tasteless so at Miss Meringue we made sure that to use the same delicious Vanilla you've always enjoyed." These meringues are small and poppable but light and crunchy. The vanilla flavor is really nice, and they're so much fun to eat. A caveat, though: they stick to your teeth like crazy! It's not a big deal if you have something to drink, but otherwise, it's a bit annoying.

Well, the true reveal is in the nutrition facts of Miss Meringue Sugar Free Vanilla Minis. A 13 cookie serving (4 servings per container) provides just 35 calories, no fat, 3 grams of fiber, 6 grams of sugar alcohols, and 4 grams of protein. Have I died and gone to candy heaven?!

The ingredients include Egg Whites, Isomalt, Dried Egg White, Alkalized Defatted Cocoa Powder, Inulin (Vegetable Fiber), Tartaric Acid, Sucralose (Splenda Brand). Watch out: excess isomalt can have a laxative effect - so don't eat too much at once.

A 43 gram tub of Miss Meringue Sugar Free Vanilla Minis cost $4.99 at Amazon.com, which is a little expensive, but it's worth keeping a tub of these around the house for whenever you get some sweet cravings. Overall, I love these 35 calories, no fat & sugar mini meringues and will definitely buy more in the future.
