I was in the grocery store in California picking up some staples when I saw South Beach Living Snack Pack Delights Dark Chocolate Covered Soynuts sitting inconspicuously on the shelf. No sooner had I spotted it than it found its way into my basket as I'm a big fan of South Beach Living products (their nutrition bars and frozen meals are pretty good).
As you might expect from 100 calorie pouches of chocolate and nuts, these packs are small; each contains a 2/3 ounce serving of the snack. Size aside, this snack is fantastic. The dark chocolate is smooth and flavorful, and the nuts are crunchy and pair perfectly with the chocolate.
Along with 100 calories, South Beach Living Snack Pack Delights Dark Chocolate Covered Soynuts provides 6 grams of fat, 3 grams of saturated fat, 2 grams of fiber, 6 grams of sugar and 3 grams of protein. That's considerable less fat than a serving of peanuts. The ingredients list is not too bad either with just semisweet chocolate (sugar, chocolate, cocoa butter), oil roasted soynuts (soybeans, soybean oil), confectioner's glaze, gum arabic, and corn syrup.
A pack of 7 100-calorie, pre-portioned bags cost a whopping $4.59 (the price is as high as $5.39 on drugstore.com), but I'm glad I bought it and will be buying this again occasionally (I'd buy it m ore often if it were cheaper). I look forward to eating it by itself and also adding these bits to my popcorn for a sweet-and-salty snack.
