Yoplait Whips Chocolate Mousse Review

Yoplait Whips Chocolate MousseWe have often professed our love for Yoplait Light here on Iateapie.net, yet the Yoplait Light Thick & Creamy and Yoplait Delights have let us down a bit. Still, I have a soft spot for Yoplait and so when I realized hadn't tried Yoplait Whips, I bought the Chocolate Mousse Style Whips ($0.60 each), and stuck it in the freezer upon returning home.

The next night, I reluctantly grabbed a spoon and dug in to see what all of the fuss was about. I have frozen yogurt cups before and they turned into a hard rock that you either must thaw in the microwave or chip away at, bit by bit. However, Yoplait Whips are fluffy, air-y and comparable to your average mousse prior to being frozen, so they take to freezing quite well. As a matter of fact, when you remove the container from the freezer, you can immediately scoop into the smooth and creamy creation just like you would with ice cream. The chocolate flavor is a bit artificial, with the chocolate liquor taking a strong presence; but will still satisfy a chocolate craving in a cool way.

Of course, you don't have to indulge in the frozen form of Yoplait Whips (although I would highly suggest it) because they are very delicious straight from the fridge. The texture is light and fluffy like a good mousse should be and retains the same slightly-off chocolate flavor (which grows on you after the first somewhat offsetting bite).

Each 4 ounce container of Yoplait Whips Chocolate Mousse provides 160 calories, 4 grams of total fat, 2.5 grams of saturated fat (6% & 12% of the daily value), 105 mg of sodium (4% of the DV), 5 grams of protein and 26 grams of carbohydrates which includes 23 grams of sugar. There is also 10% of the DV for Calcium, Vitamin A and Vitamin D. Although there are no artificial sweeteners to be found in the ingredients list, you will see a variety of sugars including high fructose corn syrup plus artificial flavors and colors (Red 40, Yellow 6 and Blue 1).

Yoplait says "Finally A Guilt-Free Way to Enjoy Chocolate." While I agree that the taste is quite delicious, there is way too much sugar in a 4 ounce container for me to consider this "guilt free."
