Jell-O Dark Chocolate Decadence Sugar Free Mousse Temptations Review

Jell-O Dark Chocolate Decadence Sugar Free Mousse TemptationsI've been hearing about Jell-o Mousse Temptations for a while now, and when I saw the Dark Chocolate Decadence flavor in the grocery store on sale for $3.69, I bought some right away. I love mousse, but generally it's so loaded with fat and calories that it becomes a complete nutritional nightmare; not so with this variety! This mousse is sugar free, so it has significantly fewer calories than regular mousse. Plus, it comes portion-controlled in 4-ounce serving cups.

Serving Size: 1/2 cup
Calories: 60
Total Fat: 2.5 grams, 5%
Saturated Fat: 1.5 grams, 8%
Sodium: 100 mg, 4%
Carbohydrates: 10 grams
Fiber: 1 gram, 4%
Sugars: 0 grams
Protein: 2 grams

I brought home my mousse and opened one right away. My first impressions: I love the black mousse cups; they add a nice visual pizazz to the treat. I also loved the smell, rich and chocolatey, and when I dug in, the texture blew me away. I was mildly prepared for a
flimsy, watery mousse, but this one was thick and smooth. The flavor was perfectly dark, and the combination of texture and taste was amazing. It reminds me a little bit of brownie batter.

As a kid, I remember being completely fascinated with the concept of gelatin. It's not exactly a solid food, yet not liquid ... and when you poke it, it jiggles! Plus it was always a good eat, whether paired with whipped cream, layered in a jello casserole, or solo. Even so, until one of the relatives trotted out this traditional dish at a family gathering, I had neglected this childhood staple for the past decade or so! During a routine grocery shop, I happened to spy Royal Sugar Free Strawberry Gelatin, and decided to try it out of nostalgia for the original, and curiosity about how a sugar-free version would taste.

Serving Size: 0.5 cup (4 servings/pkg)
Calories: 50
Total Fat: 0%
Sodium: 0%
Carbohydrates: 0 grams
Protein: 1 gram
Price: $0.25

I tried it as a stand-alone snack by making it in a bowl. The flavor reminded me of the jello that I loved as a child: sweet strawberry (the flavor I chose to sample), with only a slight aftertaste that is associated with sugar free products. However, for such a low calorie snack, I think the slight taste difference is well worth it.

A serving of Royal Sugar Free Strawberry Gelatin is 1/2 cup, which provides 5 measly calories, no fat, and no sugar. The calories come from the 1 gram of protein in each serving, which, for those watching carbs, is excellent news. Each package provides 4 servings and I readily admit to eating the entire thing in one sitting. The HUGE 2-cup portion that I had left me completely satisfied.

Jell-O Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix Singles Review

Jell-O Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix Singles I completely fell for an ad in a magazine for Jell-O Pudding Mix Singles. Something about being away from home, not having had homemade pudding for a while and a love for all things cold and creamy drew me in. I was so intrigued that I went to the store later that day to search them out.

Jell-O Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix Singles The directions say to add 1/2 cup of milk to one packet, stir vigorously for 1 1/2 minutes and let sit for 5 minutes. After wearing out my stopwatch, it was time to dig in. The appearance and prominent vanilla flavor is typical of pudding - although it looks nothing like the picture on the box. The color is a light yellow and the mixture looks thicker than it actually is - the consistency similar to that of an uncooked cake mix. Gigi Reviews makes a good point that you could just as easily purchase Jello Pudding Cups, which is already made and portioned for individuals.
