If you know me at all you know that I love chocolate and I love cheese. Many years ago I changed over to LF cheese and still love my cheese. Almost two years ago while starting my journey here at SP I made a vow that I would only eat dark chocolate and to this day if something is milk chocolate (except a home made chocolate cake that might have milk chocolate frosting) I only eat dark chocolate.
Well last week while grocery shopping I spotted a new Philadelphia cream cheese with dark chocolate. I looked at it and decided that because of a past experience with chocolate and cheese.....it probably wouldn't be very good. This past week while looking for coupons to use I came across one for, yes, Philadelphia Indulgence dark chocolate cream cheese.....I figured this was an omen that I should at least try it. So today I bought the product along with some sweet smelling strawberries (they are finally coming back for the season). By the time I got home it was time for lunch so I decided to give said product a try. I picked out 3 big strawberries cut them in half and measured out 1 TBSP on cream cheese. It turned out to be the absolute best tasting treat I could have wanted at any time ever.......yes I am that excited about this.
The said product has 110 cal. per 2 TBSP serving, along with 7 F, 10 Chol, 75 Sod., 12 Carb, 1 Fib., 10 Sug, and 1 pro. For me these are usable stats for just another healthy treat to add to my plan. This product comes in two sizes and 8 oz. tub and a smaller size with pre portioned cups. Take this info or leave it....I recommend a try.
One more note than I'm off for a walk. Tried Diet Snapple 1/2 and 1/2. That's 1/2 lemonade and 1/2 green/black tea. (10 cal. per bottle). I'm an ice tea drinker and can always drink a glass of good lemonade (with as little sweetener as possible). This was also a good buy....quite tasty.
That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by and hugs to all of you who read this.
Let's make this another happy/healthy day. Together we can continue on our journey.
