REVIEW: Skinny Cow Heavenly Crisp Candy Bar

Nestle Heavenly Crisp milk chocolate

I can just feel my manliness kind of shrink while eating and reviewing this snack food. Based on the logo on the package I should be a bodacious bovine concerned about my weight. I guess these Skinny Cow Heavenly Crisp bars from Nestle are trying to be on that market as it advertises only 110 calories and on the official Weight Watchers point scale it is only 3 points. It also features 3 grams of fiber and only 6 grams of fat. Can't beat that!

So these Skinny Cow Heavenly Crisp bars are pseudo healthy snacks, right? Well I'm sure you're wondering if they taste good. Lets see then. I bought the milk chocolate flavor and it does have a  nice cocoa taste. Another great thing about it which probably goes along with the whole 110 calorie, 3 points Weight Watchers idea is it is a good snack portion. Did not really find myself wondering where it went so fast or find myself forcing myself to eat it. The only downside to these Skinny Cow Heavenly Crisp Candy Bars is the middle is kind of dry. The middle is comprised of wafer material kind of like the Little Debbie Nutty Bars but with layers of chocolate instead of peanut butter inside. However still dry and could use a little bit more moist chocolate inside to compromise the wafers

Overall though these Skinny Cow Heavenly Crisp Candy Bars are fairly good although for the price (4.99$) I found them to be a bit of a pricey snack. Also they are clearly marketed towards a female most likely middle aged range but they taste good so if you can eat these in secret and have the money they are pretty good.

  1. One problem with these healthy delicious foods is they are always so expensive like you said. Don't think I'd even try it for $5, that's ludicrous. Maybe if it was like $2.99 or something reasonable at least, geez. $5 for 110 calories is a huge rip off.
