I've been on a diet for a few months now and one of the things that you learn quite quickly on a diet is that low calorie "treats" fall into two categories - very good and very bad.
This bar is definitely in the very good camp! In fact I would go as bar as to say it is my favourite treat as it really is chocolatey (unlike some treats which taste synthetic and leave you wondering why you bothered).
The best way to describe the texture of the bar when you bite into it is is feels similar to a chocolate brownie - kind of firm, but gooey at the same time with little pieces of chocolate for you to find hidden too (Yum!)
I think this bar actually tastes like a chocolate brownie too and that's why I like it so much - as I said before it is really, really chocolatey and if you're craving chocolate it does hit the spot!
The only downside to the bar being so nice is that sometimes the small bar doesn't seem quite enough!
For 100 calories I think you will struggle to find something as nice and fulfilling (the other slim fast snack bars are good too but this one is my favourite!)
Ive been trying loads of new Slimfast products over the last week since I have been on the 3-2-1 plan but obviously the chocolate ones are the ones Im really interested in! Just because Im on a diet doesnt mean I want to give up chocolate and today I found myself craving a Galaxy so instead I went to the cupboard to find myself a "diet" chocolate fix and this is the one I chose. There were only two types of chocolate left in the cupboard and because I had already tried the other one I settled on this "Heavenly Chocolate Delight Bar". I have been throughly impressed with every other Slimfast snack so far and I hoped that this would continue my "delight" and it did to a point - but Im not sure I would eat it again.
I just threw away my packet that this came in so I cant tell you the exact nutritional information but I know that this snack bar is 100 calories or under because all the Slimfast brand snacks are. That is actually really good for you when you compare it to a proper bar of chocolate which would be way worse for you. Slimfast are trying hard to create snacks that when you eat them you dont feel like your dieting and forgoing nice food and they have managed to create a decent product here.
As this is a diet snack the bar is pretty small - as Im sure you have guessed. In fact its gone in about 3 bites but those three bites re packed with flavour and sweetness so really it doesnt need to be a massive bar. Its only meant as a snack anyway so its not designed to fill you up for hours.
Now just because I didnt enjoy this bar it doesnt mean that other people wont because my mom really enjoyed it - I only didnt like it because it is made from dark chocolate. I absolutely HATE dark chocolate with a passion so that ruined the whole bar for me even though the inside of it is absolutely lovely. The inside of the bar is like a gooey, chocolate rice crispie cake with chocolate chips added in just for extra chocolateyness and it really is yummy. If the outside of this bar had been milk chocolate then I would have been singing its praises by now but I didnt enjoy this one as much as I did with the other bar. The chocolate was just to bitter for my tastes but if you like dark chocolate then I fully recommend this because you will love it. If you dont like it though then stay away because I know for a fact you wont enjoy it. Its an okay bar that fills a whole and satisfys a craving so if your a dieter and a dark chocolate lover then go for it!
One bar of this will set you back around 69p from most supermarkets and shops but I think they are sold in multipacks in certain supermarkets so keep your eyes peeled. I dont recommend them though.
