Right guys, time for another Weight Watcher's review. As many of you know I have been doing the Weight Watcher's diet since September and so far have lost 17 pounds in total. I have a bit of a sweet tooth and so like my naughty treats, so I was worried about how I was going to cope without my chocolate fix....although once I discovered these Chocolate Cake Bars from the Weight Watcher's range, I didn't need to worry.
Being a low fat product, I was expecting these to be horrible; really bland and nothing like chocolate. However, I cannot get over how 'real' they seem. I really feel as though I am eating a proper chocolate roll. The chocolate is just as tasty as any other chocolate and is nice and sweet and doesn't feel 'watered down' or 'weak' as some diet chocolate products taste. The cake is lovely; soft and moist and compliments the chocolate really well. I find these bars to be incredibly more-ish although they are quite filling which is good. I was also surprised to learn that they are just 2 Weight Watcher points per bar! Get in!! Another advantage is that they also go great with a cuppa tea which means that they are great for anytime of the day!
One thing which is a bit of negative with these bars, and is the only negative is the price. From what I can gather they are only available from Weight Watcher's meetings and I don't know if the fact that they are 'exclusive' is the reason why they are so expensive. Expect to pay around £2 for these.
Other than that, I absolutely love these and would definitely recommend them!
Thanks for reading!
In short, these bars have to be one of the most revolting things I have had the misfortune of eating in a HELL of a long time.They taste chemical. The sponge is dry and the sauce feels oily on the tongue.If it's possible, they tasted like a cheap Chinese nail salon smells.I really wouldn't waste your money or insult your tastebuds by buying these. They actually made me feel slightly nauseated.I was rather suprised as most of the weight watchers products I have tried in the past have been lovely, especially the Jaffa cake bars!
when dieting it is very hard to find tasty treats without the calories. lately I have become aware that jaffa cakes and fig rolls are the best way forward for a tasty treat.
I stumbled across these in sainsbury's a couple of months ago and tried them to see if they were any good. I was pleasantly surprised by these little cakes as they were more chocolately than I had expected from such a brand as ''weight watchers''
were they any good?
well yes actually they were! I thought the cakey bit was a tad dry, but this goes unnoticed as there is the chocolate on the outside and the thin layer of some sort of chocolate sauce between the chocolate and the cake. Each cake is individually wrapped, which in my opinion is a good thing, because if they weren't I dread to think how dry the cakes would be.... now I know it kind of defeats the object of a i diet, but i needed 2 because although they were chocolately, it was just missing a bit of umpff....and although they look quite big, they are only a bit wide, as they are quite thin and not very long. but for all you weight watchers users out there (I'm personally not so I don't know if this is good or not...) but they are only 1.5 units per bar.
overall an ok-ish choccie treat, but I've had better!
I have always stayed away from "Diet" Cakes. I find that they are sort of full of empty calories and for the sake of about 90 calories, I find I can get a more filling eat than a little lump of Cake.
I picked up a pack of these for the first time about 2 weeks ago. There was quite a few Cakes on offer for £1 a pack, and it wasn't just the nice tasty ones, it was Weight Watchers and the Supermarket own brand of low fat Cakes as well.
These came in the normal kind of wrapper. The Cakes were individually wrapped and although they looked quite wide, they weren't that thick or long. Still I suppose I can't complain since they didn't have many calories in them.
There were lumps of Chocolate flavoured sponge, which has a thin line of Chocolate on the top. There wasn't much Chocolate and the Sponge tasted dry and a bit stale. It was so stale, and I had to have a drink when eating this. It's a shame as Weight Watchers food is normally pretty nice in my view, and although it is low calorie I find it often tasty, apart from these which were tasteless.
I will not be buying these again, as they were yukky and tasteless.
I bought these a couple of weeks ago because they looked like good sized tasty cake bars. They look as though they are a low fat version of a lot of the well known cake bars out there so I was looking forward to trying them. However, when I opened the multipack I was quite disappointed - the cake bars are rather small - thats why the point value is so low! Despite this, I did enjoy the cake, the sponge was moist but personally I wasnt too keen on the chocolate sauce layered on the top - it tasted rather artificial and wasnt creamy at all. They do satisfy a chocolate craving well and the chocolate coating is very nice but they do not keep you full up for long probably due to their small size. However, they are relatively nice and are worth a try. Available in most supermarkets.
I was given a couple of Weight Watchers Chocolate Cake bars to try by a friend recently, she knows I generally like the Weight Watchers range of food and I honestly couldn't wait to try them as the picture on the front of the packet made them look like thinner Penguin cake bars which I like.
How disappointed I was! These cake bars are just plain nasty and I can't imagine that anyone would ever like them. They just taste synthetic, like they are completely made up of a load of chemicals with a bit of chocolate flavouring added.
The cake bars are made of chocolate sponge to which has been added a strip of solidified chocolate sauce, then it has been coated in milk chocolate. The sponge would be OK if Weight Watchers hadn't added so many sweeteners to it as they just serve to give the cake an overall bitterness, the sponge also tastes rather malty to me which doesn't go well with the sweetness of the chocolate covering.
Sorry, did I say sweetness? What I meant to say was the awful sweetness of the chocolate covering. Awful because Weight Watchers have used those blasted sweeteners again and they have really overdone it this time, the chocolate is not smooth nor creamy and it just sort of sits in my mouth in a claggy lump as it melts into the vile sponge.
Then there is the chocolate sauce. Ewwwww, it's yet another awful component of this completely awful cake. I cannot begin to describe how horrible the sauce is, it's sticky but not in a good way and again just works with the chocolate and sponge to become one big claggy mess.
I didn't finish my cake bar, I had two small mouthfuls and that was all I could stomach of it. I attempted to give the other piece to my 22 month old granddaughter, not out of cruelty but because I hate waste and thought she might like it as she eats just about everything else we give to her. She took one big mouthful, pulled a face and then spat the whole thing into her hand - and that is something unheard of when it comes to her and anything even resembling chocolate!
A pack of five of these revolting cake bars costs about £1 and contain 1 1/2 Weight Watchers points in each one, if you could stomach a whole one that is!
