Declaring Independence from Guilty Eating (#hsysimplepleasures)

I'm a bit of a chocolate lover.  I don't do dark (I give any dark chocolate I receive to my husband), but I really enjoy a nice milk chocolate.  The new Hershey's Simple Pleasures Chocolate is just as creamy and decadent as any typical high-quality chocolate you crave, but Hershey’s Simple Pleasures chocolates have 30 percent less fat than the average leading milk chocolates!

We sampled three varieties of this chocolate this week (Milk Chocolate with Vanilla Créme, Milk Chocolate with Chocolate Créme, Dark Chocolate with Chocolate Créme); I had to keep the bags in the fridge because our house was running hot.  They were a nice treat to have with my coffee each afternoon, and with 6 pieces per serving, they were more than satisfying.

Here is the nutrition info straight from the package label:

This is one of those products that "Mommy doesn't like to share", but if you're more generous than I and would let your kids have a piece, it's something they would enjoy, as well!  My fave is the milk chocolate filled with vanilla creme.

Check out these pics of how neatly wrapped the little guys are, as well as how perfect the creamy center looks.

I could see these an an upgrade to certain other foil-wrapped chocolates; you can put them in a gift-basket or the bottom of a glass vase for a cute centerpiece!  The main reason why I'm so giddy over these treats, however, is the 30% less fat thing.  I can't say "no" to chocolate, so this makes me feel a bit better when I eat it.
