Dear Skinny Cow: Please Be My Valentine!

Skinny Cow Hazelnut Heavenly Crisp bar“Don’t you say it,” I warned Staff when she first saw the new Nestlé Skinny Cow chocolates on my desk. I can read her mind, you see. She was about to blurt “You are what you eat, Skinny Cow.” Not really a bad thing, actually, but I knew which word she’d put all the stress on, and it wasn’t going to be “skinny.” And now that I’ve let her try them, Staff is super glad she said “those look yummy” instead.

Skinny Cow Heavenly Crisp Bars_Milk Chocolate_Hazelnut_Peanut ButterIt’s Valentine’s Day, sometimes a tricky day for singletons. I’m a singleton, and so is Staff, but today isn’t bothering us in the least. We can’t give all the credit to Skinny Cow’s tasty, not-too-sweet chocolate-covered-wafer treats, but the cheeky logo and guilt-free nature of their 100-calorie bars don’t hurt. All day we’ve been looking forward to afternoon tea with our new friends Milk Chocolate, Hazelnut and Peanut Butter Heavenly Crisps. (At Beautygeeks, we all share a particular fondness for the Peanut Butter flavour, which is much lighter than the usual peanut-butter-flavoured fare out there.)

Skinny Cow Dreamy ClustersYou probably first met Skinny Cow when the ice-cream debuted in grocery-store freezers in 2004. These Heavenly Crisp bars, and 120-cal packages of crisp+caramel+chocolate Dreamy Clusters are waaaay easier to carry in your purse, stash in your desk for that 3pm pick-me-up indulgence, or smuggle into your favourite coffee shop to go with your $9 latte. (I will deny this conversation happened if you ever tell anyone I said that last part.) And they’re easy to share, too — a delicious treat that won’t break the daily-calorie bank makes most people smile. You might even get compliments on being a good friend.

Happy Valentine’s Guilt-Free Chocolate Day!

Are you a singleton? What’s your view of Valentine’s Day? Would guilt-free chocolate-y snacks make a difference? And how about that 3pm pick-me-up — as in treat, not Valentine?

Singleton Heavenly Crisp bars and Dreamy Clusters packages ring in at about $1.09 each at major drugstores and retailers across Canada. Share-friendly packs of four are about $3.79. Get more info via the Skinny Cow Canada Facebook page and skinnycowcanada.ca.

I’m so embarrassed but I need controlled portions of snacks or I’ll
just eat a whole row of cookies, a whole bag of chips.

I like the idea of a 100 calorie chocolate Bar. But if I kept it in my desk, I’d probably eat it before lunch.

I’m exactly the same, Kelly — must refrain from buying the four-packs; singletons 4EVAH.

I buy the four-packs. I’ve been known to buy four of the four-packs.

I kinda like Valentine’s Day (and this coming from a singleton swimming in a sea of married friends). I like the idea of it, and the gift giving, and the treats. It’s Christmas for lovers, come on, that’s not bad!

Still not convinced on the Skinny Cow. I don’t do diet anything. But, I do highly enjoy wafer-style treats, so I am intrigued…

Well put, Naddy! Re: diet thing, I think it’s more about sensible snack-size portions than low-cal ingredients. They certainly don’t taste diet-like. #delish
