Screen Shot 2013-09-25 at 07.44.14It may not be time for bikini bodies anymore, but you still might be keeping an eye on your weight…so what can you eat? Well, chocolate is normally a big no-no, but fear not, we think Weight Watchers may have just found the solution!! 

The new product team at Weight Watchers Hot Chocolate have been working hard with you in mind to develop a fantastic premium hot chocolate that delivers a more intense chocolate drink – and that’s low fat too!  What’s more, it can even be used in home baking!

We here at Snoochie Boochies gave it a try, and can seriously vouch for the fact that it tastes great! You could easily swap your calorific hot choc for this little number and you wouldn’t even notice the difference in flavour. In fact it tastes creamier and more luxurious than some of the market leaders, who knew?!

And if you’re keeping count of points, Weight Watchers Select Hot Chocolate will be a lower ProPoints® value alternative to other premium ‘add milk’ hot chocolate brands such as Green & Blacks, Twinings and Charbonnel.Screen Shot 2013-09-25 at 07.43.42

Weight Watchers Select Hot Chocolate’s unique formula contains 50% real chocolate but is still low in fat. Containing only 92 calories and with a ProPoints value of just 2 per serving, Select will be an indulgent delight for chocolate lovers looking for a real chocolate hit without giving up on the plan. The new hot chocolate drink will also offer tremendous value for money with an RSP of £2.49 for a massive 36 servings in the 216g tub.

When compared with the established Weight Watchers Hot Chocolate instant range, the new luxury product also has the added benefit of being home baking friendly and can easily be used as a substitute for cocoa powder in sweet treats such as brownies, muffins and biscuits!Screen Shot 2013-09-25 at 07.43.58
