Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup on a Diet

Kemps chocopanutbutter

There are just some days most of us crave chocolate and peanut butter. I am not sure how it gets a hold over us, but this sneaky craving must be satisfied. The coffee shop at the hospital, where I used to work, had an amazing chocolate peanut butter smoothie with a dash of espresso, which was always ordered with skim milk. The other day this treat popped in my mind,and the sweet (and salty) memory of clocking in and enjoying one last slurp of goodness lingered on my tongue. That was it. I had to find something that hit the spot. To the grocery!!

Lately if I don’t bake something I enjoy a cup of Kemps Low-Fat Black Jack Cherry Frozen yogurt or Kroger’s Strawberry Frozen Yogurt. Both of those options are around 100-110 calories/ serving. This is usually accompanied by a drizzle of chocolate, though. I was going to reach for my usual, when what did I see, but a possible craving quencher? There in the glowing freezer sat a carton of Kemps Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Frozen Yogurt. Many times a frozen yogurt that has indulgent flavors tends to be just as high in calories as ice cream. The nutrition facts sat on the borderline of acceptable for me. I decided that it had to be tested. In the cart and off to the house we went.

At the house, tea cup and scoop ready, I dipped the frozen yogurt into my cup. The texture was creamy and thick. I could hear some of the air bubbles from having been a frothy bath at one point. These were excellent signs. Anticipation floated me into the living room to get cozy for my first bite. The spoon dipped and brought the yogurt to my lips and yum. This base was some serious chocolate flavor. It really had the same texture and richness as Edy’s Rocky Road Slow Churn Ice Cream. After several bites of chocolate I finally got a bite of it. A large chunk of a chocolate peanut butter cup. The bite I had been waiting patiently for. The candy was well-made, but it lacked enough peanut butter filling to justify the wait. Slightly disappointed I finished the dessert. It really was quality flavor and the few bites with chocolate peanut butter cup were sufficiently large. It simply fell short of my expectations.

Though it fell short, I must say that everyone has a different preference of ratio of chocolate to peanut butter. It still was an outstanding frozen yogurt. The chocolate was really good. So if you only like a small bit of peanut butter in your ratio, then this is a perfect healthy dessert addition. If your ratio consists of higher amounts of peanut butter, you may want to make something yourself. The reason they probably made it this way is because peanut butter is so high in fat and when made desserty, it can have a lot of sugar. As an attempt to make a healthy version it was successful at making you feel as if you are eating a rich dessert. However, it could leave you asking, “Where’s the peanut butter?”
