I'd never heard of Sorbee before, Sisters and Brothers, but I got this bag on sale at my local Kroger for $1.19 compared to it’s usual $2.29 price. This 2.9oz bag has 2 servings of four truffles each. Each serving has 180 calories, 7g saturated fat, <5mg cholesterol, 2g dietary fiber, 19g Maltitol, 3g protein, and 15% of the daily calcium an adult is recommended. Now, Maltitol is a sugar alcohol that your body will not treat the same as sugar, in this case in the form of Splenda; it can have laxative effect on the body so don’t eat it large quantities.
Inside are eight individual red foil wrapped truffles that are easy to unwrap. As soon as they are, a strong scent of cocoa hit my nose. Chocolate liquor and cocoa butter are the third and fourth ingredients after the Maltitol in two forms but “lowfat cocoa powder processed with alkali” is also on the list. In other words, several forms of cocoa are in this product. Unfortunately it also wheat, soy and milk products if you have allergy concerns.
The Weight Watchers brand is created by Whitman’s Candies and have a warning about over consumption causing a laxative reaction even though I don’t see any substitutions on the ingredients list that explains why. The first ingredient in that list is milk chocolate and the candies once unwrapped from their individual gold foil bags have a solid milk chocolate smell.
I also purchased these Weight Watchers “Double Chocolate Mousse” candies from my local Kroger at some point in the past when it was on sale. 3 pieces = 1 serving = 3 WW Points! with 160 calories, 6g saturated fat, 20mg sodium, 6g dietary fiber, 11g sugars, 2g protein, 6% daily iron. Very first ingredient is dark chocolate made of chocolate processed with alkali and cocoa butter. It contains Maltitol so it may have laxative effect if you eat too much too soon. 1 circle piece measures 1.5 inches across and over 0.25 inches tall.
Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
