Post Christmas Chocolate at Sam's Club Part 2
The cookies are 5 to a serving but they require a warning because that serving has 1g of transfat which you really need to seriously limit in your diet. That serving also has 150 calories, 4.5g saturated fat, 55mg sodium, 1g fiber, 14g sugars, 2g protein, and 2% of the iron you need daily. To be blunt these also taste far more like vanilla than chocolate so not eating many of them was no struggle for me since I look for a solid cocoa component. These are about the size of a poker chip of triple thickness and also had white drizzle on the top.
I'd have been more happy if this had been nothing but the marshmallows in terms of chocolaty taste and nutritional worries. But for $3 at post-holiday sales prices, this was still a good deal. Who knows? Maybe you can find it still in your local Sam's either in this green or another color of reusable bag.
Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
