Hershey’s has become my best friend! Seriously, I am watching my weight and can’t consume much caffeine, but the Hershey Company has come up with a great little chocolate treat that’s just perfect for people like me.
Hershey’s Chocolate Sticks
Hershey’s Sticks come in a small brown box which contains nine sticks, all individually wrapped. They measure about six inches long and are only about one half inch wide, and are filled with a gooey, creamy caramel!
These sticks come in five varieties, special dark chocolate, extra dark chocolate, milk chocolate, mint milk chocolate, and the version I am reviewing, caramel filled milk chocolate.
I admit it, I am chocoholic, I absolutely love chocolate, but not all chocolate is created equal. Of course I love high end brands like Godiva, and while these Hershey’s Sticks don’t measure up to the Godvia standard, they are a nice sweet treat when I get that craving for sugar or chocolate.
The milk chocolate is smooth and creamy, but not quite as rich as some other chocolates, I’d say it tastes about the same as a Hershey’s milk chocolate bar, but a little better because of the caramel filling. I’ve always loved caramel and chocolate together, and this caramel is very soft, when I bite into the sticks, the caramel oozes out and it can even be messy at times.
Low In Calories!
What I love the most about Hershey’s Caramel Filled Milk Chocolate Sticks is that they contain only 60 calories! That’s right, 60! Who can’t fit that into their diet plan? One stick also provides 3 grams of fat, 1 gram of saturated fat, zero trans fats, less than 5 mg of cholesterol, 10 mg of sodium, 7 grams of carbohydrates, 6 grams of sugar, and less than 1 gram of protein.
The Hershey Company has been bringing us chocolate treats since 1894, and I have enjoyed their products for many years. Now that I am counting fat grams and calories, as well as being careful about how much caffeine I consume, I have come to rely on Hershey’s Sticks to get me over that hump when I get a craving for sugar. Diets are only successful if you stick to them, for me it’s a life long struggle.
When I am feeling deprived it’s very easy for me to fall off the wagon and indulge in foods I know I should not eat. These Hershey’s Sticks are a small reward when I need it.
Although the sticks are small, they do satisfy that need for something sweet, and I try to always have a box of these on hand for when I crave chocolate. They really hit the spot!
