Feature Friday! Candy

It's Friday & it's the start of a long weekend so why not celebrate with something sweet? Well that usually leads me to trouble...

Luckily I have found sweet treats that give me the sugary chocolate experience I'm after, without having to pay for it.  I am in LOVE with the line of Whitman's candies endorsed by Weight Watchers.  Now this isn't nasty no taste sugar free candy! Were talking chocolaty, creamy, peanut buttery, loaded with caramel candies! I haven't tried all of them but I am partial to the Caramel Medallions & The Peanut Butter Cups.  My friend however is in love with the mint patties and I have had the toffee ones which are good too.  So I am pretty confident in saying that they rock. 

They are a great late night treat when you NEED something sweet or a perfect little dessert. I also grab one when I come home from work some days when I am starving and I still need to make dinner.The best part is they are only 1 or 2 WW points.  Not bad right?

Like I said my two favorites are:

        Carmel Medallions 1point      Peanut Butter Cup 2points

They offer so many choices, you’re sure to find one you love!
Pecan Crowns 1Points
Mint Patties 1Points
Coconut 1Points
Crispy Butter Cream Caramel 1Points
Peanut Butter Crunch 1Points
Caramel Medallions 1Points
Almond Nougat 1Points
NougieNuttyChew 1Points
English Toffee Squares 1Points
Double Chocolate Mousse 2Points
Peanut Butter Cups 2Points

I encourage you to try them out and also try the other options that may suit your tastes better. My grocery store sells at least 5 different candies (Stop & Shop). They may be hard to find some places, I can't get them at Shop Rite.  If your store doesn't carry them ask them if they could!  Let me know what you think! Or have you already tried them?


  1. Love love love the caramel ones, though I want to eat the whole bag which defeats the purpose, but still it's better than eating a twix bar right???
