Jello for Adults- no alcohol involved. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8-m014al-s&NR=1 The advertisement peaked my curiosity I admit, although there are apparently some outraged viewers- how dare they frighten children? In the name of Jell-O no less!
Jello Temptations Dessert offers six different flavors. I purchased French Silk Temptations. After all, I did just return from a 10 day excusion to France- I had to go with French Silk, right? Maybe I should also have some “French Fries, French Dressing, French Bread and to drink Perrier.”* I am eating it right now so I can give my review. So here goes:
It’s chocolate- that’s a plus. Yes, I am a choco-beast. It has 140 calories that is less than a snickers bar- my personal favorite which packs 237 calories. Now lets do some math. I ran two miles this morning and burned off approximately 200 calories. Hooray, I burned off 60 more calories than I consumed eating this little treat. I must admit the appearance disappointed me. They look so ”tempting” on the comercial. A fancy little layered dessert from the grocery store, however; it looks nothing like the commercial. It comes in a black plastic cup. What a disappointment! I couldn’t even see the cute little layers. I even tried to get it neatly out of the container to no avail. If I could choose, I would probably go with a snickers as it includes nuts and caramel. I prefer “stuff” in my chocolate. It’s probably not a fair comparison and at 237 calories not even a snickers is worth the sweat in the gym to burn it off! That being said, it is more sophisticated than a pudding cup or coagulated jello in a plastic cup and in a pinch it would definately curb sugar withdrawls. Although it is not creme brulee it also doesn’t come with the average calorie count of 575 per serving. Ha! 575 calories- creme brulee doesn’t look quite so innocent now does it! Sink your fangs into some Jell-O Temptations and let us know what you think.
Be Tempted with a little Jell-O Joy today!
