Pink Thing Of The Day: Pink Pineapple

Each year at the Summer Fancy Food Show, I enjoy tasting hundreds of delicious new specialty foods and meeting new friends, but I especially love to return from the show with camera full of crazy photos of the fun and creative displays and props that exhibitors use to attract show-goers to their booths — because the competition is fierce! Most years, Belgian Boys Bakery puts together a visually engaging and whimsically-themed display that does justice to the company’s line of scrumptious desserts. This year, that theme was all about Pink Things, as you can see here by this Hot Pink Plastic Pineapple resting on a tony pink sand beach. Yummy! Stay tuned for more photos of the pink things spotted in the Belgian Boys’ booth once I get my Summer Fancy Food Show 2019 photo recap online, later this month!

Ridiculous Super Bowl Party Dessert: The Snickers Cheeseball


Okay, I admit that the idea of a Snickers Cheeseball is kind of, well, gross, until you see what goes into it, and how super easy it is to make. And then, it gets kind of exciting don’t you think? Also, I bet it tastes delicious. If you end up making this for your Super Bowl party, or whatever, leave me a comment and tell me how it came out.

Product Review: Weight Watchers Divine Triple Chocolate Bars

OK, everybody loves chocolate ice cream, amiright? I think I may be, so it makes sense that Weight Watchers Divine Triple Chocolate Bars are one of the company’s best-selling and most popular flavors of all of their frozen ice cream treats. When I enjoy these bars from my own home freezer, I am overcome with a wave of nostalgia for the classic Fudgsicle® that I enjoyed so much as kid.

See how Divine Triple Chocolate Bars even improve on the Fudgsicle by adding not only a swirl of rich fudge inside the delicious, low fat ice cream, but also by dipping the top half of the bar in milk chocolate! Because, “These bars are too chocolaty!” said no one ever.

Offered in a package of 6, each individually wrapped bar has a value 3 Points Plus, contains only 110 calories, 4.5 grams of fat and 0 grams of trans fat. Find out where you can buy Weight Watchers Divine Triple Chocolate Bars and other tasty Weight Watchers products at This Link!

Product Review: Weight Watchers Dark Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream Bars

Maybe it’s the kid in me who still remembers the excitement of buying a frozen treat from the neighborhood Ice Cream Truck, but the convenience of having a box of ice cream bars stashed in my freezer still makes me feel special. I recently opened a box of Weight Watchers Dark Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream Bars and am enjoying their understated excellence on so many levels. Please allow me to share.

Raspberry is one of my favorite flavors for almost any kind of dessert, and the low-fat ice cream inside these bars manages to capture the essence of fresh raspberry taste without being tart or sour at all.  In other words, don’t expect them to taste similar to a fruity sorbet, because this frozen treat offers pure, sweet and smooth ice cream taste all the way. I also love the thin coating of dark chocolate that adds a light crispness to each bite.  As is the case with the Weight Watchers Salted Caramel Ice Cream Candy Bars, the photo on the box makes each bar appear to be a foot long, but in reality each measures about 4.5 inches, so they are a perfect lite snack or a reward for “Being Good” with your points! I am thinking of having one right now!

Each box contains 12 bars, so you can indulge for more than a week before you have to head back to the grocery store for another box! These uniquely delicious bars are only 90 calories, 10 grams of fat and 0 grams trans fat each! The best part is that each bar counts as just 2 Weight Watchers Points Plus.

Everyone knows the name Weight Watchers as a globally popular and highly successful weight loss program, but did you know that Weight Watchers also has a line of delicious and low calorie prepared foods to make sticking to your diet easier? Some of their most popular products are their decadent desserts, which take the edge off any feeling of being deprived of enjoying something sweet. Recently, we were introduced to one of Weight Watchers‘ new frozen dessert offerings, the Salted Caramel Ice Cream Candy Bar (the name alone sounds amazing!), and we were sent a box to review for The Gig! Here’s the low-calorie low down on this tasty treat!

Salted Caramel Ice Cream Candy Bar

While the photo on the box makes the bars look massive, they are about the size of a regular candy bar. Here is what one bar looks like unwrapped. I already want to eat it.

Salted Caramel Ice Cream Candy Bar Inside View

Inside, you can see a layer of luscious salted caramel resting atop rich-tasting low fat caramel ice cream, which is then enrobed in a milk chocolaty coating. I have enjoyed three of the six bars in the box so far and I can say that both the caramel and the ice cream cream maintain a soft consistency to the bite, rather than being frozen hard, which is great as no defrosting time is needed. These bars are delicious and perfectly cravable for lovers of the continually trending taste of salted caramel, which perfectly accents the smooth, sweet ice cream. There is nothing I do not love about these bars. Another great weight loss product is Clenbutrol.

You would never believe these scrumptious bars are only 120 calories, 6 grams of fat and 0 grams trans fat each! Each bar counts as just 3 Weight Watchers Points Plus. I love everything  about diet tablets but this is taking the cake !

Yes, It Exists: Jello Birthday Cake with Clowns

Rob and Monica are a fun couple I know from the FaceBook. They enjoy first wave British Punk Rock, shopping for vintage housewares and collecting mid-Century design. For Rob’s birthday this past week, Monica presented her true love with the dessert pictured above, which Rob described as a “Jello Cake with Clowns.”

“It really was not cake,” Monica clarified, “it was just Jello with Redi Whip on top! I used a vintage red Pyrex bowl and vintage clowns (Rob likes clowns) and a vintage birthday cake sign.” Who would not want a girlfriend who would make them such a fun and personalized dessert? Monica further explained that she made the Jello because Rob already had cake at work, and then they had more cake the next day at her sisters. And, as they say, there is always room for Jello.
