Skinny Cow Dream Clusters and Heavenly Crisp

with one comment

I opened my door today to find a nice surprise at my doorstep: it was Influenster‘s first Canadian Vox Box, aptly named #MapleVoxBox! I had signed up for a chance to be picked for Influenster’s first foray into Canadian territory, but didn’t hear anything back so I figured I wasn’t chosen. Imagine my surprise when I found it this morning!

 

Skinny Cow - Dreamy Clusters and Heavenly Crisp
Skinny Cow’s Dreamy Clusters and Heavenly Crisp

Let’s start with Skinny Cow. According to their website, they were originally founded in 1991 in Jersey under the name Silhouette. They were acquired by Nestlé in 2004 and relaunched as Skinny Cow. They are known to have decadent and indulgent snacks but with much less calories. The two I received are Dreamy Clusters and Heavenly Crisp.

 

Skinny Cow - Dreamy Clusters - pieces

Each bag of Dreamy Clusters contain 5 pieces (at least in my bag) and as a whole, are 120 calories. These remind me greatly of Nestlé Crunch, the milk chocolate bar with crisped rice mixed in. Even the sweetness taste the same to me.

The only difference is that Dreamy Clusters also has some caramel in it, so each bite has a little bit of chew factor to it. It’s too bad that there’s so little in each pack but I supposed this is how you get portion control. I don’t think I’d have the self control to have a big bag and only take 5 out. To be honest, who really has THAT much self control anyways?

Next up is Heavenly Crisp. It touts itself as only 100 calories per bar.

Halfsies!

As you can see above, the bar consists of 3 wafers with a thin layer of chocolate crème flavour and covered with milk chocolate. I think the only thing I’m concerned about is the “chocolate crème flavour”. If it’s a flavour and not actually chocolate crème, then what is it??

It’s actually very light and definitely less sweet than Dream Clusters. It reminds me a lot of the wafer snacks that you can buy at the asian grocery stores, except with a little more chocolate flavour to them. They’re pretty good, but not that filling. The Dream Clusters would be more filling than this.

 

Have you ever tried Skinny Cow products before? What have you tried and how do you like it?
