Quaker Mini Delights: Chocolatey Mint, 90 Calorie Packs

Quaker Mini Delights: Chocolatey Mint bites sounded really tasty to me. How can you screw up chocolate, mint and rice cakes [sorry, "multigrain cakes"] ? You would think I'd learn, but nope...

My initial reaction was to love these little suckers. They were bite sized, coated in chocolate and came in 90 calorie packs. The first bite revealed a good chocolate taste. The second bite produced mint. Not spearmint or wintergreen mint, but toothpaste flavored mint. Ewwww.

Adding to my disappointment was the ingredient list. The chocolate was not in fact chocolate. It was "coating", made from cocoa powder and partially hydrogenated palm kernel oil. There was also that side note of "adds a dietarily insignificant amount of trans fat."

Another Quaker thumbs down.
