1 of 1 people found the following review helpfulJanuary 06, 2019Reviewer: A customer in Texas* Summary: These chocolates taste decadent and fantastic. Much better than Healthsmartís ďChocoriteĒ candies that come in packs of 2.
Size: Each chocolate is about the size of a Popchip, but in a rectangular shape and with some height. About half the size of a pack of gum in length, but thicker/ taller in height. (The height is key because what makes these chocolates delicious is the layers - see below.) Generally, the size is small but satisfying.
Consistency/ Quality Control: Part of why I stopped buying Healthsmartís ďChocoriteĒ items was because of the lack of consistency and quality control - sometimes the chocolates were huge and sometimes they were super small. Even within the same pack, I would stumble on a set that had gone dry. I have not had the quality control problems with the Sweet Nothings. While Iíve only purchased the Sweet Nothings Chocolates once, I bought 5 bags (1 of each flavor) and was pleasantly surprised by the consistency, size, and quality control of the product.
Packaging: I love that these are individually wrapped within the resealable zipper bag. This is much better than other low calorie treats (such as Chocorite or Smartcakes) that are wrapped in packages of 2. Plus, the packaging is secure enough that I did not come across any chocolates that were dried out.
Texture & Composition: Other than the Caramel Pecan Crunch flavor (addressed below), the chocolates are all covered in a smooth chocolate thatís a cross between milk and dark chocolate - itís not bitter at all, but a bit richer than straight milk chocolate. When you bite into these chocolates and look at the cross-section, each chocolate has clear layers of flavor. Generally, thereís a top half of chocolate mixed with the relevant ďcrunchĒ element (pecans, peanuts, cookie pieces, etc.), then a dividing layer of chocolate, followed by a base layer of some kind of caramel element. It looks and tastes very decadent. For some flavors the balance is perfect, and for some one of the two elements outshines the other.
Caramel Crunch - This one is really good. The crunch aspect is more dense than a normal Crunch bar, and thereís a layer of caramel at the bottom. The balance of the two flavors is perfect. If you prefer a Nestle Crunch bar to those with other flavors mixed in, youíll like this. I like other flavors mixed in, so it wasnít my favorite.
Carmel Pecan Crunch - I do not really taste the pecans. The pecans are very finely chopped and kind of outshone by the caramel. The taste of the chocolate reminds me of the Pecan Chocorite candies - itís a bit closer to milk chocolate and not quite as deep/ rich as the chocolate that seems to be used for the other flavors. Overall this candy isnít bad, but I was disappointed. I was expecting the pecan flavor to be my favorite - I generally love pecans (more than peanuts or caramel or cookies), and I generally love anything that combines pecans with chocolate. Sadly, and surprisingly, it was my least favorite of the flavors.
Peanut Cluster - The best flavor. Unlike the pecan flavor, you can taste definitely taste the peanuts. The two layers to this truffle are: (1) a top layer of chocolate with peanuts mixed in, and (2) a base layer of chocolate covering a thin, soft nut layer. Itís hard to describe but delicious!
Cookies & Cream - This is not the traditional cookies & cream flavor I was expecting, but itís pretty darn good. The two layers to this one are (1) A layer of small chocolate crunch pieces at the top, surrounded by chocolate, and (2) a layer of smooth vanilla malt/cookie flavored caramel at the bottom. This one seems to be a bit bigger than the others, but that may be because my batch appeared to have been squished a bit. Either way, this is my second favorite flavor.
Chocolate Caramel - Honestly, I was not expecting to like this one as much as I did. I like caramel, but since the other chocolates have caramel plus an additional element, I thought Iíd prefer that to the simplicity of this one. However, the caramel in this one is sufficiently strong to keep the candy interesting. Delicious.
In sum, these chocolates are fantastic for chocoholics watching their calorie or sugar intake. The only negatives are that these chocolate are difficult to find and very expensive - about 60-65 cents per piece, without including shipping. If I could buy them locally or find them at a discount however, Iíd eat them every day forever.
If youíre thinking of trying them, Iíd recommend trying all flavors (assuming you like nuts and caramel) - you may have a different favorite than you expect. My favorite is the Peanut Cluster, but Iíll also keep a few of the Cookies & Cream flavor on hand.
