Sometimes you just need a little something sweet for a pick-me-up. Nothing big, just enough to satisfy a sweet craving. Allan Candy, a Canadian company, has just come out with a sweet treat that will do the trick!
Allan's Dessert Bites are soft, chewy candies, wrapped in a creamy or chocolate coating. The flavours are based on four popular desserts - Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake, Apple Pie, Key Lime Pie, and Strawberry Shortcake. The bite-sized candies really do deliver on these flavours, staying pretty true to the real things.
The Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake is my favourite, probably because I love chocolate. I prefer this coating to the yogourty coating on the other flavours, but all taste good.
The serving size listed in the nutritional information is 14 pieces, but I found maybe half of that was enough to satisfy my sweet craving. 8 pieces would come in about 100 calories. This is a nice option for a portion-controlled sweet indulgence. These are gluten free as well, and more flavours may be in the works!
