Kroger: Indulgence Without All the Guilt! ~ A Review
I am a sucker for frozen treats. I love ice cream, popsicles, smoothies, ice cream sandwiches.....you name it, I probably like it. However, I don't love all the extra fluff it gives me around the mid section when I indulge in a frozen treat each night. A while back I posted about the awesome Kroger Fruit Bars I found and have been buying them for the family regularly.
I was excited to hear about a new line of treats that are both yummy and calorie friendly. I decided to try Kroger's Yogurt Smoothie Bars because I'm always looking for a yummy smoothie that's easy on the wallet AND on the hips. I also don't want to have to worry about my kids having unhealthy selections for dessert. The yogurt smoothie bars came in strawberry banana and triple berry flavor. I chose to go with the triple berry, at just 100 calories and 1 gram of saturated fat per bar.
Everyone in the family loved these treats, teens and adults alike. They're super creamy with just the perfect balance of sweetness to tartness. The small portion size was a little disappointing, but that's the way most products are going lately. I'm looking forward to buying the Strawberry Banana flavor next. I can't bring myself to pay $5 or so for 6 bars of the Skinny Cow or Weight Watcher's yogurt bars, but these were very reasonably priced and worth the money.
