I sometimes end up at my mom's house for dinner (just like yesterday's review) and after dinner, because of this blog, I've pre-programmed myself to always require dessert, kind of like a drug addict. Since she's not an obsessive food review blogger, my mom isn't always stocked with the most exotic desserts. On a recent visit though, she was stocked with a giant box of these Healthy Choice Premium Fudge Bars that she picked up at Costco (her favorite place in the world). I don't typically just eat dessert bars as I prefer the exotic stuff that I've reviewed on this blog, but hey, beggars can't be choosers, so I figured that I'd give one of these a shot and also a review. Not sure how many bars are in the box, but I'm sure since it is Costco, the amount of bars are somewhere around the number of one million per box. Anyway, the one bar that I did have was three fluid ounces and 100 calories per bar. This is also sugar free and low fat as well, so it is a healthier choice that hour typical frozen dessert bar.
When you take a look at this bar, there's not a whole lot too this. It's "premium" fudge frozen onto a stick. It looked like fudge, it smelled like fudge, so it was pretty much fudge. That's it. One thing of note that I found appealing was that it wasn't a rock hard kind of fudge and actually seemed pretty soft for a frozen treat. One of the reasons while I've always stayed away from frozen bars is because they were kind of like Tootsie Pops and required forever to get through. The effort was not worth the reward in my opinion.
Since this was a softer version of a frozen bar, it was pretty easy to bit into and I absolutely adored that. What I also adored was that this was full of chocolate fudge flavor and to mock the name a bit, it really did taste like a premium. The fudge wasn't particularly sweet, but it was thick and dense and that made it a lot like some of the fudges that I've had throughout my life (more often that I'd like to admit or remember). Mix that wonderful fudge flavor with the fact that this was a soft frozen treat and it really was a winner.
Buy It or Fly By It? I hate to get so gushy over just a simple frozen treat, but I enjoyed this so much that I give it a strong BUY IT rating. I'm not sure if this is just one of those things that you can get at Costco in quantities of a thousand or if they have them in the regular stores (I've never actually looked), but if you do see a box and want a healthier dessert, you definitely can not go wrong by grabbing a box of these to enjoy.
