When it comes to chocolate, I’m not ashamed to admit that Hershey’s is one of my absolute favorites. Maybe it’s because I grew up in PA, maybe it’s because Hershey’s chocolates were always in my Easter basket each year as a child, or maybe it’s because Hershey’s chocolate is just delicious. DELICIOUS, people!

But being on Weight Watchers has made me severely limit my Hershey’s candy intake. Don’t get me wrong, every now and then, I will indulge in my favorite Hershey’s chocolate selection, but I really wish I could have them more often.

I tried having a bag of the Hershey’s kisses at home and eating just a few, but that’s just asking for trouble. So when Hershey’s came out with their new Simple Pleasures, I was really excited. For just 5 Points, I can eat 6 pieces of portion controlled, individually wrapped chocolates.

They are very rich and satisfying, and after 6 pieces, I feel like I’ve definitely kicked my chocolate craving in the butt.

Hershey’s Simple Pleasures Chocolate Candies

The new Hershey’s Simple Pleasures Chocolates have all the decadence of milk chocolate candy but with 30% less fat, which means fewer Weight Watchers Points.

They come in Milk Chocolate with Milk Chocolate Creme, Dark Chocolate with Chocolate Creme and Milk Chocolate with Vanilla Creme. Yum!!!

If you are a chocolate candy fanatic and need to have some safe Weight Watchers candy options around, Hershey’s Simple Pleasures are the way to go.

  1. Sounds good. I like to have some kind of 1 pts. pls. per piece chocolate around.

  2. wow, I would never waste that many points on chocolate. that’s like a whole meal’s worth of points!

    If I’m gonna have chocolate, it’s gotta be Godiva, or Amish, or European chocolate. It has to be the good stuff to spend points on it.

  4. I tried Dark Chocolate with Chocolate Creme and was disappointed. The outside choc was good but the inside was more like a syrup, like you would get on a sundae.
