Review: Hershey's Sticks

I found a new product in Walmart today. Well, new to me; according to their website they've been out for awhile. They're called Hershey's Sticks. Basically they're 60-calorie sticks of chocolate. They come in assorted flavours, but I only found two kinds - Mint and Caramel.

I tried both this evening and quite liked them. The Caramel has liquid caramel in the middle (just like a Caramilk bar) and the mint is just what you'd expect (minty). They're quite thin, too. Thinner than I expected, but I guess it stands to reason because the calories are so low (and there's a reason they're called "sticks"). Regardless, both will do nicely for a low-point chocolate treat.
  • Calories: 60

More info, including the NI for all the different flavours, can be found on Hershey's site. Note that there's an error with the NI for the Mint flavour (the serving size occasionally defaults to 13 pieces). And don't forget to recalculate the points if you eat two of them. The points round up!
