Vertigo Candy & Chocolate Flavored Pops
(1 pop: 80 calories, 3g fat, 10mg sodium, 14g carbs, 0g fiber, 11g sugars, 0g protein)
If they gave out awards for the most innovative candy snacks under the sun (and how come they don't?), we're pretty sure that these pops would win SOMETHING! Picture this (or just look at the photo if you have a really bad imagination): One side is a swirly mix of chocolate and a complimentary flavor in classic lollipop form; the other is a solid hunk of chocolate! Genius!
We've been paying close attention, and we've discovered that men and women tend to devour these sweets in drastically different ways. The guys usually polish off the chocolate side first, while the women savor each side simultaneously (it's 100% true—buy a box, and see for yourself!).
Ready to hear about the flavor combos? There's Chocolate Caramel (very good), Chocolate Cookies & Cream (extremely good), and Chocolate Strawberry (head-explodingly good!). And when it comes to chocolate candy that lasts and lasts (unless you chomp it to bits immediately, like our friend Pete did), you really can't beat the 80-calorie, 3-fat-gram stats on this pop.
AND…we've just received breaking news on this Breaking Chew! Come holiday-time (just after Halloween), these pops will be available in Chocolate Mint, too. In the meantime, stock up on the other flavors. They're perfect for tossing in your purse or pocket for a portable solution for snack attacks. In fact, we often sneak 'em into movie theaters (shhhh…don't tell), where we've found they last far longer into the storyline than your average gone-in-a-flash movie snack! Snap these suckers up ASAP; that's an HG order!
HG Tip! Don't leave these pops in your glove compartment, or anywhere else they might be exposed to high temperatures. They melt easily, and when that happens, it is TOO sad.
