Got Milk?

I stopped at the grocery store and spotted the Yoplait dessert yogurts.
I despise milk, so I must get my calcium intake in other forms.

I normally go for the fruit flavored yogurt,
but after watching the commercials about these things,
(the one with the husband desperately looking in the fridge
after overhearing his wife talk about all the yummy desserts she’s been enjoying
the one where the lady is arguing with the dry cleaner
about taking her clothes in instead of out)
I’m gonna give it a try.

I picked up Boston Cream Pie, Pineapple Upside Down Cake, and Strawberry Shortcake.
Sounds delicious, doesn't it?!

This afternoon’s 3pm snack will be

**Drumroll please**

Boston Cream Pie

My not so technical findings are...

110 calories = 2 weight watchers points
20% Daily Value of each – Vitamin D & Calcium
(I thought those were the same thing?!, go figure)

Plus 15% Phosphorus
(Not sure what that does, but it sounds important)

The Revealing…
I open up the yogurt to find to *my surprise*, that it’s all cream colored
So I’m stirring from the bottom up for some chocolate…
Hoping that it's like those Fruit on the Bottom cups
Nope, None, Nothing
Even though the picture clearly displays chocolate shavings
and top layer of chocolate on the cake

You see?!
Do you feel my disappointment people?

Still stirring…
No chunks, that’s good.

The smelling…
Like a sweet cream
No chocolate smell either

The tasting…
Definitely a custard taste
Followed by a hint of chocolate

How do they do that? I wonder…

Then the Aspertame aftertaste kicks in.

I’d say that this is an enjoyable snack if you like custard.

Although it does leave me yearning for chocolate and an actual cake texture.

Then again for 110 calories, I can't expect much.

Yes, I scraped the container clean.

Not sure I’d buy it again.

But it is better than drinking a glass of milk!
