Snack attack? You could indulge your need to nibble with plum chocolate bits. Each serving packs a big dose of natural antioxidants and only 6 grams of fat and 120 calories.

Hmmm...they just might be the guilt-free solution to your snacking dilemma.

Nutritious yes, but could they satisfy a dark chocolate craving?

Could they achieve a perfect balance between delicious and healthy?

That's what I needed to know.

What are Plum Chocolate Bits?

Small pieces of dried plum covered in dark chocolate.

Wait a minute, isn't that just a clever way to disguise prunes? Well, yes it is.

It fooled me, never before had a prune passed my lips. Had I realized what they were, I probably wouldn't have tried them.

No wonder the word prune isn't on the package.

So think of them as dried fruit dipped in chocolate, if that helps.

What's the name of the product that could trick me into eating prunes?

Sunsweet® PlumSweets™

I came across them while strolling down the dried fruit aisle by mistake.

Once I made eye contact with the dark chocolate peeking out of the bag, they had me.

Then I saw that, according to the package, Sunsweet® PlumSweets™ has an ORAC score of 16,000. That's a ridiculous amount of antioxidants.

A giant dose to help fight those nasty free radicals that bombard your body daily.

But wait there's more. The nutrition facts showed that a serving contains...

  • only 120 calories-50 from fat
  • 6 grams of total fat-only 3 grams saturated
  • no trans fats
  • 2 grams of fiber
  • 19 grams of total carbohydrates-13 grams from sugar
  • 1 gram of protein
  • 4% vitamin A
  • 2% calcium
  • 2% iron

They were stacking up as a healthy choice but could they deliver a satisfying chocolate taste?

Are Plum Chocolate Bits Tasty?

Yes, they're yummy. They taste more like candy than a fruit snack thanks to the dark chocolate coating.

It's so good it almost overpowers the dried plum/prune flavor.

Yep, these bits can satisfy your chocolate craving.

But I do have a couple of minor complaints. The chocolate coating is crumbly and the dried plums tend to stick to your teeth.

But don't let that deter you.

Snacking Dilema Solved?

I think so. Now you don't have to deprive yourself. Snack and stay on track with plum chocolate bits. They're a healthy way to satisfy your chocolate hunger. It'll only cost you 120 calories and 6 grams of fat.

Tasty health benefits of dark chocolate and plums!
