If you have a “latte habit” you know how hard it can be on your budget and your waist line.   Skinny Cow from Nestle, known for their tasty low-cal ice cream treats, has now added a line of Skinny Cow Iced Coffee Drinks and Blissful Truffle bars. These lower calorie lattes are fine if you enjoy them, but consider them treats. Consuming an extra120 calories,  here and there will soon show up on the scale!

The coffee drinks are available in three flavours: Mocha Latte, Vanilla Latte, and Creamy Cappuccino. The suggested retail price is $1.99 per bottle and $5.99 per four-pack.

This compares to 80 calories for a 16-ounce Starbucks Skinny Latte made with Starbucks Signature Espresso Roast, Cold nonfat milk, and sugar-free syrup, for about $3.45. Other flavours of Starbuck Skinny Latte Drinks we found on the menu contain 110-180 calories.

Skinny Cow Blissful Truffle Candy Bars are 130 calories apiece. They come in Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate. The .77 oz. bars are sold in packs of six at a suggested retail price between $3.99 and $4.99. These bars are very small and similar in flavour to popular mass market chocolates such as Dove and Bliss.skinnybliss.jpg

Two individually wrapped Godiva Dark Cholate Truffles are 100 calories each. A bag of them costs $12.
