Weight Watchers Smart Ones
Chocolate Fudge Brownie Sundae
A low fat ice cream treat review

Did you know that Weight Watchers low fat sundaes now come in four packs? I didn't, but I do now. It's been awhile since I tried the chocolate chip cookie dough sundae and the peanut butter cup sundae at the end of 2010, so I was kind of glad to see the untested Chocolate Fudge Brownie Sundae 4 pack below (hmmm, it now clocks in at 4 PointsPlus value as opposed to the old 3 Points value of the other two... uggg, and now there's a PointsPlus 2012)

nothing too crazy, just a little 140 calorie pyramid

I don't usually do a side view too, but in case you want to know what to look for

It's decent looking though I can't tell if the brownie bits are cocoa dusted or freezer burned.
Didn't these cups use to be bigger?
I think they just tweaked the packaging so that they could fit 4 in a sleeve.

A good representative shot of the crumbly uneven base.
Yes the low fat ice cream is bright white, but that's not a shock.

Before we even dig in, I should mention the serving directions. Either you microwave it or let it melt for five minutes. Since I frown upon cooking in plastic, I ate half immediately and the other half after five minutes. They were right, let it melt. The components need to loosen up so that your bites are a mix of everything.

Overall, this ain't terrible. The secret is to remember it's a lightweight treat and to eat it as such. Get your spoon, take a small scoop of all three ingredients, and it's not bad. Like the other sundaes, the key is the brownie bit base. It does a good job of masking everything and confusing your brain into thinking you are getting a decent treat. My biggest complaint here is that the fudge smells weird. We'll call it a cheap fudge smell shall we say. Other than that, I got nothing. It does what it advertises, so who am I to complain?

Verdict?  Hard to complain at 140 calories
Buy Again?  Doesn't hurt to keep these around
