It looks like Skinny Cow’s marketing department took some classes from the Ben & Jerry’s folks. Slimited is almost ingenious while Mmmmocha seems to be a stretch to me. I would’ve gone with Mooocha but that’s just my humble opinion. Though the inclusion of a coffee bean for the ‘o’ is pretty clever in itself.
Now Skinny Cow is all about coming up with “healthier” treats so I don’t see it being fair to compare these to their premium siblings. Coming in at 100 calories and only 2.5 grams of fat, these bars are on the lower calorie end of the dessert spectrum as well.
As for taste, the mocha flavor is on point. It’s not too bold that you get over powered but it’s not too sweet where you think you’re eating some chocolate with a hint of coffee. I actually felt like I was having an iced mocha coffee just in an ice cream bar form. The bar was very creamy and a lot less chewy than the other truffle bars I have had in the past. That could be from me taking time to photograph the bar but it didn’t seem to melt as fast either. The chocolate drizzle on the bar is mainly there for decoration and some added texture. The mild chocolate flavor is easily masked by the mocha base. It provides a little crunch that is highly appreciated and contrasts nicely with the ice cream.
Nice job Skinny Cow on putting out a limited slimited edition product that was well thought out. From the packaging to the bar itself this one is definitely a winner. If you’re a coffee fan, I would definitely give these a try while they last.
Verdict? A pleasant mocha flavored ice cream without all the calories
