Jell-O Dark Chocolate Decadence Mousse Temptations

It’s been forever since I’ve done a good old fashion Food Find. Now that I’m getting comfortable in my new home I feel I can spend a little more time grocery shopping and stocking (I’m very much a buy in bulk stock-er type of shopper so the whole temporary living situation for that last 2 months really crimped my style).

Just in case you were wondering, Food Finds are products that just happen to catch my attention while shopping. They aren’t paid reviews (which I don’t do) or products that companies send me to try. I post them as Product Reviews. It’s been so long I thought I’d take a minute to clarify.

Anyway.. let me get to this 1 point chocolate cup from heaven!

Can you tell I liked it? It was the perfect ending to my lunch today. I packed some leftover Dried Herb and Yogurt Marinated Pork

…and one of these cups. It was perfect, like my own little TV dinner. I love the idea of having a sweet bite after a savory meal. And it’s even better if the sweet bite is only 60 calories!

The texture was super light and airy. To be honest I’m not sure what traditional mousse is "suppose" to taste like but I don’t care. This totally hit the spot for me and was a nice change from original sugar free pudding cups.

There are two other flavors, Caramel Crème and Chocolate Indulgence. Has anyone else tried them?

Oh! and I can’t find them on the official jell-o site so I’m guessing they are pretty new.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    As far as I know they pretty much JUST came out, and I have yet to see them in any of my stores! But I really wanna try them, so I’m keeping my eye out.

    I’ve tried them! I liked them well enough but low cal chocolate stuff always tastes salty to me for some reason. I liked the Yoplait Delights Lemon Torte parfait (new item as well) better. I think that’s what they were called anyway. It tasted like lemon icebox pie to me!

    Glad you enjoyed a new food find!

    I’ve tried them, and they’re very good. They don’t even taste “low calorie.” I couldn’t find the dark chocolate flavor so I settled for the chocolate indulgence.

    Looking forward to trying them but I am even more so looking forward to trying that lunch of yours! I am off to GLB to find it.

    I saw an ad for these and they looked delish. Glad to hear they are. I will have to pick some up next trip to the grocery store.

    I’ve tried the Caramel Creme flavor- LOVED it! I couldn’t believe how good it was for 60 calories!

    Roni,

    What kind of to-go containers are those?

    roni

    September 29, 2009

    So funny. I’ve gotten more questions on that that anything. lol

    They are recycled “to go” containers from a local restaurant. I get them from a Japanese place and an Italian place up the street. The quality is so good! I just run them through my dishwasher and reuse until they get so deformed the tops won’t go on any longer.

    OH MY!! I’ve tried the Chocolate Indulgence! Oh wow! They are fantastic! I don’t know what “real mousse” texture is supposed to be like either, but if you have a chocolate craving, these hit the spot! Last night I had one with a dollop of FF cool whip on top, and it was like the most decadent desert! Great food find for sure!!

    I wish I liked sugar free stuff! I love mousse.

    LOVE these, I’ve tried the dark and the caramel creme-which tastes a lot like dulce de leche, the reason I gained like 15 lbs living in Buenos Aires in ’99 ;)

    I think they’re even better frozen…they stay smooth just like ice cream.

    lainb – TOTALLY! Thanks for the idea!!

    I just had the Dark Chocolate and it is so good. Can’t wait to try the other 2 flavors.

    Found the Sugar Free Chocolate Mousse about a week ago at Pak ‘n Save (owned by Safeway). It is in the same size container as the S/F puddings, has the same caloric (60 cal) and Protein (1g) content, but is lighter in weight and has a higher fat content. It is really awesome. I think I’ll stick with that instead of the puddings from now on. Perfectly rich and light at the same time….doesn’t lose any flavor from the non-sugar free types. It will be a big hit once it hits all of the stores……

    Do any of you remember Jello’s Whip ‘n Chill? These new mousse flavers are just like Whip ‘n Chill. Wonderful and only 60 calories. Love that!!!!!

    Just so you know, Jello has a $1.25 coupon for the Mousse right now on their site. I am going to try it for the first time. My taste buds can’t wait !!! You will find it at KraftFirstTaste.com Enjoy

    Just so we’re clear, this is a sugar free dessert, and although one cup is only 60 calories for just over 2 ounces which is reasonable, half of the calories are from fat. That said, when I ran out of my first 3 packages I had to run all over town for a week to find a Safeway that had more of them. They only had 2 chocolate mousses left and about 8 of the creme caramels. I took 2 of the mousses and 6 of the caramels in case any of you are from Oakland and were wondering why there were only 2 of the creme caramels left :-)
    Seriously, Lucky had not even heard of them nor received any of them, and the Safeways said that they were hard to get. I guess they are revving up production slowly and taking a while to get used to the demand. Clearly Jello has a major hit on its hands! I usually have one of these a day. Every few days I might pull out one of the regular Jello S/F puddings just as contract, but as a favorite for me the chocolate mousse wins hands-down.

    oops, that should “contrast”, not “contract” in the last sentence :0

    Found these in the dairy section of Walmart — all flavors. Loved them!

    I was really hoping to love this item, but I guess I’m the only person who cannot stand anything about this product! I’ll stick with the puddings and the new Yoplait parfaits!

    Michelle – lol I did go back to the pudding cups but I do like these as a variation. If you have more try freezing them!

    OMG, I tried the chocolate indulgence and it’s amazing! I have a very sweet tooth and I’m always watching my weight because I tend to gain weight easily so this is a great find. I can’t wait to buy the dark chocolate version since that’s my favorite chocolate! Great product by Jello, congrats! The marketing def worked bc the moment I saw the tv ad I looked for it in the grocery aisle!

    I go crazy for the Lemon Merangue(sp?) Temptations. YUM! 100 calories tho’, however; better than the old standby ice cream or candy bar.
