    Not really new, but every year for the past few years I get this pudding at a local orchard when I go strawberry or apple picking. This year they didn't have it and I was so bummed. Then I was looking for dairy free yogurt at my local grocery store and ended up in the pudding section and found it! When you're used to Snack Packs or boxed instant pudding, this stuff tastes luxurious. I suppose this is how pudding should always taste, but I honestly don't know because I've never had good quality (premium?) pudding.

    Make your own pudding. It’s pretty easy and a world of difference in taste. I have never noticed the Echo Farms puddings though.

    If white means white chocolate that would be really good! People who thought white meant white chocolate on Kit Kats and Reeses were made fun of on here for thinking it meant white chocolate so I no longer assume.

    A lot of people think "white" candy means "white chocolate"--so many that there is currently a lawsuit because some people feel mislead that such candies were not actually white chocolate: https://thetakeout.com/white-chocolate-fake-lawsuit-nestle-1838507196

    If someone doesn't know much about chocolate and they see a "white" version of a candy that's normally...well, chocolate flavored at least...then I can see why they'd be confused. I don't think it's fair to make fun of them. I think the marketing is intentionally vague.

    Anyway, that "Hershey's White" bar is not white chocolate. There is small print at the bottom that says "white creme." It is probably something like vanilla flavored vegetable fat.

    Wait... I'm confused. What is the difference between white and white chocolate??

    Candy that’s just marketed as white may be vegetable fat with flavoring. It does not necessarily have any cocoa butter in it. White chocolate is made from cocoa butter, with sugar and milk added.

    Wow, I am embarrassed to say I am one of those people who always thinks white looking things that are normally chocolate is white chocolate, lol. Now I know why ACTUAL white chocolate from a specialty store tastes so much different. I am sure it is more expensive to use actual white chocolate which is why they always use the white "cream".

    I always assumed they were white chocolate too. Specialty store white chocolate is awesome, I used to buy a chunk of white chocolate from the bakery down the street with my allowance. Is it any wonder I'm on MFP as an adult!

    Well, is actual white chocolate even considered true chocolate??

    Nestle's has a new chip product that is called "Simply" There are dark, semi-sweet, and white chocolate chip. The "simply line is just 3-5 ingredients and ALL contain real chocolate, either solids or cocoa butter . There is NO MILK in the white chips.

    The Nestle product is marketed as “white morsels” and its webpage doesn’t use the term “white chocolate” at all. That may be because white chocolate typically does contain milk products. It may also be because white chocolate usually does not contain things like tapioca starch that are in these chips. https://www.verybestbaking.com/products/11991/tollhouse/simply-delicious-white-morsels-by-nestle-toll-house

    Edit: Here are some white chocolate chips that are marketed as such, so folks can see the difference.
    Guittard: https://www.guittard.com/our-chocolate/detail/choc-au-lait-baking-chips (they are called "vanilla" on the website, but also called "white chocolate")
    Valrhona: https://www.valrhona-chocolate.com/white-chocolate-chips.html
    Callebaut: https://www.vanillafoodcompany.ca/Chocolate-White-Chocolate-Callets-Chips-W2NV-p/cal-wh-callets-par.htm

    @apullum you should right a book... haha. Do you have experience working in the chocolate biz?!

    Nope, no professional experience in chocolate. I'm just a chocolate snob :)

    I respect you!

    My chocolate spreadsheet is up to 122 entries now :) In my day job, I'm a professor of things that aren't related to chocolate, but there is always chocolate in my office.

    Found some new brands for you... @apullum

    What?? I don't see anything. Don't leave me hanging when there's chocolate involved!

    https://pumpstreetchocolate.com/collections/all

    https://www.omnomchocolate.com/

    https://www.bovetti.com/fr/

    https://www.amedei.it/

    https://www.cocoaparlor.com/

    Oooh! I’ve seen the last brand, but none of the European ones.

    I'm excited... ordered some of the pump street and bovetti!

    I haven’t had a Fiber One brownie in YEARS... since when did they change the recipe!?! I remember them being 90 calories and mediocre, now they’re 70 calories and a lot sweeter!? I noticed it’s made with erythritol... which I’m obsessed with (hence why I eat so much halo top and enlightened). I got a family size of 18 brownies and they’re all definitely going to be gone by Friday...

    I bought the Great Value fiber brownies a couple days ago and noticed that they're still 90 calories and the the Fiber One brownies are 70, so it's recent enough that Walmart hasn't tried to knock off the new version. I think it happened with the package change in the past 3-6 months some time.

    I think the change was over the summer. From what I read, a lot of people hated the new recipe, so I haven't tried it. If you all like it, I'm more open to trying it, but I wish I could find a single brownie instead of having to buy the box.

    I have had the white snickers when they made them before. I am happy to see they are making them again!

    I noticed them at Target a few months ago, but haven’t purchased them for a long time. Does anyone know if they’ve made them smaller, or just less calories?

    Not new and not a product but I've finally discovered mixing sugar free fat free jello in with greek yogurt.

    My nightly snack for the past 10 years has been SF jello pudding + yogurt or pumpkin. So good!

    Sugar free jello is good mixed in with cottage cheese too.

    I like the idea of fruit loop flavored pop tart if the pastry was fruit loop flavored lol. But it will probably just be the filling. 5nypkcavb0fb.jpeg
