Wishbone Salad Spritzers and South Beach Pudding

I got to try two new offerings yesterday that are noteworthy for those on weight loss programs. Fist one was two additions in the Wishbone salad spritzers line- Honey Mustard and Ranch. Both get big thumbs up from this house ! The Ranch looks, smells and tastes like the normal pourable ranch dressing, but at a modest 2 calories per spray . 12-15 pumps coats a large side salad quite nicely, and delivers all the satisfaction of full fat ranch. The honey mustard is sweet, tangy, satisfying and also 2 calories per spray. Well worth the purchase in my opinion !

Not so good was the new South Beach pudding. 60 calories per serving with 3 grams of fiber, this one qualifies as a zero point food according to Weight Watchers. I tried it, wanting to like it as it was a chocolate pudding parfait. What is not to love about chocolate ??? Sadly, this one had the mouth feel of pudding, but little taste in the way of sweet or chocolate. Other disadvantages are price and it must be stored in the fridge. Personally, I would opt to save the points and choose a Hunt's snack pack, which can be stored on the shelf and counts as a dairy serving, plus a very real chocolate taste. Verdict- South Beach pudding is a real miss.
