Weight Watchers reps contacted me recently to determine my interest in sampling their Golden Sponge Cakes, and I said, "What? So you think I’m fat?!!" and they didn’t comment so I didn’t press it.
I don’t really want to know what they think of my rear in "these pants", anyway.
Far be it for me to turn down a Twinkie or anything closely resembling one, so I said "Sure."
(And this is where I’m not loving the "honesty police" who lives inside me, because I have to say….) My overall impression? Let’s look at the GOOD things:
- 1 point under Weight Watchers exchange values
- 80 calories, 25 of those fat
- They satisfy a taste for something sweet.
The not-so-good things?
They aren’t Twinkies or Ding-Dongs and there IS a difference (not sure if the extra calories are worth it).
A funny aside: My daughter tried one and liked the way it tingled her tongue. I have no idea what that means, but she thought it was cool, like it was magic or something.
Soooo, if you won’t a low-calorie, low-fat, tongue-tingling snack cake? Go buy Weight Watchers Golden Sponge Cakes TODAY. Tell ’em I sent you (but they’ll have no idea who I am) :).
I’ve wanted to try those. I LOVE their lemon cakes! The muffins are pretty good too!
I think my reaction would have been exactly yours–You think I’m fat??!! Love it! My mommy-claim-to-fame is that when my oldest daughter was six she asked me, “Mommy, what’s a Twinkie?” 🙂
I haven’t had a Twinkie since I was pregnant with my twins…and it tasted NASTY! Wonder if I’d like them now or not? Hmmm…maybe if I try the Weight Watchers ones and like it, then I’ll think it is good…or if I don’t like it then I’ll just assume all Twinkies are bad? Wonder if I can fool myself??
Honestly girl, this sounds YUCK!! Either just don’t have a real Twinkie or go ahead and go for the real deal. Some things just aren’t worth the substitute.
