Remember those elementary school lunches? Everyone had their favorite days – and not so favorite days. When the menu went south there was always the hope that the dessert would come to the rescue. A lunchroom special was always the lunch tray square of pudding. If all else failed there might be a delicious dollop of chocolate or vanilla heaven to save the day.
Fast forward to 2007. You’re hard at work in your cube, or up to your elbows in the kids’ dirty laundry, or studying for an exam. You really need a tasty treat to save the day again, but you’re trying to be healthy. What can you do? Well head to the ‘fridge and grab a Jell-O Sugar Free Chocolate Vanilla Swirl Pudding! You put that rich, creamy mixture of chocolate and vanilla pudding in your mouth and you feel like a kid again. It’s a marriage of flavors made in heaven, with a fullness and thickness that really leaves you satisfied, energized, and feeling like you can make it until chow time.
Serving size is one 106 gram cup, and that will supply you with 60 calories. You’ll also get 1.5 grams of fat, no cholesterol, 180mg of sodium, 2 grams of protein, and 13 grams of carbohydrate. 7 grams of sugar alcohol are included in that carbohydrate count, so the net impact carbs should be somewhere around 9 grams. This also means that you should definitely stick to one and only one cup at a time. This pudding also contains 10 percent of the recommended daily intake of calcium.
