Mousse Temptations by JELL-O: Dark Chocolate Decadence

WOOHOO! There are new Jell-O products out!

Is it sad that this fact may prove to be the highlight of my week? Well, you know what? I don't care! It's not chocolate pudding, it's chocolate mousse!

And I think we all know that mousse is the dessert of the gods. The Jell-O version is also sugar free and comes in at only 60 calories. You know what else? I wouldn't care if it came in at six hundred calories; it is just that good!

Dark Chocolate Decadence has a deep flavor that is best described as raw devil's food cake batter (the other food of the gods). It's a strong cocoa flavor that has a little milky essence to it. Yet, because the dark chocolate holds its own so well, it's nearly impossible to tell that this is a sugar free dessert.

The texture is very light, whipped and airy. It is a bit denser than a true mousse would be...but ignore that. The whipped texture may be the best thing that has ever happened to sugar free dessert. I say that because while I happen to like the "regular" sugar-free chocolate Jell-O pudding, there is difference in the mouthfeel compared to "normal" sugar-sweetened, full fat pudding (the regular is not as creamy, and tends to make your mouth feel a little oily). But all you get with the whipped version is angelic, fluffy happiness.

I liked these so much that I did something I never do over the course of writing a review: I ate two containers in a row! (Which kinda makes the low calorie count a moot point, but I can live with that. I can live very happily with it, thank you very much!)

Just go to the store and get yourself a box right now, then come back here and thank me...I'll wait. Because I know that once you taste it, you won't take long.

This is so good, in fact, that I am bringing back the rating that started it all!:

Hi...great site! I'm gonna look for these! I'm on weight watchers, and I always buy the 60 calorie jello cups.

I freeze them and they taste decent...don't know if you would recommend freezing the mousse ones? would that screw with the texture or make the ingredients separate?

I want to leave work at this very moment to go and get these. It might be more productive for me to do that because I seriously can not concentrate after your description.

I have not tried them frozen... my box did not last long enough to freeze them. But I will make a point of trying that on the next batch.

I think that going to get these cups should be a legitimate work call off excuse. Chocolate Mousse waits for no one.

I was looking for a good link for this product so I could send it to my friends...great website.

This product ROCKS! I was dubious when I spotted it in the grocery store yesterday - I feared it would taste "yogurty" like those Yoplait Whips...but NO, they're actually quite wonderful; texture and taste are not just mousse-like...they ARE mousse!

I'm enjoying one now as a healthy part of my Breakfast of Champions!

I just INHALED the caramel version at my work desk and it's so good that I'm actually thinking of eating another. Unfortunately when I went to the grocery store to stock on work provisions, the chocolate decadence was sold out. The texture and concept reminds me of Yoplait Whips! from a few years ago.
