The Latest in Chocolate: Cocoa Pebbles Treats

This post kicks-off my new blog series, The Latest in Chocolate.

Granted I don't know how new  this product is. It does read "NEW!" on the box. Fred Flinstone's indulging, though, so the Cocoa Pebbles Treat likely originated back in the Stone Age.

I sampled it, for your benefit. Note that one Cocoa Pebbles Bar has only 6 grams of sugar (compared to 24-32 grams of sugar in a cup of standard yogurt), no high fructose corn syrup (compared to an excess of that stuff in most snacks) and only 90 calories. Plus it's gluten free.

Warning: You need a microscope to find it. These things always look bigger on the package. Thus I couldn't stop at one (or two). Regardless, it's a yummy, marshmallowy, chewy and crisp chocolate treat.

Rating: 8 out of 10.

P.S. Post isn't paying me to endorse this product, though they should.


Have a sweet Tuesday, and it's good to be back.

  5. I've bought them for the grandkids and tried them, though I seem to remember thinking they were a little bland. However, I do love Cocoa Pebbles.

  7. They named it after Fred's daughter, right? It looks very good - I think you should treat yourself to one whenever you write a new post.

  12. Post just might pay you or, at least, send you some freebies. Someone at Post probably searches the Internet for any mention of the company & could find your blog. (GM found mine.) Your new blog series might pay off – big time – in chocolate!
    (This post kicked off something in my brain. I’m now saying over and over, "I'm cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs!")

  17. They look good but we haven't had them yet. My daughter and I are total chocoholics but are currently hooked on Lucky Charms bars.

  19. Rice crispy treats with cocoa pebbles instead of rice crispies? WHY HAS NO ONE EVER THOUGHT OF THIS BEFORE?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Never had the treats but i love the cereal. Only one compliant about it.
    THE BOX IS TO SMALL!!

  21. Looking at the package, I would have never bought one. Now that I've read this, I just might try them...

  22. They must be good because Fred is wearing a tie. But, no underwear. Maybe.
    Yabba Dabba Do.

  23. @Yeamie: You may be able to eat Cocoa Pebbles if you became an American, but then you'd have to deal with "The Jersey Shore."
    Better to order them online and stay where it's safe.

  24. Good advice for Yeamie, Al.

    Jerzey, I agree.

    Bones, excellent point.

    Darlene, sure. Join me.

    Laughingmom, lucky charms bars sound good. I've yet to try them.

    Thank you, sweet people.

  25. Sounds yummy. I love Fred. But wasn't Pebbles his daughter? So isn't he in fact, eating her?

    ewww

  26. What a great idea for a new series. I got so excited from the title as I'm a little ashamed to admit how much I love Cocoa Pebbles LOL. I need to look for these treats, I hadn't heard about them.

    Have a great weekend, Robyn! :)
