Nutrisystem 16 Piece Candy Shoppe Collection
I love chocolate & these keep me away from the bad stuff.
Disappointed With Substitutions!!
I love Nutrisystem chocolate, which is why I ordered these treats to supplement my diet plan. I was extremely disappointed to receive 4 substute items that were not even chocolate bars:( I received cookies instead. 1/4 of my collection was substitutions. I agree with the other reviewers that the consumer should be told about substitute items. I would have preferred other variety of chocolate bars as substitutions over cookies. After all, it is called "16 Piece CANDY Shoppe Collection." I want to reorder when my supply is depleted, but I am afraid that my next batch will contain even more disappointing substitute items.
very dissapointed when I received order. Two of the items that were advertised to be in order were not there and were substituted with cookies. Main reason I ordered was because it said it was a Candy assortment and the picture of the Candybar on website was not included--which is the reason I ordered in the first place. Would never ordered if I knew that you just substituted other things in order.If I had been told you were out of certain items --would have canceled.Won't order again--and will think twice before I order other Nutrisystem products.
Don't Want Substitute Items
I was so excited to see the variety in this box. However, three products were not shipped and were substituted with cookies.
To me it satisfys my craving for something sweet at night. i would enjoy it even if I was not on the Nutrisystem program.
Taste Great! Just be careful not to order during the HOT summer months if your delivery truck delivers in the afternoon. If they sit on the hot truck all day they may melt a little. I just love them!
Does not taste like DIET food
I don't follow the nutrisystem diet plan, but I did buy these....and I am happy I did. A good selection of snacks and they all tast good except for the little round drops....they are very bland so I through them both away....but will still buy this again.. The only thing that worries me...is they will melt coming to Georgia. They are yummy for a diet food.
Keep's you from pounding people eating M&M's
As my very high metabolic husband sat down to watch TV with his 34" waist and a 2.5 pound bag of M&M's...well let's just say I was on week two of NS and I really had a fleeting thought of reaching over and giving him a wee whapity' whap...so instead I ordered these.
In my humble opinion when you order your first shipment of NS meals you may as well place this order at the same time. The Peppermint Patty's are wonderful, everything in this box is fantastic in every way. Who loses weight while eating chocolate? I just got my second order today of this item.
I just finished week 5 and am down 12.5 pounds and my hubby is happily munching away unharmed. ;o)
This package has the best combination of sweets for the chocolate lover. If you are eating healthy and crave chocolate-this does NOT taste like diet at all! It's wonderful! and it satifies the cravings! I had gained 4 pounds over the holidays-a pound here and there while still eating healthy but allowing those nibbles of holiday bites. Well, I ordered this and a lunch package and I've lost those 4 pounds in 2 weeks! Im telling you this works!
Great Alternative to the Real Thing!
I think that this collection is a great alternative to the real thing. Of course some of them taste better than others. The nougaty caramel one tastes just like a Snickers! I don't really care for the candy coated chocolates--their version of M&Ms--but the others are okay! They do the trick when you want a snack!
The only thing I didn't like was that they were all melted when I got them. I wouldn't suggest ordering them when their is warm weather.
Tastes Like You're Cheating!
My candy shoppe collected arrived melted too, but I was able to salvage some of them by putting them in the freezer to firm up. So you might want to wait until it's cooler to order this. I still gave this five stars because, even melted, frozen and then thawed out again, these chocolate desserts were absolutely delicious! If you love Almond Joy bars, there's a chewy, chocolaty version of that. Snickers? Milky Way? Nestle Crunch? M&Ms? Here are the Nutrisystem versions of all of your favorite sinful, forbidden treats. These, of course, are much lower in fat and calories, and since they have 5 to 8 grams of protein per snack, they are more satisfying. They are chewy and gooey and exactly what I'm craving when I want chocolate. The peanut nougat bar has soft, luscious caramel, and real peanuts. The crunch bar has crisp rice and melt-in-your-mouth milk chocolate. My favorite, the coconut almond bar, tastes of chewy toasted coconut and nuts, covered by creamy chocolate. More than two years ago I lost 26 pounds on the Nutrisystem meal plan and went from a size 8-10 to a size 2. Thanks to Nutrisystem's lessons in eating smart and snacks like these, I have been able to keep off the weight. With these delicious treats, I honestly don't feel the least bit deprived.
Do not order this product if it is summer time. I received mine and it was melted. Customer Service was very helpful but beware it will be melted if you receive it in the summer. Not packaged correctly for shipping in hot weather.
