One of my officemates knows I love tea, so she hunted me down to get me to try this today. Ahhhh. Tea.
This tastes like “sweet tea” — that black tea with a lot of sugar/honey dumped into it. If you’ve ever been to the South (or a McDonald’s), you may have had this. It’s definitely not “tea” so much as it is “sugar with a tea flavor.” My coworker (who purchased these) said the candy tasted like “an obnoxious amount of honey.”
I rather like this candy, actually, but not at its calorie/point range. Each candy has 48 calories in it to back this up. It’s 2 Weight Watchers SmartPoints… each. Those are calories/points I could be spending on, for example, Greek yogurt, which would be more filling. This one, for example tastes like tiramisu, which is a faux-coffee instead of a faux-tea, but you get 12 grams of protein instead of just sugar-calories.
However, the nuances of calories in candy are a bit silly, considering it’s candy. No nutritional value should be expected of it. It’s pretty tasty. Tea purists should most likely back away from this, but if you’re a fan of Southern sweet tea, give it a whirl!
