I’m Declaring my Sweet Independence #hsysimplepleasures

This summer started out rather busy for me. And I found myself starting to get stressed. Okay, this is no way to enjoy my summer. All frazzled and worried about trying to get everything done. I want to enjoy my son’s summer break. Period.

Thanks to Hershey’s, I’m declaring my sweet independence from stress! My declaration is to have a stress-free summer and enjoy chocolate (in moderation, of course) without feeling guilty.

Chocolate makes me feel good. Feeling good means I’m not stressing. See it’s a good thing.

Hershey Simple Pleasures

I recently had the “pleasure” (pun may be intended) of trying Hershey’s new product, Hershey’s Simple Pleasures. I found them simply divine! I was tempted to hide them, but I shared them with my family.  I got to try the Dark Chocolate with Chocolate Creme (my favorite), the Milk Chocolate with Chocolate Creme (my husband’s favorite), and the Milk Chocolate with Vanilla (all of our favorites, including my son).

My family loved them so much that I only got to try a couple of the Milk Chocolate with Vanilla. Oh well, at least I got all the Dark Chocolate for myself. Hey, I’ll take what I can get.

They have a hard chocolate shell, with a creamy center that result in pure decadence. And the best part is Hershey’s Simple Pleasures chocolates have 30 percent less fat than the average leading milk chocolates,  and only 180 calories for six – heaven in your mouth – pieces. So I can have my serving of Hershey’s Simple Pleasures and not stress out that I’m blowing my diet for the day.
