I'm not sure if these are new to the market, or just new to me? But I wanted to say that they are delicious, and also very conveniently packaged. I love the individual bite size candies so that you aren't forced to eat the entire candy bar at once. However, they are not just miniature sized Butterfingers, like the ones catered around Halloween. These are actually a different snack altogether, with the center resembling the taste of a Butterfinger. These have more of a "Take-5" quality to them. Anyway, thanks to the Nestle company for developing a variation of the classic standby!

COLORADO -- Due to my recent oral surgery, I have to eat soft foods for a few days. I wanted something that I could microwave, yet still enjoy. I bought a package of Lean Cuisine's new fajita-style chicken spring rolls, and I am hooked! They are delicious. Made with white meat Chipotle chicken, corn, black beans, bell peppers and onions. I do not like spicy foods, but they do have a nice hint of spice, just right, not overpowering. They come 3 servings per package, and you get two packages. They are packaged in a little cooking cardboard sleeve. They cook up very nicely in two minutes, and 30 seconds if you are using an 1100 watt microwave oven.
They also have instructions if you are using a 700 watt microwave oven. It makes a nice, quick meal. They are 200 calories, with 7 grams of fat, 2 grams of fiber. If you follow the Weight Watchers new points plus program, they are 5 points per package. I made a side serving of my favorite Botan Calrose rice (Japanese white rice), and I was good to go!!! I bought them at King Soopers. I'm sure they are available at your local grocery store. They also have other spring roll flavors, but so far, I've only tried the fajita-style chicken spring rolls. Give them a try. I think you'll like them just as much as I do! They really are delicious. I ate them plain but add your favorite sauces.
