Smart Ones Peanut Butter Cup Sundae Signature Deserts
Posted by on
COLORADO -- I just purchased Weight Watchers Peanut Butter Cup Sundae Signature icecream desert treats, , and they were DELICIOUS! I buy Weight Watcher products all the time. I like them all, because they are convenient, portion controlled and really taste great. You don't have to be on Weight Watchers to enjoy their products. They add a nice balance to good, healthy eating habits. This peanut butter cup sundae has only 170 calories, and 3 grams of fat, per serving. They come two servings per package. I would highly recommend Weight Watcher products to everyone.

Just keep in mind, for those with healtheir appetites, and nothing wrong with that, being as all their products are portioned controlled, they all are single servings, and one serving may not satisfy the occasional sweet tooth binge!

I've had that one as well. You are right, it's pretty good. I also really like the key lime pie from Smart Ones.
Skye on 2010-08-12:
The key lime is fantastic! You know what else are delicious, their chocolate brownies, which are not frozen, but packaged, and can be found where the non-refrigerated Weight Wathcher products are. The brownies taste just like Duncan Hines brownies, that you bake from the package. And they are also a very nice size treat.

I like them, too. Good review. Do they still make the eclairs? Those were so good, but so small.
Skye on 2010-08-12:
OMG Skelly, those egg clairs were delcious. I usually ate them while they were frozen. I couldn't wait to defrost them. I don't know if they still make them, I haven't seen them in quite sometime.
skelly39 on 2010-08-12:
I need to start shopping somewhere else. They don't carry the brownies at my store, and they don't carry chocolate mini-wheats. I would give away my firstborn for a brownie right now.
Skye-I was the same way! 10 seconds or whatever in the microwave was 10 seconds I didn't have to wait before I could eat one.

I have always enjoyed getting peanut butter on one's chocolate.

Is this better than my 'Basher Banana Bonanza'?
Anonymous on 2010-08-12:
I've sampled neither but to answer your question Basher I feel completely confident saying 'Yes'.
goduke on 2010-08-12:
I haven't seen the brownies at my stores, but we do have the eclairs, as well as a brownie sundae.

Smart Ones Fruit Inspirations
Posted by on
Gentle readers, I begin this review with a simple caveat - neither I nor my wife are overweight. In fact I exercise regularly - always have and can move a little giant ladder with ease. My wife has been on a mondo fitness kick for the past couple of years - she's Linda Hamilton "terminator tough."

That being said we do our best to watch our diets, stay away from fatty foods, undercooked hot wings, fast food and the like. At the office where we work, there's not a lot of nearby eateries and it's impractical to get our cars out of the ramp and go get dinner - there's not enough time.

With all that being said, I was packing our lunches today and was digging around in the freezer for a couple of "frozen dinners" I noticed she had purchased. I'm never a fan of these things as the product inside rarely looks like the photo on the box - and sometimes I think I'd rather eat the box than the contents IN it once I microwave it.

By random chance she purchased and I selected a new variety of the Weight Watchers Smart Ones frozen meals. It's called "Fruit Inspirations Cranberry Turkey Medallions." I was a bit leary as I craned it out of the bottom of the work fridge - opened the carton - slit the film on top and then disregarded the directions which are too small to read anyway because I'm too vain to don my 2.00 reading glasses because I don't want to look like a dork in a business that kind of relies on the whole "beautiful people" thing anyway.

I go ahead and poke in 4 minutes on the nuker and wander away to go check up on the membership here and watch a bit of TV. In no time I hear the familiar BEEP, gather myself up and saunter over to the microwave, more curious than hopeful. Surprised, I find that FOR ONCE the stuff on the inside LOOKS like the PHOTO on the outside. I thought to myself - hey this could be good.

At first glance and smell I thought to myself "Self - this is reminiscent of thanksgiving - kind of like when you were a kid..." I settled down in my high powered office chair and auditioned the "Cranberry Turkey Medallions."

"Say now, this ain't half bad....." I thought. Perhaps it's much better than Mom's cooking - as she really couldn't cook very well anyway. The turkey medallions weren't big or abundant - but the cranberry sauce really set them off. Accompanying the turkey was an adequate amount of stuffing along with a vegetable melody *hmmmmmm* of green beans, new potatoes and carrots that really "struck up the band."

I dug in and gobbled it down and even though it's a lo-cal entree I must say it filled me up and knocked down my hunger quite nicely. I'm happy to say I didn't even realize it was "Weight Watchers" and would have to say these Smart Ones frozen entrees are among the better of the frozen dinners in your grocers freezer section.

So did it in fact take me back to my childhood thanksgiving dinner get togethers with my family all sitting around the table? No. However the next time I prepare one of these things I might just have to call up my mom long distance over crystal clear Vonage and tell her I was thinking of her. - pwp

Actually, the 'Smart Ones' entrees can beat down regular (not diet) frozen entrees, in my book. I've eaten some of these, and, they are excellent, especially the lasagna.
Principissa on 2008-02-21:
My friend does Weight Watchers and she's lost almost 53 pounds. Her doctor actually recommended the diet because it is supposedly safe and you don't need to take those horrid pills. I read a bit on it before posting and it mostly consists of points. You get x amount of points per your weight. The diet itself doesn't look bad and it promotes healthy eating and exercise.
MSCANTBEWRONG on 2008-02-21:
I've actually done the weight watcher thing after I had my second child. The food is good, filling, and you will lose weight or maintain if that's what your up for. It really is a way of life, not a diet as the commercial says! :)

Princi, my mom had done WW, in the past. Excellent results, until she got cancer.

Right now, my sister is a big fan of it, and, losing weight, as projected.
DebtorBasher on 2008-02-21:
Sounds good...I'll have to try it...lunch is boring, same old sandwich, FOF...got to get away from the fast foods as well. BTW...what is meant by, "new Potatoes"????
MSCANTBEWRONG on 2008-02-21:
new potatoes are small red potatoes
Principissa on 2008-02-21:
I see the meals all the time in the freezer section, and I think I've seen some kind of cakes or muffins, not sure which. I may buy one of these meals when I go shopping. I always freak because when I think of diet food I think of eating cardboard for some reason.
MSCANTBEWRONG on 2008-02-21:
Principissa,
If you like banana nut bread or blue berry muffins, try those...they are AWESOME!
DebtorBasher on 2008-02-21:
Then why don't they call them "Little Red Potatoes"? I never heard them called New before...that just hit me funny.
MSCANTBEWRONG on 2008-02-21:
I'm with you Basher, I'm from the south so we called them "little red potatoes". I married a northerner and he informed me they were new potatoes...I said well La Dee Freakin Da!! :)
Anonymous on 2008-02-21:
It's kind of like the soda vs. pop thing, DB. Where I'm from they're called "new potatoes."
DebtorBasher on 2008-02-21:
LOL...that's funny, I'm a Northerner and I've never heard them called new...does that make all the other potatoes old?
Principissa on 2008-02-21:
In jersey they call them new potatoes in Kentucky they call them red bliss potatoes. What the heck is the dang difference, it's a potato. They are red potatoes. And they taste awesome when you use them for roasted garlic mashed potatoes!
Anonymous on 2008-02-21:
I call them yummy,especially when I marinate them in olive oil,salt,pepper,garlic,and rosemary....then skewer and grill..

When my wife worked nights she would always take one of these dinners..she loved them.
sarahnkrystal on 2008-02-21:
wonderful review.....I'll have to pick some up next time I go to the store. I am a stay at home mom, but both my kids are in school, and I don't like cooking myself a lunch, so I love frozen foods for that type of thing. (VH)

Pirate, I'm going to call your mother and tell her what you said about her cooking.
DebtorBasher on 2008-02-21:
Those little red potatoes are the best for potato salad.
MSCANTBEWRONG on 2008-02-21:
Yep DB, that's what I use them for.

Frozen meals in a box are yucky.
Anonymous on 2008-02-21:
I like this line also. You might also try the Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers. They are fairly amazing. And the most amazing item in the WW lineup is their fudgecicles. They are better than the high-test ones, by a long shot.
DebtorBasher on 2008-02-22:
Happy...that's because you're supposed to REMOVE the meal from the box and COOK it BEFORE you eat it!
jenjenn on 2008-02-22:
Thanks for the info! I find frozen meals to be disgusting, and am tired of the same 'ol PB&J for lunch, day in and day out! I will give this a try! :)

As always another excellent review courtesy of PiratewithParrot. Of course I voted this masterpiece 'Very Helpful'.

Pirate, while this glowing review on this entree' may be intriging and the feedback as well I just can't see eating a "TV Dinner" and thinking back to the days of Thanksgiving past. Where were you and your family dining those days at a Church Mission? Swanson Foods' "test kitchen?" I'll give you the the (VH) on the strength of the feedback on this post.

Signed Up For Online Weight Points Company On 3/1/11 And Canceled On 3/4/11. They Won't Refund My Money!
Posted by on
Signed up for online diet program with supposedly a free trial period, but of course they asked for my CC info (and got there money asap)! But I decided there website was too complicated with too much looking up foods and points to bother with and on the 4th day canceled but they only want to refund me $5.95 instead of my $53.85!!! They told me I CHECKED THE AGREE TO TERMS BOX, so I KNEW WHAT I WAS CHECKING! But like thousands of other individuals, how many people read every word of the tiny rules???

Wouldn't you think this BIG Weight Loss Company would refund my entire amount????
I wasn't happy with how difficult their website is to get around, searching for allowed foods and recipes. Too much work! Just wanted my money back!

I've never heard of a free trial period with Weight Watchers. I've joined them (and cancelled) countless times and I've never gotten a refund of my monthly fee.

You really should read terms if you are going to check a box that says you read the terms. That's just personal responsibility. It doesn't make sense to say you didn't read what you were signing so you shouldn't be held responsible for what you signed.

Look at it this way, you have access to WW Online for the period of time that you paid for, so why not give it more of a try?
Skye on 2011-03-14:
The site is not that difficult to navigate, but you don't like it, you don't like it.

Free means free, and should never ever require a credit card number.
unhappy999 on 2011-03-14:
People need to think about things BEFORE they sign up. There isn't hardly anything in this world that is free. The free trials are pretty much advertising gimmicks and as many have found out, they are not really free.
canucks1 on 2011-03-14:
IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THEY ARE ONE OF THOSE INTERNET COMPANIES THAT ARE TRICKING PEOPLE WITH A FAKE FREE TRIAL. AND SINCE YOU DIDN'T READ THE FINE PRINT, YOU ARE AT FAULT. BUT IF THEY GAVE A CRAP ABOUT PEOPLE, THEY WOULD NOT BE SO TRICKY! SOUNDS TO ME LIKE THEY ARE A BUNCH OF CROOKS, AND YOU DID THE RIGHT THING BY COMPLAINING ON HERE.

BUYER BEWARE... THAT IS WHY WE ARE ALL ON HERE... SO THANK YOU.

I WILL NOT USE WEIGHT WATCHERS, AND IF YOU DO YOU BETTER BE CAREFUL NOT TO GET SCAMMED!
clutzycook on 2011-03-14:
The "free" that they were referring to was that when you sign up for the online program and pay for 3 months right away, they waive the sign-up fee. I have tried WW in the past where they would give you a week free, but they made it clear that they wanted your CC info up front and unless you canceled before the 7 day trial period ended, they would charge you.

I love WW and their website! I find it easy to use and the message boards are amazing.
