30 Calorie Peppermint Chocolate Cappuccino
 
I was at walmart the other day and found these peppermint mocha instant coffee sticks by Nescafe. They are 5 calories each. Today is a DD for me and I was feeling hungry after my lunch of broth, so I put a packet of diet cocoa and one of these coffee packets in a mug and added hot water. Holy cow, this was so good!! It reminded me of a creamy cappuccino drink. And the whole thing was only 30 calories for a large mug.

I am gonna go pick up more of those peppermint mocha sticks before they disappear for the season. :yummy:

julietcc 11-29-2011 06:26 PM

sazzie 11-29-2011 07:20 PM

Oh wow!! That does sound heavenly!! Thanks for posting your find.

dasiey 12-05-2011 06:11 AM

I can't find these any where I've looked at several different stores.

leonak 12-05-2011 06:36 AM

Just where at WM are these? I found the coffee sticks by the coffee - these are the only coffee I buy! But there was no peppermint anything!

Are they maybe where the Xmas stuff is?

julietcc 12-05-2011 07:25 AM

I couldn't find them at WM either :cry: I googled it and couldn't find any 5 calorie sticks to see a picture.

Dottie 12-05-2011 07:36 AM

I can't find them either. I did pick up a bag of starbucks peppermint mocha ground coffee, will try that :)

where did you find this Dottie

Dottie 12-05-2011 07:40 AM

Walmart had it, and Kroger carries their bagged coffees, too.

dasiey 12-05-2011 09:03 AM

Thanks Dottie I am going to krogers right after work.

Sorry I missed the questions...the box is about the size of a deck of cards and it's snowflake blue. Might even have snowflakes on the box, but the box is home now so I can't get it to look at it. I found it, not with the coffees, but on a rack at the end of an aisle...the rack was hanging on the side of the aisle. (They usually sell ketchup and tartar sauce on these kinds of racks, if that helps give you the mental picture.) I think it was at the end of one of the frozen foods aisles. I should have said that first. Sorry, guys. I hope you can find them.

you could also add a drop of peppermint extract to a regular via decaf or the like, :)

These sound so yummy! I just googled it and apparently these are "available now at Walgreens nationwide and at select Walmart and Target stores" according to their info post on their facebook page. No Walmarts near me so I'll be stopping by Walgreens sometime soon to try my luck.

I'm always on the lookout for more low cal and tasty liquid options for my DDs! :clap:

mattsmama 12-05-2011 09:30 AM

If you can't find them, the Coffeemate sugar free peppermint coffee creamer is very good in the diet hot chocolate, too. Although it is 15 calories, it is another option.

dasiey 12-05-2011 10:08 AM

Just found them at wal greens 3.99 a box. kinda high.

How many packets are in one box?

dasiey 12-05-2011 11:11 AM

I'm not sure. My daughter works their And I called her to pick up a box

dasiey 12-05-2011 11:14 AM

ok I googled it and I think 20 of them in a box.

vilanteira 12-05-2011 11:21 AM

20 of them? Ok yeah, I'd still prefer for the price to be a little more reasonable but I'll pick one up and try it, and if it's really good then it might justify splurging more often. :)

I was in meijers and they had the singles but not the flavor i was looking for. And guess what they were on sale for $2.99 I did pick up the vanilla one.
