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.

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?

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.

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!

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.

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.
