REVIEW: Jell-O Mousse Temptations Dark Chocolate Decadence

For many of us, the month of January represents a new beginning, the start of a new year and a new you. The infamous New Year’s Resolution of losing weight is as American as all-you-can-eat buffets, deep-fried Snickers and funnel cakes. Most resolutions are broken within the first month, because there’s always someone tempting you with pizza, fried chicken, hookers, or whatever you’ve pledged to stop consuming.

To many of us, especially us ladies, chocolate is a huge weakness. Countless times we find ourselves giving into this sweet, sinful confection, and like a kid at chubby camp getting caught with a Twinkie in one hand and a can of whipped cream in the other, we feel guilty after we indulge, and scold ourselves for breaking our resolution for the tenth year in a row.

Jell-O Mousse “Temptations” wants you to feel good about yourself if you need a chocolate fix. At only 60 calories, the Dark Chocolate Decadence promises that this mousse-like treat will satisfy your primal urge for chocolate and cure even the worst possible case of PMS.

Fat chance.

I’m pretty sure Mousse Temptations Dark Chocolate Decadence would make any chocolate-loving woman become an even bigger bitch (admit it ladies, we all are bitches before Aunt Flo comes to town).

It was absolutely horrible. The texture was like that of dry pudding with a bunch of air pumped into it. I’m a big fan of Jell-O and their sugar-free desserts, despite the fact they don’t use Bill Cosby in their commercials anymore, but this product certainly wasn’t decadent and the only thing I was tempted to do was to throw away my unfinished cup, which I did.

Even though it’s low in calories, it’s unbearable to eat. Just because it says it’s chocolate doesn’t mean that it’s good, and this “treat” is the crown jewel of deception. However, what can you expect from something that has less calories than one of those miniscule 100 calorie packs that wouldn’t even satisfy a tsetse fly or Mary-Kate Olsen?

If you want to be a little naughty without breaking your resolution, maybe it would be best if you have five M&M’s or just one Hershey’s Miniature. It’s not an entire bag, or a King Size bar, but these choices are much better than having a Jell-O Mousse Temptation.

  1. I definitely do NOT agree with this review, because Mousse temptations are DELICIOUS. I’m eating one right now! Maybe the texture is not great, but mix it up a little and it becomes smoother. The taste is amazing to me, and it’s only 60 calories and completely sugar free. Reading the comments, I realized something. I realized that this Jello pudding is like the song “Fireflies”, by Owl City. Some people absolutely hate it, while some people totalLy LOVE it (I am on the this side of course). There is just no ‘in between’. That is excatly how it is for this dark chocolate pudding. No one says it’s ‘okay’.

  2. I just tried the dark choc mousse and it tasted terrible. I figured there had to be a mistake because I love dark chocolate and every kind of mousse. I tried another cup and sure enough, still sucked. I’m not a newbie to low fat, sugar free or “diet” desserts either and it still was awful.
