"I bet all you people that opt for the convenience have health & weight problems. Stick to whole foods people. Stay away from processed foods. Making food from scratch doesn't take that much more time."

"This is good, only I melted dark choc. in place of cocoa. I agree about getting away from convience foods, thats where alot of our health problems come from, our bodies were not made to take all those chemicals!"

""Convenient" pudding cups are just full of chemicals and really high in sodium. I think this sounds more like real food! I am going to give it a try tonight."

"This has twice as many calories as Snack Pack. For the 2 grams of fiber, I wouldn't bother making it, just grab a cup of conveince."
