Ruining My Diet (Happily) With Dove Milk Chocolate and Peanut Butter

I love chocolate. That being said, something I love nearly as much as chocolate is chocolate with peanut butter. I remember buying bags of chocolate peanut butter cups as a kid and slowly devouring an entire bag, portioning out tasty rewards for myself for any accomplishment.

So I never miss a chance to try anything with chocolate and peanut butter in it. So when Mom Central asked if I wanted to try the new Dove Milk Chocolate with Peanut Butter Promises and Singles, I practically drooled on my computer as I typed "yes! yes! please!"

I already love Dove chocolate. It's smooth, it's not too sweet, and it's amazingly rich. Adding peanut butter to it seems like a brilliant idea, right?

The Promises are just like the solid milk chocolate Promises, only filled with a creamy peanut butter center. The peanut butter is far smoother than other chocolate/peanut butter combos - some have almost a gritty feel in the mouth, but this doesn't. I also like that it isn't overly sweet. Don't get me wrong - there's still plenty of sweetness here, but not so much that you feel the need to reach for your toothbrush immediately afterward.

I also like the size of the Dove Promises. They're the perfect size for a quick, small treat in the afternoon without being a calorie overload - only 44 calories a piece. And the taste is rich enough that one or two are often all I need to feel satisfied. The Dove Singles milk chocolate and peanut butter bars are just as good, although often they're a little too much for me for one sitting. Still, it didn't stop them from disappearing quickly in this house.

Official one-word review of Dove's new entry in the chocolate/peanut butter market: YUM!

If you believe chocolate and peanut butter are the perfect pair, you'll love the new Dove Milk Chocolate with Peanut Butter Promises and Singles. Slip a few of the Promises in your purse and have a chocolate/peanut butter mini-vacation whenever the craving hits.

Full disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of DOVE and received samples DOVE Milk Chocolate with Peanut Butter products and a gift certificate to facilitate my review.
