Believe it or not one of the @ChocMission team has decided to go on a diet! Not ideal as a writer for a chocolate website huh!? Well actually it's not so bad, as this is the time of year we get e-mailed and tweeted alot (not counting January!) about our readers wanting healthier chocolate options than say a Snickers Duo. To make sure the member of our team wasn't totally outside of the usual ChocolateMission bubble we set her a task - find the best, diet friendly chocolate snack. The quest began this week with the Kellogg's Special K Chocolate Biscuit Moments.

You can find these Kellogg's Special K Chocolate Biscuit Moments in most UK Supermarkets in and among all the other 10,000 cereal bar products. You'll likely find them in a pack of 5 which should set you back around about £1.00 if you find then on a promotion. The box is instantly recognisable as belonging to the Special K family and the product is displayed relatively accurately on the front and inner foil wrappers.

In hand our immediate thought to these was that they felt very light. A quick check of the back of the wrapper signified these were only 25.0g each and trust us they looked it! The wafer thin biscuits snapped apart easily and were like a halfway house between proper biscuit and airy wafer. Inside the dark coloured filling looked and smelt chocolatey so not all hope was lost that these might be a little hopeless. Unfortunately taste wise they were a little pants. Chocolate flavours were almost non-existent with by far the most dominant aspect of the taste an odd sugary syrup. The biscuit outer portion offered a little more but to be honest we felt very short changed by the whole snack.

Overall this wasn't the best of starts to the new @ChocMission Chocolate Summer Slimmers challenge. Yes we have named it that now :) These simply didn't tick any of the boxes we wanted them to. They neither looked amazing, tasted good or fulfilled our rumbling tummies - unfortunately a pure fail all round. With diet friendly chocolate snacks you tend to give a relative amount of slack but these we simply cannot recommend on any basis. Disappointing start to our challenge here but there are better ones to come ... right!?
