Weight Watchers Red Velvet Crème Cakes

Red Velvet Crème CakesFlashback to my childhoodwalking a block to the Dolly Madison store by my house and spending my allowance on a juice barrel and a package of Zingers. Remember Zingers? The delicious cake, either chocolate or yellow, with a thick layer of frosting and a gooey cream center… that’s what Weight Watchers Red Velvet Crème Cake snacks taste like. These tiny cakes are amazing-a rich red velvet cake with a cream cheese center and a thick layer of frosting. These Weight Watchers snack cakes are only 90 calories and 3 grams of fat per cake and have 4 grams of fiber. They may be tiny, but they have enough flavor to satisfy your sweet tooth without sacrificing calories. Of course because they are cake, my kids had to try them….and they love them! I had to pry the box out of their little hands. So if you love red velvet or remember and loved Zingers, you will love these Weight Watchers Red Velvet Crème Cakes.
