If you find you are having more fun with the fun-size Halloween candy than your jeans can keep up with, here’s an option: Brownie Bliss.

Weight Watchers introduced the new treat in August. It comes in two flavors, triple chocolate and peanut butter. It’s basically a brownie with a layer of creamy filling or ganache, all covered in a chocolate-flavored coating. The results of a taste test were universal thumbs up.

Calorie-wise, the individually wrapped goodies come in at 80 (chocolate) and 90 (peanut butter) calories each, with the bonus of 2 grams of fiber.

A package of six costs between $3.25 and $3.60, so you can figure about 60 cents each. Look for them in your local grocery store.
