Mousse Temptations By Jell-O Is My Decadent Pleasure!

PRODUCTS | | September 8, 2009 at 6:09 pm

UPDATE (8/16/2010): See the latest flavor Chocolate Mint Sensation

UPDATE (1/10/2009): See Jello Mousse & Jenny McCarthy’s Your Shape for Wii Party

When I was approached to try the new Jello I was a bit on the skeptic. I know many people are crazy about it but truthfully I come from the old British traditions in South Africa of thinking Jello (or Jelly as we call it – we call jelly jam there) as part of a trifle dessert and always make it from scratch. But then I heard mousse and it had my name written all over it. I am a big lover of mousse but we all know mousse has to be done very well or it is plain awful.

Dark Choc Decad 6P

With due reason I was suspicious of how good could a mousse be that was packaged. To make my doubts grow I was also told that this concoction was just 60 calories. I mean, come one, 60 calories on a dessert and that to a mousse? You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure that a mousse has to be creamy, light, fluffy to pass the test. Did Jello make the cut? Shockingly yes! I thought it was an overkill when I saw how well freezerpacked the packs arrived to me in an overnight shipment, but it is totally clear that the temperature control is essentual to quality of the product. So if you buy them at the supermarket, hurry on home, you have decadence to try out!

Choc Indulgence 6-Pack

Mousse Temptations by JELLO comes in three delicious flavors: Caramel Crème, Dark Chocolate Decadence and Chocolate Indulgence.  They’re airy yet rich… and worthy of your “me” time.

Every sugar-free cup is 60 calories each, making this one indulgence you’ll want to share with all of your friends.

Below I’ve included some nutrition information.

Caramel Crème Mousse
Calories: 60; Total Fat: 3g; Sugar: 0g; Protein: 1g; Fiber: 0g

Chocolate Indulgence Mousse
Calories: 60; Total Fat: 3g; Sugar: 0g; Protein: 2g; Fiber: Less than 1g

Dark Chocolate Mousse
Calories: 60; Total Fat: 2.5g; Sugar: 0g; Protein: 2g; Fiber: 1g

Hands down this is a snack to be kept close at hand. My favorite is the dark chocolate decadence, but all are worth a try. The brand-new treat will be available beginning in September 2009 at grocery stores nationwide.

      If you want a strawberry mousse..try La Creme it’s yogurt but really good…not low in calories but it is still very good!

    These look delicious…I will be looking for them! :)

    Awful is the only way you can describe these things. I loved Devils Food, which for some reason was taken off the market. When these new ‘Temptations’ appeared we decided to try since the packaging is tempting and makes you think you’ll get something special. And so we tried… once… and will not be tempted again. Poorly flavored plastic goo and nothing more than that.

      Neisy says:

      I agree. Awful as a mousse, indeed. Instead of throwing my my mousse in the trash, I zap them in the microwave, turning it into a warm delicious pudding. Much Better this way!!

      Les says:

      AWFUL is correct. I could not believe Jello was the creator that produced this chemically tasting play doh dessert. Horrible. I took back the other five and got a refund. Jello really missed the mark, this is NOTHING like mousse…

      Texture was good, Rich chocaltate taste, but a horrible almost formaldehyde/machine oil after taste. Will not be buyting it a seconed time.

    i saw these while shopping today and thought about getting them and decided not to. I was worried that the tiny cup wouldn’t really satisfy the craving, you know.

    The packaging enough makes you want to gooble these up(very appealing). I luv these things and no sugar makes it even better.

    The Caramel is wonderful! Please keep making it, don’t give in to the chocoholics of the world.

    Brian says:

    Amazing, just had them again today…to my surprise one is enough especially when eaten as a snack after lunch, just enough to satisfy but not overfill you.

    Really good. I tried Chocolate Decadence and no artificial sweetener aftertaste. I hate the aftertaste of artificial sweeteners found in Jello’s other lowfat, sugarfree puddings. Made for a wonderful “dessert” after my 4 point lunch. (I’m on WW). Would taste good with a cup of coffee. A rich chocolaty flavor stays on the tongue after it’s eaten. And to think I could have another if I wanted and still stay on plan…but one is enough!

      Joelle says:

      Yes, these are delicious! I tried the chocolate mousse. I dumped it in a bowl and mixed it with fat free cool whip (either frozen or whipped) for an extra special treat. Next i’ll try adding a fresh strawberry or two! YUMYUMM! Oh, and i found it at Target.

    I tried these last week and was pleasantly surprised at how delicious they were. They definitely satisfy the craving for the more fattening, calorie ridden chocalate snacks. They will be a “regular” on my grocery list.

    Luv it! I’ve now tried two of the three. Good news for those of us looking for tasty yet dietetic friendly snacks.

    Mel says:

    I tried the dark chocolate mousse. Not loving it. It’s heavy and sponge-like instead of light. I do love the sugar free pudding. It tastes the same as regular pudding. I am not one of those affected by the sensitivity to artificial sweeteners. I think they need to work more on the mousse to make it less heavy.

    ana says:

    Omg! I saw dark chocolate and mousse and was sold! And then I was in love at the first bite. I also buy the dark chocolate fat free pudding. But now the dark chocolate mousse is my fave !!!! And its just the perfect ending after the meal. It tastes great! I am in love!!

    connie says:

    eating the caramel one as we speak…delicious! satisfies the sweet cravings and at only 60 calories, I don’t have to feel guilty :)

    Have yet to try the other flavors, dark chocolate will be next!

    Katherine says:

    I am super picky when it comes to sugar-free desserts. And I am also a big big fan of chocolate mousse (my mocha mousse is killer in many ways…calories being one). I tried this at the store yesterday then promptly bought a package of the chocolate. I am a big-time overeater and am taking steps to correct this. This is going to be my secret weapon for sweet cravings. It is really good. I don’t think it has a fake or plastic taste whatsoever. It is as good as the real thing as you’re gonna get with sugar-free and pre-packaged. I highly recommend them. And yes, one is enough=)

    Nancy says:

    Not even close to mousse. The consistancy was almost dry. The whipped air pockets burst like the carbonation in soda when you eat it. While the flavor was good, the consistancy was very poor. I will not be buying them again. The regular sugar free pudding is better.

    The dark chocolate is fabulous. It is just enough to fill my mid afternoon sweet cravings and I don’t have to feel guilty enjoying it. I have yet to try the other flavors. Here’s hoping they are as delicious as this one!

    Alisa says:

    Just finished eating Chocolate Indulgence & really liked it. It did not have the aftertaste I have come to expect from most sugar free desserts.

    Looking forward to trying the other flavors.

    JJ says:

    These are SO GOOD! I hope Jello doesn’t stop making them…they’re the perfect snack for my kind of diet. I didn’t even know they were only 60 calories, I thought I was being bad. But then I looked and saw 60 calories/no sugar. Perfect!

  25. 25
    Trappercat says:

    The dark chocolate mousse is awesome. I’m on a lifetime diet, and wheniver I get a need for dark chocolate, I am right to the refrigerator for the best 60 calories I can eat.

    Jenn says:

    I cannot wait to try these! I’m making my husband run to the store as we speak. I’m trying to lose weight and have a major sweet tooth. From reading all this I know that this will be just the thing to satisfy that craving.

    Natalie says:

    OMG. so glad it doesnt have that “artificial sweetener aftertaste” sooooo goood…. 1 WW point! im totally SOLD!

    Lara says:

    These are my favorite snack! I love them! I enjoy a snack after dinner, especially when my kids are having something yummy like ice cream or cookies. Those can be a weakness for me….but not with yummy desserts like this in my fridge!! I wouldn’t have ever guessed these are sugar free! Yum, yum, JELLO!

    Liz says:

    Well, I just finish eating one today, it taste great. It may not taste like mousse, but it’s close and its for people who do not want to feel guilty eating something chocolaty. So I would recomend this, for a desert or those days u just need a bite of chocolate. I like it becuase its only 60 calories and it taste good. If u want reall great mousee, this is not for u, if u want a bite of chocolate and not feel guilty afterwards, I would recomend it. Also remember, just because it’s 60 calories, you do not need to eat the hole pack in one day.

    Sarah says:

    Loved them! Am not normally a pudding/jello person, but had a coupon, so bought a pack to try. Will be buying more in future. Nice and chocalatey, lighter than pudding, no yucky aftertaste from being fat/sugar free.

  33. 33
    Janis says:

    I love thw new jello mousse cups just wish they made a strwberry mousse. So far I have only been able to find the dark chocolate. Not complaining it was good! I got mine at Wal-Mart and paid just alittle over 2.00 for the pack of 6.

  34. 34
    tampa says:

    so goood!!!!! I love them!!! I’m terrible at holding back and have been desperate to find something that can satisfy my cravings and I have found it! I”m not crazy about the caramel one but I love the chocolate and dark chocolate. Thank goodness they made these!!!

    Jessica says:

    Having recently been diagnosed diabetic, I can no longer indulge in the sweet things I once did. Yes, there are sugar-free things available but most have such an awful aftertaste or taste so different from the sugar-filled counterpart that I’m loathe to eat them.

    This, however, was wonderful. Light (perhaps not as light as true mousse but considering it’s pre-packaged, I was impressed), sweet, and without the aftertaste I typically can find in other sugar-free products.

    Now I can finally eat dessert with my family once again, without having to eye their ice cream/pie/whatever with jealousy. In fact, my eight-year-old now keeps trying to eat my dessert in lieu of hers!

    Dawn says:

    Are you all insane??? Sugar free usually means fake manmade sugar!!!! People think the fake manmade stuff is better for you…..HELLO WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!! Between the two evils, sugar vs fake sugar regular sugar is a win win win. All that fake stuff is not safe to be putting into your body!!!!!

    kathy says:

    They suck, I mean really suck, there is no way that I thought I was eating chocolate, my dog wouldn’t eat this stuff. It tasted like dried milk and air, bad, really bad!! I wish I had not spent money on this!!

    Anyone who doesn’t love these is a food snob. Best low-calorie dessert I have every tried, although I admit there is a temptation to eat three at a time. But still only 180 calories.

    My family bought the caramel ones and they were not bad but i think i would like chocolate a lot better.

    Valerie says:

    If you want really great mousse – go home and make your own, or go to a restaurant. You’re not going to get a fabulous mousse in a plastic cup at the supermarket, and surely to goodness you didn’t need me to tell you that! No, they’re not real mousse – but they’re pretty close, considering.

    These are, in a word, delightful. I’m not a fan of packaged chocolate pudding as it tends to be a bit slimy and bland. I love the velvety texture and consistency of these, and the taste is exactly what I need for a chocolate craving that won’t be denied. Chocolate pudding doesn’t do that for me; for some reason, this does, and I’m in love with them.

    Karin says:

    I thought it looked good, but I don’t buy anything with sucralose. Not only can I taste it, I also get headaches from sucralose (aka Splenda). I make a point to read the ingredients if the package states “fewer calories” or less sugar” because that usually mans an artificial sweetener has been used. Is the Mousse made with real sugar but just less of it?

  59. 59
    Chris P. says:

    WOW. I was totally skeptical about this product, but a recent coupon & on sale at my supermarket gave me the opportunity to try the Choc Decadence. These are really good. I love the taste, texture, and CANNOT believe they are sugar free. I will definitely be buying more, on sale or not.

    cat says:

    I have been eating these since they came out, I lost alot of weight and like a lil” chocolate every now and then… fits perfect in my diet… PEOPLE that are giving bad reviews, its MOUSSE !!!! its supposed to be lite and airy ” 60 calories” sugar free ” I am always satisfied with 1 … we’ll sometimes i have eaten 2 at a time… still only 120 cal. They are great. Chocolate is my fav.

    CINDY LOU says:

    ABSOLUTELY THE BEST THING I EVER TASTED THAT IS FAT FREE AND SUGAR FREE….THE MOUSSE IS WOW!!!! WHAT CAN I SAY….I AM ON A NEW LIFESTYLE AND EATING REGIMN AND I AM SOOOOO GRATEFUL TO JELLO….TO THINK OF WE WOMEN OUT THERE WHO NEED THEYRE CHOCOLATE!!!THANKS

    Kim says:

    I love these!!! MMMMM!!! I am on a diet and exercise 5 days a week. Sweets have always been my downfall and this helps to curb that sweettooth late night craving. I enjoy all the flavors but I would have to say the chocolate is my favorite.

      Katrina Roberts says:

      My mother and I totally agree with you. Each time we see theses commercials ,I just can’t Imagen what Jello was thinking .what an awful thing to say to a child. And for what (?)a processed snack. Mental ABUSE !!

    JD says:

    Commercials that make threats or inflict fear in children is absolute juvenile. There is no reason for such idiocracy.

  69. 69
    JD says:

    Parents are to protect, not inflict fear into their children. No need to advertise a product, just because you want to influence the product can be for adults as well as children. There are other commercial ideas without the one you are currently using to post fear into a child if they chose to eat the adults/their parents food.

    Nerdizen says:

    I’m humored by the marketing messages so many corporations attempt to subtlety influence our eating decisions by here in the United States. I live some part of the year in South East Asia and India, as a way to detox from all the synthetics and chemicals found in the American diet. When I return to the States, I am astounded at how much money is put into convincing us, that this or that is good for us. Fear marketing is the skeletal-base of so much of marketing nowadays. The closer your food source is to being raw, the more you can taste the essence of what you’re eating and your body will thank you for it. What we here in the United States refer to as whole foods or organic foods, is known in the less developed world as “food.”

I always was able to purchase it at the Bonney Lake Walmart and I haven’t been able to get it since before Christmas 2011. I’m upset as it’s a fantastic, low calorie, sugar free treat!!!!!
