Summer S’Mores for Weight Loss
S’mores may be the quintessential summer treat. It may bring up memories of camping and campfires, long and lazy summer days without school, and carefree time spent with your friends without worrying about what you ate. But now? We say…back to s’mores!
S’mores are high in sugar and calories, hardly making them a good weight loss choice. But that is only if you get the wrong ones. Summer is moving on, and it is about time to make sure you get your seasonal s’mores fix. The BariatricPal Store has top picks – no fire needed.
Why the Caution?
A classic s’more is the opposite of a dieter’s dream. The traditional treat has 280 calories, 31 grams of sugar, and 14 grams of fat. (Those stats are true if you stop at a single s’more). If you are not a camper and tend to get your chocolatey marshmallow graham cracker fix from other treats, consider that:
- S’mores ice cream has 560 calories per cup.
- A s’mores cookie has 10 grams of fat.
- A s’mores milkshake has over 100 grams of sugar.
BariatricPal S’Mores Protein Bars
BariatricPal S’Mores Protein Bars have the chocolate and marshmallow flavors that you demand in s’mores, but without the scary nutritional stats. They have a dark chocolate cookie core layered with gooey marshmallow topping and surrounding with a creamy dark chocolate coating.
You can use them to curb cravings any time, whether it be a late-night snack or a mid-day pick-me-up. With 17 essential vitamins and minerals, BariatricPal S’Mores Protein Bars can also be a nutrient-rich meal replacement. It sure beats running into your nearest scoop shop for a chocolate marshmallow diet disaster.
- 160 calories

They come in boxes of 7 individually-wrapped bars.
Flapjacked S’Mores Mighty Muffins
Any savvy dieter knows that muffins are not the healthy breakfast choice that we all wish they were. A good-sized chocolate muffin can easily have over 500 calories and 50 grams of sugar. Who needs it? Certainly not you, when you can opt for Flapjacked S’Mores Mighty Muffins instead.
Each sweet bite has milk chocolate and marshmallow bits. You can make Flapjacked S’Mores Mighty Muffins in the microwave just by adding water to the muffin cup. With such great taste and convenience, there is no reason to dive into the nearest coffee shop or bakery for a fresh-tasting, delicious breakfast.
- 210 calories
- 20 grams of protein
- 5 grams of fiber
- Probiotics for a healthy gut.
Summer is slipping away, so act quickly to get the tastes of summer and hit your weight loss goals. You can do both with s’mores treats and more at The BariatricPal Store. Can’t wait to see you there!
