I tried Hood Calorie Countdown for the first time a few months ago and am happy to say that it is now a regular item on my Walmart shopping list! Read how I introduced this milk replacement into my family’s healthy diet. Hood Calorie Countdown is a dairy beverage that has 42% fewer calories, 75% less sugar and 67% fewer carbohydrates than milk AND my kids love it! The consistency is smooth and milky; the taste is creamy and delicious. 

Now I use Hood Calorie Countdown daily

First thing first: I add Hood Calorie Countdown in my coffee every morning. The Calorie Countdown Fat Free has replaced my old creamer. Calorie Countdown blends ultra-filtered milk with water, cream and some other ingredients for a delicious and creamy taste with fewer calories, less sugar, and fewer carbohydrates than regular milk. By this simple swap I have saved calories and lessened the sugar in my morning pick me up without sacrificing the taste. 

Secondly, I serve it to my kids. In recipes, with a snack and with their meals. Hood Calorie Countdown has became their go-to dairy drink. Another reason I like Calorie Countdown is because I can happily serve them their chocolate drink request now and not feel like I am ruining their supper. The Reduced Fat Chocolate is only 80 calories per 1 cup serving, which is 56% fewer calories than traditional chocolate milk! And ONLY 3 grams of SUGAR!!!

Always Good, Always Hood

Calorie Countdown comes from Hood, which is a leader in high quality dairy products. For more than 160 years, the name Hood has been synonymous with fresh, quality dairy products that taste great. Also, as I have mentioned before, I think it is great that Calorie Countdown is made with milk from farmers who pledge not to use artificial growth hormones.
