Have you always wanted a hostess cream-filled cupcake? Did you closely monitor your diet and cut out all the trash (delicious food) to make your abs burst? If so, the thought of a treat is enough to make drool drip from your chin when you see a cupcake filled with cream. Well, get ready to wipe yourself. Now, thanks to the people in the Dough Bar, you can buy healthy cupcakes filled with cream.
I have written several articles about Dough Bar and their product portfolio continues to grow over time and their products become more and more interesting. Her newest creations are the healthy cupcakes filled with cream.
Functional foods continue to set fire to the industry
As mentioned in the first paragraph, some people go on a diet, try to lose weight, bring their abs to the party, and improve their overall health. These people tend to elude all of the delicious treats and desserts that so many Americans take part in every day. Dough Bar is fundamentally changing the way we look at “unhealthy” foods.
With the introduction of their healthy, cream-filled cupcakes, Dough Bar has made these delicious hostess cupcakes, which we have lovingly taken in, a healthy alternative with added protein.
However, there is some bad news. Just like with so many Dough Bar products, these damn healthy cupcakes filled with cream can’t stay in stock. In the usual Dough Bar fashion, these things were sold out QUICKLY. They literally have to be on their email list to be notified when they delete or save the date and time on their phone to remind them when they will be available for sale on their website.
Dough Bar Healthy, cream-filled cupcakes against everyone
It’s Dough Bar healthy cupcakes with cream compared to the world. I have never seen anything like what Dough Bar launched. The coolest thing about this introduction is that when you take it out of the packaging and place it next to the healthy, cream-filled cupcakes of the Dough Bar, hostess cupcakes look identical – except for the small swirl on top of the cupcakes. Admittedly, you apply the cream yourself, but the photos on the product page look exactly like the hostess product.
As previously mentioned, all of these healthy, cream-filled cupcakes are sold out at the time of this writing. However, if you go to their website, you will find more information about this product and its next launch.
You can (if in stock) buy these healthy, cream-filled cupcakes in a 5-pack ($ 18) or a 10-pack ($ 36). I hate to mention this at all, but the (unhealthy) hostess version can be bought for around $ 2.99 for an 8-carat box. But let’s just forget that I mentioned this price comparison.
The nutrients on these cupcakes are pretty good. As expected, the calories are slightly higher than most per cupcake would like to see, but you also need to consider the alternative version and how it is divided.
Each of these healthy, cream-filled cupcakes contains 285 calories, 16 g fat, 25 g carbohydrates, 3 g fiber, 15 g sugar and 12 g protein. Well, the sugar is pretty high, but you would probably eat it as a treat rather than a daily snack. The cupcakes are said to be moist and soft and contain a seeping vanilla cream filling.
What is the real difference between the Dough Bar version and hostess? The biggest difference is the protein content. The hostess version contains only 1 g protein. However, part of the diet is slightly better. Since it contains less protein, the total calories per cupcake with the hostess version are only 160 calories. But if you take into account that Dough Bar contains 11 g more protein, that’s 44 calories right there. The hostess also has 6 g of fat, 26 g of carbohydrates (more than dough bars), 1 g of fiber and 18 g of sugar (more than dough bars).
Another area where there is a noticeable difference is the ingredient list. Hostess has a novel with a list, while Dough Bar has a much narrower list of ingredients with their healthy, cream-filled cupcakes.
Innovation is leading the way
If you can’t understand what Dough Bar is trying to do, you don’t have to be the type who loves to bring healthy alternatives to the market. And strangely enough, I very much doubt that you would read this article if healthy alternatives weren’t of interest to you (either that or you work for hostess and want to see what I say about the comparison).
However, with the introduction of these healthy, cream-filled cupcakes, Dough Bar tells everyone that they are not afraid to bring out something extreme and see how it works. What’s even more impressive is that they’re looking for feedback to make the product even better. At the time of writing this document, they are currently working on the introduction of batch 3 of their healthy, cream-filled cupcakes. Each iteration contains improvements based on consumer feedback. Why aren’t more brands listening to their customers? I mean seriously, they’ll tell you everything they don’t like about the product if brands were just listening!
I appreciate the fact that Dough Bar tries to innovate and create healthy alternatives. Everything from donuts, monkey bread, cinnamon rolls, chocolate rolls and even whoopie pies. Best of all, these products are all available in a variety of delicious flavors so you can make changes all the time. I tap my hat on you, Dough Bar. I hope you continue to innovate and expand the functional food industry
