Women face "moments of truth" all day long -- times when the temptation for a great-tasting snack are the strongest. These desires often trigger feelings of guilt among women dedicated to meeting their weight-management goals. New Special K® Chocolatey Delight™ cereal -- featuring lightly toasted rice cereal flakes with decadent chocolatey pieces -- provides a delicious, lower-calorie option that satisfies those yearnings for a chocolatey snack.

Great Chocolatey Taste Without the Guilt

Women looking for a way to lose weight without as much sacrifice can replace their evening snack with a bowl of Special K® Chocolatey Delight™ cereal. Research shows by replacing a higher-calorie evening snack with a lower-calorie snack, like a bowl of Special K® Chocolatey Delight™ cereal, women may lose weight. A serving of Special K® Chocolatey Delight™ and a half cup of fat-free milk contains 160 calories, compared to 344 calories in average evening snacks eaten after 6 p.m., according to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.

Another Snacking Solution from Special K®

Women's eating habits can swing dramatically good to bad throughout the day, including during the evening hours, according to an August 2005 study by Insight Research Group for Kellogg Company. New Special K® Chocolatey Delight™ cereal joins an entire line of Special K® products developed to help women stay on track with their weight-management goals.

"We know from talking with women that they want simple tips and tools, not rules, to help them meet their weight-management goals," said Kellogg Company's Alan Gravely, vice president of health and wellness marketing. "Special K® is committed to providing weight-loss solutions that work the way women want them to, by offering real foods, like new Special K® Chocolatey Delight™ cereal, that help them meet their weight-loss goals without feeling deprived."

In addition, Special K® Chocolatey Delight™ is another snack women can enjoy as they participate in the Special K® Challenge -- a weight- management program developed by Special K® that helps women drop up to six pounds in just two weeks.

New Special K® Chocolatey Delight™ cereal will be available in stores nationwide on Jan. 1. Learn more about new Special K® Chocolatey Delight™ cereal by searching for "Special K" at
