GLENDALE, Calif., Sept. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Candy and the words "you can't have" used to be a historical pair, but now, thanks to Skinny Cow®, candy has a new  motto…"yes you can!"  Your lips and hips can rejoice because Skinny Cow has redefined candy with new deliciously guilt-free Skinny Cow Candy.  Actress/Comedian Molly Shannon is telling America candy isn't "bad," Skinny Cow Candy is really good with its very skinny calorie count of no more than 120 calories of pure chocolatey satisfaction.  Join Molly and Skinny Cow Candy in urging dictionary publishers to officially redefine candy!  


"From a former 'Saturday Night Live' night owl, to a mother of two early-risers, to a children's book author, I know a little something about redefinition," said Molly Shannon, actress, comedian, and author.  "I'm thrilled to be helping Skinny Cow bring women proudly back to the candy aisle without having to sacrifice taste and portion size, for a delicious indulgence.  To me, Skinny Cow Candy is a one-of-a-kind, guilt-free chocolate treat!"

Skinny Cow Candy in Four Luscious Flavors:

  • Skinny Cow Dreamy Clusters – bite-sized treats with crunchy crisps, drenched in creamy caramel, and covered in either rich, milk chocolate or decadent dark chocolate
  • Skinny Cow Heavenly Crisp candy bars – delicate wafers layered with either smooth, creamy chocolate or peanut butter filling and drenched in a luscious chocolatey coating

All four Skinny Cow candy flavors are available nationwide with a suggested retail price of $0.99 for single candy bars and $4.29 for a take home box of six.  For additional product or nutritional information, visit
