There is something about that sweet, creamy, cold treat that defies the seasons for me. Dig into a big bowl of ice cream in the heart of Winter? Why not?
My only hang up is the guilt. I am trying to lose weight and ice cream is not always so figure friendly. But, Weight Watchers has come out with these four snack-sized ice cream treats to let consumers indulge without blowing their New Year's Resolutions.
I was sent this selection of 4 bars:
Dark Chocolate Raspberry Bars - Dark chocolate covering low-fat raspberry ice cream. The raspberry flavor is decadent and offset by the bitter dark chocolate. I liked the flavor even though raspberry isn't usually a favorite of mine. Only 2 points per bar and only 80 calories.
Chocolate Fudge Bars - These took me back to the bars of my childhood. Rich, smooth chocolate goodness! PointsPlus value of 1 and only 45 calories.
Dark Chocolate Dulce de Leche Bars - These were my stand out favorites! Caramel swirled through a luscious creamy ice cream and dipped in chocolate. Oh, my. They are 3 points and only 120 calories. The highest calorie content of the group, but oh so worth it!
Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Bars - These strawberry ice cream bars are dipped in milk chocolate and are the perfect combination of light and fruity with rich, silken chocolate. These were my second favorite bars. These were worth 3 points and only 100 calories.
I was impressed with the flavor in these bars. They didn't taste like dieter's ice cream or low-calorie ice cream. If you have ever tried reduced calorie treats you probably know what I mean. There was no bad after taste or film in my mouth. It was just an enjoyable ice cream treat minus all the extra calories and guilt. I truly could enjoy every bite or lick and not think about the calories.
There are other flavors I have eyed in my local grocery store. Next I want to try their Divine Triple Chocolate Bars or maybe their Ice Cream Candy Bars. Oh, yeow-za!
