Friday's Featured Product!

As you know I am up for trying new products especially desert products, but I always go into it skeptical.  Since I am not one who likes anything that taste "diet" I a very picky about snacks and deserts that are labeled that way. Not to long ago after getting one of my favorite magazines in the mail I sat down and began ingesting all things pop culture.  Then I came across an add for a new line of Skinny Cow ice cream cups. A few minutes later my boyfriend called me saying he was stopping by the grocery store on the way home, is there anything I needed? I paused for a second than described the delicious looking ice cream cups I was looking at to him in great detail hoping he would be able to find them. 

They came in 5 different flavors Dulce de Leche, Caramel Cone, Strawberry Cheesecake, Chocolate Fudge Brownie & Cookies N' Cream.  Not wanting to seem piggish I listed the three flavors I was most eager to try. Dulce de Leche, Caramel Cone & Cookies N' Cream. 

They come in at 2 and 3 WW points each depending on the flavor so I was skeptical as to how good they would actually taste especially the Dulce de Leche.. WOW was i surprised.  I can now tell you my freezer is stocked at all times with these flavors.  I have yet to try the other two yet.

First I tried the Dulce de Leche, it was so sweet and creamy and has ample amounts of caramel swirled into it.  When I opened it up I saw the caramel peeking through on top and thought that you get just a single blob, but i was pleasantly surprised to find it swirled all the way through. WW 2 Points

Next (yes the same night) I tried the Cookies N' Cream.  I wasn't expecting much since I had tried other "low fat" or "diet" versions of Cookies N Cream ice cream and have not been impressed at all.  Once again I was pleasantly surprised I was very creamy and tasty! You could taste the sweet vanilla ice cream and all the yummy cookie pieces (not specs) It didn't taste low in fat at all. WW 2 Points

I waited till the next night to try the third flavor Caramel Cone, by this point I wasn't expecting anything but greatness from that first bite and it delivered. It's a sweet vanilla ice cream with generous amounts of caramel swirled all around (like the Dulce de Leche) & has crunchy chocolate coated pieces of waffle cone mixed throughout. WW 3 Points

I suggest anyone looking for a low fat, low calorie, or low point desert to try these out. Everyone I have had try them, loves them! They make a wonderful sweet treat at the end of the day & they won't undo your day of eating healthy!

I give them 2 YUMS UP!


  1. What a great find! I've seen the Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches at my local grocery store, but at $7 or $8 for such bland looking treats I've always passed. These ones may be worth the 'investment'! :P

  2. My husband likes ice cream every night. I think I will pick up some of these the next time I'm shopping. Thanks for the great review.
