Five Exceptional New Frozen Treats for Your Summer
Ice cream hits in the frozen aisle!
It’s the best time of year for ice cream, and with the Fourth of July right around the corner, we have handpicked our favorite new products in the world of frozen treats and put them together here for you to explore.
Julie's Organic Ice Cream Bar Mixed Berry Chip
Just in time for summer. Julie's has done it again. These ice cream bars are simply delicious. Certified organic with a terrific berry flavor which comes from raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, and elderberry and lemon juice concentrates. The chocolate chips are plentiful and divine. One bar is 120 calories, only 6 grams of fat with 14 grams of carbs of which 12 grams are sugars and 11 grams of added sugars and 2 grams of protein. You will not be disappointed.
Alden's Organic Ice Cream Sandwiches Birthday Cake
I really didn't know what to expect when I took my first bite. Yes it does taste a little like a birthday cake - but more importantly its just a really good ice cream sandwich. The ice cream itself is so rich and smooth. The vanilla wafer is soft and tasty. The sandwich is about an inch thick. Perfect size. And it really does have this purple swirl. One sandwich is 180 calories, 7 grams of fat, 26 grams of carbs with 18 grams of sugars of which 15 grams are added sugars and 3 grams of protein.
Solero Natural Fruit Bar Creamy Coconut
A terrific start to the summer. You can taste the pieces of real coconut and this recipe, with skim milk is delicious. Its also very satisfying and has a great mouthfeel like some of the other coconut bars that are on the market. One bar is just 110 calories, 4 grams of fat, just 25 mg of sodium, 1 gram of protein - but does have 18 grams of sugars...so occasional, not every day.
Graeter's Ice Cream S'mores
You can't get more indulgent or better than this. Graeter's continues to be one of my favorite ice creams! And they still pack a full pint - not like some of those other brands. This s'mores flavor is loaded with real marshmallows, and huge pieces of chocolate. The ice cream flavor is graham cracker. 1/2 a cup, or about 1/4 of the pint, is 290 calories, 27 grams of sugars, 17 grams of fat and 3 grams of protein. So just a little bit please. But that will be oh so satisfying.
Arctic Zero Light Ice Cream Toffee Crunch
I just love how they put the calories count of the entire pint on the front of the label - because you do know there are people who do eat the whole pint. And with this flavor, and terrific bits of toffee, that would be easy. This continues to be one of the best light ice creams on the market. 1/2 cup is just 90 calories, 2 grams of fat (WOW), 80 mg of sodium,11 grams of sugars and 2 grams of protein. Made with skim milk and cane sugar.
