Enlightened Ice Cream is a new product, they call themselves “The Good For You Ice Cream.” For ice cream the nutritional stats are impressive. Products range from 70-100 calories and 7-9 grams of protein. For someone who has had weight loss surgery this is a nice treat and adds a little protein to their daily count. They are also low in sugar and high in fiber. You can either buy ice cream sandwiches in Vanilla Bean or Mint flavors. Or you can get yourself an ice cream bar available in 5 different flavors, Peanut Butter, Fudge, Orange Cream, Coffee, and Toasted Almond.
One box contains 4 bars or sandwiches and costs around $5.50 a box. I do wish more came in the box and that the product was carried in more stores. Since it’s a new product I know we will hopefully be seeing an increase in where they are available. I found the three different kinds I tried to be very tasty but had to drive 30 minutes to nearest store that carried them. I tried Vanilla Bean ice cream sandwich, the Fudge Bar, and the Toasted Almond bar. My favorite of the three was the toasted almond! Not a flavor you see too often so it was a lovely change from the usual flavors of ice cream bars you normally see. I had really wanted to try the peanut butter bar since I’m a huge peanut butter lover but sadly the store didn’t carry that flavor.
I suggest that you have the Enlightened Ice Cream brand in a store near you to buy a box and give them a try for yourself.
I’m giving away a free box to one lucky blog reader. To enter leave a comment on this blog post on why you want to try Enlightened Ice Cream and what flavor appeals to you the most.
