I received a coupon for a free box of these Enlightened ice cream bars and figured why not. They are about half the carbs of some other ice cream bars and only 90 calories. I've been trying to limit my carbs to 50 per day which isn't easy but since these are only 18 carbs per ice cream bar, if they were good that would work.
Just one problem...I didn't care for them. When I have ice cream, it's a treat and I expect it to be sweet. I mean that's why most people eat ice cream, right? They're looking for a sweet treat. So I was a little disappointed when I bit into this and it wasn't as sweet as I thought it would be. I was thinking frozen hot cocoa, cool it'll be sweet like hot cocoa is but it wasn't. It's actually a little bitter and whatever chocolate chips they used in this didn't seem very sweet either, just adding to the disappointment.
So while it's lower in carbs and calories...it's not worth buying in my opinion if you're looking for a sweet treat. I had a coupon for a free box but if I had bought them the price was $4.50 per box at the grocery store we purchased them at. I'd rather buy a Klondike bar and only have one a month.
