Stop it. I know like half of you rolled your eyes when you saw that I was reviewing a lighter frozen dessert , but before you make that “psshh” and close your window, I’ve got news for your smug asses: low cal does not always mean artificial, and all-natural is not synonymous with tasteless. Oh, and being fat is only fashionable in third world countries.
Now, the malnourished in sweatpants look isn’t fashionable anywhere*, so I won’t personally be replacing too much of my frozen fare with these, but for those of you looking to save a few cals these aren’t a bad option at $4.50 for a box of 4.
Oranges Cream – started out tangier than I expected, but died off pretty quickly. It made me think watered down Flintstones push up** – which is more pleasant than it sounds. The thin chocolate coating is definitely the stronger flavor, its on the dark end of bittersweet, which makes sense given the amount of sugar.
Strawberry – the base is very similar to the Arctic Zero strawberry pints, both in flavor and consistency. The thin chocolate shell is again the overwhelming flavor.
I would have preferred a sweeter chocolate coating, and stronger flavor from the fauxcream itself, but liked them enough that I would try the other varieties.
The arctic zero pints still get my vote for the best of the ultra-low cal frozen desserts, but if you’re looking for a darker chocolate fix as well these are worth a shot. They’re not so tasty as to have you running the risk of taking the box down in a sitting, but given the nutrition and ingredient profiles, its not so much an issue if you do.
