Did you guys know that July is National Ice Cream Month? Yep. I knew that because in my house…ice cream is a food group. Ask anyone that really knows me. I’ll give up any meal for a bowl of ice cream. Preferably chocolate ice cream with nuts or sometimes even cereal. People think the cereal thing is kind of strange, but I like the crunch. The thing about ice cream is that it has a lot of calories and fat. Unfortunately, I am always watching my calories so ice cream is not always the best choice for me. If you’ve tried low fat ice cream, you already know that it is almost always missing that creaminess and richness that only full fat ice cream has.
That’s why I have to say that I am in love with the new Breyers Smooth & Dreamy ice cream bars and sandwiches. Thanks to Mom Central, we got the chance to try a box of the Triple Chocolate Chip Bars and ever since then we’ve been hooked! They have become a staple in our home and a weekly addition to our grocery list. The great thing about the Breyers Smooth & Dreamy ice cream bars and sandwiches is that they have 160 calories or less and 4-6 grams of fat per serving. Sorry–the absolute best thing about them is the TASTE. Somehow Breyers has managed to keep the ice cream creamy and decadent–just like it should be–without the guilt! These are available is six flavors, including Chocolate Caramel Brownie, Vanilla Caramel Chip, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Chocolate Covered Strawberry, Vanilla Fudge Brownie, and Triple Chocolate Chip. We’ve tried three of the flavors–Vanilla Caramel Chip, Vanilla Fudge Brownie, and Triple Chocolate Chip. I can vouch for all three of those–YUM!!!! I especially like the Vanilla Caramel Chip and Triple Chocolate Chip because they also have a hint of a crunch that comes from the caramel and chocolate chips!
