One of our favorite treats during the summer is ice cream. Really, is there anything better than a nice cold scoop of ice cream on a hot summer day. Thanks to Edy’s Slow Churned Ice Cream I get a treat that’s tasty with less calories than regular ice cream. We received a few coupons to pick up some flavors to try and the big question for me was would my kids like it. Usually if it’s better for them their little sensors go off and they turn away instinctively. Not so with this ice cream. It looked and tasted just like their favorite flavors. Tell me just by looking if you can tell a difference:
The classics of course…Rocky Road, Chocolate Chip and Cookie Dough. It was a race to the finish with only 3 mini cup portions…I made am mental note to go for full size next time. Oh and just so you don’t get confused when you are in the store…if you live East of the Rockies, it is Edy’s brand but if you live West of the Rockies, this ice cream is marketed under the Dreyer’s brand name. They taste the same so make sure you note which one to look for. Not only does Edy’s have great tasting ice cream, as I mentioned it’s a bit better for you. Check out the facts:
Less calories and fat with the same great taste, sign me up. I’ll take one of almost every flavor (not much of a mint or strawberry ice cream girl) thank you. Not only does Edy’s have tasty ice cream to share but they also giving away A Reason To Smile. For every smile uploaded to the Edy’s or Dreyer’s facebook page they are giving to Operation Smile which is a WONDERFUL charity. Here is a little bit more about the initiative Edy’s has going on:
We are enjoying our summer with cool ice cream from Edy’s and now we can do our part to help them help others. I’d say that’s a win/win! Which flavor ice cream is your favorite?
