Before I get into my taste opinions, let’s say a bit more about the product. Arctic Zero is not an actual ice cream, it is a protein shake in a frozen dessert form (yes, you can have ice cream as a recovery meal – ohmahgawd!). Each pint has less than 150 calories. Pints are also all natural, fat free, gluten free, lactose intolerant friendly, low carb, non-GMO, suitable for type 2 diabetes, kosher, and contain 14g of whey protein concentrate. The chocolate dipped premium bars each have 85 calories per bar; they are also all natural, gluten free, lactose intolerant friendly, are low in sugar, low glycemic, suitable for type 2 diabetes, non-GMO, made with high quality whey protein, kosher, contains fiber, great for kids (no sugar alcohols)! Whoa!
Before eating, make sure you leave the pint out on the counter for a couple minutes to soften it up a little bit. It gets really frozen in the freezer and it’s hard to eat if you take it straight out of the freezer. Once it softens up a bit though, it’s delicious creamy smooth goodness! You don’t have to do that with the bars though, they are ready to eat right out of the freezer. This frozen dessert isn’t very sweet which is perfect for me, I’m not a big fan of ultra sweet desserts. Especially since I like to jazz my ice creams up with more toppings which make them even more sweet. My most frequent choice of toppings range from: cherries, berries, cereal, granola, cinnamon, and sometimes dark chocolate syrup and whipped cream. Although I do love my concoctions, surprisingly, my favorite from the bunch were the bars — especially the chocolate covered strawberry bar! So freaking good and tastes JUST like ice cream!
