We had quite a gang here for Christmas with my parents visiting, my oldest son over and my second son home from college. At one point, we were all in the mood for ice cream, so I pulled some Weight Watchers ice cream bars out of the freezer. I could tell by the looks on everyone’s faces that they were thinking at first, “Weight Watchers ice cream? That can’t taste as good as the ‘real’ thing!” But then they all took a bite and started raving about it! “This is really from Weight Watchers?!” They couldn’t believe it. “This is SO good!” I kept hearing that reaction over and over again.
My parents have been trying to stick to a diet, so they were thrilled to read that the Weight Watchers Chocolate Dipped Strawberry ice cream bar was only 100 calories! Made with low fat strawberry ice cream with a strawberry swirl dipped in a milk chocolate flavored coating, it was absolutely scrumptious. My dad said he was going to look for it on his next grocery shopping trip! My favorite variety is the Weight Watchers Dark Chocolate Dulce de Leche ice cream bar. It contains low fat dulce de leche flavored ice cream with a caramel swirl dipped in a dark chocolate flavored coating. Yum! It’s just 120 calories, with 4.5 grams of fat, and 0 grams of trans fat. We tried two other varieties of Weight Watchers ice cream bars, and they were all huge hits.
If your New Year’s goal is to pay more attention to what you eat, but you still want to indulge in a delicious ice cream treat now and then, I encourage you to pick up the Weight Watchers ice cream varieties in the blue and white boxes. Your taste buds will think you’re eating a high-calorie snack, but your brain will know better. Our family will definitely be eating more Weight Watchers ice cream in 2012!
