They’ve Done It Again!
I love to be able to do a positive review and Enlightened is supplying me with good opportunities to do just that. This “No Sugar Added” ice cream bar is delightful. The bar is thick and rich and gives you the feeling of indulgence as soon as you open the package.
It’s hard to go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate in the same product! This ice cream reminds me of Reese’s Cups and that’s a very good thing. Since they contain erythritol and monk fruit extract for zero calorie sweeteners, they are sweet enough to satisfy your ice cream craving but they will not raise your blood sugar and they are not habit forming like sugar sweetened offerings. The peanuty goodness is quite nicely complimented with the small, dark chocolate chips. Because the chocolate chips are dark and rich, the sprinkling in the bar is perfect.
Just like the Mint Keto Collection Enlightened Bars, these bars are creamy as they begin to soften when you eat them. Interestingly enough, they manage to be creamy while staying on the stick. One of my pet peeves with ice cream on a stick is that it falls off. Not so with these Enlightened products. They stay on the stick quite well as they soften on your tongue and last a long time, which is always a good thing.
These bars have 190 calories, 1 gram of Net Carbs (12 total-8 sugar alcohol-3 fiber), 17 grams of fat and 3 grams of protein. They have no added sugars, which is a requirement in ice cream for me. I believe that their wonderful creaminess may come from the coconut oil that you can see in the list of ingredients. Coconut oil is an integral part of my world.
$Price$ and Availability
I bought these scrumptious ice cream bars at Publix for $5.99 for 4 bars . Publix is just one of a group of grocery stores that are nationwide. You should be able to find these bars. At $1.50 each, they are a steal. An unhealthy treat from an ice cream shop will cost you much more initially and then you must add the cost of going to get it and the long-term effects of a sugar addiction. No Sugar Added treats like this can save you a world of hurt. They give you a quick fix and also help you break your sugar addiction. If you like ice cream and you want to ditch the addiction, you might want to look for some today.
You might want to read my review of the Mint bars here for a little extra information on the brand overall. David has also reviewed the Vanilla pint here. Overall, we are quite impressed with this brand of “No Sugar Added” ice cream.
