Weight Watchers Ice Cream

I may have mentioned on here recently that we've "cleaned up" our diets around our house.  This is good for our general health, but it also left us without some of our favorite treats.  By favorite treats, I'm specifically talking ice cream.  I have a HUGE love of ice cream and have a selection of specific brands and types I will buy.  Yes, this is one of those items that generic just doesn't cut it.

Of course, with cleaning up our diets, ice cream had to go.  I hadn't gotten rid of all ice cream, but instead began limiting my intake of it.  In walks Weight Watchers.  I was ask if I would be interested in "trying" the some of Weight Watchers ice cream snacks and treats, I was all over it!

I hadn't had the opportunity (oh, let's face it, inclination) to try Weight Watchers Ice Cream before.  Saying I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement.  The treats were yummy!  Well, the three varieties I tried were super yummy!  I didn't even get to try the Dark Chocolate Dulce de Leche bars.  When I received the treats I put them into the freezer in our basement.  When I went down to try one of the Dark Chocolate bars, the box was there.  However, the box was empty.  I can only assume they were good or Chuck wouldn't have eaten them all.

However, the three varieties I did try were so good!  I especially liked the Strawberry Smoothie bars.  They only have 60 calories and a PointsPlus value of 2 per bar.  Yup, that's per bar.  With those I can have my proverbial cake and eat the smoothie bar too!  All without completely wrecking the lifestyle we are living right now.

Here is some information of the four varieties of Weight Watchers snacks and treats.  Three of the four varieties have under 100 calories.  I mean, this is something you can really treat yourself with!

  • New Weight Watchers Snack Size Ice Cream Sandwiches: Two brand new flavors of Weight Watchers Ice Cream, low fat Vanilla Bean and Dutch Chocolate, have just 80 calories each. The variety pack includes four sandwiches of both flavors with aPointsPlus® value of 2 per sandwich.

  • New Weight Watchers Dark Chocolate Dulcé de Leché Dessert Bars: A highly indulgent ice cream bar featuring low fat dulcé de leché ice cream with a caramel swirl dipped in dark chocolate. Each bar has a PointsPlus value of 3 per bar and 120 calories.

  • New Weight Watchers Strawberry Fruit Bar: A healthier snack option for adults and kids, this bar is made with real fruit and is an excellent source of vitamin C. Plus, this delightfully fruity bar has 15 percent fewer calories and 30 percent less sugar than other national leading brands of fruit bars. Each has 70 calories and a PointsPlusvalue of 2 per bar.

  • Weight Watchers Strawberry Smoothie Bar: A blend of low-fat strawberry frozen yogurt and real strawberries. This bar is a good source of vitamin C and has the creamy goodness of a smoothie with just 60 calories and a PointsPlus value of 2 per bar.

I don't give reviews for things I don't like and I not only liked, but LOVED the bars/sandwiches I was sent to try.  They were super yummy and I will be buying them again!  Especially since they fit right into my lower calorie, eating better routine!

***I received the above mentioned snacks, treats and sandwiches were provided to me at no charge from Weight Watchers and MomSelect.  The opinions are my own and the ice cream is really, really, really yummy!***
