I’ll eat a whole pint of ice cream just because I can! {giveaway} (CLOSED)
Rate this post

Well this would never happen. Realistically. I would never sit down with a pint of mint chocolate chip ice cream and eat it in a sitting. Depressed or happy, I would just feel way too guilty afterwards. Have I done it before? Yes. Before I started my healthy living journey. Would I do it now? YES! But only because I don’t have to feel guilty about it anymore — not if I’m eating Arctic Zero apparently. In fact, I can now feel GOOD about eating a pint of ice cream.

I was skeptical when I first saw the product at the store. There is no way in hell a whole pint of ice cream could only be 150 calories. Well, not only that, it also is gluten-free, fat free, all natural and organic, with a low glycemic index, AND it has 14g of protein. WTF? Is this real life?Β Seriously, how is this thing possible? The product has GOT to taste weird. I mean, these claims are just too unreal. So what happens? I get a surprise and my freezer gets stocked with all flavors and two bars. I’m set for life the next few weeks. Arctic Zero team is clearly very confident in their product which lessened my sense of skepticism slightly. Now all I could do was try it out.

First dilemma of the day: which flavor should I try first? There are so many choices: chocolate, chocolate peanut butter, coffee, cookies & cream, mint chocolate cookie, strawberry, vanilla maple, and seasonal pumpkin. As well as chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, and orange bars! So obviously, I went and tried them all before posting this review. I have to make sure my opinions are complete, ya dig πŸ˜‰

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!

Wouldn’t you like to try some of this frozen goodness for yourself? I bet you would. And you can! If you are the lucky chosen comment in this giveaway you will get everything that I have received as well. Namely:

  1. One pint of each of the Arctic Zero flavors: chocolate, chocolate peanut butter, coffee, cookies & cream, mint chocolate cookie, strawberry, vanilla maple, and seasonal pumpkin. Β – 8 pints total
