Ice cream overload!

This post brought to you by Unilever Ice Cream. All opinions are 100% mine.

During the summer I could (if allowed) eat ice cream and popsicles all day long. In fact, if it’s really hot I don’t even like eating. I have been known to eat a few popsicles during the day and call it food. Obviously this is not something that should be done everyday but once in a while it happens.

I was asked to sample some ice cream fro Unilver and I couldn’t turn the offer down. Who is going to say no to free ice cream?

I went to the store to gather six different summertime treats. I’m pretty sure the cashier thought that I either had a house full of kids or I was simply crazy for buying all this ice cream on time.

We sampled six different treats:

Fruttare Strawberry and Milk Bars

Double Caramel Mini-Magnum Ice Cream  Bars

Vanilla Beans Breyers Ice Cream

Chocolate Eclair Good Humor Bars

Popsicle Firecracker Popsicles

Klondike Choco Tacos

I LOVED the Fruttare bars because they were creamy and full of fresh fruit. I have also tried the banana fruit and milk bars and they are equally delicious. The thing I like most about these bars is that they are slightly sweet and taste as thought they were homemade.

The double caramel (holy yum!) mini-Magnum bars are the perfect end of the day treat. They are filled with caramel and since they are mini you don’t feel so guilty for indulging in such a decadent treat. I also really liked the creaminess of the ice cream. Often time in ice cream bars the quality is not there.

We also sampled the Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. This totally reminded me of being a kid. I remember the first time my step-mom brought Breyers home. I was totally intrigued by black flecks of vanilla bean. So good! Even better when covered in chocolate sauce.

Next we sampled the Good Humor bars. I had not had one of these in YEARS! My favorite part is the crunchy topping and the smooth (almost whipped cream like) coating over the ice cream. We picked the chocolate eclair flavor but I’m dying to try the toasted almond flavor as well.

My husband laughed at the popsicles I brought home. I can’t help it. I totally love the firecracker popsicles. They are so fun and I love the flavors. I ended up giving the box (after I indulged in one) to my neighbors because they have two boys and I knew they would LOVE them. They totally did!

Last up is the totally fun ChocoTaco. I had almost forgot about these but when I saw them at the store I knew I had to buy them. Seriously could there be anything more delicious? It’s basically a drumstick in taco form. How is that not a good thing?

    Ahaha, I thought your problem was going to be with the chicory root fiber they add to those since some people who don’t have a lot of fiber in their diet can’t tolerate it (um, gas & diarreah anyone?). I have to be eating pretty healthy in order to include Fiber One bars in my diet, and I’m happy to say they’re a part of it right now! I’m type 1 diabetic and put them in my purse for an emergency blood sugar fix if it gets low. I really love them. My current trick for weight management (actually it’s weight loss right now) is tracking my calories and excercise on It helps me stay on track better than I would on my own and the community keeps me inspired.

    Weird, apparently the comment I left went to spam b/c it’s not showing up. My current strategy for weight management/loss is tracking my calories and excercise at It keeps me on track better than I do on my own and the community keeps me inspired. And I love Fiber One bars, but I actually like the Fiber Plus bars even more. I eat several a week but find I do need to be eating a fiber-ful diet in order for to tolerate all the fiber in them, otherwise…things aren’t so pleasant (um, gas and diarreah anyone?). 🙂

    One thing we do is try to get 4-5 fruits/veggies in before we get home from work. I buy groceries on Sundays so there’s no excuse. Every day my Hubby packs our lunches and puts in 2 apples (cut up), baby carrots, a salad, and something seasonal (right now, 2 clementines). Then when I’m at my desk and hunger hits, I have something healthy nearby.

    For me I have a picture of my at the heaviest posted on my bathroom door with the words “never again” scribbled in sharpie. It’s a reminder for me to not overindulge too much.

    Fitness tip: You have to set aside time for exercise. That is hard to do when you have a busy life, so I get up really early, and walk before the rest of my family gets up. Walking is free , it has been proven to be one of the best forms of exercise and I get to see the sunrise every day.

    Keeping a journal of everything you eat helps. Also, drink your 8 glasses of water.

    The easiest way I manage my weight is to stay focused on my portion control.

    my intake control tip–distract yourself. if you find yourself headed into the kitchen for a not-so-good snack, make a u-turn and busy yourself with something more productive!

    My little weight management trick is to eat a bowl of cereal for dinner if I have a big lunch. I don’t skip meals but don’t need another full one either….

    I’m much more likely to get my workout in the morning than if I save it for the end of the day. It puts me in a better mood too!
