Sweet Freedom: An Ice Cream Review

As Meri over at Our Diabetic Life said, "I blog, therefore I get free stuff!"

I LOVE free stuff.  I LOVE trying new things.  So when I got an email from Blue Bunny asking me to sample and review their new Sweet Freedom Snack Size products, I said.... YES, PLEASE!

Sweets loves her ice cream!  (Yes, that's right.  Sweets eats ice cream.  But that's a blog post for another day.  If you don't know what I'm talking about click here to read Mike's blog post.)

But often, ice cream servings are too much for her to eat.  She is tiny girl with a tiny tummy.  I was so excited to see the size of these snack products!

First, they showed up in this HUGE box filled with dry ice (which was a treat all on it's own)!  There were ice cream cones and ice cream sandwiches!

Sweets immediately wanted to try the ice cream cones.  Blue Bunny describes these as "Vanilla lowfat no sugar added ice cream in a no sugar added cone dipped in a chocolate flavored coating topped with peanuts.  Now in a snack size!  6 cones per box."


The size was perfect!!

Each cone has 120 calories, 6g of fat and 17g of carbs.  There are 2g of dietary fiber and 8g of sugar alcohols. 

I'm really not a fan of sugar alcohols.  I'd prefer to just buy the regular stuff in that size.  But that's my opinion!

We all tried the cones and we all liked them - especially Sweetpea!  She even ate the nuts and she usually does not care for nuts!

We also tried the ice cream sandwiches!

Well, J and I tried them.  Sweets does not like ice cream sandwiches and would not give them a try!

Blue Bunny describes these as "Vanilla or chocolate no sugar added lowfat ice cream between two no sugar added chocolate flavored wafers.  8 sandwiches per box."

Each sandwich has 80 calories and less than 2g of fat.  There are 18g carbs - 2g of dietary fiber and 2g of sugar alcohols.

J did not really care for these.  But he's pretty picky!  I thought that they were good - although I didn't try the chocolate because I don't eat chocolate ice cream.  (Yes, weird...)

You can find out more about these products by visiting Blue Bunny online or on facebook!  You can also read other reviews by Heidi over at D Tales or by Meri at Our Diabetic Life

I LOVE the size of these treats and think they are a great treat option for summer!  You can find them now at your local grocery store!

 Disclaimer:  I received the one box of each of these products free.  Blue Bunny asked me to write a review but all opinions are my own.  I received no other compensation for writing this post!

  2. My college has a handful of ice cream machines on campus, and they all have the Blue Bunny Sweet Freedom vanilla chocolate swirl. They're wonderful! Honestly, I prefer cookie dough ice cream from the Baskin Robbins right off campus, but these are cheaper and there's no guilt attached for me! Also, I hate to admit this, but I've eaten them with a coffee instead of breakfast some mornings when we've run out of milk. Guess what? They kept me stable! For that alone, they're my favorite vending machine snack!

  3. And you didn't call me to come sample them with you??? Just kidding. I love it when I find a "treat" for the kids that comes in a smaller size. Makes us both happy at the same time.
