There are plenty of reasons to smile but nothing brings out a smile faster than ice cream on a hot summer day! Edy’s is one of our favorite ice creams and lately, we have become fans of their Slow Churned flavors too.
Well you know how we don’t like anything low-fat in this house. Our philosophy has always been, that we’d rather do without than eat artificially sweetened and low-fat foods. Everyone in this house claim they can taste a difference in the ‘diet’ stuff.
That is…. until we bought Edy’s Slow Churned Light Ice Cream by mistake. Hey, it was on sale and I’m a big sucker for sales. I didn’t notice the label. But guess what? No one noticed until the container was empty! My husband had scraped the bottom of the container and was getting ready to throw it away when he read the label. He was like, “HEY! did you know this stuff is low fat? WTH!”
Needless to say, this is the only low-calorie product that still enters our home because it just tastes too darn good! Yes, it still have that rich and creamy taste just like homemade but it’s half the fat and a third of the calories of regular ice cream!
And as if you need more reason to smile than ice cream, you’ll be glad to know that Dreyer’s/Edy’s Slow Churned Light Ice Cream is giving away free scoops of ice cream as part of their “A Reason to Smile” campaign to support Operation Smile. If the Slow Churned Light Ice Cream makes you or your family smile, capture that in a photo and upload it on the Dreyer’s/Edy’s Facebook page and they will donate $5 to Operation Smile.
Operation Smile is the organization that sponsors reconstructive surgeries for children with cleft palates and other facial deformities. Help spread the smiles!
Disclosure: I received coupons for the ice cream to fascilitate my review, but as I’ve said, we already buy Edy’s Slow Churned ice cream anyway. As a thank you, I will also be receiving a promotional item from Mom Central.
