Oooh Ahhh -- It's Summer!

It's hot, very hot. So hot I think I might melt, and it's not even the peak of the summer. I'm sitting here under the a/c after spending a mere 40 minutes outside. Wasn't it just winter? Yes.. yes it was. I fell asleep, and woke up.. Now it's summer. Anyway, I know we're all looking for better ways to cool off in this heat. Have you ever picked up a box of ice cream sandwiches, or fruit pops only to see the fat and sugar content? I know! It just makes you put the box back in its place deep in the freezer. I want to enjoy a treat, and cool off in this heat.. and yes, I've discovered a new favorite.

Firstly, I received a coupon for a free box of Yogurt Smoothie bars from Kroger (haven't received it yet, so I decided to just go buy them myself). Firstly, I love popsicles.. especially when they're smooth and have a great flavor. Strawberry banana is just so good, and doesn't taste like a 'diet' food. It tastes like the real deal! I can't believe it. At 50 calories a bar, I don't feel like I'm consuming a whole meals worth of calories and fat.

I actually tried the guilt-free ice cream sandwiches too. I didn't realise I had purchased the reduced fat variety. I was so disappointed at first when I saw my mistake. Most of these types of ice cream are so bland and boring. I was surprised that the ice cream had a smooth taste, no weird fakey fake sugar after taste. The chocolate sandwich part, was a good balance of chocolate to the ice cream.

Overall- Yes, I'd recommend these to a friend. Otherwise I wouldn't post about it here. I want to fill everyone in on these wonderful treats! Definitely a 5 star set of products from what I've tried so far. Can't wait to see what else is on those freezer shelves when I hit the store again today!

Disclaimer: I am receiving a coupon from BzzAgent for these Kroger frozen guilt-free treats. I only want to share the best of the best so that you don't waste your time buying products you can't or won't enjoy!
