We are an ice cream family. We love our ice cream – though the hubby and Princess Nagger take the cake for being ice-cream-aholics, since they tend to polish off their half-gallon cartons long before I do.
Sometimes in just a matter of days after I’ve done my semi-monthly grocery shopping and gotten them a fresh carton. Yes, because they’re so passionate about their ice cream, I buy each one their very own carton so if they eat it faster than the rest of us (read: me) there’s still some in the freezer should I get the craving. Ahem.
I do have to be careful, though, because if I try to keep up with their fanatical ice cream eating, I tend to overindulge. Thanks to Edy’s (known as Dreyer’s West of the Rocky’s) and their Slow Churned version that has 1/3 fewer calories and 1/2 the fat of regular ice cream, I can give in to my craving.
And with their cute little 5.8 fluid ounce containers, I am less apt to overindulge. Princess Nagger thought they were just the right size – she chose the Cookie Dough, and I opted for the Caramel Delight:
Ten Minutes Later…
It was delicious – so rich and creamy, unless we knew better we never would have guessed it was 1/2 the fat.
Traveling around the country, they will give consumers a free scoop of Slow Churned and capture the smile on their face when they realize the ice cream they are eating has all the flavor, but half the fat. For every “ice cream smile” photo captured at an event or uploaded to the Dreyer’s / Edy’s Facebook page, $5 will be donated to Operation Smile.
The goal is to capture more than 25,000 smiles, which will allow Operation Smile to complete more than 500 reconstructive surgeries on children with cleft palates and other facial deformities. Isn’t that great?
Ten smiles will also be in a Slow Churned print ad, and one will be on a carton of a limited-edition flavor. It could be you!
