Nestlé's Skinny Cow Ice Cream

גלידות "סקיני קאו" נסטלה
I was really happy to read that  Nestlé Ice Cream started importing the "famous" Skinny Cow Ice Creams to Isreal. I had heard for years from friends back in the US how much they love the taste of this ice cream and the fact that Skinny Cow Ice Creams can be enjoyed without guilt; considering it has a fraction of the calories that most ice creams have. Now that they are also available here I was excited to try it too.

 There are 2 ice cream pops and 3 ice cream sandwiches available here in Israel from the Skinny Cow line; Vanilla Lemon Sorbet Ice Cream Bar (87 calories), Vanilla Strawberry Sorbet Ice Cream Bar (88 calories), Chocolate Ice Cream    Sandwich (129 calories), Mascarpone Ice Cream Sandwich (135 calories)  Cookies & Cream Ice Cream Sandwich (141 calories).

The Cookies & Cream Sandwich was the natural choice for me, seeing as ice cream sandwiches have always been a favorite of mine and cookies & cream ice cream is one of my "go to" flavors, so that’s the one I chose to try.

The photo on the package is ever so slightly deceiving. I sort of expected a wider sandwich filled with more ice cream than it actually had but, in fact that is where my disappointment ended, and on second thought, for a 66 gram sandwich this Skinny Cow Ice Cream was a nice and indulgent size treat.

The round and "decorative" chocolate cookie/biscuit part of the sandwich was chocolaty, soft and chewable. To me it tasted exactly like many full calorie ice cream sandwich cookies tastes and I really enjoyed it.

The ice cream inside was soft and creamy. Had I not known it was reduced fat I never would have guessed! The vanilla ice cream was jam packed with the tiny cookie crumbs, just as cookies & cream ice cream should be.

Bottom Line: In my opinion, everything about this Skinny Cow Cookies & Cream Ice Cream Sandwich was indulgent and enjoyable. What started as an experiment back in 1994 by two entrepreneurs in New Jersey will now become a permanent fixture in my freezer here in Israel. Thank you guys! I will absolutely be trying the other flavors but I have a feeling the Cookies & Cream Sandwich will remain my favorite.

  2. Your very welcome Jennifer and thanks for your kind words...Yeah considering how many ice creams I've reviewed, I'm with you on the fondness for ice cream and more so low calorie/low fat ice creams :)
