Five ingredients, only wish it was five calories...

This diet is killing me! Ok, not really. I’m really happy that I’ve progressed with my diet, and I’ve been sticking to it for the most part. I’ve now lost over 25lbs and am feeling great. It’s great to see clothes fitting better and sizes going down. Even a brand new pair of jeans I bought just a few weeks ago are already baggy and bigger than they were when I bought them.

Haagen-Dazs
is about to ruin my diet for good though. A few days ago I received a very special package in the mail. When we opened up the box, there sat 4 little yummy containers of Haagen-Dazs new five ice creams packed in some dry ice. My will power would have to be good for this.

Luckily the girls distracted me for a while with the fascination of the dry ice that kept this ice cream nice and cold, and we played with that for a while after I packed the ic cream away from my sight in the freezer. Everything was good until night time, kids in bed, and hubby discovered the new ice cream sitting in our fridge. I gave in, we had to try it.

At first I was excited. You see Haagen-Dazs five is an all-natural ice cream created with only five ingredients. I thought hmm, maybe this is some ice cream I can indulge in, so I turned the carton around and started reading the nutritional information on every carton we got. The mint, Brown Sugar, Ginger and Passion fruit were not going to be my friends or allow me to indulge. Eating ½ a cup of any of these ice creams were easily well over 200 calories. How sad for me. Not sad however for my husband as he really doesn’t care at all about calories (even though he should).

We broke out the spoons, and I had a little taste of each one so I could at least review these right, the brown sugar ice cream was the first victim. YUMMO! I’ve never tasted something so great in my life; the mint was next…Equally as good. I didn’t like the Ginger or the Passion Fruit but my hubby did, and I think we both agreed this was THE BEST ice cream we had ever tasted in our lives. Thankfully I wasn’t set the Chocolate or the Coffee flavor or that would have been the end of it. I can only imagine how great those taste.

When Haagen-Dazs said the new five ice cream was all-natural ingredients…pure taste and unadulterated flavor, they weren’t kidding! There is no false advertising with this ice cream, the taste, the flavor the texture and even the ingredients. Five is five with ingredients in each being the flavor of the ice cream (mint, ginger, brown sugar etc.), milk, cream, sugar, egg yolks. Simple, pure and easy and being all natural, maybe you can pretend it’s better for you and the calories aren’t there.

Visit haagendazs.com for more information on their new five ice creams.

I will have to say my favorite is vanilla BUT, I love any ice cream with caramel or chocalate in it! I will have to confess that my favorite thing with ice crease is a caramel mocha java chiller with an extra sonic boom from sonic! I got addicted to those things, but I had to stop because you can feel the pounds pack on after each drink! Thanks so much!

Oh my goodness... How can you do this to me? I'm already messing up my calorie count with emotional eating, but I couldn't resist trying to win some of this yummy ice cream. My favorite flavor? Anything with chocolate in it. Really, I am serious. I am an addict. LOL... This is a great giveaway. Thanks.


BTW: Thanks for your comment. I am feeling a little better today physically. Now if I could just get the mental part to catch up then I'd be almost normal.

It would be hard to pick a favorite. I love ice cream and I don't get the same thing all the time. You never know what I am coming home with. I love Butter Pecan. I like most Chocolate Flavors. I like a good Chocolate Mint, but most of it taste fake. I like Strawberry if it tastes like fresh strawberries and not strawberry flavoring.

I have a freezer and make my own ice cream, too. Good ice cream is expensive to make.

Thanks for having the giveaway!
