Try it Tuesday....Breyer's Triple Chocolate TWIX Ice Cream

Yes, I know...fattening right? It is. It's funny that Breyer's says that their Triple Chocolate Twix ice cream is "light". Har, har. There are 7 grams of fat in 1/2 cup. It's 4 Weight Wathers points per 1/2 cup. I guess that's not too bad, but considering I can get other ice cream for 1 or 2 pts per cup, I'd say that I probably won't buy the Twix kind for myself again. I'm not saying it's not tasty. I'm a huge chocolate lover as anyone can tell you. This ice cream was yummy, but not as good as my favorite Edy's Loaded choc.peanut butter.

The Twix description goes something like this....Light chocolate ice cream, mixed with caramel, fudge, Twix pieces and cookie bits. Hmm. I guess if I ate more than the 1/2 cup, I would've tasted all of those things. I really don't recall eating any caramel at all. I also don't recall eating the Twix pieces. I do, however, recall eating the fudge swirl and the little round cookie bits. Someone else who has tried this should let me know if there are actually any Twix pieces in it. If you would like to see a review of this ice cream, here is a link to Expo tv's site Twix video

Now....on to another ice cream product.
It was requested from Jillian's friend that I try Nestle's Peanut Butter Fudge Drumstick. So of course, not one to turn down a challenge....I tried one. Oh, I tried it alright. For 9 Weight Watcher's points! Can you say, "ouch"? It was truly yummy though. It was just what I expected right down to the fudgi-ness at the end of the cone. I love Drumsticks no matter what flavor they are. I expected the ice cream to taste a bit more peanut buttery though. But it didn't matter. It was delish. Hey, speaking of Drumsticks...did you know that the Nestle Drumstick is a division of Edys/Dryers? I had no idea. Edy's also makes Haagen-Dazs and Skinny Cow! I loooove Skinny Cow.

That's it for this week. I think I'm running out of things to try! Any ideas would be appreciated ya know :)

Oh, and I've added a picture of Mr. B eating a Pringles Pizza flavored Stix from last weeks try it post, so you can see how skinny those little suckers are. This week, I've eaten 2-3 packages of them. The more I eat them, the more I like them. Again, I just wish the price were lower because I'm cheap ;)
