I have been going through SO much of this stuff. It is really great as it is so low in calories, sugar and has protein. Favorite flavors so far are the Cookies and Cream and Strawberry. Can not seem to find the Pumpkin Spice in CT yet. If you let it sit for about 15 min before eating it, it taste even better.

    I tried the coworker's chocolate flavor and it tasted like frozen protein shake. I think I'd rather ration myself on the real deal.

      I've never heard of it - just did a search to see what it was. Based on the "let it sit" comment, I thought it was a smoothie/drink of some sort.

      If it's a frozen treat like ice cream, why is it better if you leave it out for a few minutes? Doesn't it get melty? (I'm actually curious, not trying to sound snotty, although it kind of sounds that way.)

        Ditdah, this ice cream does not get melty unless it is out for a really long time. Since it is sweetened with Monkfruit and has protein, it has a better consistency and taste when not right out of the freezer. It does resemble a frozen protein shake and does not have the mouthfeel of real ice cream. but the flavors are fun and it does not matter how much you eat since the calories are minimal.

          I see it's available in my area - I'm going to have to try some. Although, based on your first post, I'm not sure I should... regardless of how many (or few) calories it has, I'm not sure I want to get addicted and start wolfing it down by the carton!

        This is basically frozen water, or flavored ice. Not ice cream.

          Product has really been doing well. I am addicted to Strawberry and Chocolate Flavors now.

            I've seen this at some Costco's, pretty tasty.
