Guilt-Free Ice Cream Eating!

Ice cream is my happy food.

I love ice cream.
I love ice cream.
I love ice cream.
I heart ice cream.
I absolutely love ice cream.

This is my solution to eating loads of ice cream and trying not to grow fat. Like Ms. Bridget Jones, I would love to have a relationship with Ben and Jerry, but unfortunately I don’t have skinny-skinny genes and so an alternative is needed. No fear, Fruitfull is here! Perhaps I’m being self-delusional in thinking that this is healthier, but it feels healthier and so it is. I found this ice cream a few months ago in this organic shop I happen to pop in, after that day, I used to beg my brother to drive by while we were around that area and so he was really happy when one fine day when we popped into the shop and THE ICE CREAM BOX DISAPPEARED! I was very upset.

However, I have found a place that sells it again and just that day I found some other place that brings in Fruitfull ice creams. I have tried a few flavours, however my memory fails me. The last flavour I had was mango cream which was heavenly. What I like about it is that it feels healthy, they have real fruit chunks in them and they have a wide variety of flavours to choose from which is wonderful. If you aren’t a fruity tooty type, then they have something that would meet your taste buds as well, they have a range of ice creams called Happy Indulgences Decadent Dips, which are creamier and they have CHOCOLATE COATING! Some of the flavours include – Chocolate Dipped Mud pie, Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Cream and Chocolate Dipped Banana Split. The wonderful news is that they contain less fat than other premium ice creams. Isn’t that simply wonderful? So the next important information is where to get these wonderful things. The first box I found is in Yogi Hub, the organic vegetarian shop that I reviewed. The second ice cream box is at a pharmacy at far east square. (I apologise for the vague directions but it’s worth the hunt). Price-wise, they aren’t your walls 20 cents ice creams unfortunately, like with organic and all these other healthy foods that u buy, they come with a price, my mango cream set me back S$2.90 a stick and I think the Happy Indulgences are about S$3.50. I like them still with the healthy factor of: no/low fat, saturated fat, sodium and cholesterol … there are some things in life that you have to enjoy, and ice cream is on my list.
