Following the Weight Watchers’ program interested me so much that I even bought this points calculator. It is small and easy to tote to the store or restaurant for a quick point check. Points are calculated based on a food’s calories (the lower the better), fat grams (the lower the better), and the dietary fiber (the higher the better). I really enjoy the Weight Watchers frozen meals- Smart Ones. I always used to take these to work for a yummy lunch- and the points value is right on the package- no surprises.
So, you can obviously tell I am a fan of Weight Watchers. I was THRILLED when I got the chance to try one of their ice cream desserts for FREE! Dessert is always hard for me at the end of the day. I am a complete choc-a-holic which can spell disaster for a whole day of healthy eating!
I was impressed by how many choices there were at the grocery store. Weight Watchers has a whole line of mouth watering frozen desserts. The best part? All of their frozen novelty products are less than 200 calories and only 1-3 Weight Watchers Points!!! So what did I end up choosing? Well, I finally narrowed it down to Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches (only 2 points each)!
YUM! They are really tasty! They’re a decent size, too, which surprised me because 2 Points is such a healthy option…I would expect that you would have to sacrifice size for taste. I decided to take a look at how these desserts stacked up nutrition-wise to my free candy bars that I got last week from Walmart…
YIKES!! How’s that for a comparison? While this ice cream sandwich might not taste quite as rich as a Snickers Bar, it won’t add to exploding love handles either! :)
Weight Watchers has some fun technology aspects as well. I had a lot of fun trying out the Snack Widget! I loved seeing what suggestions it would spit out when I told it what foods I was craving! Their supermarket foods division has a Facebook Page that you can become a fan of…AND you’ll definitely want to check out IncrEdible Rewards site- a fun incentive for purchasing WW treats!
I will happily be adding Weight Watchers frozen treats to the other WW products that I enjoy buying: Smart Ones, bread, English Muffins, and Yogurt! What’s your favorite Weight Watchers treat?!
P.S. I even caught Biker Bob trying one of these ice cream sandwiches the other night. He is a “big-bowl-of-chocolate-ice-cream-every-night” kind of guy. After biting into the sandwich he proclaimed, “Hey! Not bad!” :)
