    I wouldn't advertise any of these. They are fast food and are what made me gain weight. I cannot have these in the house (along with other other trigger foods). They call to me and create a love/hate relationship. I would rather indulge in a small cup if I go out......or find a healthy alternative....and there are plenty! - 8/6/2012   11:36:56 AM

    I'm a bit sad to see items like these being promoted. They might be low in calories, but are probably loaded with HFCS, soy, and/or artificial sweeteners. :( So many better options out there. - 4/7/2011   12:33:57 PM

    I just love Schwan's Trim Creations Fudge Sticks or their Strawberry fruit bars! They are both delicious and 50 calories for the fudge and I think 25 for the strawberry! I have to admit that I usually save enough calories for 2 :) - 7/7/2010   12:11:44 AM

    I am so glad to find this thread. I wrote down all these ideas in my notebook and will have in the car with me when we travel. That way I can remember what I can get when I want something. Thanks for posting. - 7/27/2009   9:38:21 PM

    Mayfield Snow Cream Stix - at 60 calories and 1.5 g fat, it satisfies my craving for ice cream without blowing my diet. Also frozen grapes and icy cold watermelon. - 7/4/2009   8:50:49 AM

    Favourite: take an individual container of low/no fat yogurt, put a popsicle stick into the top (leave foil on), turn upside down (stick sticks up), place in freeze. Whne you want one, just rip off the top, and go at it like an ice cream cone.
    Or...'homemade popsicle' - take fruit juice mixed with a little geletine, pour into individual containers, put a stick into it and freeze. The geletine keeps the juice from dripping as you enjoy in the heat.
    (sorry cannot give the nuturient list as it depends on what you are using)
    Enjoy! :) - 6/24/2009   2:52:26 PM

    DQ Fudge Bar, although they're not for everyone. They're not quite fudgesicles, but they are healthier (plenty of fiber instead of sugars). - 6/24/2009   10:04:23 AM

    GOLDEN SPOON FROZEN YOGURT IS MY FAVORITE LOW CAL FROZEN DESERT!


    HERE'S WHY:

    Q. How many grams of fat per fluid ounce are there in Golden Spoon frozen yogurt?

    Answer: Zero, None, Not a One (in non-fat flavors). Ok, so there is one exception to the rule - Heath Bar contains 1% fat.


    Q. What are the health benefits of Golden Spoon frozen yogurt?

    Answer:low in calories and fat, high in calcium, high in protien, and it aids digestion.


    Q. How is Golden Spoon yogurt sweetened?

    Answer: Golden spoon yogurt is sweetened with a small amount of plain white sugar, corn syrup and/or fructose. Of the 14 grams found within a 4 oz. cup, 6 grams come from the milk and 8 grams come from the added sugar.

    Thanks! I personally love parfaits and Popsicles when I am home, but get cravings for sweets when I am out. These are all pretty good and would satisfy that urge. - 6/23/2009   11:17:22 PM

    Be careful with "Light" treats like cool whip and even some desserts from WW; yogurts, etc. because even though they are light on fat and sugar, they do have High Fructose Corn Syrup in their list of ingredients to make them taste good....

    When I want a dessert, I use fresh fruit (berries, apple, banana, orange) topped with plain yogurt... - 6/23/2009   12:52:34 PM

    I love to cut up a few fresh strawberries and a banana, put in bowl with 1/2 cup fresh blueberries, then mix in 1 serving of Lite Cool Whip!! Yum!!! Also like really cold grapes on a hot day. - 6/23/2009   11:46:55 AM

    I have switched all my ice creasm buying to the Weight Watchers Smart Ones and they are terrific. The other night I offered one to my son-in-law, who doesn't care at all for anything like that and he loved it and has one every night since. I didn't think I'd like them either, but they are EXCELLENT!!! - 6/23/2009   11:09:00 AM

    I don't go near fast food restaurants, but we keep some Trader Joe's ice cream in the fridge at all times for dessert nights - Saturday/Sunday/Wednesday. I try to buy flavors that I don't like, so the temptation is lessened.... - 6/23/2009   10:56:31 AM

    Thank you so much for this handy list! I LOVE my ice cream treats! Hmmm...maybe that's what got me into this mess! :) lol

    Anyways, I have a few favorites for here at home. I had to tell Sparkers about the brand new one I just tried. It just came out and it was SO DELICIOUS, I was in heaven!

    It's put out by Weight Watchers and it's called the candy bar ice cream bar. It's a much healthier version of the snickers ice cream bar but just as good!!

    Peanut butter ice cream topped with caramel, peanuts then dipped in chocolate. Who could ask for more? And I'm not talking bite size either. All this for 150 calories or equivalent to 3 WW points. WORTH EVERY calorie/point and guilt free! - 6/23/2009   10:34:01 AM

    Tanya, I love this blog! I also love that you included some No Sugar Added selections. Would it be possible next time to include the sugar content? I have to watch my sugar intake, and I LOVE ice cream!

    Some of my favs are

    Slim-A-Bear 100-calorie ice cream bar
    Slim-A-Bear No Sugar Added Krunch Bar (170 calories)
    Turkey Hill No Sugar Added, Low-fat Double Chocolate Ice Cream - 6/23/2009   10:12:16 AM

    i must confess...i like ice cream, even though i know it's not the best thing i could spend my calories on. that having been said, it's coming into "the dogdays of summer," and when that rolls around, i love fresh, local, and U.S.-grown fruit of almost all kinds. to me, nothing is as sweet and makes me feel more like a kid again, than when i bite into a big, juicy, sweet nectarine or peach, and some of the juice dribbles down my chin....TMI? nancy - 6/23/2009   8:06:55 AM
