Regardless of what they are, I have to watch myself. I don't eat skinny cow because of the artificial sweeteners; years ago I ate a whole package of weight watchers desserts. They are all good, but I really need to stay away from them.

Prefer the real stuff. Used to do Skinny Cow but don't anymore. Just hate the taste. Give me real ice cream, WW and Skinny cow have things inside that i can't pronounce. If i can't pronounce it, I don't eat it.

I love Skinny Cow! And WW has a couple of new treats (Greek Frozen Yogurt pops) that are good. They are expensive, but seem to go on sale every now & then. This is when I stock up! I need to try Snickerdoodle still! Sounds yummy!

I've been buying Skinny Cow products for several years, it's our number 1 evening snack in this house, 7 pm almost every night!! I usually just get the plain frozen fudge bar on a stick though, but it has helped to see me through the rest of the day of eating "healthy" so I can at least look forward to something tasty. Those Greek froyou things make me have digestive upsets, and I do need to leave the house, lol.

I don't buy Skinny Cow products often, more of a fan of the frozen greek froyo someone below mentioned or top-shelf "full fat" ice cream in small portions...but once in a while I do like the sandwiches, and the snickerdoodle flavor sounds potentially yummy.

My fave were the vanilla and strawberry swirl sandwiches but they have taken them out of most of the stores around me.
I enjoy Skinny Cow products but I usually wait until I have a discount coupon to use before I'll purchase them. I like some of the Weight Watcher ones too but they too are too expensive without using discount coupons
Wow, they are under four bucks here and can be found on sale for $2.99 many times. I am going to start looking for coupons for them. They are more then ice cream to me since they have the cookie outside.
I usually avoid "treat foods marketed as Healthier Choices" as the claims are often deceptive (i.e. "low fat" doesn't necessarily mean "lower calories"!!), and I just don't like the way that they are advertised as some sort of weight loss salvation... and they usually taste like "diet" (i.e. NOT a reasonable fascimile of "the real thing")....
But, I will say, I finally got around to trying a Skinny Cow product a couple of weeks ago, and they do taste good.
That said - WOW are they expensive. Just WOW. I bought my first batch on a great sale. I thought I would pick up some more. They were 8 bucks a box for FIVE!!
So for seven dollars, I bought a box of TWELVE "Chapmans" ordinary not-miraculously-skinny neapolitan ice cream bars.
I looked at the nutrition info. Skinny cow 118 gram chocolate brownie ice cream sandwich: 150 calories. Chapmans 120 gram neapolitan ice cream bar: 160 calories. Skinny cow had less fat but more sugar. They both taste equally yummy.
Darn you, Skinny Cow - capitalizing on my need to find "diet friendly alternatives" - your 10 calorie saving is not worth double the price!!!!!
I was amazed to see all the new flavors since last summer. I knew they had vanilla, chocolate and mint, but now I see they have snickerdoodle, strawberry shortcake and peanut butter something. I bought a carton of the snickerdoodles MMM so good. 140 cals each. That was our dessert here Sat. night when we had a family dinner with my daughter's family over. Any other flavors I might not know of?
