Have been known to take an extra spoonful when making dessert.

I had a good chuckle when I saw the title of this thread!

I've licked the spoon, but never sat down with a spoon and a tub, but I WILL do a squirt of Redi-Whip in the mouth when I use that, and as a kid, I could ssit down with a spoon and a can of Sweetened Condensed milk. Now.......I could eat a whole jar of the honey peanut butter if I REALLY allowed myself!

I get the 95% fat free kind when the kids ask for it. That way if I dip in it hurts a lot less calories. Unfortunately, it's like chips, after that 1st taste it's hard to stop the need for more sugar-like gratification.

its great frozen. just a spoonful and you feel like you had dessert.

11/17/11 3:53 P

Yeah, it's trackable but not very good to eat, LOL!

1968, this new stuff called Cool Whip came out and my Mom bought some. I ate the whole bowl and got really sick. Only in the last 10 years did I ever eat it again.

I have. I measure it with my food scale to make sure i'm eating the exact amount that I add to my tracker. A few tbsps of cool whip when measured is a lot less than I assumed it would be. I've even added chocolate chips before for a quick dessert. Reminded me of pie, but without the crust and filling.

For dessert, yes. Frozen, the mouth feel and creaminess is just like ice cream.

Yes I have and I think I'm gonna try mixing with the dry jello, that sounds good. I've mixed it with dry pudding to make "icing" for cupcakes, but didn't like it. emoticon

Whipped cream, yes -- cool whip, never. It's been on things I ate that other people made, but generally I won't touch it, It's not real food.

No, never Coolwhip, but I have just eaten mayo. Good for you for tracking it! If you bite it, better write it.

Yes, just to use it up.....but it wasn't as satisfying as having it on fruit or a dessert.

matter of a fact yes...... see i am a diabetic so instead of watching calories i watch total carbs and being dairy it has none. so yes i have opened a new one up and just eaten the whole thing with my finger

that and redi whip too. But haven't done it in over a year since I gave up sugar.

11/17/11 12:27 P

Yuck, I don't like cool whip, BUT I have eaten those little 10 calorie-type things -- yesterday it was just 3 Doritos, but that was 50 calories! Well, like you, I have decided that if I eat it, it gets tracked no matter what. What a big motivator to not eat the little bites.

Yep, it tastes like light ice cream!

love coolwhip and will just eat it plain... it also makes a yummy dip for fruit if you mix in a package of dry jello (strawberry is best)... it's light and fruity and has a mousse-like consistency and is great on it's own but also yum with fruit!

Yes, but it's Cool Whip's fault for being so irresistible.

I will say that I only buy and consume the "light/lite" versions, and at least it's better than eating a cake or a pie.

great rule there, but ..eeeeww no...real whip cream straight from the
I'm not a whip cream snob..just prefer the taste better...husband and daughter prefer Cool Whip.
I love the "laugh about and move on" comment too. Beating yourself up too much just makes you reach for the Cheetos too.

I think I have eaten Cool Whip by itself.

Tracking every single thing that you eat is a good rule. Makes one think about what they are about to put in their mouth

Good rule! And YES, I have eaten just Cool Whip! I think it is made with plastic and sugar ... emoticon

LOL! I needed something sweet today; I must have had 10 tablespoons. I counted them on my tracker. Fortunately, I didn't go over on calories today, and the rest of my food was nutritious. My new rule: If I'm gonna eat it, I have to track it, no matter what it is.
