I am a fan of Blue Bell brand ice cream, from a long time ago. When I spotted a container of Blue Bell Light Cookies ‘˜N Cream Ice Cream in the ice cream section of my local favorite grocery store, I was just delighted. I decided to purchase it, try it and write an unbiased product review all about my personal experience with it. Here is what I discovered!
A one quart container of Blue Bell Light Cookies ‘˜N Cream Ice Cream costs around four dollars, depending on what store you buy this product in. It is a bit hard to find, in my opinion, since I have only seen this light ice cream in one grocery store, in my local town. Even the grocery store check out clerk commented to me about this ice cream, as I bought it. She said “Wow! I didn’t even know that Blue Bell had a light type of ice cream!” I told her that I didn’t either, until I saw it. She asked me if it was any good. I told her that I was about to find out that very thing. She smiled.
A good source of calcium, low in saturated fat and fairly low in cholesterol, this light ice cream has so many good things going for it. Twenty-five percent fewer calories than regular ice cream. Sixty-five percent less fat than regular ice cream, too. All of that sounded wonderful to me. I am a cookies and cream ice cream fan. I could not wait to taste this sweet treat.
When I tasted Blue Bell Light Cookies ‘˜N Cream Ice Cream, I liked it. It has lots of crumbled cookies in it. I do mean lots! The cookies are abundant and make this ice cream crunchy and great. Some of the cookies are quite finely crumbled and be careful that you don’t inhale some cookie crumbled dust while eating it. The ice cream is good. But. Yes, there is a but, unfortunately. I did miss the rich ice cream taste of good old fat filled Blue Bell ice cream. This is a bit watered down. Not as rich and creamy as I’d hoped that it would be. Still, it is yummy and very pleasing. I rate it four stars out of five stars. It does need a bit more work, in my opinion.
I will say that this is a great frozen dessert and ice cream for dieters and it is nice. A friend of mine also tried this ice cream and she had no complaints. Everyone is different and this light ice cream is certainly worth trying. One, one half cup serving has 140 calories in it. Just 30 of those calories come from fat. One serving has 3.5 grams of total fat, 1.5 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 10 mg’s of cholesterol, 100 mg’s of sodium, 23 grams of total carbs, 0 grams of dietary fiber, 18 grams of sugars and 5 grams of protein. This ice cream has a nice amount of calcium in it.
I enjoyed trying Blue Bell Light Cookies ‘˜N Cream Ice Cream and writing this product review about it. I am just glad that Blue Bell offers me a light version of their cookies ‘˜n cream ice cream. I do appreciate it. At the time of writing this review, this is a new product and a good one. For more information, you can visit the bluebell.com website.
