  • We like Kroger Delux Frozen Yogurt with 90 calories per 1/2 cup, 1g of total fat, and 10m cholesterol. It still seems calorie high, but is lower than most. It usually is about $2.50 which I like.

  • I like ice cream as much as the next person but I have never found a 'lite' version that measured up. However, a lighter alternative that I really enjoy is sherbet, which is quite often touted as fat free.

    I agree that store brands for many items are just as good and many times better than the more expensive name brands.

  • Debbi and I used to run two ice cream shops in Bedford County. We carried some sugar free for our diabetic friends but they were slow movers (the flavors, not our friends).

    When it comes to treating yourself (not a regular diet) we have to agree with mytaxesaremine. When at all possible, we carried the premium line on everything but when it just was not offered in that grade, we had to buy the standard.

    You could easily tell the difference between the higher fat content and the standard. In fact, it helped me wean myself off standard ice cream. Now, if I have any, I would much prefer it to be the "real" thing, frozen cream, not milk.

    Of course, I have few (maybe more) pounds to shed, but it is not from eating ice cream. :-)

  • I must agree with those who say'real' ice cream or none at all. I do enjoy frozen yogurt on occasion. Can't do the store-bought but love Peachwave or Sweet Cici's.

    Many times the lower fat options have other fillers to improve taste, whether it's sugar, gums, etc. Fat is a flavor carrier and often when our 'taste' is satisified, we're content with much less.

  • Personally, Graeter's is my favorite of grocery store ice cream but it is LOADED with calories.

  • Kroger's on occasion has a very yummy Cordial Chocolate Cherry Frozen Yogurt. I am not a big ice cream person, and NOT a fan of yogurt (yucky in my book) but I must say that this is not something that will have the fear of getting old in my freezer!
