Things I Love Thursday- Skinny Cow

tilt Forget pickles, all I want when I am pregnant is ice cream. Much to the annoyance of my husband who is stuck making ice cream runs all night, every night. And much to the annoyance of my waistline, or shall I say, lack of waistline. It disappeared back when I gained 65 pounds while pregnant with Lily (thanks to all the ice cream) and has rarely been seen since. It is kind of like the Loch Ness Monster, rumored to exist, but rarely seen unless in Spanx (not Nessy, me; pretty sure Nessy doesn’t need Spanx).

Thankfully, a long while back, I discovered Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches. More importantly, peanut butter and chocolate ice cream sandwiches. It should be known that I fully and truly believe heaven is a place where I can swim in chocolate and peanut butter, eating as much as I want of it and never getting fat. So when I see something made of that combination that is also low fat, I am pretty darn excited. Skeptical, but excited.

I have been burned before by the low fat label. I firmly believe everything is better when dipped in ranch, but low fat ranch- disgusting. I also believe nearly everything is better when smothered in melted cheese, but low fat cheese. The stuff doesn’t even melt first of all and tastes foul. So I was very doubtful that something claiming to be low fat, chocolate and peanut butter could possibly be good. But it was. It soooo was. And a Skinny Cow fan was born.

Since that time they have come out with lots of different ice cream sandwiches, cones and bars. I have only tried the sandwiches, but hope to move on to explore the whole line soon. In the name of blog research of course. Also, they are Weight Watchers and “Best Life Diet” approved. And gorge yourself on them during pregnancy approved. Although I am not sure that last claim could be backed up by a physician.
