Default Carb Smart Ice Cream

Hey everyone in Vancouver My roommate bought me this Breyers carb smart ice cream the other day, and it was really gross!! I almost died when he told me how much he paid for it ($7.99), and it wasn't even that good! Had a very artifical mouth coating texture. Instead, my new favorite is Safeway NoSugarAdded strawberry! A bit higher in carbs, but awesome!! And pretty cheap $3.99...
Sometimes it makes me so mad how much people are charging for low carb products. I went to the low carb store on Arbutus the other day, and they wanted $11 for a box of frozen waffles (think Eggo waffles). Ridiculous. I can't remember back when LowFat first started, but were all the prices so jacked up then? Is there hope for low carbers to be able to spend $3.50 on a bag of toritilla chips (and not $7) like normal people?

Default low carb icecream

Hi there. I just bought Breyer's low carb icecream at the local 711 store.

I havn't tried it yet- but I hope that I like the taste better than you did.

BTW it was 7.49 less than you paid at Safeway!

The Breyers brand is also available at Costco for $5.99 ~ My dad buys it as he's diabetic....I haven't tried it, but for him if he can't have the real things....it's the next best thing. I've tried Chapman's Sugar Free (Choc & Vanilla) it's around $7.00 at Superstore and IGA ~ it's ok, in small doses but does the trick if you are craving ice cream.

Cool HI Josiecat

well, I just finished a dish of it. It was vanilla and I thought it was fine. No after taste that I noticed... I also had some sorbee chocolate syrup I tried with it.

BTW a little goes a long way. I didn't really like that product. Too sweet and a distinct after taste

Are the Carb-Smart ice cream bars available in Canada? London, Ontario to be precise.
