Blue Bunny – Cadbury Caramello Ice Cream Bars

If I was ever asked what company makes the best chocolate – I would more than likely say Cadbury. Cadbury makes a number of chocolates that I quite enjoy – one most notably being Caramello.  Caramello is a milk chocolate bar, cut into squares and the squares are filled with a soft, gooey caramel. Deliciously amazing!  Needless to say when I saw these Cadbury Caramello Ice Cream Bars I was intrigued.  These particular bars are manufactured by Blue Bunny, who also makes some really delicious ice cream – so it was a win/win.
I had these ice creams in the freezer for a while. My boyfriend had been eating them, my niece had one when she came over, but I just wasn’t in the mood for one.  I finally decided I’d have one and after savoring the first bite, I wondered why I waited so long.  These are straight up delicious! There’s no other way to describe them.
The bars are smaller in comparison to some other chocolate bars.  The outside is coated in the milky, creamy chocolate Cadbury is known for.  The ice cream is creamy and rich, and to make it even better it’s swirled with a delicious caramel sauce which is the prize winning ingredient in a Caramello bar. This ice cream is one I certainly savored and enjoyed the flavors, instead of just eating ice cream because I wanted it.
Each bar is 4 points plus each.  The line also sells Cadbury Caramello ice cream bars (in the shape of a candy bar) but those are a point higher.

Blue Bunny Fat Free Brownie Sundae Ice Cream

I spotted this Blue Bunny Fat Free No Sugar Added Brownie Sundae Ice Cream at Walmart and due to the nutrition facts; I decided to pick it up.  I enjoy ice cream every once in a while, and since this was such a change of pace as far as ice cream flavors are concerned, so we had to pick it up.
Brownies and ice cream are two staple items which just go together perfectly.  The ice cream is made up of fat-free no sugar added vanilla ice cream which is blended with fudge ribbons and chunks of brownies.  It’s sweet, chocolaty and just a yummy dessert. I found the ice cream to be relatively creamy and it blends perfectly with some fresh sliced strawberries on top of it.  The ice cream has no added sugar, but it is sweetened with Splenda.  That may be a turning point for some, but I don’t mind Splenda sweetened foods.
A serving size is ½ cup serving for only 80 calories or 2 points plus values!  Quite a steal for ice cream, since the lowest I have found for scoopable ice cream (outside of strawberry fat free frozen yogurt) has been 3 points or higher.

Blue Bunny – Birthday Party Ice Cream Sandwiches

I spotted and picked up a box of Blue Bunny Birthday Party Ice Cream Sandwiches while at the grocery store last weekend.  This came about after searching grocery freezer shelves looking for birthday cake/cake batter ice cream that was points friendly.  Cake Batter ice cream is one of my favorites and has been since a local ice cream stand hooked me on their flavor (because it’s seriously AH-MAZING).  I had been looking for the Skinny Cow Cupcake Batter ice cream cups but to no avail could not find them.  That is until I spotted these bad boys and they immediately went into my grocery cart.
Blue Bunny makes some of the best tasting ice cream (Blue Bunny is typically available at Walmart and Stop & Shop locations).  What drew me in were the caloric stats – 140 calories (3 Weight Watchers Points Plus) for a birthday party ice cream sandwich? Score!
These sandwiches are utterly delicious!  You get the best of both worlds – delicious ice cream and a light, carby “brownie” sandwich.  The one sandwich is enough to satisfy my sweet tooth – and my boyfriend enjoyed it as well.  So double thumbs up!
