Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Creme Cereal

I spotted this new Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Creme Cereal at Target but refrained from purchasing because I had a few boxes of cereal at home to eat up.  Well, since I was in the midst of my cereal kick I ended up finishing off a box so I picked up this as a new flavor cereal.  I anticipated that this cereal would be phenomenal.  I mean cookies and cream? One of my favorite ice cream flavors ever in cereal form? No doubt it had to be amazing…
I opened the box, measured out my ¾ cup serving and ate it with some almond milk and I have to say … I was disappointed. It didn’t measure up to what I thought it would taste like.  It reminded me of a subdued cocoa puff with another flavor mixed in the background.  You can’t quite taste the “creme” but the chocolate is really mild and a little boring.  It’s not a sweet cereal to say the least.  The flavor combination kind of threw my taste buds for a loop.  This is a cereal I’d eat once in a while, but it’s not a cereal that’ll be my staple … nor will it be a cereal that I’d purchase again.
A ¾ cup serving is 3 points plus values.
Have you tried any new interesting cereals lately?

Skinny Cow Cookies n Cream Ice Cream Sandwiches

I have been a big fan of Skinny Cow ice creams because they’re a healthier alternative to some of the other ice creams on the market.  Even though they are a healthier alterative, you’re definitely not sacrificing taste or flavor for lesser calories and fat.
I purchased the Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Sandwiches because cookies and cream is my all time favorite gallon ice cream flavor.  I’ve tried low fat cookies and cream ice creams in the past and haven’t always been the biggest fan because the ice cream is more icy than creamy.  The sandwiches are just pure delicious – a nice chocolate cookie “crust” and a smooth and creamy cookie filled ice cream.  A great treat, so great that even those who don’t necessarily count calories or watch what they eat, reach for these when they’re in the freezer and I offer up ice cream.
One whole sandwich is 4 points plus values, which is completely worth it when in comparison to some of the other outrageously high point ice creams on n freezer shelves.  Plus the great things with Skinny Cows is since they’ve repackaged their boxes each ice cream sandwich is individually wrapped for better quality and freshness!
