Tonight after dinner my body started telling me it needed ice cream. Tonight a piece of fruit for dessert just wouldn't do.
Hubby Tony had a meeting, and I had to run a couple of errands. After everything was done I stopped at the grocery store to buy a small container of ice cream. The first thing I saw when I walked into the aisle was a display of Halo Top.
I'd heard of the brand, but never tried it before. Its main selling point is that it's low-calorie, low-sugar, and high-protein.An entire pint contains as many calories as a single serving of other ice creams. As a matter of fact, the label lists the total calorie count on the front of the carton in very large font, although the official serving size was a quarter of the carton.
Based on past experiences, I knew I would eat the entire pint of ice cream in one serving, so I chose the Chocolate Banana flavor. After I paid for my treat I walked out to my car, where I pulled out the spoon I keep for for reasons like this and dug in. The carton lid gave me permission to “Stop when you hit the bottom”. I did.
