Product: SOLA Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream
Anyone who knows me, will tell you I am a creature of habit when it comes to my food. I like certain brands/flavors and will usually stick to those. I rarely switch up unless I’m able to get a sample of the new product before buying. In this case, Harris Teeter was having one of their super double coupon sales and Sola ice cream pints were free with coupons. I had previously tried Sola yogurt as a freebie through Harris Teeter and liked it so I decided to take advantage of the freebie ice cream.
Product background: Sola Ice Cream is created to be low in sugar, net carbs, and glycemic. In other words, somewhat healthy. According to the label, Sola uses tagatose, which is a natural type of sugar that has almost no calories and minimally affects blood sugar, which could be good news for diabetics or those watching their sugar intake in general. The ice cream is sold by the pint and comes in 8 different flavors! You may want to check out the SOLA website for more health info and see the other products they offer.
My thoughts: I LOVE Chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream so I decided to make that my trial flavor. It is vanilla ice cream with bits of cookie dough and chocolate chips. The ice cream was creamy and delicious. I have also experimented with other “healthy” ice cream brands such as Halo and Enlightened and honestly SOLA is my favorite of the three. The taste was not sacrificed in this product and I didn’t feel guilty indulging. I loved it so much that I went back for 2 more pints since they were on sale BOGO and usually run almost $6 a pint. With $2 off coupons that doubled, I was able to get 2 pints for $1, plus another $3 back on ibotta! Definitely a delicious deal!
Price: almost $6 per pint 😞
