Slender Bovines

My Beloved and I adore ice cream. Our love is constant and seasonless - we savor ice cream all year 'round. For us, a dinner that doesn't end in ice cream is not only a rarity, it's a vague disappointment.

Sadly, our love affair with ice cream is one of the (many) reasons why we are as round as we are. Sigh.

So, when we discovered at our local Mom and Pop market the Skinny Cow brand of fudge bars, we were thrilled to pieces.

Normally, low fat foods are lacking in flavor and texture as well as in calories, and they can be counter-productive since they don't really satisfy one's desire for dessert. These bars, however, we find to be nicely chocolatey and silky, a really reasonable substitute for the higher calorie treats that we do occasionally indulge in. We like them so much that when we dine out, we often skip dessert in favor of coming home to what we fondly call a "stick dessert."

As kids, we chanted "You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream!" We still do, and thank heaven for this happy invention.

I found I also liked the healthy balance ones and they do seem like a proper treat, not a miserable second best.
