Blue Bunny Sweet Freedom Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwiches
Vanilla Low Fat No Sugar Added Ice Cream between
Two No Sugar Added Chocolaty Wafers
It was fitting that Blue Bunny sent me these to review because science and stuff. Let’s do a quick comparison of nutritional info. The Simply Sandwiches have 160 calories, 5 grams of fat and 15 grams of sugar. On the other hand, these Sweet Freedom Sandwiches have 130 calories, 3.5 grams of fat and only 4 grams of sugar. The target market for these seems to be those who watch their sugar intake and with 11 grams less, these certainly fit that bill. Let’s just hope these sandwiches survived their trip to my house unlike the Simply ones.
First off I’m glad to report that the wafers don’t stick to your fingers. That was one of my gripes with the Simply sandwiches and a major pet peeve of mine. As for the taste, well just like their appearance, they taste shockingly similar as well. The sandwiches are slightly sweeter which I’m guessing is from the sugar alcohols. I like it though because it works well with the bitterness from the chocolate wafers. I think I’d go for one of these over the Simply sandwiches if given the choice. The added sweetness coupled with the structural soundness of the wafers easily makes these an enjoyable treat. The fact that my hands aren’t messy is also a major plus. Good job, Blue Bunny! You’ve made an ice cream sandwich that most people can enjoy no matter their dietary restrictions. Also, they’re portion controlled so you can’t overdo it like I did with their Brownie Sundae Ice Cream.
Verdict? A no sugar added version of a classic done right
