Enlightened Peanut Butter Low Fat Ice Cream Bar
I take a bite... and maybe I need to let it tempter for a few more minutes.
Uggg, I'm not even sure it's fair to review this sample. The outer 1/4" is one consistency and the inside is distinctly another... unless that is just the way it's tempering.... Hold on, let me try eating this another way (like a pudding pop rather than biting it). Ahhh, yeah, that's better, but, well, now I wish these were more of the shape of a classic pudding pop rather this larger form factor.
Yeah, I really don't know what to make of this treat, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I tend to be pretty cranky so you guys know I would toss this if it was really bad. Instead, I'm intrigued and press on.
Regular peanut butter has that naturally fiber-like texture to it, so it's a good match up for a bar like this. It's not a super strong flavor, it's more like a mild peanut butter cream rather than straight peanut butter. It's definitely not a run of the mill flavor.
On Second Scoop: Ok, I took a quick bite before tempering to check the texture and indeed the bar's texture is now uniform. While the inside had one texture yesterday, that same texture is now the whole bar, so I guess we are waiting. I was trying to overlook it yesterday, but the thing that is bugging me most is the sugar replacement in these things. While many people don't even notice it, I tend to be overly sensitive to replacement sugar, whether it be real or artificial. The way it hits your tastebuds just isn't the same and it can be hard for me to overlook. The overall flavor isn't bad, I actually find the peanut butter cream flavoring rather novel, but I'm still trying to settle in to the overall vibe of this bar.
Verdict? Ok, I need feedback here. I'm not positive if I got an off box or not. Let me know if you've tried these, what you think of them, and which flavor I should try next. Thanks!
