Arctic Zero Review & Giveaway


It's Summertime (not officially yet, though) and it is already hot here in Texas. At this moment, it is 98* with a heat index of 104*. So, we're pouring ice cold water over ourselves to stay cool, and having ice cream when we can.

With Arctic Zero frozen desserts, you can eat what you want without the guilt! What makes them so special? They are great for those who are lactose-intolerant, who lead a gluten-free lifestyle, who must have foods that are kosher, and even for those looking for fat-free treats.



Have you ever just wanted to eat a whole pint of ice cream? Yea, me too. With Arctic Zero, you actually can! Each pint is just 150 calories, contain only natural or organic ingredients, and are great for those who have Type 2 Diabetes. And if you want flavors that will blow your mind, they have those as well. Their selection of pint flavors include Chocolate, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Coffee, Cookies & Cream, Mint Chocolate Chip, Strawberry, Vanilla Maple, and seasonal flavors.

If you're not feeling like a pint, Arctic Zero also has Chocolate Dipped frozen bars. Each bar only has 85 calories, making it a low calorie treat when you feel like you're going to pass out from the heat. There aren't that many flavors, but each flavor will make you want more. The flavors are: 4-pack box with 2 Chocolate & 2 Vanilla and 4-pack box with 2 Strawberry & 2 Orange Cream.

These treats are great for kids because they contain no sugar alcohols and are great for children who are lactose-intolerant. It's a great way to stay cool during the hottest days of Summer!

WHAT I THOUGHT
I won't deny it- I love ice cream. But it has to be frozen- not a melty mess. So when I found out that I would be able to try Arctic Zero, I jumped for joy! It wasn't even the middle of June and we were already reaching 90* with heat indexes close to 100. I just wanted something cold and sugary to eat.

Cookies & Cream
But I did not prepare myself for what I was about to receive. When the box finally came, it was filled with almost every flavor they have- including one not on the list! This was gonna be fun. Here is what I thought about a few of those flavors:

Pumpkin Spice (one of my favorites!)- It definitely tasted like frozen pumpkin pie, just without the crust. It wasn't too sweet, or bland. You knew you were eating pumpkin.
Cookies & Cream (another favorite!)- This one threw me off a little. When you open it, the color will make you wonder what it's gonna taste like, because the color was definitely gray. Yes, gray. But it tasted just like cookies & cream- just without any actual cookies in there. Didn't need it. It was fabulous!
Mint Chocolate Chip- It was okay. Twin and I both thought it was a little bland. It really didn't have any flavor until you got to the bottom of it, and it didn't have any chocolate chips in it.
Pumpkin Spice
Coffee- I bet you're wondering what it tasted like. Have you ever just made coffee, only to realize that you don't want it, but stuck in the freezer so it doesn't go to waste? Same concept, and same taste. If you were blindfolded and took a taste, you had no doubt that it was coffee. Mom had that, but didn't get a buzz from it. LOL
Vanilla Maple- This one was delicious! It tasted like great vanilla ice cream and someone drizzled maple all over it. Lip-smacking good!
Strawberry Frozen Bar- Bright, vibrant pink color and it's bursting with strawberry flavor! It's chocolate-dipped, which I love. Only problem is that it melts easily, so if you're living on the sun, you might wanna eat it quick. Other than that, It had the strawberry flavor I was looking for!

The other flavors (except for a frozen bar incident where it pretty much melted into nothingness before I got a chance to eat it) were flavorful and delicious. It actually had the texture of ice cream. A great way to cool down during a Summer in Texas!
