Monday Contest Madess: "I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For......"

So, as I stated last week, for the next few Mondays, I will be announcing different weekly contests & giving away all sorts of "Diabetesalicious" prizes away. WHY? Because you guys advocate 365 days a year and deserve rewards for all your hard work!

This week It's all about ICE CREAM, as in the Blue Bunny Sweet Freedom Ice Cream line, which has no sugar and is lower in fat and carbs than it's Blue Bunny 'fully leaded" counterparts!

Now, because I love you guys, I actually had to do a comprehensive taste test on the following flavors that the folks at Blue Bunny Sent me. And again, because I love you all; I forced myself to indulge in The Sweet Freedom Crunch Lite Bars, I gave my tongue a sleigh ride on the Sweet Freedom Fudge Lite Bars, and literally and figuratively took a dive right into Blue Bunny's No Sugar Added Reduced Fat Chocolate Ice Cream. It was hard work, but I have to say, all three products were damn tasty & TOTALLY bolus worthy!

In order to win, all you have to do is leave a comment on my blog this week. The more comments you leave, the better chance you have of winning. At the end of the week, I pull a "blue bunny" (pun intended) out of the hat, and pick a winner!

Go for it and GOOD LUCK!!

Full Disclosure: Blue Bunny did not pay me, but they did send me free ice cream, and YES, my neighbors were TOTALLY jealous! Now, if Blue Bunny would like to advertise on my blog in the future, I'm all for it - as I really do like (and eat!) their products.

It's true; Blue Bunny is delish. Free ice cream? Yes, please...

sajabla said...

Those crunchy bars look delish, and I am a sucker for fudge bars! YUM!

Michael Hoskins said...

What a trooper you are, taste-testing just to make sure all was kosher! Quite obviously, they had to twist your arm to make sure... :))

Jasmine said...

This is making me crave some chocolate :)

I did a recent comparison of Blue Bunny's no sugar added and regular ice cream and do you know what I found? The regular (sugar added) ice cream has less carbs!

We usually choose the ones without all the sugar alcohols and artificial sweeteners.

I am all for the indulging!

Hi guys -
Thanks for entering.
Leighann re: your commet.
The carb count for the Fudge lites is 19 grams of carbs verses 21grams of carbs for the 100 calorie Fudge Bars.

The Vanilla Ice Cream Crunch Bars contain 17 grams of carbs, while the Sweet Freedom Crunch Bars contain 11 grams of carbs.

BB Premium Chocolate Icecream has 16 grams of carbs & 7 grams of fat, while the BB No Sugar Added Reduced Fat Chocolate Ice Cream also has 16 grams of fat & 5 grams of fat.
Some no sugar ice creams do have more carbs, some don't. It's all about having choices - and thank goodness we have so many too chose from!

Next time I'm in the USA (don't include me in your competition K2) - guess what I'm looking for? Blue Bunny - so appropriate when you think about it for Diabetes Awareness being blue!!
Enjoy licking out the ice cream container when you've gotten to the bottom (pull hair back - beware eyebrows will become stiff after drying - pretend you are Gene Simmons of KISS with the looonnnnggggg tongue). \\^^//

Heidi / D-Tales said...

Mmm mmm mmm, even in late fall and winter, we like ice cream!!! :)

Bunny said...

Kelly, I just discovered your blog today while surfing diabetes sites and love it! I think a sense of humor is the best way to handle all the things life throws at us and appreciate that you bring that to the blog. I look forward to reading future entries! :)

Meri said...

Big fan of the Blue Bunny! Hooray for ice cream!

Ice Cream is my favorite treat! I hate having to measure it out but, using a very small bowl/dish helps.

Penny said...

Gosh you have it hard, don't ya Kel? Wait til I tell Miss G that you just HAD to taste test ice cream - she will be a knockin' at your door by morning! Of course we had to enter the giveaway - a girl has to have her lower-carb ice cream!
