One of the greatest challenges for me in sticking with Weight Watchers & their Freestyle Smart Points program has been the sugar factor.  Like many men & women out there, my Achilles heel is my sweet tooth!  

My absolute greatest weakness is ice cream and gelato!  Nothing soothes my sweet tooth like a nice refreshing, cool & creamy treat like ice cream does. 

Up until recently, I was not indulging my great love of cool, sticky, sweet goodness, but instead when grocery shopping for an edible dessert which wouldn’t bust my Smart Points budget for the day, I was feeling bitter and resentful as anything above five Smart Points is not worth my time.  I only get 23 a day!  I cannot spend one third or half of my points on one sweet.  

I love Haagen Dazs ice cream, but an ice cream bar can cost you 14 Smart Points and a half cup serving can cost you seven or eight or higher. 

Well, things have changed and am I ever excited!  I am Canadian and I also live in a smaller province known as Nova Scotia, so this may be old news to some, but brand new to me!  Introducing Halo Top Ice Cream!!!!

Halo Top boasts a variety of flavors and Birthday Cake for half a cup is three Smart Points.  Mint Chip is four I believe.  I started off with these two tubs not knowing what to expect.  The texture is not as creamy and the ice cream is not as sweet, but it is a nice taste which isn’t artificial tasting as they do use sugar and other natural ingredients.  

I have tried four flavors so far!  My favorite is Candy Bar which is four Smart Points for half a cup! 

I have also tried Birthday Cake, Salted Caramel and Mint Chip and I like them all… A lot!  

There are a lot more flavors I need to try too.  I want to try their waffles and pancakes flavor and my friend told me about a peanut butter flavor.  

Of course eating a ton of Halo Top Ice Cream won’t be as healthy as eating apples and fresh fruit, and I am still trying to consume less processed food and eat more clean.  Sometimes, you just want a naughty indulgent dessert like the hot fudge brownie sundae I split with my Mom a week ago! 

Halo Top is a delicious option which will not bust your Smart Points budget for the day! 

I ama novice blogger and I am not being paid to advertise Halo Top.  I am genuinely excited about this brand of ice cream, as it tastes excellent, unlike so many other calorie reduced, sugar reduced sweets.  

Happy weight watching!  Down a total of 15.4 pounds now! 

Peace & Love – Rachel
