My Review: When I got this ice cream I was so excited about what I was getting.  My children were super excited about all the dry ice it was packed in.  But as I started eating I was quickly surprised by the taste.  It wasn't strong, it wasn't overly sweet, and it wasn't bad.  So I had to pass out the ice cream to family to see what they thought.  The only problem for me, was that I had to wait for family to come so I could pass out the ice cream.  So I waited a few weeks for the family members who especially have dietary restrictions to become available so that they could test the ice cream.  This testing was very fun, and surprising.  Here is the conciseness of having 10 people test these flavors out:
Arctic Bars: Strawberry: only 3 people enjoyed.  Orange: 10 people enjoyed.  Vanilla: only 4 people enjoyed.  Chocolate: 10 people enjoyed.

Arctic Pints: Strawberry, Coffee, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Chocolate, Vanilla Maple: only 3 people enjoyed.  Mint, Cookies and Cream: 7 people enjoyed.


With the 10 people who tested the ice cream those who didn't enjoy the ice cream (whether in bar or pint) really love sugary items, have a major sweet tooth, and or enjoy the "finer" tasting foods.  Of those who did enjoy the ice cream, the bars were really good because of these factors: the dark chocolate coat, the softness once the ice cream thaws, the texture of the ice cream, and the lack of sweetness and sugar.  Of those who enjoyed the pints, it was the same, they don't like super sweet ice cream, and or super sugary ice cream.  This ice cream was eaten by people with and without dietary restrictions and those with the restrictions found this ice cream to be perfect!

I personally found that this ice cream though not all the flavors were enjoyable (I loved the mint and cookies and cream, and the bars) that this didn't make me sick, or hurt my stomach after eating.  Though I have not been diagnosed with any dietary restrictions as of yet.  This was still the easiest ice cream for my body to handle, and that I really loved.


Pros: amazing in all aspects

Cons: it doesn't contain tons of sugar, and is organic so there will be people who won't like it.  But you won't know unless you try it.

  2. I think this would be perfect for my kids, they don't seem to mind that I have cut sugar mostly out of their diets. I am not sure that they even really noticed. But they did notice that ice cream has not been something I have bought this summer. And trust me they noticed the past week, as we are hitting triple digits plus humidity.

    I would love to be able to give this to them because they really are missing their ice cream!
