Haagen-Dazs Wildberry Low-Fat Frozen Yogurt Review

Haagen Dazs Wildberry Lowfat Frozen YogurtIt's hard to believe that the Haagen-Dazs brand has anything with anything but a butt load of saturated fat, but the brand's lowfat frozen yogurt offerings seem like they should be "better for you" than ice cream. And indeed, some of them are - many have fewer calories than full-fat ice cream, but not so few as the fat free or sugar free ice cream varieties. Still, I was intrigued to see what the taste was like so I picked up a pint of the Wildberry Lowfat Frozen Yogurt for $4.99 and took it home with me.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1/2 cup (106 grams)
Calories: 180
Total Fat: 2 grams, 3%
Saturated Fat: 1 gram, 5%
Sodium: 40, 2%
Carbohydrates: 34 grams
Fiber: 0%
Sugars: 27 grams
Protein: 7 grams

I found that this frozen yogurt was soft enough to spoon directly from the container (always a plus), and the taste was remarkable. It was smooth and creamy, milky and sweet, interspersed with a berry flavor. I was amazed at how silky it was and how pleasing and creamy it was to my taste buds.

Each 1/2 cup serving of Haagen-Dazs Wildberry Lowfat Frozen Yogurt provides 180 calories, 2 grams of total fat, 1 gram of which is saturated), 35 mg of cholesterol (12% of the daily value), 40 mg of sodium (2% of the RDA), 27 grams of sugar (no fiber) and 7 grams of protein. Wow - 27 grams of sugars in just a 1/2 cup serving is a LOT!

This is really a good example of why you have to read the labels on a food product - and not be swayed by just the product name. This cannot be anything other than a decadent indulgent, once in a while treat as almost 75% of the calories come from sugar. I find that most frozen yogurts tend to have a lot of sugar (low fat or not), but a better alternative is Blue Bunny Strawberry Cheesecake Fat Free Frozen Yogurt (100 calories & 18 grams of sugar); or maybe just go with a fro-yo bar instead, like Yolato Pomegranato Frozen Yogurt Gelato Bars (80 calories and 14 grams of sugars) or Edys Smoothie Real Fruit and Frozen Yogurt Bars (100 calories and 13 grams of sugars).
