If you thought that Turkey Hill "Stuff'd" Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream would be "stuffed" with calories, fat, and sugar, you would be wrong. Surprisingly, this treat is described as a "mild cream cheese flavored light ice cream with cheesecake pieces and a strawberry swirl." Well, well, well ... a "light" cheesecake ice cream sounded too good to resist, so I picked up a pint for $2.99 - not only is this light, but it's one of the more inexpensive varieties of ice cream, too!
I dug in to the ice cream as soon as I got it home. I was slightly disappointed to see that it melted quickly, but that just meant I had to dig in immediately, right? I liked the flavor of the ice cream, and was especially delighted by the cheesecake chunks. The texture was creamy and it was satisfying but not too heavy.
I was still a little concerned that the nutrition facts wouldn't be "light" but it stands up well to other reduced fat varieties. Each 1/2 cup serving of Turkey Hill Stuff'd Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream provides 120 calories from 3 grams of fat, of which 1.5 grams if saturated (5% and 8% of the daily value), 95 mg of sodium (4% of the DV), 2 grams of protein and 20 grams of carbohydrates which includes 1 gram of fiber and 15 grams of sugar. There is also 20% of the daily recommendations for calcium and vitamin D. Not bad at all - but the ingredient list is quite lengthy - looks like they threw everything they possibly could in there.
Although I wasn't thrilled with the ingredients list, given the taste, decent nutrition facts and price, I'll be buying this one again (and trying the other Stuff'd varities).
