Turkey Hill Stuff'd Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream Review

Turkey Hill Stuff'd Strawberry Cheesecake Ice CreamIf 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).
