Looking through the ice cream reviews here on Iateapie.net, you can see that we have reviewed a LOT of Edy's products, so I decided on a self-imposed ban in order to make sure that I tried more variety. But, I saw these single portion cups and I couldn't resist, so I decided to try just one flavor. I picked up the Edy's Slow Churned Coffee Ice Cream Cup for $1.25.
This ice cream flavor is delicious - the coffee flavor is quite strong and goes well with the creamy ice cream. This is definitely another way to get a coffee boost - especially in the summer time. I ate this straight out of the freezer, so it was a little hard. I suggest you let it melt a little, as when it's slightly soft, it really is more enjoyable.

There are quite a few reviews of Edy's Slow Churned Ice Cream flavors here on Iateapie.net, but one that I haven't tried before is Edy's Slow Churned Cookie Dough Light Ice Cream. Edy's says this has, "cookie dough pieces and chocolaty within vanilla light ice cream. Hard to believe it's 50% less fat and 30% fewer calories than regular ice cream."
From the description, I thought there would only be cookie dough in the ice cream, but it is actually a traditional chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream despite the name and I'm not complaining! The ice cream is tasty! But although the picture on the carton made it seem that the cookie dough pieces would be substantial, they turned out to be smaller than I had expected. Nevertheless, the overall ice cream was still good and there was quite a lot ff chocolate chips dispersed throughout.
A 1/2 cup serving of Edy's Slow Churned Cookie Dough Light Ice Cream provides 130 calories, 7% of the daily value for total fat, 15% of the DV for saturated fat, 14 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein.
If you like limeade (or lemonade, for that matter), you've got to try Edy's Whole Fruit Lime Fruit Bars. These bars have so much going for them: they're huge (each weighs in at a full 85 grams), they're delicious, and they're low-calorie. Furthermore, for those who avoid artificial sweeteners, you can rest assured that these don't contain any of that stuff.
I was first turned onto Edy's fruit bars by my dad. He gets the strawberry ones, but I've always been partial to citrus, so I bought a 6-pack box of the lime ones for $3.49 from FreshDirect (a NY grocery delivery company). The lime flavor was spot-on (probably because it contains real lime juice!), and it wasn't overly sweet. Some of the thoughts going though my head as I ate one of these bars: refreshing and tart, perfect to both quench my thirst AND satisfy my sugar craving, so delicious .
I like eating a variety of ice cream but prefer that it be somewhat low in fat and calories. Even though this Edy's Apple Pie Frozen Dairy Dessert isn't explicitly either of those things, the nutrition facts are comparable to other "light" ice creams. Technically, this product is not an ice cream because the first ingredient is whey rather than milk, but for the average consumer, I would consider Edy's Apple Pie to be an ice cream.
The description depicts this ice cream as vanilla with pie crust and apple pieces, but the ice cream itself has an apple-tinged color and tasty flavor of apple pie from the addition of spices, some of which can be seen as specks in the ice cream. Indeed, there are also apple pieces mixed in the ice cream, but most are rather small and don't really change the overall texture of the ice cream. My favorite part of the ice cream was the inclusion of the pie crust pieces, which provided sporadic chewy pieces to complement the ice cream.
I usually associate chocolate vanilla swirl ice cream with the self-serve ice cream machines at buffet restaurants, but with the Edy's Slow Churned Yogurt Blends Chocolate Vanilla Swirl Cultured Frozen Dairy Dessert, I found an ultra healthy iteration that I can keep in my own freezer. Even though this product is classified as a frozen dairy dessert, I still tend to call it ice cream in everyday conversation.
Inside the container the chocolate and vanilla flavors were arranged in alternating layers as expected. What I didn't anticipate though, was how creamy this would be. The ice cream had a nice, mild sweetness too. For an ordinary flavor combination, this ice cream held my attention quite well. In addition to being a low-fat source of calcium, this ice cream also has active yogurt cultures, which give it an edge over other ice cream.
Thin Mints are probably the most popular Girl Scout cookie, but I bet Samoas (or Caramel Delites) are a close second. I don't know how the combination of cookie, caramel, chocolate, and coconut in Samoas can be so tasty, but it just is. Edy's (or Dreyer's) has mixed the yumminess of Samoas with ice cream to make Edy's Slow Churned Samoas Cookie Light Ice Cream.
The caramel and vanilla ice cream base sounds like it would complement the Samoas, but while it is smooth and creamy, I thought the caramel was too mild. There was a decent amount of crumbled Samoas in the ice cream, but they were too ground up to really enjoy the essence of the Samoa. I thought I would LOVE this ice cream, but the caramel and vanilla base is just so-so and the Samoas cookies could have been just about anything. As far as Girl Scout Cookie inspired flavors go, I would have to say Edy's Slow Churned Thin Mint Cookie Ice Cream is way better.
