Skinny Cow – A Yummy Treat Without The Guilt! Giveaway {Ends 11/7}



Sticking out of the ice cream freezer, all you saw were legs! Yes, it’s true – they were my legs because I was busy trying to retrieve the very last box of Skinny Cow chocolate truffle bars. I am sure I garnered a few strange looks but I was desperate! I needed some chocolate without the guilt that comes with chocolate.

Yummy, yummy ribbons of chocolate frozen on a popsicle. No high fructose corn syrup, only a hundred calories, and did I mention CHOCOLATE? You know you would have been diving into that freezer too if it was the last box and you wanted it that bad too! It really did take a miracle to get that box – it was well over a minute of me digging in the freezer, trying to get it to inch its way done the tray. Hey, I’m moving and packing – I’m entitled to be a little weird sometimes!

I finally used a roll of paper towels to get the box out of the freezer and I returned home triumphant. I also picked up two cartons of Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches. After a hard day of gathering all our painting supplies, pulling up carpet, wiping down walls, and prepping for paint, I was ready for my hard earned Skinny Cow chocolate truffle bar.

It was worth every second of fighting the freezer at Target and while Gracie did manage to steal the last little bit of my bar, it was so yummy! My husband enjoyed the Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches which are just as yummy and rewarding but I will definitely be taking part in another chocolate truffle bar tonight! Maybe next time, I’ll try the French Vanilla.



And now because I know you want some too and I am sure I have made you hungry, I am giving away a month’s supply of Skinny Cow ice cream (4 coupons for free ice cream) to one of my readers! (Thanks so much to Skinny Cow!)

WIN IT!!!

1. Tell me what you do when you are desperate for chocolate.  Please leave me your name and email address also. Do this one first!!!  (If you leave me a comment saying, Enter me - I will delete that enter.  It is my pet peeve when people do not at least read the entry instructions.)

I seem be to be desperate for chocolate way to often:) If I keep it in the house, it is too tempting so I can't. My latest trick is to make myself walk to the store and get a small candy bar. That gives me a two mile walk and limits me to one candy bar.
