It’s time for another What’s Sugar Free at the Grocery Store post where we pick one section of the grocery store and look at every item to see what contains no added sugar. This week we are looking at the Ice Cream aisle for the primary reason that if I’m going to have a little treat, it’s probably going to be ice cream. Memories of me sitting at the kitchen table sharing a bowl of Blue Bell with my Grandpa are etched strongly on my psyche and so ice cream has kind of become my go-to snack.
Please keep in mind that I’m in no way saying that these are products are so healthy that you can have a bowl every night and not see weight gain. I’m just saying that if you are going to buy some ice cream for you or your family, you might be better off buying one of the varieties below. Also the sugar replacements are listed next to the items so you can compare it to our good and bad list of sugars and sugar substitutes.
