Edy's Slow Churned Ice Ceam - A Reason to Smile!

I love ice cream. It is one of the foods I am finding hard to give up because I am trying to get healthy and lose weight. I don't think I can give it completely so I have had to find ice cream that is better for me.

I recently had the opportunity to try Edy's Slow Churned ice cream. I have tried the regular Edy's and love it but this was the first time I tried the slow churned. I tried the Vanilla and it was delicious!

It was creamy and rich. The best part is that Edy's Slow Churned has half the fat and one-third fewer calories of the regular ice cream. So that means I can eat the same amount and still feel good about eating ice cream. I even had hubby try it and he liked it as well. He had no idea it was lower in calories.

Edy's Slow Churned is available in 20 flavors which allows you to choose your favorite. I know the next time I buy some Edy's I will making a beeline for the Rocky Road! It does give me a reason to smile.

Check out the Edy's Facebook page because this summer Edy's has partnered with actress and model Brooke Burke to give away more than 25,000 free scoops of ice cream…turning scoops into smiles. For every “ice cream smile” photo uploaded to Edy’s Facebook page, $5 will be donated to Operation Smile, an international children’s medical charity.

Operation Smile helps provide reconstructive surgery to children around the world suffering from cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities. I have read about Operation Smile and believe that it is a worthwhile cause.

The goal is to give away more than 25,000 scoops of ice cream, capture 25,000 photos of ice cream smiles before summer’s end. Of the photos submitted, ten lucky smiles will be featured in a Edy’s Slow Churned print ad. One lucky picture will win a coveted spot on the cartons of a Slow Churned limited-edition flavor, being re-introduced to store shelves in early 2013. That is awesome!

Did you know that West of the Rockies, this ice cream is marketed under the Dreyer’s brand name. East of the Rockies, it is marketed under the Edy’s brand name. So you can visit either the Edy's Facebook page or the Dreyer's Facebook page to enter your ice cream smile!!

I know I am smiling because I get to eat delicious ice cream and not feel that guilty about it! So if you want delicious ice cream with less calories then you should give Edy's Slow Churned a try!

Disclosure: “I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Dreyer’s / Edy’s. I received a coupon to purchase product samples and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.”
