Houston is finally settling into fall with some cool(er) weather...JUST KIDDING! WHY IS IT STILL 90 DEGREES??
Let's try that again: because summer in Houston this year will apparently be lasting through November, I am still actively craving ice cream even though my Halloween decorations have been up for a full two weeks.
The "problem", however, is that I have already moved on to binging on "fun size" Snickers bars I bought in preparation for trick-or-treaters, so I have been trying to balance this influx of calories by eating other desserts in moderation.
Lucky for me I ran into Dreyer's Slow-Churned pumpkin ice cream at Kroger this weekend. For those unfamiliar with the Dreyer's family of products, their "Slow Churned" line has significantly less fat and calories than their regular ice cream.
What's remarkable about Dreyer's "pumpkin patch" is not only its pungent pumpkin flavor, but also its consistently creamy texture. The latter feature is often lacking in "lite" ice creams.
Fantastic! Now I can have my candy bars and my triple-scoop ice cream cone, too.
