Love it, Like it, Hate it: Frozen Novelties

Frozen novelties – those single-serve popsicles, cones, and sandwiches – are booming in popularity.  One big advantage is that it makes it easy to tell exactly what one serving is, but sometimes that one serving can be loaded with more calories than a full-size burger!  In today’s Love it, Like it, Hate it, we’re Getting the Skinny with Molly on the best and worst of frozen novelties!


Love it!

Yasso Greek Yogurt Bar

With 80 calories and 6 grams of protein, it’s the highest among store-bought Greek Yogurt pops.  They do have 12 grams of sugar, although some is naturally-occurring milk and fruit sugars.

Arctic Zero Chocolate Dipped Bars

85 calories per bar, with 3 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber.  The first ingredient after water is whey protein; and they don’t contain any artificial sweeteners or colors.

So Delicious Coconut Milk Fudge Bar Minis

80 calories and 8 grams of sugar per bar, these fudge bars are vegan, dairy-free, and soy-free, making them a good fit for people with food allergies and sensitivities.

Blue Bunny Sweet Freedom No Sugar Added Fudge Lites

Just 35 calories & 5 grams sugar per bar.  The main drawback:  they’re made with maltitol and Splenda.

Hate it!
