ice cream truckIts that time of year, soon you will be hearing the childhood sounds of the ice cream truck coming down the road, we all know its really irresistible. So the real problem is which one to chose??? Well in the June 2013 issue of Shape Magazine they give us the "Skinny on Ice Cream Truck Treats" so I thought I would write a short post about it and give you the "skinny" on some of your favorite treats!

So here it goes. The favorite Drumstick (calculated by nutrition provided by Nestle) in the "notches" world this works out as follow" 4 Protein, 33 Carbs, 16 Fat and 2 Fiber which works out to be a whopping 8 Notches!!

Now we have the Fudgsicle (calculated by nutrition provided by Popsicle) in the "notches" world this works out to be 1 Protein, 12 Carbs, 1.5 Fat and 1 fiber, this is only 2 Notches!

Next is the Strawberry Shortcake Popsicle (calculated by nutrition provided by Good Humor), 2 Proteins, 32 Carbs, 10 Fat and 1 fiber which works out to 6 Notches!

The Ice Cream Sandwich (calculated by nutrition provided by Blue Bunny) 3 Protein, 25 Carbs, 3 Fat and 0 Fiber works out to 4 Notches!

The Creamsicle (calculated by nutrition provided by Popscile) has 1 Protein, 20 Carbs, 2 fat and 0 fiber works out to be 3 Notches!

So there you have the breakdown of some of your favorite treats! The next time the ice cream truck comes down your street there is no reason to ignore it as long as you have enough points to support your treat! ENJOY!!
