Default I found a skinny cow and brought it home.

Yesterday I was at the store with SO, and I thought that I would allow myself a small serving of good chocolate for my birthday "cake".

Then, lo and behold, I found a skinny cow in the freezer section. I was very excited - I had resigned myself to not being able to find it in my small town. So I got a package of the ice cream sandwiches to try, and had one of them for my bday cake.

This store is a little, podunk, small town grocery, but it is the only place in town where I can find FlatOut wraps and now Skinny Cow ice cream. Go figure!

Happy Birthday!!! And congrats on giving yourself the wonderful gift of healthy eating.

I wonder if the owner of the little grocery store is also trying to lose weight and that's why they stock this food? lol!

That is wonderful. I think that it is good business move for that owner to stock items that people watching calories will buy. It will bring you and, quite possibly, your friends to that store. Word gets around in a small town.

And thanks for the giggle I have in my mind someone persuading a skinny ole cow to come down a lane with them to their house! This thought came from your title: I found a skinny cow and brought it home.

Happy Birthday and congrats on finding Skinny Cow!

I have never had the brand, but I want to try it. I have tried Weight Watchers ice cream treats and hated them so I've been scared to try other kinds.

Thanks for the birthday wishes! I'm glad you got a giggle, too. I did find a horse once, but never a skinny cow on four legs!
