SO question for you all...I found these ice cream bars called "sweet freedom" and they are low carb and low sugar. Do you think these would be an acceptable treat if I stay within the 100 calorie sweet rule?

Please post the actual ingredients. They may have some "naughties".

Look OK to me. Malitol has a bad effect on some people though.

Maltitol is a red-flag for diabetics. It's a sugar alcohol (anything ending in TOL). It isn't absorbed the same way as sugar, so getting the proper carb/insulin ratio is sometimes compromised. At least this is my understanding from my dietitian.

I'm thrilled that these don't seem to be completely terrible to you guys, because they are amazing! Maybe a once a week (maybe twice) treat.

Thanks guys!

These confuse me. When I looked for them online it looked like they were coated with chocolate but the ingredients don't reflect any kind of coating. so weird

They are coated in some kind of chocolate shell...not sure which ingradients reflect this.

I use to eat these, the vanilla were better than the chocolate. But then I just can't get past the fake flavor taste. So, I decided, I will have a scope of regular ice cream once in awhile instead of those unknown ingredients. Too many chemicals.

Anything with that many ingredients cant be that good for you :(
