Lightbulb Thin Ice

Has anyone tried Thin Ice? It's a malt beverage that's only 1g carb. Does anyone know where I can get it? I live in the Chicago area.


Thanks,

Real

It's a beer? What is the nutritional content? ....just asking for a friend, of course!

Whoops! Just checked!
OMG! It's made by Molson, a Canadian company! Wouldn't you know it.
Do an advanced google search with all key words "beer thin ice locations" to find a supplier near you.

Nutritional count looks good - unless there are sugar alcohols.

Making a note for summer - if we ever get summer!

Tried it. Have it in the fridge. LOVE IT!!! It's very similar to Zima or Schmirnoff Ice and tastes wonderful! They use Splenda to sweeten it so it's a true 1 carb per bottle. (none of that sugar alcohol crap!) Go to www.drinkthinice.com and there's a link so you can see if they distribute in your state

Very cool find! I will have to pick some up for this weekend.

Is there anything wrong with LC beer, such a Michilobe (sp?) Ultra? I realize there is no nutritional content but will it hurt the scale?

What about other alchohol? Bacardi has a new commercial urging people to drink Bacardi with diet soda, claiming no carbs. I remember when I first did Atkins back in my college days I took shots every weekend and dropped 30 pounds in three weeks. I don't drink hard liquor much anymore, but it is still "nice to know"

Thanks!

There are no carbs in distilled alcohol. So brandy, scotch, gin, vodka, whisky, rum, tequila - all no carbs. If you get flavored stuff like Malibu rum, there's tons of sugar there.

The only real reason to be wary of alcohol (not that I'm a good example) is that it slows you down. Our bodies will burn alcohol before any other fuel. So when you have a drink, your body will stop burning fat long enough to burn off the alcohol.

Great, thanks! I'll pass the info off to my fiance too. He likes to drink brandy.

I guess it's not bad if you have an occassional drink.
