I recently had the pleasure of being asked to review Lovin’ Scoopful ice cream, a product I was extremely interested in not only because of my love of ice cream but because the company donates 25% ($50,000 minimum annually) of its post-tax profits to the Special Olympics. Full disclosure: I received two coupons for free ice cream, a t-shirt and some $1.00 coupons.
As most of my readers know, I live in Los Angeles and you would think it would be easy enough to find this ice cream. Once I had my free coupons in hand, I roamed every Albertson’s and Ralph’s searching for it to no avail. I was starting to get a little desperate for ice cream when I finally found it at the Albertson’s on Central and Chevy Chase in Glendale. I was really drooling and looking forward to the Raspberry Cheesecake flavor but the market I found it at only carried chocolate and vanilla so that’s what I got.
I was expecting a not so creamy, kinda diet flavor in the ice cream given it has half the calories but was absolutely blown away by the rich, creaminess to it as well as a luscious taste. There were some incredibly happy people in my household. We want more!! We’re dying to try the other flavors and are begging our local markets to carry the brand and more than just chocolate and vanilla. Raspberry Cheesecake please!
I highly recommend the ice cream if you can find it. It not only tastes great and is less calories for your hips, but it’s ice cream for a cause and a good one. Think of it as socially responsible ice cream. You’re not cheating on your diet, you’re helping your community.
