I just received four new Arctic Zero spring flavors in the mail! Here is my full review on each of the flavors I received and what I think about each one.
Good Morning ya’ll! Happy (almost) spring! Here in Colorado, the spring time teases us in about February and it’ll starts to warm up and then we will see random blizzard snow storms all the way until May hits. But this week, it’s certainly felt like spring! (Besides the fact that everything is still dead from the last snow storm we had).
Last year around this time, the Arctic Zero team was kind enough to send me a few of their new Frozen Dessert flavors to try. This year, they’ve come out with some new spring flavors, so we will be going over those in this post.
If you didn’t get to read my first flavor review of the Arctic Zero Frozen Desserts, go back and read this post first.
We covered a few things in that post about what Arctic Zero does, who they are, and a little bit about their products.
All of their Frozen Dessert flavors are gluten free, lactose free, non-GMO, low glycemic, low calorie and high in protein and fiber. They use whey protein concentrate as their main ingredient, and filter it so that it’s lactose free. They also use two types of fiber; chicory root (soluble fiber that works to stabilize blood sugar levels), and sugarcane fiber (helps to aid in digestion). All flavors used in the frozen desserts to give them their taste are natural and plant-based – no MSG or HVP.
On a quick side note: I love their packaging. I’m a packaging freak. It must be my graphic design background but I think it is SO cute. The packaging doesn’t matter in the long run – it’s all about what’s INSIDE the packaging that matters, but I’m like 110% more likely to buy something that has cute packaging. Juss sayinnn’.
Another side note: I may refer to the Frozen Dessert as “ice cream” throughout this post for the purpose of explanation. But just to be clear, it’s not “ice cream”.
CHERRY CHOCOLATE CHUNK
Normally I’m the kind of girl that either likes fruity flavors OR chocolate flavors – but not both together. Like when I go and get frozen yogurt down the street, I have to first decide what kind of day it’s going to be…either a fruity day, or a chocolatey day. But you won’t find me mixing the two flavors in one cup.
This flavor actually caught me off guard. I was expecting it to be a chocolatey, creamy consistency with cherry swirled in, but it actually is more more like a cherry/vanilla sherbet with chunks of cherries and dark chocolate. The only part of it that’s chocolate is the chunks, there’s no chocolate ice cream itself swirled in which I expected.
I actually really liked this! It felt more like frozen fruity yogurt and reminded me a lot of the cherry Yoplait yogurt that you can buy at the grocery store because of the chunks of cherry in it. I’m not even going to lie I thought I wasn’t going to like this one at all, but I definitely was pleasantly surprised! Definitely a good one!
PEANUT BUTTER SWIRL
Now, if you know anything about me – you’ll probably know two things… I love nude lipsticks, and I hate peanut butter mixed with other things. When I was going through prep for my last bikini show, I’d have cravings for anything in site including peanut buttery “stuff” – but that’s a special circumstance. This flavor didn’t particularly speak to me, but I did give it a try. It’s definitely very peanut buttery. I couldn’t taste much of the “swirl” – but I’m also biased because anything mixed with peanut butter in my mind just tastes like straight peanut butter. It always takes over.
I think that if you love (or even like) peanut butter, you’d really like this. I just can’t wrap my mind around a peanut butter ice cream. But if you’re a peanut butter die-hard, give this one a try!
ROCKY ROAD TRIP
This was probably my favorite flavor of the bunch. Can you guess why? Yes, chocolate is my favorite. I also really like the “chunky” flavors and this one is awesome. I definitely recommend leaving all of the pints out on the counter for a few minutes, or sticking them in the microwave for 30 seconds before eating them. They become less icy and more creamy. This flavor has little bits of marshmallow and almond mixed in and even the chocolate flavor by itself is great.
CAKE BATTER BAR
In my last review of the yellow cake Arctic Zero flavor (which you can read here), I mentioned I wasn’t the biggest fan. It felt like a flat flavor, and very “yellow”… The bars themselves are the yellow cake flavor of the regular Arctic Zero, dipped in a red velvet coating. While I wouldn’t necessarily go out and re-purchase the yellow cake flavored pint, I would, however repurchase these bars! I really liked them! The red velvet taste mixed with the yellow cake flavor made them wayyyyy better in my opinion.
If you want to check out Arctic Zero’s other flavors, click here. They have creamy pints, chunky pints, and more flavors of the bars. I’m dying to try the Cookie Shake and Cookie Dough Chip pints and the Mint Chocolate bars!!
I hope you all enjoyed this little review introducing the new Arctic Zero flavors! If you want to read more about Arctic Zero and the brand themselves, click here.
