They have a pretty strong coconut flavor and a bit of texture, that I liked. I had my 6 year old try them with me, and he liked them too (he is VERY picky).
One bars has 1 gram of sugar and 17 grams of carbs. And get this... 7 grams of fiber! Cha-Ching. That gives it an S/C Value of 1/1, perfect for dessert. How does it get its sugar count so low without using artificial sweeteners? It relies on Sugar Alcohols, specifically erythritol, and stevia.
I encourage you to research sugar alcohols on your own by reading more on them. HERE is a good place to start and remember they can upset your stomach and even stall weight loss in many people. However Jorge Cruise encourages their use on the Belly Fat Cure diet plan. I, myself, have sugar alcohols only in very limited amounts (ie. once a week or less).
Turtle Mountain, the creators of So Delicious products, have a store locator on their site. But they have several different products, so you aren't guaranteed that they will have this ice cream. They also have a Fudge Bar version of the Minis with an even better S/C Value and a few other ice creams I will be reviewing later. Be sure and check each product's nutrition label and pick their NO SUGAR ADDED options.
