How Fattening Is Ben & Jerry's?

How Fattening Is Ben & Jerry's?

What would Summer be without ice cream? I know that eating that sweet creamy coldness every day wouldn't be the healthiest move, but every once in a while I've got to splurge. Ben & Jerry's is a popular brand because their ice cream is so scrumptious. It's made with real cream, eggs, and chunks of candy, but how bad for you is it? Take this quiz to find out.

Mmm ben and jerrys is deelish. But i hate when people check how fattening this is - i mean i hope people aren't eating it so often that it actually matters?! This should be a treat, like candy and chips and all that kinda stuff.

I don't even really like Ben & Jerry's. We have one in our city and I do admire their employment practices though. My sister is working at this cute little general store and their ice cream is to die for!!!

I forgot to mention how much I ADORE Ben & Jerry's! I always buy the Frozen Yogurt version of my favorite flavors (less calorie/fat damage) however there are some flavors that I do not mind splurging on. :drool: My father is the one that got me hooked on Cherry Garcia ice cream when I was 3 or 4 yrs old. So whenever I have that flavor it reminds me of being a little kid. :P

2/4. I was only slightly off when it came to the calorie count on questions 1 & 4 so I don't feel so bad about failing this quiz,lol. I was correct on 2 and 3!

I think the real question is, how DELICIOUS is Ben & Jerry's? The answer, I've found, is VERY.

B&J is really expensive but my mom is from New England and we go there every year and besides mom and pop shops they are ice cream 'king'. And every year I go up there to visit I have to stop and get some light half-backed!

Bahahaha. I missed 2, but I don't even care because I love this stuff too much! Cake Batter[new] is awesome! I bought them out at Harris Teeter~!

I don't eat Ben and Jerry's. In fact, I don't eat ice cream in general. I don't like the saturated fat.

I used to buy a pint once in a while but it was very hard not to eat at least half a carton at a time. Then of course you finish it off the very next day! The last time I ate it we stopped by the store and I had the smallest cup the serve. You can't be tempted to eat more that way :)

I suck at these quizzes because I never eat ice cream, frozen yogurt, Skinny Cow or any of that stuff. Snack foods are evil. Period.

jajaja. "I know you wouldn't do this, but if you ate an entire pint of Vanilla Heath Bar Crunch how many calories would you be eating?" confession: i do this all the time. if i buy a ben and jerry's i CAN'T STOP at just one serving. jajaj..

half-bake*D* !! oh, and now my score is right on the board. how strange.
javsmav javsmav 8 years
wait, I got all the questions right and at the top it says my score is 100%, but then I'm listed as 75% on the Top Scorers. hmm... I love B&J, but I would only buy low-fat or frozen yogurt (half-bakes is my fave!) Now that I'm vegan at home, I never buy it--which is good. just eating a 1/4 cup of that delicious stuff is so hard!

I totally agree about the ice cream in the house is too tempting thing so I avoid having it too. But what I do keep around for "treats" is the B&J Half-Baked Frozen Yogurt- it's only 180cal/3g for 1/4pint so you have to stick to that serving size but it's enough to keep me from ever wanting real full-fat ice cream. They have lots of other frozen yogurt flavors too! The half-baked has some serious cookie-dough and brownie chunks for those who know they can't resist that.

I never keep ice cream in the freezer, but recently since it's summer, I'll usually just have a 40-cal sugar free fudgecicle, a 100-calorie pina colada fruit bar or one of those Skinny Cow mint/chocolate bars that are only 80 cal. I don't feel too guilty after those, and the fudgecicles I buy have quite a lot of calcium in them.

I am not usually an ice cream fan, but I have been on a chocolate peanutbutter haagen daas kick...I have decided that I am only allowed to by one pint during PMS...and it has to last me till my cravings are gone lol. Ordinarily I head over to McDonald's...although not as tasty as B&J, it's only 150 cal and i wanna say 4.5 g of fat for a cone. IF I have calories left for the day, I will def go get one! mmmm
