I don't see Peppermint on the list!

I was browsing around on MSN to see what the latest news stories are. I feel out of the loop when I don't have my own TV to scan and see what is going on in the world.

The first article that caught my eye was from Newsweek, "The Most Fattening Ice Cream Flavors"! I was debating whether or not to click ... because those of you that know me, know that I LOVE ice cream! I'll eat just about every flavor, so long as it doesn't taste like coffee at all. I didn't want to find any of my favorites on the list. :(

I got lucky! One of my very favorite flavors is Blue Bell Peppermint, and it's a good thing that it's only out during the holiday season, or I'd be eating it for 3 meals a day, every day!

Anyhoo ... here's the list. Are your favorites on here?

  • 1. Häagen-Dazs Chocolate Peanut Butter (360 calories, 24 grams of fat). Look out for nuts and chocolate: the most fattening flavors tend to be loaded with both.
  • 2. Ben and Jerry's Chubby Hubby (330 calories, 20 grams of fat). Vanilla ice cream with fudge and peanut butter swirls, plus fudge covered peanut
  • 3. Häagen-Dazs Butter Pecan (310 calories, 23 grams of fat). It's one of the most popular flavors, but the abundance of pecans also makes it one of the fattiest.
  • 4. Sheer Bliss Pomegranate with chocolate chips (320 calories, 20 grams fat). Yes, pomegranate juice is good for you. But don't be fooled by the name: cream, milk and sugar are the first three ingredients in this decadent concoction.
  • 5. Ben and Jerry's Vermonty Python (300 calories, 19 grams of fat). Coffee ice cream with chocolate cookie crumbs and fudge "cows." Moo.
  • 6. Coldstone Cookie Batter (300 calories, 16 grams of fat). The cookie batter mix includes molasses and brown sugar as well as flour, adding calories along with richness. Note that the smallest "Like It" serving size is bigger than a half cup; it has 380 calories and 20 grams of fat. The "Love it" portion is a full cup.

Pin It!
