Get your last licks of summer right here! 

Summer days may have drifted away… but those ice cream cravings, those can be really hard to shake! A satisfying scoop of full-fat ice cream can set you back 250 calories alone, so if you’re going to indulge in a frozen treat, you might as well do it right. Your options: ice cream, gelato, sorbet, shaved ice, frozen yogurt, Greek frozen yogurt?! If there’s a Greek version of froyo, that MUST be the right choice, right? WRONG! Not when Enlightened is an option anyway.

Being in the fiber-diet business, Enlightened’s Sea Salt Caramel Ice Cream Bar ignites our interest with the 5 extra grams of fiber eating one will get you – especially when you compare that to the less-than-trace amounts of fiber in Yasso’s Sea Salt Caramel yogurt bar. But that’s not the only reason you should Factor-In Enlightened’s bars. Enlightened’s frozen treats (they have ice cream pints too!) are sweetened with erythritol, which is a sugar alcohol that helps keep the sugar-content low. As a result, Enlightened’s Sea Salt Caramel bar has almost 70% less sugar than Yasso’s identically-flavored Frozen Greek Yogurt Bar. 

And if all that still hasn’t convinced you, might we note that at 20 calories less, this Enlightened bar still has 2 more grams of protein than the Greek yogurt bar too?! That’s 7 grams of protein in total! Enlightened’s frozen treats will not only satisfy the most sinful hunger pangs, but keep you feeling full for hours too.  

Salty, yet sweet there is one last thing that makes this treat super neat–because these are individually-packaged bars, they’re portioned for you. No guess work necessary, no tempting “one last spoonfuls”. Perfectly portioned packages safeguard you from accidentally eating an entire pint. It’s like insurance for ice cream! The last licks of summer are upon us, make those last licks count with Enlightened.
