         Product Of The Month
Our product review team features two (2) "Products Of The Month" one in each issue of
our magazine. These products will be the group consensus of those we find to be the
most innovative, healthy, tasty, and/or helpful to the low-carber's daily dietary regime.

LeCarb Frozen Desserts!

LeCarb Frozen Dessert I believe we've received more emails with recommendations for this product than any other this year. We were intrigued from the first time we heard rumors of a new very low carb ice cream that didn't contain sugar alcohols OR aspartame... and comes right in your grocer's freezer case!

They now have national distribution through WalMart Supercenters, and most of our local grocers carry it as well. So check to see where in your area you can get this new must-have treat.

LeCarb Frozen Dessert come in convenient little one-pint containers (Ben & Jerry style.) They're sugar free ice creams that are sweetened with Splenda and use glycerin to stay 'scoopable' and of proper consistency. And they've really done it. This is delicious stuff people. They come in seven varieties: Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry, Lemon, Cinnamon, Homemade Vanilla, and Chocolate Almond.

A regular serving is 1/2 cup and it comes in at 6 total carbs, with 3 of them being from glycerin, so if you're like me and glycerin causes no reaction in you, count 3 carbs. If you are counting glycerin, 6 carbs is still a great bargain for this delicious and so convenient treat.
LeCarb Frozen Dessert
Our favorite by far is the Chocolate Almond. It's so good, it's a guilty pleasure. Then there's the Lemon... super lemony, yet refreshing and just the right creaminess. Next up is a tie between Chocolate and Cinnamon. The Cinnamon is a heady combination of spice and rich cream. It should be absolute perfection over your holiday pumpkin desserts this season. The Strawberry is also amazing, tasting nearly identical to commercial strawberry ice cream. But all flavors are good with not a hint of aftertaste or "fake" taste.

We strongly recommend the new LeCarb frozen desserts. It feels like you're cheating. But you're not. Just enjoy!
