Given our esteem for 'scream, we were cautious - to say the least - in our approach to "light" ice cream. After all, ice cream is indulgent; ice cream is the poster child for "all things in moderation". So it couldn’t be "light" and still be good… could it?
Yes, it could; and yes, Trader Joe's Light Vanilla Ice Cream is. It's great, actually. The same folks who make our Super Premium French Vanilla Ice Cream are making this one just for us. These are folks who really know ice cream. And they've figured out how to make great tasting ice cream that has 80% less fat and 55% fewer calories than the French Vanilla. It's made with real milk, cream, and sugar; it's luscious and creamy; and yet, each half-cup serving has only 110 calories and three grams of fat. So go ahead and indulge; throw moderation to the wind; and serve Trader Joe's Light Vanilla Ice Cream anytime and anyplace. We're selling each one quart carton for $3.49, every day. You'll find it in our freezers.
