(Editorâ€™s Note: I was going to do a review about Valentineâ€™s Day today, but I found a product that could actually help me get a Valentine, if their commercial is accurate. Iâ€™ll review it tomorrow and let you know if it worked. No, itâ€™s not pheromones.
So instead of a Valentineâ€™s Day review, today you get another low-carb product review. Yeah!)
When items are labeled â€œReduced for Quick Sale,â€ there are probably several reasons why: (1) Expiration date is coming up. (2) Item has been discontinued. (3) The product isnâ€™t selling well. (4) The packaging has been damaged. (5) Item was returned. (6) Itâ€™s crap and it totally blows. (7) Product is endorsed by Seymour Smith. Who? Exactly. (8) Possible store employee practical joke on customers involving bodily fluids being added to the product.
When I pulled out a pint of Keto Vanilla Moon Super Premium Ice Cream from the freezer case at the national grocery store chain I shop at, I picked it up because of the â€œReduced for Quick Saleâ€ price tag hanging from the shelf.
I inspected it to see which of the reasons above was the cause for the â€œReduced for Quick Saleâ€ tag. Unfortunately, I couldnâ€™t tell, but my money was on reason number six because of the three words printed repeatedly on the lid, â€œThe Low Carb Leader.â€
Now boys and girls, what have we learned about low-carb foods?
Letâ€™s say it all together.
â€œTheyâ€™re crap, they totally blow, and theyâ€™re a waste of money.â€
However, after reading the packaging more thoroughly, I thought the Keto Vanilla Moon might taste better than other low-carb foods because it had the same high levels of saturated fat and cholesterol than regular ice cream.
Well just like my Super Bowl pick, my presidential election pick, and my pick to win Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards, I was totally wrong. Despite all the fat and cholesterol, it didnâ€™t taste very good. It sort of tasted like Cool Whip…Lite, and I think Iâ€™m being a little generous by saying that.
After I read the package even more thoroughly, I found out the Keto Vanilla Moon was also high in dietary fiber. Um, correct me if Iâ€™m wrong, but the last time I checked, ice cream didnâ€™t aid with bowel movements, unless youâ€™re lactose intolerant, then it REALLY helps with bowel movements.
But itâ€™s good to know that I can get fiber in ways other than Metamucil, whole-grain bread, and a Taco Bell bean burrito.
I wanted to find out more about Keto, but unfortunately it turned out that theyâ€™re no longer in business. So I guess that explained why the Keto Super Premium Ice Cream was labeled â€œReduced for Quick Sale.â€
Iâ€™ll have to add to my list, â€œ(9) Company no longer in business.â€
So if youâ€™re interested in trying Keto Super Premium Ice Cream, get yours now, because once theyâ€™re gone, theyâ€™re gone forever.
