I got one the other day and split it between me and the hubbie.   We both agreed it was really good.

I was about to post what @Carmie just did.

 

A Frosty is a thick,soft serve milkshake...thicker than a milkshake, but softer than ice cream. 

 

It has a texture all to it's own which makes it so unique and delectable. 

 

There are some things I just don't want to know the sugar content or the calories~~~


Close your eye when you eat it.  That way the calories don't count.

I wonder if there is a frosty 'hack' somewhere out there.........

 

Maybe we can make our own?  Maybe there is a at home frosty machine available?

'More or less', 'Right or wrong', 'In general', and 'Just thinking out loud ' (as usual).

For what it's worth, I did not take your post as a lecture or telling me what to do.

 

I likely never would have ordered the thing anyway, but seeing the sugar content makes me want it even less.

 

On another note, Chobani makes a zero sugar yogurt in pumpkin spice flavor that is very good.  It only has 60 calories and very low carbs.

 

 


@Witchy Woman 

 

Since I read your comment I have been looking at Chobani in every store I was in.  Nada anywhere.

 

What retailer did you buy this at?

@shoesnbags  You're right, many people aren't concerned.  But I am, and I would be remiss I'd I didn't say something.  People can do what they want but eventually there are consequences.  Our society is laden with diseases that could be significantly reduced if people only paid attention to what they're doing to their bodies via the consumption of sugar.  Sugar feeds cells, including the bad ones. With the increase of sugar consumption there's also a rise in assorted diseases - dementia, Alzheimer's, cancer, heart disease, etc.  


I agree with you @JeanLouiseFinch, my rule is I do not drink my calories.  Everyone says this Frosty is really good but I do not think I have had a Frosty since I was in college.  I am 61 now maybe later I will indulge but for now waiting till Thanksgiving for pumpkin pie.Woman LOL


 

@beckyb1012   @Renata22   @JeanLouiseFinch

 

I also do not drink my calories.   The ONLY exception I made to this was a few months ago, on a very hot day, I had a tall glass of zero sugar root beer with a couple small scoops of light vanilla ice cream in it.  It was the best "light" root beer float I could come up with.

 

And @JeanLouiseFinch  again, thanks for the stats.

 

People can react pretty weird if, heaven forbid, they were given information to be able to make an informed decision.   Like a teenager screaming "don't tell me what to do!".   Why can't they just skip a post with stats without hysterics?  People are strange.  LOL

Most stores carry the regular small cup Chobani, but not ALL of them carry the Zero Sugar variety.  It has 60 calories and fairly low carbs...no artificial sweetener that I have seen.  

 

I've purchased at Walmart, Safeway and Food Lion.

 

Today, Safeway had 10 for $10 which is very reduced.  Also, they had the Pumpkin Spice flavor.  

 

I'm stocked up for awhile Cat LOL

 

I wanted to mention that sometimes the Zero Sugar variety is in a slightly different spot than the regular variety.  At least in the stores I go to.

@Tinkrbl44 

 

Remembered this morning that I have seen this brand at Target, too.  However, I have NOT seen the Pumpkin Spice there or at Walmart.  It seems illusive Cat LOL

 

However, when I cannot find it, I just get Vanilla and add some pumpkin pie spice.

 

You can find larger containers of the Zero Sugar now and then, but I try to limit myself to the smaller cups.  If I have a huge container, I end up eating way too much Cat LOL

 

Hope you can find it...it's my favorite healthy treat!

@Tinkrbl44  & @Witchy Woman Besides the usual vanilla and berriy types, we found Chobani Zero Sugar Yogurt at Walmart the other day. No pumpkin there either, but I did find toasted coconut, which is right up my alley, and a new one, to us, cookies & cream, which is probably the closest we'll ever get to an Oreo.  LOL

@JeanLouiseFinch 

 

Target seems to have a steady supply, but the Walmarts near me don't carry it often.  I suspect there is not a great demand for it.   When I find it, I try to stock up Cat LOL

 

I just had some vanilla with baked apples...and lots of spice added.

 

Yummy!

 

I enjoy any flavor of this yogurt and it favorite indulgence.  Thankfully, no negatives that I can find.

@JeanLouiseFinch  So you feel it is your responsibility to tell other people what is bad for them and what they shouldn't eat. I think people know all this but choose to eat as they please. Not everyone is stupid. 


@proudlyfromNJ ITA The most "holier than thou" people are ex-smokers and reformed foodaholics. People can make their own choices.


The posts are getting more and more dramatic.  The OP is simply expressing an opinion. She then backed it up with facts and a visual. What’s the problem?

 

Where did she say, “people couldn’t make their own choices”?
