Low fat, low calorie, taste the same?
That's kinda too good to be true man. I was rather curious at the thought of a "healthier" ice cream and stepped in to give it a try. They look no less like the full fat, high sugar ones like the others, all creamy and colorful in their oblong metal tins chilling.
They have quite a few flavors, from pulut hitam to dark chocolate and such. I got the cookies and cream and chocolate one to share and it was sooo good. Practically NO difference from the full fat ones. I couldn't and cannot believe it still actually.
I even wanted to get some back home to put on my waffles bread and anything I can slap this healthier ice cream one. But I resisted. How healthy can ice cream be? I still have my doubts.

A less guilty pleasure
I've always loved ice cream, but because I don't want to add unnecessary inches to my waistline, I've had to limit myself, and only eat it on special occasions. One day, I saw an advertisement for Sugalight, oddly, in a Vet Centre. I was bringing my dog in for a check-up, and while waiting, chanced upon the poster and became immediately interested.
Following the visit to the vet, I brought my dog home and went to Sugalight. I was amazed at the array of flavours, including some local favourites like the Pulut Hitam one. I am a fan of green tea, and so I definitely had to try to Matcha Green Tea flavour. I also tried to Bailey's Irish Cream because Bailey's ice cream always hits me in the right places. I was pleasantly surprised to find the ice cream tasting normal, despite there being less calories in my cup. It was a great experience and I'll definitely go back to try other flavours next time.
