Well… not really.
I bought some Edy’s pumpkin ice cream.
The ice cream does have actual pumpkin in it. And it’s really not that bad for you… by my standards as far as ice cream goes.
INGREDIENTS: milk, skim milk, cream, sugar, corn syrup, pumpkin, whey protein, egg yolks, tapioca maltodextrin, spices (cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger), salt, cellulose gum, mono and diglycerides, citric acid, Yellow #6, guar gum, carrageenan, dextrose, vitamin A palmitate
So, there may be more sugar in it than pumpkin, but oh well. It’s a yummy holiday dessert. And it only has 12 grams of sugar per half cup serving. Not so bad when most ice creams have close to 30 grams of sugar per 1/2 cup. Mr. Triathlete doesn’t like it much because he says it tastes “eggy”. I like to add graham cracker goldfish in it, or eating it plain is pretty good.
