Glazed. Donut. Ice. Cream.
How have the big ice cream confectioners not thought of this creative mash-up of flavors until today?
This concoction was lauded profusely by Editor-In-Chief Elie Ayrouth, who busted into the FOODBEAST office gushing “Glazed Donut ice cream exists!” and “Dude, it tastes like a glazed donut!” as he shoved a pint into the face of Reach Guinto, FOODBEAST’s Managing Editor.
This flavor, which is one of five recently revealed by ENLIGHTENED Ice Cream, is a spark of imagination and ambition, to say the least.
Built on a philosophy of “more protein, less sugar,” ENLIGHTENED has created a line up of more than 25 dope flavors that all manage the balance of incredible taste while remaining in the low-cal spectrum, with some flavors containing as few as 300 calories per pint.
If there’s one thing you should know about ENLIGHTENED, it’s that they don’t skimp on the mix-ins. They’re not afraid to go beyond the basic “low cal” ice cream to get you the truly awesome flavor you crave plus extra protein and way less sugar than a traditional scoop.
FOODBEAST has kept a close eye on ice cream trends, so it was only natural for Elie to grab the entire lineup of ENLIGHTENED flavors for the staff to try out.
“It was the closest to real ice cream compared to other low calorie competitors,” Reach assessed after nearly polishing off a pint. “It was creamier and smoother. Movie Night was my favorite flavor—it really captured the buttery popcorn taste.”
The Glazed Donut flavor is just one of five new ENLIGHTENED flavors, the others being Movie Night (buttered popcorn ice cream, chocolate bits, and caramel sauce), French Toast, Cookies & Cream, and S’mores.
FOODBEAST staff writer and ice cream connoisseur Isai Rocha said he usually stays away from “low calorie” ice creams because he doesn’t enjoy the “low cal” after-taste, but was pleasantly surprised after trying ENLIGHTENED.
“The Movie Night flavor tripped me out, because it actually smelled like buttery popcorn from the theater,” he explained.
For those of you looking to track down some of these awesome flavors to stock your home freezer with, ENLIGHTENED is available at major grocery retailers like Sprouts, Vons, and Albertsons. Check out their store locator to find ENLIGHTENED near you.
