I applied through Mom’s Meet Ambassador program to try Arctic Zero’s Frozen Desserts and share it with others. I’m pleased that I was selected to participate in this campaign.
About the Creator
As a child, ARCTIC ZERO founder, Greg Holtman, vividly remembers caring for his mother–a type-1 diabetic. While Greg and his family loved sweets, especially ice cream, most desserts at the time contained artificial sweeteners and ingredients.
Unwilling to compromise between indulging his sweet tooth and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, Greg set out to craft a functional, yet indulgent, dessert with premium ingredients. After years of recipe tinkering using ingredients you can understand®, ARCTIC ZERO was born – a line of Fit Frozen Desserts with zero compromises. (“ARCTIC ZERO Fit Frozen Desserts Is A Healthy Ice Cream Alternative”)
Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes are different
Greg’s commitment to create a healthy dessert really hits home for me and my family. It has been two years since my daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes, which means that her pancreas no longer makes insulin to break down sugar in her blood stream. Type 1 Diabetes is an auto immune disease where a person’s pancreas has shut down and stop working. On the other hand, Type 2 diabetes is a different disease with a similar name. With Type 2, a person’s pancreas still makes insulin but for health related issues their body is not using the insulin effectively.
A Dessert that Diabetics Can Enjoy
Whenever my daughter eats food, she has to count the amount of carbohydrates she consumes so she knows how much insulin to take. A lot of social activities revolve around food so as you can imagine, having a young child living with Type 1 diabetes I worry a little about how much sugar she will be offered whenever she’s invited to a party or a social event. While she doesn’t get invited too often, when she does, I try to bring healthy foods that she can eat along with us so she never feels left out.
Some sweet desserts like cake, pie, and ice cream spike her blood glucose levels so we usually try to stick with fresh fruits and vegetables in her diet. In fact, berries are usually low on the glycemic index, so we occasionally incorporate them into her meals so she can enjoy something sweet. Processed foods can be challenging for her to consume so I was thrilled to have an opportunity to try a product developed by the loved one of someone with type one diabetes.
About Arctic Zero
The frozen dessert is similar to ice cream but doesn’t have the same thickness or texture. If you’ve ever tried sherbet or lactose-free ice cream made from soy milk or coconut milk those desserts are more comparable. The ice cream is more like a frozen smoothie. Still cold, sweet, and tasty, but less creamy than an actual diary product.
Arctic Zero A Hit For All Kids
I invited some of my friends and their families to try it with us. We all loved them. In fact, none of the kids realized that it was different from regular ice cream.
I, on the other hand, was well aware that the taste was different from ice cream I grow up eating. However, I still enjoyed it. The Arctic Zero started melting fast so it was easy for us to scoop into cones and enjoy.
Overall, I liked each flavor. I purchased all 3 Arctic Zero flavors (Salted Caramel, Cherry Chocolate Chunk, and Brownie Blast) that my Target carried. For a hot summer day treat, they were yummy.
- The product is Non-GMO. Lactose-Free. RBST free. And Kosher.
