I'm sorry if this has been discussed before - it certainly should have been! Be warned - low fat icecream is out to get you! A GP recently told me that my cholesterol was a bit high, and one of the recommendations was to have low fat icecream. Now this GP is a good friend of my wife, so immediately I sense a conspiracy. However, we go and buy some 98% fat free icecream. Don't anyone else make the same mistake! It aint icecream! It doesn't scoop - it crumbles. That should be warning enough! It needs semi-defrosting before you can get any implement into it, as it freezes to a rock-hard consition. And the taste? Awful! It requires very large amounts of milo spread on it for it to be edible. We have sampled two brands so far, and they are comparable in the horror of their flavour. So, don't do it! Don't get your cholesterol checked, adn don't eat low-fat icecream!
