Enlightened Movie Night | Summer blockbuster or total flop?

Let’s all go to the freezer, and grab
ourselves a snack. I’m gonna review
Enlightened’s Movie Night, starting now. Hey, guys. Welcome to A.D. Keto. My name is
Aaron. This is the channel where you can watch a weird dad work his way through the
ketogenic diet. I do some keto food vlogs,
I do some keto product reviews, and I do some
keto recipes. If this is your first time

So guys, I finally found this. I have seen
people with this — I’ve seen pictures of
people eating this, saying that it’s good,
but I have not been able to find it. It
is Enlightened’s Movie Night. I’m gonna
check it out. If you’ve been here before,
you’ll know that I’d break my ice cream
reviews down into three parts. The first
part is the texture. What’s the texture feel like? And I’ve
started to go with 20 minutes as my
baseline for how long I let pints sit out
before digging in. So it’s been about 20
minutes since I went to the freezer and
grabbed this guy. It’s been sitting here waiting for me as
I scooped cat poop. Just thought I’d let
you know. The next part of the review is
the flavor. How does it taste, based on
what my expectations are? This has got a
cool little popcorn there on the on the
cover. I’m assuming this is gonna taste
like buttered popcorn. I could be
mistaken.
We’ll see. And then the third part is the
carbs. Can I throw this whole pint back
if I wanted to? We’ll see.
So Enlightened’s Movie Night. Yep, they tell
me to let it soften, which I’ve done. It’s
been about 20 minutes. It says here on
the back: “Movie Night is buttery popcorn
ice cream with chocolate bits of swirls
and caramel. Oh! The caramel I was not
expecting. There it is.
That’s pretty. Got a spoon. I’m gonna dig
in, here.
Let me just try to adjust my my aperture,
here. It’s a little bright. There we go.
Now you can see it. A little chunky,
although not too bad.
And… l’ll just change this back.
It’s a little little chunky around the
edges. About what I’ve come to expect
from Enlightened. They are…Enlightened
does seem to take a long time to soften
up. OK. I’m not tasting popcorn. I know I
was fully expecting like, a buttery
popcorn flavor. I feel like the caramel
overpowers it a little bit. One more bite.
Interesting. It’s okay. It’s sweet. It’s not
the most appropriate name. It doesn’t taste
a whole lot like popcorn or butter to me. The caramel really is the overpowering
flavor. But, that said, pretty good. I’m
just not… it’s like caramel swirl is kind
of what I’m tasting here. At any rate, let
me read you the nutrition information.
We’ve got 18 total carbs per serving, four
carb… I’m sorry. Carbs. Four servings per
container. 18 grams of carbs, 5 dietary
fiber, six erythritol. So 7 grams of net
carbs per serving. That’s 28 grams of
carbs per pint. This… the fancier flavors
I have found tend to be up there in
carbs. This is 28 grams of net carbs per
pint. Getting kind of high. One more bite
here, because I…
Yeah. All I really taste is the caramel. I
actually was planning on sneaking this
in to Avengers: Infinity War, because it
takes such a long time to soften up, I
was like, “Yeah, you know what? By the time the post-credit scenes roll, I might be
ready to dig in.” Alas, I did not. But oh my god, guys. Infinity War. Oooh.
So you know, if caramel is your thing, go
for it. If you’re expecting popcorn, I’m
not… not feeling the popcorn vibe on this.
Let me read you the ingredients:
Skim milk, milk protein isolate,
erythritol, non-GMO soluble corn fiber,
cream, cane sugar, contains 2% or less of:
vegetable glycerin, coconut oil, Dutch
cocoa, natural flavor, butter, carob gum,
guar gum, salt, monk fruit extract, pectin,
ghee, citric acid… citric acid, lactic acid,
baking soda, caramel color, malic acid,
disodium phosphate, cornstarch, and soy
lecithin. I… I still have… why have I not
learned how to pronounce that word? LEC ithin? lecithin? lecithin? left lectin? like
fin? Someone let me know, because I… I
should just look it up, because every
time, I butcher that word. There you go. My review of this. It’s good. Not my favorite.
Probably won’t buy this again. Had high
hopes, dashed a little bit. But there you
go. Let me know if I’m crazy. Do you guys
love it? I’ve seen people actually saying
they love this. It’s their favorite flavor
of Enlightened. I’m just not feeling it.
So let me know what you guys think. Am I
crazy?
I’d love to hear from you. So that’s
gonna do it for this review, guys. Hope
you have a fantastic day, and I will see you next time.
Mr. Stark, I don’t feel so good. I…I don’t
want to go. I don’t want to go! I don’t
want to go…
