Slim Twin Chocolate Ice Cream | Low Carb Ice Cream Review | Keto-Friendly

Slim Twin Chocolate Ice Cream | Low Carb Ice Cream Review | Keto-Friendly

July 19, 2019 14 By William Morgan


I have not forgotten about my dear
friends at Slim Twin. I’ve just been busy with
some other stuff recently. But I want to
get back to checking out the rest of
their ice creams, so I’m gonna do
chocolate this week. And it’s starting
right after this. 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 eating vlogs, I do some
keto product reviews, and I do some keto
giveaways. If this is your first time

you do, make sure you’re on notification
squad by clicking the bell. Okay, guys.
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve had any
Slim Twin. I’ve been all up in Killer
Whey’s business the last few weeks, but I
want to get back to Slim Twin, because
they’re pretty, pretty good, at least the
flavors I’ve had so far, particularly
cardamom. So if you’ve been here before,
you’ll know that I break my reviews down
into three parts. Three and a half, maybe
four parts, nowadays? I talk about the
texture first. How’s it feel coming out
of the pint? How’s it feeling this thing?
I talk about the flavor. Do I like it? And I
talk about the carbs. And the third and
a half… fourth section is the ingredients.
I’ve taken to giving a rundown of the
ingredients in each of these pints as
well. So let’s get into it.
Slim Twin, of course, has the cool, more sturdy lid. Oh. This has been out of
my…Wow. This has been on my freezer for about a half an hour. My freezer must’ve
been really set colder, because look at
that. That’s uh…
Yikes. This could be operator error, here,
you guys. Let’s see how this…how this
goes. That’s not it’s not what I expected
to see when I opened it up. But
you know, it’s coming out okay.
This is gonna be a frosty first bite. Not
at all bad.
Texture is pretty good. I’m gonna give
this pint the benefit of the doubt,
because yeah, look. It’s… it’s been
frozen solid, I think, for a while. It’s
been in my freezer for a bit — for like, at
least a few weeks. And I feel like it’s
probably been right next to the… right
next to the fan, or something. But we’ll
power through. I’ll find a way to power
through this review. The taste is pretty
good. It is about what you’d expect. I
can’t really speak to the texture. To be
fair, like this is just…kind of hard and
frosty. But I think that’s my fault.
I like it. The taste is… not incredibly
chocolatey, but also not weak.
That bite, though? I was gonna say it’s a
little middle-of-the-road, but that… I got
a good… good dose of it — of the chocolate, there. I think that if I were to let this sit
out for another half hour or so, I might
get a better idea, because yeah. You can
see, it’s just sort of sort of chunky and
hard, still.
But I don’t mind the taste one bit. It’s
what you expect from a chocolate ice
cream. It tastes like chocolate. It’s not
crazy indulgent. It’s also not… it’s not
whispery. It’s… it’s not… you know, I’m not
struggling to taste the chocolate. It’s
kind of fudgey. I don’t mind it. Let’s get
to the nutrition and the carbs. Serving
size: one half cup. Four servings per
container, as usual. 70 calories, total fat
1.5 grams, saturated fat one gram, six
grams of protein, total carbs: 11 grams,
dietary fiber: 4, and sugar alcohol: 3. So
that gets us down to… what? 4 grams of net
carbs per serving? 16 grams of carbs per
pint. That is righteous. I’m happy to see
Slim Twin keeping things in the keto
range. Like, my old friends Halo Top have
really, in my opinion, kind of dropped the
ball recently. I used to be a big fan of
Halo Top’s lemon flavor, but I noticed that
they upped the calories and carbs in
that one. It’s nice to see ice creams
that are fewer than 20 carbs per pint.
Let me just read you the ingredients,
here. We have nonfat milk, egg yolk, milk
protein concentrate, cocoa powder
processed with alkali, erythritol, solullhr…
or soluble tapioca fiber, cream, cane
sugar, hmm. Vanilla extract, locust bean
gum, monk fruit extract. Allergy warning:
contains milk and egg. Well, it’s a bummer
about the cane sugar However, there’s an
asterisk next to it, and next to most of
these ingredients. I don’t know if you…
you probably can’t read that there,
because it won’t focus. But it says the
asterisk means organic. So… organic cane
sugar is still cane sugar. But you know?
You could do much worse than Slim Twin.
Not too bad at all,
outside of that cane sugar. Yeah, I will
recommend this stuff, because of the
carbs, and because it’s got a nice fudgey
taste, and your pint will probably look
better than that, particularly if you
keep it away from the fan in your
freezer. One more bite. Lemme get some of this
gooey stuff down here. The stuff
around the sides has been melting. Look at how
fudgey that is. Yeah, pretty good, you guys. Can’t come close to cardamom. These guys…
If these guys put out garbage flavors…
the other flavors that have yet to taste,
I will still adore them, because of
cardamom. So that’s chocolate. If you guys
have had it, let me know what you think!
How do you think it compares to other
chocolate low-carb ice creams that
you’ve had? Let me know down in the
comments. I would love to hear from you.
That’s gonna wrap it up for this review,
guys. Thank you so much for watching. Thank you so much for subscribing. I hope
you have a fantastic day, and I will see
you next time.
This… you know, this blows the water out …what? Blows the water. Blows the water.
What what what what what? FUDGEY WUDGEY. What?
