love at first bite.

discovered this yummy goodness at vons yesterday and i am in love. if you know me, you know that it's pretty hard to go wrong with anything ice cream (unless it's chocolate of course - i know, i'm crazy) but unfortunately my waistline doesn't really appreciate all the abuse. so, something sweet, ice-creamy, and not going to make me gain 5 lbs instantly?!? a dream!!
not only is this blood orange sorbet sooooo refreshing and satisfying, it also has ZERO grams of fat and 98 calories in 1/2 a cup. hellooo?!??!! now, usually i wouldn't equate a sorbet to ice cream. not the same. but man, this is gooooood.
mmm.. i just can't get enough! it tastes like a real orange! (beware: if you don't like oranges, you probably won't like it.) maybe that is because the only ingredients are blood orange juice, orange juice, and lastly sugar. could it be true?
i also picked up the pistachio flavored gelato version for the hubby (lover of all things pistachio and all things italian). even he, who doesn't get too excited about food (would rather have a magic pill than bother to eat) thought this was surprisingly delicious. i snuck in a few bites and had to agree! you'd better go get some before word gets out! goooood stuff!
as you can tell, i don't have the same problem as the hubby and possibly get way too excited about food. oh well.

I have only seen that ice cream on Oprah...I think...I have not seen it in Utah. So, next time we're in California, we'll have to pick some up! Sounds yummy!!!

Hmmm, I want to try it! The cute name alone, which conjures up memories of when Aaron and I were dating and he used to say that to ME is reason enough to keep it in my freezer! I wonder if Z could handle me eating citrus in the form of ice cream?

SO good to see you guys last night! I hope we get in at least a few more visits in the next month or so. When should we expect a post about that??
