Have you tried the strawberry one? I bought it this week and it was disgusting. If you’ve tried it, are the other flavours better by comparison?
I’ve never seen it in real life! The main reason I buy this stuff so often is because they have it at the “regular” supermarket chain five minutes from my house — if I had to make a trip to the local Whole Foods to get it I wouldn’t bother.
The only flavors I have ever seen at my store are coffee, cookies and cream, and mint chocolate cookie. Coffee definitely has a weird aftertaste, but the other two are pretty inoffensively chocolate and chocolate-mint, respectively. I’m also fairly certain I’m one of maybe five people buying it there, because I always see the same freezer-burned pints sitting there until I end up being a sucker and buying them.
So yeah, the chocolate ones are good, though the texture is icy like cheap sorbet…. BUT, I have a problem with wanting to eat my feelings, so this is kind of a safe placebo for me. Usually once I get halfway through the pint I’m over it, and it’s only about 75 calories later.
I keep waiting for some horrible expose that will show that Arctic Zero will cause me to grow a cancerous second head or something, just to ruin my joy over this stuff.
