Living Harvest Tempt Ice Cream Bars


You can say I'm a newcomer to Tempt. I've always seen pints of Tempt Ice Cream in the stores, but I just never took the leap and bought one. Hemp as a base ingredient is interesting to me, so it was just a matter of time. Recently my Whole Foods had a sale on the new Tempt Ice Cream Bars and I decided enough is enough and bought all four flavors.

The different varieties of Tempt Ice Cream Bars are Coffee with Cream Swirls, Vanilla with Blueberry Pomegranate Swirls, Chocolate Fudge and Vanilla with Fudge Swirls. One of the claims on the packaging is that each bar is only 100 calories. If you've followed this blog for any length of time you know I'm not a calorie counter, but for the people that are I'm glad this bar is an option for you. Also the bars are also relatively low in fat.

Out of the four bars, Vanilla with Fudge Swirls was my clear favorite. It reminded me a little bit of old school Jello Pudding pops. Delicious vanilla mixed with sweet fudge, I'm going to make this a regular purchase. The Chocolate Fudge was my second favorite. Nothing mindblowing but it was a really solid fudgesicle. Next was Vanilla with Blueberry Swirls. Similar to the Vanilla Fudge Swirl bar but replacing the fudge for blueberry. It was good, but I felt the berry flavor kind of clashed with the vanilla flavor. And last on my list was Coffee with Cream. I'm not a coffee person at all but I will say that if you love coffee then you will absolutely love this bar. So in closing, I think the Vanilla and Fudge are to die for and the rest are good, depending on your personal taste.

  3. I went straight to whole foods and got these in the chocolate fudge flavor. I agree with your assessment, "nothing mindblowing" but they weren't bad. When something like this is too sweet and not chocolatey enough, it tastes kind of marshmallowy, to me anyway. It's disappointing to me, because it isn't soy based, so I wanted to like it. I'm going back and try the vanilla fudge swirl next.
