Cool Treats for Hot Moms

Ice cream, bon bons, sorbet and other frozen sweets perfect for a hot summer day

In this snack round-up: the best chilly treats for sweaty summer days — all of which were a blast to test out!

Feel the Churn

Apparently, it’s the slow mixing process that lets the yumminess in these six-ounce containers (available in classic flavors

like chocolate and vanilla) come in at half as many calories as regular ice cream. (Edy’s, $1.25 each)

Bonbon Voyage

Remember the old saw about the SAHM who watched soaps and ate bonbons all day? If such a creature actually existed, she’d want

these. They’re a cookie, ice cream, and chocolate all in one. (Choco’s, $5 for 12)

Keep it Simple

Like a six-word memoir, a five-ingredient ice cream gets down to the essence. Here: ginger, milk, cream, sugar, eggs. That’s it.

(Haagen-Dazs Five, $4.39)

Italian Stallin’

The procrastination-worthy sorbet (made from imported Sicilian blood oranges) now comes in 3.5-ounce cups, each with its own

spoon. Bellissimo! (Ciao Bella, $13 for 12)

Thank You Very Mochi

A twist on the Japanese classic, these delicious dollops wrap ice cream within a
layer of sweetened rice flour. So good, we

were left with a permanent yen. (Bubbies, $9 for eight)

Thin ‘Wich

“Ice cream sandwich” and “watching my weight” don’t usually go together, except in a dark-humor kind of way — and in these

140-calorie treats. (Weight Watchers, $5 for six)
