Post Frozen Yogurt-The Buzz- Wow Cow/CarboLite

The Frozen Yogurt "Wow Cow" and "CarboLite" Softserve are served at some local more non-big corporation yogurt chains. Now, would you consider these as empty calories?

WowCow- AllNatural.
A 100% Yogurt Texture- not as heavy - full of flavor.
[ please do not post commercial websites ]
States: 10 Calories Per Ounce - Higher than carbolite in carbs-No Sweeteners-real fructose- and is lactose free.
Ingredients:
Crystalline Fructose (Real Fruit Fructose), Delactosed Whey, Cultured Yogurt Solids, Guar Seed Gum, Natural Flavors And Colors, Dutch Process Cocoa in Chocolate.
appears to be 9.5 cals/ 2 carbs per ounce
Kosher Certified

Carbolite SoftServe:
Less texture than wowcow, feels more "icey", is made for "lowcarbers"-no aftertaste.

3g Net Carbs
Nutritional Facts
Serving Size: 1/2 Cup (4 ounces)
Number Servings 25
Calories: 42
Fat Calories: 6
Total Fat: 0.7g
Saturated Fat: 0g
Cholesterol: 41mg
Sodium: 44mg
Total Carbs: 4g
Dietary Fiber: 1g

Protein: 3g
-------------------
Ingredients:
Whey Protein Concentrate, Whey, Whole Milk, Sorbitol, Maltodextrin, Non Fat Milk, Natural Gums and Stabilizers, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Sucralose (Splenda Brand)

::::Sweetened with Splenda::::: Low Carb and appears 10.25 cals 1 carb per ounce.

Also: A "CarboWhey" Yogurt is out with 41 cals/ 7 carbs per ounce.

Are These yogurts healthy on occasion? Are they unhealthy? Are these a DEFINATE empty Calorie? WIll these slow down your diet increpitably? They DO have Whey powders... give you protein.. and are low in calorie. I think the carbolite isnt as healthy as wowcow since it does have fat/sweeteners/sat fat/and cholestorol. Wowcow is a healthier choose.

Is a 5 Ounce "Baby" sized With lets say 3 Ounce Swirled overtop extra= 8 Ounce- Worse Than A 16 Ounce Serving Of Coca-Cola? - Calories will win on yogurt.
Opinions.

Re: Frozen Yogurt-The Buzz- Wow Cow/CarboLite

I eat wow cow and carbolite frozen yogurts ALL the time and love them! They are empty calories in the sense that they do not add much nutrients to your day, but they are very good alternatives to high fat/high calorie desserts.
If you take the calories into account, they should not hinder weight loss or impede upon your nutrition. Enjoy, is what I say!!!

Where in the heck do you buy this stuff at? I looked everywhere in the frozen ice cream section, and couldn't find this stuff anywhere?

Re: Frozen Yogurt-The Buzz- Wow Cow/CarboLite

I LOVE wow cow and carbolite! I eat them probably almost every single day. They are very tasty, and although they are not an alternative to nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables, they aren't forbidden! MMMMMMMM....
