Enlightened Keto Collection Review | Keto Ice Cream Review


what’s going on everybody tom here with black sheep tito and welcome to another video review just for you subscribers out there and if you’re not a subscriber yet please consider doing so today we have a whole slew of ice cream in front of me as you can see and this is the keto collection from enlightened so previously in Lyons ice cream were a little higher in carbs and not so much on the keto ingredients side of things so they release this keto collection and attempt to hit back keto market now again for full disclosure purposes I did get this product for free they reached out to me about two weeks before they even announced this product and asked me if I wanted to try some so of course I said yes but that will not affect my review in any way or criticism of any ingredients that may be in there now this review is going to be slightly different because there are so many different ice creams I’m not gonna be able to step through every macro and ingredient each thing before we start the review I will point out a few ingredients that are a little questionable to me and then as I’m reviewing them I will put the macker in the full ingredient list to the side of me here so that sounds good you guys hang on tight and let’s get tasting [Music] [Applause] now I mentioned in the intro that I was going to point out an ingredient that I thought might be questionable and it is in every single one of these things and my spidey senses were telling me that you guys were gonna ask questions about it too so that ingredient is non GMO soluble corn fiber now typically when I see things that say corn in it I typically go the other way because you know it’s Quito we don’t really have corn but since we allow erythritol in a ketogenic diet and erythritol is based out of corn I decided what let’s do some research on this and see what we can find as it turns out it is very hard to find information on soluble corn fiber now the one thing I did find was it did make the FDA say fiber list which is things like I don’t know husk powder inulin that type of stuff things that are not on there is stuff like IMO and tapioca fiber those things that we know will spike our insulin levels so I’m gonna go ahead and say that it’s safe for now I couldn’t find an exact lysine the index I found some people estimating it but it wasn’t really good evidence I even found a blog that was you know very N equals one anecdotal saying that they mixed up some soluble corn fiber and drank it and they had a mild increase in their blood sugar levels but it was very mild so at this point I don’t really know what to think about that non-gmo corn fiber if you guys have a good scientific resource for me that you’ve read up on corn fiber please leave it down in the description because I’m very curious to learn more about it but based on the research that I did I couldn’t really find a lot of concrete evidence so for now I’m going to assume it’s okay until otherwise proven now we’ll go over the macro specifically for each one or rather put them on the screen when we address that flavor but just as a brief cursory view of things they all range from 15 to 18 grams of fat and 2 to 4 grams of protein per serving and they’re all claiming 1 net carb per serving so let’s get started with this one of my left here which is the chocolate peanut butter now the label did not say to leave them out for 20 minutes ahead of time but I went ahead and ate it anyway because they felt a little firm to me and as you can see this will be the first taste for me as well so let’s give a chocolate peanut butter a try now that is very very tasty it’s chocolatey there’s a nice vein of peanut butter that runs through it you kind of get some texture from it and the peanut butter just gonna clean your mouth like you would if you were eating a scoop of peanut butter as far as the ice cream goes it scoops really well and I do quite enjoy the flavor the chocolate isn’t even that overpowering like it normally would be so for this one I’m gonna give it a 4 out of 5 moving on here we have the chocolate glazed donut flavor now a lot of these flavors do contain chocolates if you’re not a fan of chocolate you might be missing out on these but let’s try the chocolate glazed donut to be honest guys I’m not a big fan it’s very very sweet the textures there there is a nice vein of chocolate running through it so you do get some texture there but it does just taste like pretty much sweet and chocolate which I guess in some ways that’s what a glazed donut is but I’m not getting into that kind of bakery flavor it’s all just sweet and chocolate so in terms of the chocolate glazed donut I am gonna give it a 3 out of 5 it’s pretty good the texture is there but honestly it’s just like a sweet chocolate I’m not too impressed with it but it’s still a pretty decent ice cream and the texture is there moving on to the mint chocolate chunk that is a typical mint chip ice cream it is dyed green some of them are some of them aren’t depending on the manufacturer you go to but I guess it doesn’t really make that much of a difference so let’s give it a taste you know I’m not the biggest mint chip fan in the world but that is actually a very good mint chip ice cream the chocolate chunks are large enough that you get some crunch to it the mint ice cream is there but it’s not overpowering it really reminds me of those little silver and green wrapped mints you get from like the Olive Garden pretty good ice cream I’m gonna give it a four out of five I think it’s fantastic the textures there it tastes good I’m not a big mint chocolate fan but I’m gonna kind of abstract my own opinions from it and just say you know what that’s a four out of five ice cream moving on to the coffee and cream I’ll tell you what guys the second you open this pond you get a big whiff of that coffee it does smell like a coffee shop nothing artificial about it it really does smell like a nice cup of coffee so let’s see if it tastes as good it smells okay I actually really do enjoy that one it is a coffee flavor but not super overpowering I can understand why they call it a coffee cream it’s a bit sweet I’d almost consider it like um maybe one of those that kind of sweetened creamy starbucks Frappuccino so that’s kind of what reminds me of but it’s still a very good ice cream the flavors there and as with all of these the texture on the ice cream is spot-on it rolls really nicely on the spoon it breaks down your mouth really well maybe I’m speaking too early but so far these ice creams have been fantastic so this one I’m also gonna give you know I’m gonna give it a four and a half out of five I actually really like this coffee cream next on our list is butter pecan I can see right off the bat that there’s a quite a bit of chunks of pecans in there it’s a nice white ice cream so let’s taste it okay guys my favorite one yet this is absolutely delicious the textures there the pecans have a nice crunch to them it is a little bit sweet I will say that that kind of caramel flavor you get in butter pecan it’s very potent in here it is very sweet but it’s kind of a good thing with ice cream right you’re looking for a sweeter alternative I really like this one I’m still gonna give it a four and a half out of five because I don’t think it’s quite at that five level but so far the butter pecan is my favorite flavor next on our line we have the red velvet I’m actually very excited with this one because I’m a huge red velvet fan there’s a place here in Vegas called nothing bundt cakes and they obviously make bundt cakes but um we have this really delicious red velvet cake and before I was keyed oh man I could reckon entire cake myself so funny a good substitute for a red velvet has been hard whether it be cake or ice cream so I have a lot of hope riding on this one so let’s see what it’s all about first of all it is a kind of a deeper almost maroon color as opposed to that bright red that you see on the packaging but I’m willing to let the color go if it tastes good now this one’s pretty good I would say a three and a half out of five it has a really strong chocolate finish on the end of it which is kind of what you’d expect from a red velvet but on the front end it’s very very sweet almost like you’d expect like a frosting but almost Tussauds that you don’t actually taste much of the chocolate until moments after you swallow it the sweet in the beginning really overpowers the chocolatey flavor of the red velvet so three and a half out of five it’s alright still haven’t found a good substitute for red velvet but it’s decent and the last one aren’t list guys it is the peanut butter fudge so I’m expecting this to be kind of the opposite of the chocolate peanut butter I’m expecting this to be like a peanut butter ice cream with chocolate in it well let’s see if I was right boom got one right for once guy so again with this one big chunks in there lots of swirls that’s one thing I’ve noticed but all of them is they didn’t neglect the texture the texture in terms of the ice cream is good and they put a lot of mix ins that add a nice crunch a nice different feel to it so let’s taste the final ice cream which is our peanut butter fudge okay so with this one the flavors there the peanut butter ice cream is very flavorful it definitely does kind of have that creamy peanut butter flavor to it and then you do hit the fudge and it’s nice and gooey which i think is great what I will say is it has the kind of like whipped frosting type of feel to it where it’s not this kind of creamy smooth ice cream like the others this one the textures a little off for me and maybe it’s just the pints I got they did ship them to me so maybe this we got slightly melted I’m not sure but this one feels too Airy and not as like creamy it doesn’t scoop as well it’s almost whipped in a way so for that reason I am gonna give this one a three out of five it’s okay I probably wouldn’t buy it personally the flavors there but the texture is not as good as any of these other ones that we have here well now that you guys have heard my opinions of the flavors of all seven of these ice creams in the new in Lyon Quito collection what do I think of the product as a whole well I think the texture is good probably the best texture of a keto ice cream that I’ve had so far and most the flavors were pretty good so I would give it a four out of five as a total rating now the one caveat to this would be that that non-gmo soluble corn fiber guys I really couldn’t find a lot of information on it and that’s kind of upsetting and I don’t really like that I’ve seen reports saying that you know there’s a glycemic index between 20 and 25 but those were estimates and there was nothing concrete I’ve seen blog post saying that it did not like someone’s glucose levels I saw ones that said it did so I think we need to be a little bit careful with this ingredient until I can find more concrete information and if you yourself have seen some good scientific concrete information on this corn fiber go and leave in the description or in the comment section that way I can be educated and you can help educate everybody else out there and just kind of benefit the Quito community but even with that I’m going to assume that every gram of fiber in these pines are from that soluble corn fiber and most of you only have about two grams of fiber so let’s assume that it does have that 20 to 25 lysine make index like people are reporting I still don’t think it’d be that bad freedom so again I will give it a 4 out of 5 I think it’s gonna be a really good addition to the Quito ice cream selections and of course guys I will leave a link in the description to where you can buy this and of course you can always find out your grocery stores if they carry in light well guys I am gonna go in close up the video if you like this video leave a
