Make Mardi Gras “Low Fat” Tuesday This Year

Pierre's Better For You Treats for Low Fat TuesdayHave you bounced back from indulging over the holidays? If so, be warned: Mardi Gras is right around the corner on March 4, and with it comes parties and high-calorie foods like King Cake and Pączkis which help the event live up to its translation of “Fat Tuesday”.

Sure, there are parties and gatherings, but you don’t have to give in to temptation. Join Pierre’s as we reclaim Mardi Gras as “Low Fat Tuesday”, a fun, flavorable celebration of making better choices. After all, living well is hard work, and it’s okay to reward yourself with irresistible ice creams and frozen treats … this time, only better for you.

Use #LowFatTuesday on Twitter and share a healthier choice you are making this year. Maybe you’re putting that new gym membership to good use. Perhaps you’re going lighter on the salt or are drinking more water. Are you walking with your kids after dinner, or with your co-workers at lunch? Or maybe you’re simply selecting better-for-your choices at the grocery store. Whatever you’re doing, let @pierrestweets know!

At Pierre’s, we believe that everybody deserves a treat and are proud to offer a range of lighter alternatives. Our Sorbet is naturally fat free and bursting with flavor. Smooth Churned Light Ice Cream trims the fat – half the fat compared to regular ice cream – to be exact.

Treat Yourself to Better Choices

Yovation Black Cherries  Chocolate ChunksWhether or not you made a resolution to eat better this year, Pierre’s offers many delicious options for you and your family to enjoy a delicious frozen treat without feeling guilty.

Apples have been around since the beginning of time, and it’s no surprise why. They’re delicious and easy to eat whether enjoyed just picked off the tree or prepared in a favorite dessert. Apples have inspired a wide variety of favorite desserts, from caramelized apples, apple cake, apple crisp, apple dumplings, apple fritters, apple streusel, apple strudel and … of course, America’s favorite … apple pie.

Pierre’s irresistible Butter Pecan Premium Ice Cream recipe uses fresh-roasted, buttery pecans for a taste you can’t resist and is a solid, savory companion to apple pie’s sweet cinnamon-y taste.
