Dirty Dancing & Skinny Cow Ice cream
Happy Friday y’all!! I have a fun little post for you today. A few weeks ago, I was asked by Foodbuzz to throw together a little shindig with Dirty Dancing (it’s the 25th anniversary!) and Skinny Cow ice cream.
I was intrigued to begin with because….here’s the kicker friends, I’ve NEVER SEEN DIRTY DANCING. I know, who hasn’t seen that movie? I’ll be honest, I’m not a good dancer so I tend to shy away from movies about dancing.
Exhibit A of my no dance skills. I mean, I’m doing a Titanic dance at my wedding. That was real, that happened. However, once I received the DVD in the mail, I decided to bite the bullet and watch it, alongside some delicious ice cream.
That was before the power went out for like 5 days. Luckily, we escaped most of the madness by retreating to my in-laws, but from what I saw (and heard) it wasn’t pretty. Luckily my darling SIL was in town with me to revel in all that was hot & young Patrick Swayze..
I mean, he was HOT. My SIL had seen it multiple times but decided to humor me anyway and watch it again.
[Pre me spilling all over myself]
It was a little…cheesy, but endearing none the less. And that scene where they do “Time of My Life?” I mean, that’s awesome. I want to convince E to do that with me. Somehow. While lusting after Patrick, we also enjoyed some of Skinny Cow’s deliciously healthy desserts.
While oscar panted alongside me, hoping I’d share.
Another reason I jumped at the chance to do this post? I’m a HUGE FAN of Skinny Cow desserts and have been forever. Their products are delicious without being fattening and are perfect for those days when you want ice cream, and not extra calories.
We went with two boxes of the white mint truffle bars. Holy cow, I would have eaten all 12 of them if I could. So creamy, delicious and refreshing (given it was over 100 degrees this whole weekend) without all the fat and calories. I love the crunchy swirls of chocolate and the creamy and minty and creamy middle.
My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Because one can’t survive on just ice cream alone (someone else’s words, not mine) we decided to have a few other delicious snacks as well. Including some pita, chips, homemade spicy hummus, anti-pasta platter and of course, some delicious Chardonnay!
It was such a fun afternoon in and I’m so glad I finally got to see the movie. Thank you again to Foodbuzz and Skinny Cow for sending along the DVD and the coupons for all the delicious desserts! I’d be lying if I said they all (as in both boxes of them) weren’t gone. Be sure to head on over to the Skinny Cow Facebook page, like them and then enter the “Ladies Night In” Sweepstakes challenge! If you win, you can get a chance to go to LA and meet Jennifer Grey! For reals! The contest ends July 15th at midnight.
As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I received a stipend, DVD, and coupons for free Skinny Cow® product.
2. I actually received a flyer for the Dirty Dancing event today in Chicago. IT's a screening at our downtown movie theatre with Skinny Cow treats. I got excited. I went on the website to sign up and... all sold out. It upset me. Why would they give out flyers to an already sold out event? :(
Glad you had fun though!
