New York-based Enlightened introduced the first lower-sugar sundae cones. While a traditional sundae cone can have up to 23 grams of sugar, Enlightened’s versions have as few as 6 grams of sugar and 140 calories per cone. Instead of using an excessive amount of sugar or artificial sweeteners, Enlightened says it sweetens its sundae cones with monk fruit.
The cones come in three light ice cream flavors: Vanilla Fudge, Caramel Fudge and Peanut Butter Fudge. They also are available in three frozen Greek yogurt versions: Vanilla Honey (featuring a honey core), Caramel Dark Chocolate Almond Butter (featuring an almond butter core) and Strawberry Shortcake.
“In creating these Sundae Cones, we wanted to offer a range of flavor profiles, so there is something for everyone,” said Michael Shoretz, Enlightened’s CEO and founder. “That’s why we created three classic flavor profiles with our best-selling light ice cream and three yogurt-inspired flavors made with frozen Greek yogurt, two of which include a flavor core for extra indulgence.”
The 4-ounce cones are packaged three to a box and have a suggested retail price of $5.99. They are availabl on EatEnlightened.com and in grocery stores nationwide, including Sprouts Farmers Market, Shoprite, Walmart, H-E-B, Stop & Shop and more, Enlightened says.
