  • lol, hell yea it's safe! Eat away! Although, I personally prefer frozen yogurt - it's lighter so you can eat more! In fact, thanks, I might go get some tonight.

    Anyway, if you're concerned about preservatives and/or too many sugar portions - just take it in to consideration with the rest of your diet.

  • soft serve "ice cream" isnt even really ice cream..its some mix of chemicals anyway. you cant get listeria from it. you get listeria from meat & soft CHEESE

  • listeria is a bacteria often found in milk that isnt pastuerized or cheese made from unpastuerized milk, in fact as far as soft serm ice cream goes, if your looking for a frosty treat soft serve is better than actual ice cream because it is ice MILK not ice cream thus making the fat content lower and making it slightly healthier. This is the discussion my husband (who is a diabetic) had with his nutritionist. She told him get Dairy queen over ben and jerrys lol

  • I lived off of ice cream while I was pregnant. Well, not really, but I craved ice cream so I ate some everyday for dessert. No worries, you'll be fine.
