Our favorite way to eat ice cream? At midnight, splayed out on the couch in our PJs while watching true-crime documentaries. (Don’t judge us.) There’s only one problem: After eating all that sugar so late at night, Amanda Knox turns into The Staircase turns into Abducted in Plain Sight…and before we know it, it’s 4 a.m., and we’re still jittery.
But now there’s Nightfood, “ice cream for people who eat ice cream at night.” (Ooh, that’s us.) No, it’s not regular ice cream laced with melatonin—it’s a special recipe that’s free of caffeine, excess fat, sugar and calories, which is friendlier for the nighttime digestion process. It also includes additional minerals (like magnesium, a proven sleep aid) and amino acids to support sleep quality.
This sounds amazing in theory, but does Nightfood really work? We taste-tested all eight flavors to find out.
What flavors are we talking about? We sampled the Full Moon Vanilla, Midnight Chocolate, After Dinner Mint Chip (mint chocolate chip), Cold Brew Decaf (sleep-friendly coffee), Cookies N’ Dreams (cookies and cream), Milk & Cookie Dough (cookie dough chunks in vanilla ice cream), Cherry Eclipse (cherries and chocolate chips), and Bed and Breakfast (sweet maple ice cream with waffle chunks).
