HALO TOP Ice Cream Is Better Than We Could Have Ever Imagined

I Scream You Scream We All Scream for Ice Cream…but without the calories?

Your prayers have been answered by the one with a Halo.

It’s true, the creators of Halo Top have just uncovered the biggest anomaly in food history.

Foodie or not, most of us have heard about the new trend of low cal ice creams hitting the market. The biggest battle being Halo Top versus Arctic Zero. Though after trying both, I have to say there is really no competition.

If I may be so candid to say, Arctic Zero tasted like dirty snow.

Where as our Downtown team was blown away by all the sweet delicious flavor that was packed into 240 calories of Halo Top. That’s right people, 240 calories. Not for a quarter of the pint or even half. FOR THE WHOLE DAMN THING. Because let’s be honest with ourselves… we’re not, not going to eat the entire thing.

Plus nearly 50% of your Daily Value of protein. It begs the question: Why doesn’t everyone just do this? static1.squarespacePrior to our little taste testing I was skeptical. Low calorie, low fat, low sugar, high protein AND gluten-free. Unless the ice cream was flavored with grilled chicken and asparagus there is no way it could be this healthy, right?


You guys, I’m telling you, it tastes like REAL ice cream. The chocolate is chocolate-y. The vanilla is vanilla-y. It’s rich. It’s creamy. It’s just plain good.

If you’re on your way to the grocery store now, here are my personal recommendations:

“Birthday Cake” comes in as my number one favorite. Reluctant to publicly admit that I ate the whole thing in one sitting.

However, if you’re a fellow chocotectic like myself: both the plain “Chocolate” and the “Chocolate Mocha Chip” satisfy that dark sweet tooth.

And lastly, I have never been attracted to citrus flavors because I prefer my dessert to not taste like a Glade scented candle… but…the “Lemon Cake” pint was exceptionally mouthwatering. static1.squarespace

They said it best “SAVE THE BOWL, you’re going to want the whole pint.”
