Can they compare to the real deal? And yes, we got paid to try ice cream.
As I often research things to eat, I have heard only good things about Halo Top again and again. They are hard AF to find, but I used my reporting prowess (I emailed their PR lol) to get my hands on some of these babies. I tried it and OMG. LIFE-CHANGING.
Ice cream has always been a place of steep nutritional compromise—you either go whole-hog and eat the real, butter-fat-laden deal, or you settle for some suspicious, chemical-based foam and get a stomachache. For those who love cold, creamy deliciousness but don’t want to wind up in a food coma, the situation has been truly unjust.
Temperatures might have dropped outside, but that hasn't stopped America from being completely obsessed with ice cream — a new, low-calorie ice cream called Halo Top, to be exact, which claims to taste just as good as the real thing.
Life happens. And when it does, sometimes all you want to do is hang out with your friends, Ben and Jerry, or their Danish-sounding cousin, Häagen-Dazs.
We get it though. You still want to fit into your pants after getting off your emotional roller coaster. But "healthy" frozen dessert options can be actually offensive: Water and pea protein do not make ice cream.
I mean seriously, it was so good I finished the whole freaking pint in approximately 30 seconds. With any other ice cream brand, I would probably feel a little guilty for eating the whole thing, but with Halo Top, the whole pint is typically under 300 calories! (YES PLEASE!)
Halo Top Ice Cream is probably known best as the low-calorie dessert. The high-protein sweet averages about a svelte 240 calories a pint, a quarter of the calories compared to regular store ice cream's pints. Obviously perfect for those looking to stay a little fitter, without denying their sweet tooth.
When we heard about “healthy ice cream” from a company called Halo Top, we were skeptical. Because we assumed it would either A) not actually be good for you and/or B) taste too good for you (i.e., gross).
Well, we’ve tried all seven flavors--from vanilla bean and chocolate to lemon cake and espresso chip--and are pleased to report that we were totally mistaken.
Daphne Oz's apple crisp is less than half the calories of a slice of regular apple pie. This warm, comforting dessert is ideal for those seeking a guilt-free dessert post dinner. Top it off with a scoop of Halo Top ice cream for the whole family to enjoy!
I’m an unabashed ice cream glutton. I’ve been through just about every flavor that comes in a pint-size container. And I always find that 1/2-cup serving size laughable. A half cup is generally what I have on the way from the freezer to the couch if we’re being completely honest.
