Halo Top is low in calories, low in carbs, and loaded with protein. But is it too good to be true? Our brave guinea pig puts the ice cream of the future to the test.
The American dairy is one of the most competitive spaces in the food industry, long dominated by giants who have the scale to quickly and widely distribute a product with a very short lifespan, in a sector where consumer brand loyalty is legendary.
Now that the weather is finally turning warmer, we feel like it makes at least a little more sense to be eating ice cream — specifically one of our favorites: Halo Top. To kick off Spring on the right foot, Halo Top created for us a simple recipe for magical mermaid popsicles using some of our favorite flavors.
Bracket season is upon us, with the first March Madness basketball game taking place between New Orleans and Mount St. Mary’s this evening. And while the sweepstakes for a winning bracket may be high among your classmates or co-workers, Halo Top ice cream may have the sweetest offer of all: a free year’s worth of ice cream from Halo Top.
When Liza Black found out Halo Top ice cream was on sale at ShopRite last month, she and her husband went on a mission. At one store, they bought four pints of the Peanut Butter Cup flavor. Then, standing in the freezer aisle of another ShopRite without a shopping cart, Ms. Black was stacking pints up against her chest.
The L.A.-based Halo Top made waves in 2016. An entire pint of ice cream that clocks in at less than 400 calories? One that's low on carbs, but relatively high in protein? This all sounded like a bunch of alternative facts, before the term was even coined. But the good news just kept rolling in.
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.
Holy sweetness, you guys. We finally got to try Halo Top ice cream — the protein-rich, low-sugar, low-carb, low-fat frozen goodness that we've had our eye on for months — and it didn't disappoint.
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.
July 17 marks National Ice Cream Day, but I choose to celebrate eating ice cream all the time. In fact, one of my favorite things about summer is that there is always an excuse to eat ice cream.
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.
2015 Taste Test Award Winner: Halo Mint Chip
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.
