I am resorting to all kinds of soothing remedies for my aching body. I've been reading my Book of the Month (loving it so far!), meditating, and with the newly diagnosed strep throat, my favorite guilty treat has been ice cream because it makes my throat feel better. Obviously, ice cream isn't a "healthy" treat, which is why I am so happy that Halo Top exists, because its low calorie count makes me feel even just a little bit better about indulging in a treat! I mean, don't get me wrong - I haven't been sitting down to an entire pint, but allow me to share that the entire pint is 240-280 calories, which is wild considering that is usually a simple serving size of a half cup of regular ice cream!
I've tried a few flavors from the Halo Top library of flavor selections and I can personally attest to all of the ones I have tried being great. I tried the Vanilla Bean, Strawberry, and Lemon Cake and they all don't even taste like they have a largely different calorie count than regular ice cream! (In fact, they're definitely yummier than "regular" ice cream!) Also important to note is that every flavor is certified gluten-free! (I know those words make any Celiac-striken person's heart sing, and I was sure happy to find that out!) Even the Birthday Cake flavor and the Mint Chip flavors that I have my eye on to try next are GF, and those flavors aren't usually GF with any other ice cream brands! I haven't seen either of those flavors in my local Whole Foods, though, so I am going to have to wait until I come across them to try them!
I'm such a sucker for a cute product and company design, which is part of what sold me on Halo Top before I even tried the ice cream. (Check out their adorable and yummy Instagram account!) It's the perfect, adorable, guilt-free treat for anyone with a sweet tooth for ice cream!! (Like myself!) I am stocking my freezer up with this ice cream and none other from here on out! Go run and try a Halo Top flavor and let me know which one is y'all's favorite!
I hope y'all are doing well! Enjoy the beginning of your week!
Thank you, Halo Top, for the opportunity to write this post!
