To know me is to know my love of Halo Top. So, it only makes sense to write an entire blog post reviewing the flavors of Halo Top that I’ve tried (so far).
It also helped that when Halo Top saw my video (about the grocery store throw down with my husband), they sent me 8 free pints! So, I resisted the urge to request all 8 pints to be Peanut Butter Cup, and, instead, decided to request mostly flavors that I hadn’t tried yet. (I did get one PB cup, though).
Also- everyone is different and I know some people who LOVE flavors that I DON’T, so, to each their own!
Because I am a legitimate ice cream reviewer (ask my friends, we’ve had many discussions), I’ve created this super fancy, pint rating system:
1 Pint- I’ll Pass.
2 Pints- I like it!
3 Pints- I LOVE it!
So, here goes! My reviews on the 20 flavors that I’ve tried:
Peanut Butter Cup
My absolutely favorite! It has all of the flavor of a regular ice cream, and I would devour this even if I were not health conscious! It has swirls of peanut butter deliciousness.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!
It was hard to decide if this was my favorite flavor or if PB Cup is, because this one is also amazing! It’s soooo much better than I thought it would be and I don’t know of any other ice cream with a similar flavor. Oatmeal Cookie has actual oats incorporated.
Again, I would totally eat this one if I were not health-conscious.
I was so excited to find this one at my local grocery last year, but I have to say, I was pretty disappointed. I’m a HUGE fan of Dairy Queen’s Pumpkin Pie Blizzard (drool!), and, unfortunately, this was not comparable. It wasn’t bad or disgusting- it just wasn’t as great as I thought that it would be, and not a flavor that I would buy again.
Cookies & Cream
This is your typical cookies & cream ice cream.
It does not taste healthy. It’s just darn good!
Red Velvet Cake
Can I have 3 favorites?? Because, this is also one of them. Again, I was not expecting this to be so good.
Pancakes & Waffles
This one was definitely not my favorite, but I know someone else who absolutely loves it! For me, the maple flavor was way too strong, but, then again, it is pancakes and waffles, so what can you expect?? If you love maple flavored things, then you’d probably love this!
This is another flavor that I’ll pass on. Again, it wasn’t “bad,” it just wasn’t that good. I think a lot of this depends on what kind of ice cream that you like in general. For me, I’m more of an indulgent-style ice cream (bring on the chocolate and peanut butter and cake!), rather than a sherbert or fruity-flavored ice cream. If you’re the latter, then you’d probably love this one!
Chocolate Mocha Chip
Coming back over to the indulgent side, this one definitely fits the script! This is a perfect super chocolatey ice cream for when you’re just craving chocolate!
This one is also really good and a favorite for a lot of Halo Top fans that I know! I have zero complaints about the S’Mores!
I was pleasantly surprised with this dairy-free option! This one is definitely more for the fruity ice cream people, though. It also has actual coconut incorporated, so if you don’t like the texture of coconut, then it’s not for you. However, it reminded me of a Pina Colada!
I mean, I did eat all of it, but it wasn’t my favorite (compared to the other flavors). This one’s gingerbread flavor is really strong.
This one is also pretty good, but I wouldn’t consider it to be my favorite. It’s your typical mint chocolate chip ice cream, minus all the bad stuff!
They say that love always happens when you least expect it, right?? I was NOT expecting to love this one so much, but it’s up there on my (ever growing) favorite’s list! It’s the perfect balance of caramel and coffee. YUM!
This one is not my favorite, but again, not bad. Does Halo Top actually make a bad flavor? I think this one was just a little too bland for me.
Shut the front door! Again, I was not expecting to even like this one! If you’ve ever had banana split dip n dots, this is very similar! I was worried about the strength of the banana flavor and whether there would be chunks of bananas in it (BLEH), but it passed both tests. Yes, I ate the whole pint.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
At this point, I think my “favorites” list is no longer effective because this is also my favorite! It has chunks of cookie dough and little chips and is absolutely delish!
(WOO! for rhyming!)
Meh. This one wasn’t that great to me and definitely wasn’t as indulgent as some of my favorites. It just wasn’t bursting with flavor like the other ones that I love.
This one was also really good! Not too sweet. Not too cherry-y. A great option for when I’m not feeling so chocolate-y.
Sea Salt Caramel
Salted Caramel flavors are really hit or miss for me and this was a miss! It was just too strong for my liking.
Also delicious. Also has funfetti sprinkles like every traditional birthday cake should have! YUM!
Moral of the story:
Halo Top doesn’t make a horrible flavor, it all just depends on your preference! And, of course, we can’t forget that they’re designed so that you can eat the entire pint without guilt, or without dirtying a bowl! It’s a win-win!
You can find them at most grocery stores!
What’s your favorite flavor??
