Halo Top Pops Exist, and They’re Better Than the Pints
If you’ve ever found yourself wishing that you could take your Halo Top mobile, your time is now. The better-for-you ice cream is now available on a popsicle stick in four flagship flavors including Mint Chip, Peanut Butter Swirl, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Strawberry Cheesecake.
Just like the pints, new Halo Top Pops are low calorie. They have just 50 to 60 calories and 7 to 10 grams of protein per serving. With that being said, don’t expect to see a huge chunk of ice cream when you take off the wrapper. These diet-friendly pops are portion controlled, which is helpful because if you’re like us, you don’t quite know when to call it quits. Guilty as charged. But there are six per pack, so if you want another one, it’s totally fair game.
Thanks to our buddies at Halo Top, The Daily Meal was able to sample new Halo Top Pops before their official launch, and we really enjoyed them. In fact, the flavor was actually a lot richer than what you get in the pints and the mouthfeel wasn’t as grainy. It tasted like real ice cream. Say what?
“I had the strawberry cheesecake one, and I really liked it,” one taste tester said. “It didn’t have that grainy texture Halo Top’s pints oftentimes have. I also have an issue with portion control (like a lot of people with ice cream), so I liked the small size of these pops. They’re the perfect after-dinner treat.”
In celebration of the new product, Halo Top will be taking over Vanderbilt Hall at New York City’s Grand Central Terminal for one day only on February 14. There, the creamery will hand out 30,000 pops for free while supplies last. Fans elsewhere can get in on the action by following this link to Halo Top’s website, where they can enter to win a box for free. Just enter the code “HALOTOPPOPS” at checkout and keep your fingers crossed!
Halo Top Pops will be available via retail starting in February in the Midwest, Texas and California, followed by the Northeast, and will roll out to select national retailers in May 2019. Can’t wait? Get them online starting February 5 at the Halo Top Shop for $48 for four boxes or $68 for eight boxes. Like your treats sans stick?
