    These are really good. I like the mini size. They have a nice tart flavor to them. My daughter loves them too.

    I LOVE Black Raspberry. I'm in Arizona. Where do you get those???

    Not the OP, but I believe I've seen those at Aldi :)

    Anyone ever try this brand? Weis had it in the vegan/dairy free section

    pint-cottoncandy.png

    I never thought I'd see the day where a company would combine my favorite thing (cotton candy) with my least favorite thing (beets) in a dessert I eat regularly every single night... I've never felt so ambivalent in my life... please take the leap of faith for us and try it, then report back!

    If it ever goes down in price I might take one for the team (it was $6.99).

    SD_2732_IceCream_3D_Cash_BanFoster_big.png

    I tried this the other day & couldn't put my finger on why it tasted off/funny to me. I remembered how you said you hated a lot of stuff that had pea protein in it & I looked at the ingredients & sure enough it was listed on there.

    It gave me the same sick feeling that the No Cow bars did like the ice cream was grown or ran into dirt.

    It still tasted better than this pint that I bought at Grocery Outlet months ago.

    Yup, that's most likely pea protein you're dealing with then! Not good stuff haha, although the new No Cow Energy Bars, in my opinion, are a lot better than their regular protein bars (it still has pea protein, but I think a lot less of it). If you're looking for a vegan ice cream personally I've been blown away with Enlightened's dairy free lineup, which has NO pea protein in it thank goodness!!! It's amazing!

    As for that black sesame pint... have you had other black sesame flavored products before? I wonder if they just executed it poorly, or if you just don't like the taste of black sesame... because I have a weakness for Asian flavors of ice cream o.o Black sesame, taro, pandan, basically anything besides durian and red bean. For the longest time I couldn't stop buying the Black Sesame pints by Mr. Green Tea until I started going out to lunch more with my friends and no longer had the extra calories left at night for it! :/


    @pancakerunner I got an email from Arctic Zero about their light ice cream pints now being available at Walmart! I thought Halo Top had an agreement that Walmart could not sell competing low calorie ice cream pints? Is this an exception since it doesn't have as much protein, or has that agreement expired?
    I'm shocked, but honestly looking forward to the possibility of finally finding more of their toffee crunch light ice cream which is easily my absolute favorite out of all their flavors! I can only dream of the day Halo Top releases a toffee flavored pint (or cotton candy, still waiting on that one *cough cough*)
    sb0cov76xkoi.png

    I'm not sure on the details of Halo Top's contract, but I do know that HT launched in Walmart in April of 2017 so wouldn't be surprised if it had a 2-year expiration! Since it is May 2019, Arctic Zero can now sell... curious if any other low-cal, high protein ice cream pints start selling in Walmart (i.e. Enlightened, Breyers, etc.)! @hgycta

    I'd been buying AZ at Walmart for years, before they changed the formula (and then I switched brands). I've seen it there for at least 3 years, pretty much non-stop (though they seem to have discontinued the flavors I used to buy :)).

    Walmart has always carried the Arctic Zero "frozen dessert"... not technically ice cream.
    point taken :)

    @hgycta I LOVEEE butterfinger crisps ! My second favorite candy after butterfinger. I haven’t tried them since nestle sold the brand so I wonder if they are not good anymore like the traditional bar. I hope not!

    @kellyjellybellyjelly I can’t stand pea protein either. The no cow bars..... ugh I get nauseous just remembering them lol. I thought the banana foster was really boring and underwhelming.

    I saw those beet ice creams at the store, they have a bunch of other flavors too but 6 per pint!

    Also FINALLY got these at the Burlington by me. I was hoping for a funfetti birthday cake flavor, but it’s the more bubblegum birthday cake, which I hate. So I didn’t like that one that much. Waffle cone one is AWESOME, I agree with the previous review. I used to make my own protein ice cream fluff and it was awesome. I haven’t tried the cookie dough yet, but for some reason I think they had cookie dough before not as part of the ice cream collection and I had it lol.

    I too love the Waffle Cone...also still loving the Salted Chocolate Espresso one the best. Tried the Cookie Dough a while ago - not really 'cookie dough' flavor...just found it to be 'sweet'. I too also use in my ice 'cream' - one more thing to be addicted too😜

    How do you make fluff with these?

    I use the recipes I find in the Volume Eater thread :smiley:

    They also shared this video, which is the way I make it now....
    https://www.facebook.com/MajorGainz/videos/894969973957506/

    Saw these new at the store today.... but 240 calories for only 3 tbsp and I would polish off a container easily! Looks like they have HUGE chunks of cookies and sprinkles and chocolate chips throughout.

    I didn't buy today because I was with my friend and we were just picking up party supplies. But II saw they are on sale only $1.70 per 3.5oz container.... I may go back to get one tomorrow. I think I need to try them at that price.

    Has anyone tried or seen them before?

    Ooooo I have! I tasted them at Whole Foods a while ago and ended up buying the birthday cake and chocolate chip. I probably wouldn't have but, for some reason, thought they were higher protein but I must have had Halo Top on the brain. :) They were both reeeeally good and I ended up putting them in the freezer hoping that would sway me from taking an unlogged spoonful (that usually turns in 5) every once in a while but, of course, that didn't work.

    Thank you! Definitely too high of calories for me at this point, but also definitely my crack, lol.

    Loved these! I liked the frosting layer on the bottom. This was the first flavor of the Olly cookies I've tried. It was denser than Lenny and Larry cookies and the texture is more oatmeal cookie like. Really sweet. I think I like better than lenny and larry birthday cake because I love the addition of the frosting.

    This sample bar I got was really good. I expected it to be like cookie dough balance bar but it was light and airy in the middle with a nice chocolate coating. I guess the plant based version is new. h73kjkh2a4rv.jpeg

    Thanks for the pic of the olly cookies - been wanting to try, but wasn't quite ready to take the leap without actually seeing what they looked like!

    They're good but kinda small for the calories and don't keep me as full as a protein bar

    Found this on sale at Burlington Coat Factory in the food section.

    sw5ucqbgqnqy.jpg


    I have to say, I was disappointed. It's zero cals for three pumps of foam, but the foam dissipates quite quickly. Reminds me of egg whites that aren't beaten to "stiff peaks" if that makes sense. The flavor was okay and - I may have imagined it - actually had a very subtle whiskey taste.

    I have the birthday cake version of the foam topping, and I agree, it wasn't as nice as I expected. I do still enjoy mine, though - I mix it with greek yogurt and it gives the yogurt more of a whipped and frothy texture, which I really like.

    Is Arctic Zero reformulated? I recall it being terrible and flavorless in the past, but I also heard they improved on the recipe some time ago. Is it more like Halo Top now?

    The DAIRY pints are more like Halo Top. Pretty sure the non dairy uses the old recipe... maybe some minor tweaks?

    I actually like the taste of the Yoplait flips better & they’re quite a bit less calories. Very Berry Crunch is AMAZING!!!
