    Today I picked up Lemon Cake Halo Top and Frozen Hot Chocolate Enlightened. Can't wait to try them.
    I usually eat 1/4 to 1/2 of the pint at a time, just a couple of times a week - so I have been able to avoid any potential intestinal distress.

    Have you made it through all those yet?

    I bought a pint of mint chocolate chip a few months ago but am still hesitant on trying it. I prefer to save calories for regular ice cream.

    Epic. Haha! I regret not stocking up while they had the BOGO sale running. I have a deep freezer I could have totally stocked up like you clearly have lol!

    Just make sure you don't eat it before you have to do something. There is a certain group of people who are quite sensitive to the heavy load of artificial sweetener (it might be eryithritol, I can't remember) and it can cause intestinal distress. But if you're okay with that, then enjoy!!

    I'm glad I don't suffer from any of the side effects others are listing because this is seriously the best thing that ever happened to me ( food wise :lol: ) Now if only I could find a salty crunchy miracle snackaroo I'd be set :tongue:

    Still working through it, have a few left, lol. The grocery store had a BOGO sale and we took full advantage of it.

    I found a pint of vanilla in my freezer yesterday that I thought I had thrown out. I gave it another shot and just couldn't do it. Something about the texture and chemically way too sweet taste just turns me off to this stuff.

    You're supposed to let it thaw for a while though.

    I'm another non-fan. Not so much that it tastes chemical-y or otherwise bad to me, nor that my digestive system rebels.

    I just find it curiously unsatisfying, like I just ate nothing.

    I'd rather eat Greek yogurt with some chocolate PB2 and frozen fruit, or budget for an individual cup of Edy's slow-churned, or even for actual gelato.

    I threw out most of a pint of Halo Top recently (after trying 3-4 different flavors previously). It just never seemed worth even its paltry calories. <shrug>

    Oatmeal Cookie I really like from Halo. Though now at my local grocer, Mariano's (subsidiary of Kroger's), they have several competing brands that I have grown to prefer over Halo. Low Cow in particular, and it's cheaper.

    How much is Low Cow? Walmart has Halo Top for $3.88.

    Bows down! I thought my recent purchase of 27 Ben & Jerry's Confetti Cake (limited edition flavor to Walmart last December & now at Grocery Outlet for $1.99) was good, but this puts my stash to shame haha.

    I just bought a pint of the peanut butter cup (my favorite flavor of ANYTHING) for about $4.50. If I like it, I'll get some more only when it's on sale... it can be one of my "treats" that I only buy when I can get a deal. Can't try it today; calories are just about where they need to be.

    Here's my problem with Halo Top deliciousness....if I really let it sit long enough to get soft and awesome, it's virtually impossible for me to eat just one serving. Pint done and done.
  • Yuck! It tastes salty to me. I'd rather have real ice cream, just less of it.

    I like mint chip. The cookies and cream had a weird flavor to me. I ended up throwing it away. Even though I live with a teenage boy who inhales ice cream on a nightly basis, no one would eat it.

    Have you tried keeping it on the freezer door? Mine is perfect eating consistency right off the door after more than 24 hours in the freezer.

    I do like it, and I don't know if I would have noticed an aftertaste unless I'd already read so many reviews that said it had one, so I was looking for it. It's something that will definitely help keep me out of more calorie-heavy frozen desserts, so it will serve its purpose.

    I'm ready to find the Halo Top Gingerbread!

    I've given up on finding the other newer pints.

    I gave it a try with mint and chip and it was disgusting I couldn't eat it and threw it out. I'm scared to try another flavor.
