    Halo Top and Enlightened are the best, in my opinion. I'm slowly(ish) making my way though each flavor.

    I tried Arctic Zero a couple years ago. Salted Caramel, my weakness. It was glorified brown water. Ick!

    I've had several Halo Top flavors and been disappointed in all of them. They have a very chemical aftertaste. I'd rather eat ice cream less often but indulge in the real thing. Plus, the mix-ins hardly exist. The mint chocolate chip pint I bought had about five minuscule chocolate chips.

    I don't mind Arctic Zero at all. I actually LOVE the maple vanilla flavor. To me personally it's perfect. Halo Top is too sweet for me. :blush:

    Halo Top is good.

    Arctic Zero needs a lot of additions to not taste like sad ice milk.

    THAT'S what the AZ tastes like! I had a box of their chocolate covered ice cream on a stick, and I couldn't figure out why it tasted like nostalgia. My grandma used to give us ice milk pops...

    My grandfather was diabetic and ALWAYS had ice milk in his freezer. Usually had fur on it because it was so disgusting he wouldn't even eat it. :D

    I'm okay with AZ, but prefer Halo Top.... Fairly simple person with my favorite being Halo Top Vanilla Bean with a nuked cinnamon apple on top. Yum.

    I've only had birthday cake Halo Top but found it enjoyable.

    Arctic Zero... I tried them before the packaging rebranding and couldn't force myself to stomach them. I've tried five different newer pints and can say:
    -Don't bother with the creamy pints. They're all crap.
    -Same with most of the chunky. Cookie dough is okay if I really want volume, have cash to burn, and don't feel like driving to a place with Halo Top.
    -The only flavor that was worth anything was A Little Chippy. The biggest difference between this and other pints is that the base has an actual vanilla flavor. I picked up a pint a while back at the 99 Cent Store and bought all pints I could find in my next visits.

    I love Halo Top. Arctic Zero, on the other hand, tastes like it's made with the tears of human sadness.

    I'm thinking now that I might have to stop by Whole Foods on my way home and grab a pint of Halo Top or Arctic Zero...

    Cake Batter Artic Zero is yummy and only 35 calories per serving. I add some walnuts, dark chocolate chips, and fat free whipped cream (high carb day I add 1/2 a banana for a sundae look). Sometimes I add a little bit of Blood Orange Olive Oil..shocking but it makes it taste like creamsicle...mmmmm. Can't say enough...I make room in my diet for this ice cream treat every day and it doesn't mess up my macro.

    Artic Zero cool mint chip, snickerdoodle, and cookie dough flavors are yummy too but they are 75 calories per serving, whereas I can have more of the cake batter flavor at 35 calories per serving....mmmm! Personal preference - I'm not a fan of the other flavors...I wish they made the butter pecan flavor taste better...missed opportunity on that one. Enlightened ice cream are amazing (bars and pints) but they have more calories and fat...but great cheat/treat items for sure.

    For the price arctic zero is very disappointing. The taste/texture is off and tastes super diety. Ive never tried halo top but will give it a shot after these reviews. My personal favorite at slightly higher calories and around 4.5$ per pint/box is Greek frozen yogurt. High in protein and calcium with probiotics and around 100 calories. Tastes "real" too lol.

    Edit: yeah enlightened are a personal favorite of mine :)

    We love Halo Top, but we thought Artic Zero tasted like disappointment. The lemon cake halo top doesn't taste very lemony to me. It just tasted like vanilla icecream. Oatmeal cookie is my favorite and I loved their mint chocolate chip even though I don't like mint chocolate chip icecream.

    I am currently eating Arctic Zero in Cookie Shake flavor. For 150 calories a pint I give it an A+

    I'm dying to try Halo top, but at $12 a pint (Australia) i just cant bring myself to buy it. That would be $6 per bowl :noway:

    Halo top is delicious but destroys my tummy (I'm lactose intolerant) and arctic zero is really quite good! I go through soooo many pints of both. My body is happy, my wallet is not.
