Halo Top, a six-year-old company that makes low-calorie, high-protein ice cream, is now the best-selling pint in U.S. grocery stores.

... In 2016, Halo Top sales reached $66 million, up 2,500% from the previous year.

Don't know whether to put this under investments or water cooler. I've eaten about a gallon of it since mid-July while on transitional keto. No horrific impact on weight.

Just got the chocolate peanut butter.

It's good. 10/10 would invest.

I forgot to add that Halo Top doesn't give my digestion anywhere near the problem that regular ice cream does --though there's a bit of it.

To keep calories low, Halo Top uses the zero-calorie sweetener Stevia. For added sweetness, it also uses organic cane sugar which is still sugar and erythritol, which is a type of sugar alcohol. While many sugar alcohols are thought to be linked to gastrointestinal problems, Gans says erythritol is typically less potent than others. Halo Top also uses prebiotic fiber, which Woolverton says is a natural type of fiber derived from plants like chicory root, to give the ice cream more texture and body.

Stevia  ...Louise & I hate the taste of Stevia. But we cannot taste it in HT.

Got to try this.

>Stevia

Good to know.  I feel safer with Stevia as the artificial sweetener than the others, although the taste in soda does not work with every flavor.

>try this

It's not keto, for sure, but it's not too bad as indulgences go.

It's very filling with all that protein. Doesn't seem to set off carb-cravings. Other than my very slight "sugar & milk" reaction, it feels a lot like I've eaten a good serving of cheese re hunger afterward.

Texture is ever-so-slightly off, not quite as creamy as ice cream ...but I haven't seen anyone let that stop them from eating the pint, hhh.

The assault on the end of summer has officially begun. Starbucks made a Pumpkin Spice Latte announcement on Thursday, and recently, people started noticing that pumpkin pie flavored M&M's have already hit the shelves.

Yeah, it's lighter. Slightly whipped consistency. Easier to eat straight out of the freezer.

Halo Top's new terrifying commercial will have you screaming, but probably not for ice cream

Tried Halo Top. Flavor was very good, texture was not. Really icy and airy. But it didn't upset my stomach like most other ice cream does.

And $5.49 a pint is pretty spendy.

I can see them riding a big wave of popularity but soon I would guess Ben & Jerrys, Hagen-Daaz, or some other big manufacturer will come out with a similar product and gain back their market share.
