Thoughts about Halo Top High Protein Ice Cream?



Recommended Posts

http://junkbanter.com/2016/10/20/review-ranking-17-halo-top-flavors/

I haven't tried this yet, but am interested in learning more about as a "special occasion" treat versus every week treat while I'm working to lose weight. Have you tried it and what do you think?

I love it. It has better macros than most yogurts.

I have about 1/2 a serving size 35 grams weighed on the scale, with my Protein brownies.

I tried the vanilla (pre-surgery) and wasn't wowed, but it was one of the lower "rankings" on that site, so maybe another flavor would be better. It wasn't creamy like ice cream.

The Mint chocolate Chip is pretty good. You are supposed to let it sit out for 10 minutes or so, otherwise it can taste icy.

I love the strawberry. That and sugar free popsicles are a life saver for me.

I tried chocolate mint it's OK it just tasted a little gritty to me. The chocolate was a bit smoother but they're good????

I like the strawberry and the lemon.

The thing is, if you go like 6 months on Protein shakes and dense Protein. They will taste pretty delicious.

They don't taste like regular ice cream and that is fine, they are not regular ice cream. I like that they don't taste like regular ice cream, it is a reminder and keeps me mindful of my eating.

Like I said I usually just have 1/2 a serving, just a little taste is enough.

I have tried it. For whatever reason, ice cream of any kind feels like I have a block of cement in my stomach. I have even tried lactose free.

i have finally decided it is the cold that my pouch simply cannot handle.

The boyfriend likes it but I think it tastes chalky and gritty. I'd much rather do regular ice cream in the 100 calorie sizes. Klondike bars makes 100 calorie versions and that works better for me.

Where can you buy it? I'm in NC and haven't found it in any grocery store near me.

These are the nutrition facts from the site.

nutr-lemon%404x.png

If you subtract the Fiber and the sugar alcohol, it has 4 net carbs and 6 grams of Protein. I have it with http://www.eatmeguiltfree.com/collections/brownies/products/blondie-brownie

If you compare it to regular ice cream, well there is no comparison as far as carbs and sugars go.

I had this off and on since 6 months and I still managed to lose like 100lbs pounds having a little once or twice a week.

I haven't had any in a while, because it is freezing, but as long as ice cream isn't a trigger for someone I don't see an issue.

Also how fresh the halo top is, seems to have an effect on the taste. Some cartons taste better than others, you want to buy it some place with a high churn rate.

@@Kaylamh Whole Foods has it, all the other places that have it around here are local places that you wouldn't have.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
