After years of watching Americans post their pictures of Halo Top ice cream and going on and on about how amazing it is, I finally broke down and bought one this evening. The $8.99 price tag kept me away up until this point, but the Sobeys in Montague had it on sale for $5.99. It's still far more expensive than ADL ice cream which you can get for $3.99-$4.99 when it's on sale, but I digress.
I decided to try the Birthday Cake flavor since it's lower calorie and the net carb count is lower compared to some other flavours. First impression was that it was sweeter than I thought it would be but after a couple of spoonfuls I felt like it had the taste and texture of watered down ice cream.
On a scale of 1-10 I give it a 5 or 6. This would fall under my "Won't be buying again category". Sorry for any fans out there! If I want ice cream bad enough, I'll be sticking with my regular ADL ;-)
