FIRST UP! The review!

HALO TOP CREAMERY ICE CREAM
 You know whenever there's a treat out there "healthified", I gotta try it! I contacted the people over at Halo Top and they were nice enough to send 4 flavors for me to sample! Strawberry, Lemon, Vanilla Bean, and Chocolate!

 Here's what the company claims!



 And when they said ridiculously good, they were NOT kidding.
When I first got the "over-nighted" package on my doorstep, I was soooo excited! I immediately took them out, let them sit out a bit (they recommend doing this because they tend to freeze harder because of the ingredients and the fact that they don't put as much sugar in it!) and took a spoonful of each flavor to try them out!

They were all sooo true to their flavors! I expected them at first to taste nasty, healthy, and overall... like "healthy" food... no real flavor, etc etc. But I was SO wrong.

The strawberry tasted sweet and had a wonderful strawberry taste, the lemon was tart and sour, the vanilla bean tasted just like every other vanilla bean out there, but with less fat, carbs, and calories, and added protein, and the chocolate was spot on melt in your mouth fudgy chocolate flavor! Check out the nutrition facts and ingredients! IT'S INSANEEEE!

If you want to see if they sell in stores near you, check them out at their site! You will most definitely NOT regret trying it!

Thanks so much Halo Top for letting me sample your amazingggg ice creams!
