seasonal ice cream

We love Halo Top ice cream. We always wanted an excuse to eat an entire pint of ice cream by ourselves, and the universe answered our prayers. The low-calorie, high-protein ice cream is the healthiest version of the classic dessert that we’ve ever seen, meaning it’s acceptable to eat twice as much. Just in time for the holidays, Halo Top has released a seasonal flavor that has our tastebuds crying tears of joy: gingerbread house.

Can you believe it? Now you get to enjoy your Christmastime gingerbread house without actually having to lift a finger to make one. The deliciously creamy dessert packs pieces of ginger cookies and a swirl of frosting. True to the brand’s philosophy, the pint contains 360 calories and a whopping 20 grams of protein. If you’re thinking you should replace your post-workout protein shake with this, yes, yes you should.

Halo Top has been making headlines quite a bit lately. It was recently announced that tomorrow, they will open their very first brick-and-mortar store, which you can find in the Westfield Topanga Mall in Canoga Park, California. (Expect long lines, friends.) We also learned that being the best-selling pint of ice cream in grocery stores isn’t enough: now, Halo Top is setting out to rule the world of soft serve. What’s next — low-calorie, high-protein cake? Cookies? Brownies? Just a few suggestions, guys…

To all the other ice cream shops out there… sleep with one eye open. There’s a new dessert in town.
