It was only last week that Halo Top announced seven additional flavors to their roster. We were blessed with additions like "Pancake & Waffles" and "Rainbow Swirl." Well, Halo Top has another pint up their sleeve, and I have a feeling you're going to be very excited about this addition. Just in time for fall, the low-calorie ice cream brand is releasing a pumpkin pie flavor.
Who needs a PSL from Starbucks when you can eat ice cream? No one, that's who.
Halo Top is known for plastering calorie counts on its packaging, but not for just one serving calorie quota or two. Instead, the brand puts the total calorie count for an entire pint. In the case of the pumpkin pie ice cream, slated to release next week, an entire pint is 360 calories.
This level of transparency is likely why the brand has made its way to being the best-selling pint of ice cream in the United States. According to Ad Age, Halo Top has experienced a 2,500 percent spike in sales from 2015 to 2016. This growth translates to more than 13.5 million pints sold.
The pumpkin pie flavor is up there in calories relative to other Halo Top options, but it is still a healthy choice compared to other decadent frozen treats. Plus, Delish notes, citing USDA data, that a slice of pumpkin pie will set you back 316 calories and a grande Starbucks' cult-favorite Pumpkin Spice Latte contains 380 calories. So why not indulge in an entire pint of ice cream instead?
If you have to get your hands on this flavor, know they are only available in supermarkets while supplies last. So, hurry up!
