Food Review: Halo Top Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream

I have been hearing about this pumpkin pie flavor from Halo Top since September.  We looked in every single big box grocery and department store with a grocery section for MONTHS trying to find it.  Tasters were swearing it was the best thing they ever put in their pie holes and they were going to start hoarding it.  Well, I believe it because we couldn't find that stuff to save our lives.  

It wasn't until stopping by a random health food store that we saw the last pint to which I grabbed it and hissed at anyone who looked to see what the fat girl had in her cart.  It wasn't a high cal day so we had to squirrel it away for another day.  But then came the day to see if it lived up to the hype.

Here's what it looks like and good luck ever finding it:

Here's the nutritional information which means that if you split it with your sweetie, you're only in the calorie bank for 180 calories but you'll get 10g of protein so, score.

I'll admit, I opened it up and thought it looked a little bland.  No flashy orangey color and no evidence of crust which is why I assume they called it pumpkin pie in lieu of pumpkin ice cream.

But everything looks better in a ramekin so I stopped overthinking it and the Mr and I got down to it.

So how did it taste?

If you tried to take that spoonful for yourself, you'd have come back with a stump.  It's as good as they claim.  There are pieces of crust like bits in there but I don't think it's actually crust.  (At least it didn't look like it when I let the rest of the ice cream melt around them on the spoon.  I wasn't gonna take a pic of that.)  But I don't care what wizardry makes the crusty stuff, just that it tastes like pumpkin pie on a spoon without the texture of pumpkin pie weirding you out.  Hey, I didn't like pumpkin pie for a long time because the texture made me gag.  Then I made gingersnap pumpkin pie and that all changed for me but I digress.  If you can find this, buy it.  Don't even think about it.  Don't ponder it.  Just throw it in the cart on the way out and thank me later.

Now to find the new Gingerbread House flavor and buy a freezer for the garage.

Have you tried the pumpkin pie flavor?  What's your favorite Halo Top flavor?

  1. I'll have to give it a try. I have heard about the brand at ww but not that flavor!

  2. I liked the taste but wasn't sure what the leftover crumbs were til I remembered it was pumpkin pie and not just pumpkin ice cream. It has a really good spice to it too, which was a bold move on their part and I think it paid off.

  3. The only kind I have tried is the chocolate (I'm a pretty plain kind of gal) and I really liked it. And I got it free with a coupon that Meijer had so that made it taste extra good. LOL

  4. I like halo. I don't get it often due to price but enjoy on occasion. Thanks for the review.

  5. Love the Birthday Cake flavor! Also the Lemon. I will definitely try to find that pumpkin pie flavor. Thanks!
