  1. I am really enjoying the chocolate covered banana. It is quite satisfying. The texture is pretty creamy.

  2. Jenni Foster on

    This is the most disgusting ice cream ever. I came online to see if I wasn’t alone. I bought peanut butter, chocolate and sea salt caramel. The sea salt caramel is about the only one I can stomach. The other 2 taste like chemicals. It’s kind of gritty but I wouldn’t care if they were actually edible. I’m mad I bought 3 pints at once. I was so excited to finally see this brand go dairy free. I usually just make my own dairy free ice cream so I’m not use to real stuff at all and don’t have much to compare it too. I just know the taste is horrible. Between the chemical taste and maybe the pea protein I think it’s just a miss.

  3. I love all the dairy free, gluten free flavors, my favorite being the sea salt caramel. My gluten and dairy intolerance made ice cream a no-no for me…until HALO came along. THANK YOU! Please keep those delicious DAIRY-FREE/GLUTEN-FREE flavors coming!!! We go through at least a pint a day in my house:)

  4. I LOVE halo top dairy free frozen desert. My favorite is chocolate covered banana, I think I eat a pint a week (of just that flavor)! I am lactose intolerant and when I finally took it seriously, I was bummed that meant no more ice cream, especially halo top. I love how halo top is low calorie and good protein! I just wish I knew where all the newest flavors of dairy free halo top can be found, but I will always be happy with my chocolate covered banana!!!

  5. I’ve tried three of the Vegan/ dairy free Halo Top ice creams, which are Peanut Butter cup, Cinnamon Roll, and Chocolate Chip cookie dough. I think it’s great that there is another brand making vegan ice cream but this brand does not make good vegan/ dairy free ice cream. The texture is all wrong and the flavors taste little to nothing like what it’s claiming to taste like. The three that I’ve tried all had a grittyness to it and has a very strong protein powder taste and smell. Maybe if they used less proteins and change from coconut milk to Almond or cashew milk, the flavor and texture would be much better. This ice cream is not worth your money, well for the dairy free ones at least.

    I just finished a pint of dairy free (over a few days) of the oatmeal cookie. It was quite creamy, there was no gritty texture whatsoever. There are little pieces of oat which are chewy and delicious. It was not bland at all. I found all aspects of it to be quite good.

    I do not eat regular ice cream due to health reasons. I imagine that if I were used to delicious, sweet, ultra creamy real-milk ice cream, I might not like this so much. But if you put it in a category with other frozen desserts like it, I would have to say it is at the top of the ranking.

    • I’m relieved to hear this after hearing this doesn’t taste great. Is it better tasting than simple old n’ice cream (banana based vegan ice cream?)

    I have purchased the banana-chocolate flavor and also the chocolate in the dairy free and liked the banana best. I sprinkle it with a few dairy free mini chocolate chips, as I don’t see much chocolate in it. My only wish is that they would better distinguish the dairy-free from the dairy cartons as it is easy, when you’re in a hurry, to pick up the wrong one….as I did this Saturday. I had company and needed to run to the store to pick up some dessert and decided on getting the Halo Banana-Chocolate dairy free and instead, got the carton made WITH dairy…so hope this will help anyone else who might do the same,.

  8. I have been non dairy my whole life so I have tried all I could get my hands on ,when I was young dairy free ice cream was not heard of !! Now I of course have my favorite flavor of dairy free halo top but they are all AMAZING,the texture is wonderful (not grainy at all)
    There is nothing not to love !!! Thank you so much Halo Top for making this ,I’m allergic (not lactose intolerance) to milk and this is heaven sent!!!!

  9. I love Halo Top! So far Cinnamon Roll and Red Velvet are my favorites. I did not experience any of the negative comments reflected above. I am a fan for sure. I just wish it were not so expensive.

  10. I tried the Halo Top Caramel Macchiato for the first time and enjoyed it. It was not perfect. While the consistency was very creamy, it also have a bit of graininess. The flavor, however, was good and I was happy to see there was no coffee in it. I can’t have coffee so was curious to see how this would taste and it surprisingly resembled coffee. There was a slight aftertaste, but not too bad. There could have been more caramel, but for the number of calories, this was a satisfying treat for someone who can’t have dairy ice cream!

  11. I’ve tried a couple of the DF flavors. Oatmeal Cookie was ok. The consistency was a bit grainy-as in I could feel the oatmeal. Currently, I have Caramel
    Machiato. It’s pretty good. I expected a bit of a coffee flavor, but didn’t get any. Also, I would have hoped for much more caramel swirled throughout but there is very little. The overall consistency of all of their DF desserts are almost like whipped ice cream-light and fluffy, melts very quickly. I am SO excited to try Birthday Cake and Pancake and Waffles sounds interesting. I would LOVE if they started bringing out seasonal flavors like pumpkin pie! We DF eaters miss out of such things.

  12. Sandy Phillips on

    I have tried many of the flavors and while they are all tasty, I do not like the texture as it accumulates at the back of my throat. It seems to be gritty, though it is tiny micron particles that might just be my palette. The chocolate covered banana is my favorite. We can find them here at our local target and HEB stores now, plus whole foods.

  13. Brittany Daniels on

    This is Brittany Daniels. I have tried a lot of different dairy free ice creams out there. For me a lot of the dairy free Halo Top Ice Creams I tried so far either don’t have enough flavor to them or the ice cream base has a nasty aftertaste to it. The best flavor I found so far is the Chocolate covered bananas because I could really taste the banana in the ice cream base. One thing I didn’t like about the chocolate covered bananas ice cream was I couldn’t taste the chocolate at all. I wish they would use natural processed chocolate instead of the alkalized processed chocolate they used in the dairy free Halo Top ice cream flavors because natural processed chocolate has more flavor to it than alkalized chocolate has to it and plus natural processed chocolate is healthier for you. I found the dairy free Halo Top Ice Cream at a Kroger Grocery Store in Tucker, GA where I currently live. Maybe if you are having trouble locating the dairy free Halo Top Ice Cream please check to see if a nearby Kroger Grocery Store carries them at all.

  14. The Halo Top caremel machiatto is great! The peanut butter is good, but not as much my personal preference. I like the consistency – creamy, smooth and YUMMY!!
