Whatever else is happening in the world today, we can proudly say that we're living in a golden age of new ice cream creations. Whether you prefer cones or soft serve, and no matter what your favorite flavor is, it seems like every week there's an exciting new treat.
We thought nothing could top New York's spiked ice cream, but the latest inventions from McDonald's and Dairy Queen are proving to be tough competition. Still, the most talked-about ice cream trend of the year is Halo Top - a new kind of diet ice cream.
Halo Top, along with other brands of "healthy ice cream" - yes, really - market themselves as an alternative to the classic frozen treat that won't fill out your waistline. You've probably noticed this brand and other copycat products popping up like crazy at your local grocery store.
A bold claim, but can they back it up? Yes and no, as we discovered when we put this low-calorie ice cream to the test.
While it's true that each pint of Halo Top has less calories than your usual choice (less than 400 calories per pint) there are reasons to be wary, so don't load up your cart just yet.
