I've seen this advertised but haven't tried. Have been making my own low carb ice cream. Basic Ice Cream - Briana Thomas

I make the whole batch in my counter ice cream maker and freeze the batch to use during the week.

Where do you get Halotop? I've looked in my local grocery store and the Walmart neighborhood stores, and I haven't seen them.

on the link I added, you can search locations at the top of the page and put in your zip code to see where they sell it in your area

Just tried it last night. I got the peanut butter flavour. I got it at Meijer's in Michigan. It tasted ok to me, a bit sweet. I found a half cup serving was good. I also bought some Breyer's low carb ice cream and will try that when the Halo top is gone.

I've been wanting to try it myself but just haven't yet. Sounds like a good cool down after a long hot bike ride.

I bought Blue Bunny low-carb vanilla dipped chocolate ice cream bar. They are pretty good.

I've had it, some of the flavors are really good. I've never been real big into ice cream so I only eat a couple spoonfuls at a time, max. Enlightened is another brand. I just tried bryers carb smart I think it's called. Not bad, but I like the halo top better.

Just wanted to add I did try the Breyer's Carb smart and prefer it and is a lot cheaper than Halo top. Only thing is I can only get chocolate and vanilla so definitely Halo top has more interesting flavours.
