I’ve seen plenty of ice creams being advertised as vegan and dairy free but in all honesty I’ve never been much of an ice cream eater, this did however intrigue me. It was the halo top which also has the added bonus of being low in calories and what I really wanted to try was the salted caramel flavour. Unfortunately I couldn’t spot this in the freezer aisle at my local Tesco, so I grabbed myself the peanut butter cup one thinking this should be good as I do love a bit of peanut butter. I was disappointed ☹️ it didn’t taste very nice, the texture was thick and stuck to the sides of my mouth and I just did not like the taste. It hasn’t put me off wanting to try the salted caramel flavour version in future, I’ve been told that the normal non vegan halo top ice creams are good (they do a mint choc chip!) so any non vegans should probably give this a go.
This experience did leave me wanting to try more ice creams, it’s like I got the flavour of it by having those few mouthfuls which meant the next time I went shopping I found myself dawdling down towards the ice cream aisle 🤦🏻♀️ Again, there was no halo top salted caramel in the vegan section so either I’ve completely dreamt this up or it’s a very popular flavour! I did however see a salted caramel and almond Alpro tub 🤭 no, it wasn’t a low calorie option but yes it was the flavour I’d been craving and yes it was delicious!
I could easily make my way round all the vegan ice creams in the supermarket (hang on 🤔 that is an idea 😃), but I won’t be going near the halo top peanut butter cup and I will certainly be wanting more of the Alpro salted caramel and almond 😋😋
