I honestly have no idea how I got selected to receive a giant box filled with ice cream, but I ain’t even mad about it. When I opened this box I had no idea what to expect inside. I had briefly read about the new flavors, but since none of my local stores carry the pints, I shielded myself from such envy.
I was so excited to see such a variety of flavors. I immediately cracked open the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough… and then read that I needed to let it soften.. pfft… so I stuck it into the microwave for 15 secs haha worked like a charm. My goodness! It was delicious! I got about a quarter through the pint when I realized I could taste the Erythritol. I saw it was one of the ingredients, but felt it would be ok since I can’t usually taste it in cold products since it’s fitting with the cooling effect of Erythritol. But for the average person, this is no concern. I’m just super sensitive to it for some reason, and in certain products it will give me migraines; but nonetheless it did not keep me from enjoying every last bite! .. and with no migraine! So, A+ guys.
The next flavor we tried was the Caramel Oatmeal Cookie Crunch. Oh yasss babes. This one was UHmazing. My fiance and I were literally fighting over spoonfuls of it.
The Triple Chocolate was very tasty at first, a very strong chocolately-fudgey flavor, but the Erythritol was pretty strong on this one. Enough so that my fiance could also taste it. I didn’t venture too much further into that one.
Next up was the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. Just a good ol’ straight forward yummy ice cream. Not mind blowing, but not bad. A tasty enjoyable experience for the peanut butter lover.
The Sea Salt Caramel was one that was emptied first. That one was most enjoyed by my fiance. He says that one was his favorite out of the bunch. I enjoyed it as well, save for the Erythritol flavor after a few bites. But the caramel swirls were the very best part.
Mint Chip is just stupid delicious. Any kind of mint chip ice cream has been my favorite since I was young. This one was super creamy but not overpowering as the Halo Top mint chip is, in my opinion. A big thumbs up on this one.
And last but certainly not least… My favorite one! the Frozen Hot Chocolate ❤ ❤ ❤ oh myyyyy. This one guys, incredible. Chocolate ice cream with chocolate chips snuggled around creamy marshmallow swirl. I was in heaven. To my delight, I also didn’t notice any Erythritol flavor whatsoever. I even had to read the ingredients a couple times to make sure I didn’t miss it. I don’t know how they disguised it in that one, but good job guys. By far my favorite of the bunch!
Yeah. That happened. I wasn’t letting any of that one go to waste!
So the verdict! – If you want an indulgent ice cream, these are def for you. How do they compare against Halo Top? Honestly, I can’t pick one over the other. They both have certain qualities on their own. Halo Top has a more light and refreshing texture/flavor. While the Enlightened flavors are more decadent. Halo Top does though offer a lower carb count, if that is important to your lifestyle. But the carb count on the Enlightened pints are just as reasonable if eaten by the serving size. Which is actually pretty damn accurate. Due to the richness of the flavors, the serving size is exactly how much you will find yourself wanting. Overall, def a good product and im so happy I got to try it!
