I’m not sure how true this is, but I’ve heard that the Halo Top Lemon Cake flavor is their most popular pint of ice cream for 240 calories (the other 240 calorie flavors being chocolate and vanilla bean). I don’t know, I find that kind hard of to believe because I didn’t think lemon was too popular as a flavoring, but maybe the ‘cake’ aspect is a game changer. I had some skepticism going in because I don’t really like lemon cake or lemon pie for that matter, but I tried to keep an open mind.
Halo Top Lemon Cake Review
I don’t think making an effort to keep an open mind was really necessary, as the flavor ended up being too good to overlook. To my surprise, I thoroughly enjoyed the Halo Top Lemon Cake pint, quite a lot actually. Not as much as their other flavors I will say, but considering I normally detest lemon based desserts, the fact that I even enjoyed this at all means it was executed pretty damn well. The lemon taste is there, but it’s not too sour or tart-like and is really balanced out by the sweetness of the cake flavoring. Overall, the lemon flavoring wasn’t as strong as I anticipated which really made me happy.
The Halo Top Lemon Cake flavor totals out to 240 calories for the whole pint consisting of the macros 24p/58c/8f in addition to 20g fiber. These are the same exact macros and calories as their chocolate and vanilla bean flavors, which means they’re every as bit of amazing.
If you’re a big fan of lemon pie, lemon cake, or lemon based desserts in general, then I’m sure you will LOVE this flavor. The Halo Top Lemon Cake pint is quite a treat and sure to satisfy any sweet, lemony craving in a healthy way. While I will say this has been my least favorite flavor of Halo Top so far, that’s only because I don’t really like lemon cake as a flavor or dessert in general. If you do though, then I can definitely see how you would really enjoy it and why it got so popular in the first place.
