Back to reviewing Arctic Zero. Not going to lie, this will be kind of hard to come back to after eating Halo Top for a week straight, but I know what to expect for the most part. I am a fan of the flavor though, so the Arctic Zero Salted Caramel pint did sound very intriguing for one of their 150 calorie flavors.
Arctic Zero Salted Caramel Review
Like their other flavors, these always look/sound much better than they actually taste. I do think the Arctic Zero Salted Caramel flavor was one of their better 150 calorie pints, but it still does nothing to change my overall opinion on them or make me a huge fan. I wouldn’t call it flavored ice like Wink Frozen Desserts, but it’s also not as creamy as Enlightened or Halo Top either. The salted caramel taste is there, just fairly subtle and not too strong. It’s elevated to a much higher level once you let it sit and melt for a bit, as the flavor really starts to stand out more the softer it gets.
The Arctic Zero Salted Caramel flavor totals out to 150 calories for the whole pint consisting of the macros 12p/28c/0f in addition to 8g fiber. Again, like all of their other flavors, the extremely low caloric content of the pint is really the only reason you would ever be looking to buy this product in the first place.
Not a bad effort from Arctic Zero I suppose, as I found this flavor to be one of their better 150 calorie pints. Certainly better than ones like vanilla maple, purely chocolate, etc. but probably not as good as others like cake batter and poppin’ pomegranate. The flavor is on the milder side for sure, but at least it’s not too strong in a bad way like their banana pudding flavor was in my opinion. If you’re on poverty macros this would be one of their 150 calorie flavors I recommend, but if you’re really not on that low of calories, then I’m not sure why you’re looking to Arctic Zero in the first place.
+150 calories for the WHOLE pint
+12g protein, 8g fiber for the whole pint
-Compared to real ice cream, not good
-Not as tasty as Enlightened or Halo Top
Recommended: Only if you’re in an extreme caloric deficit
Overall Rating: D+
