Halo Top Review – Candy Bar!

Halo Top Review – Candy Bar!

July 18, 2019 9 By William Morgan


it’s time to continue running the
gauntlet of Halo Top flavors with one of
their new ones, Candy Bar –coming right up!
Hey guys, Aaron here. Welcome to A.D. Keto, your weekly dose of all things ketogenic
diet.Today, we are continuing my series
of ‘Running the Gauntlet of Halo Top
Flavors’, with one of their new ones, huhCandy Bar. Now, I love me a candy bar… I
used to love me a candy bar. I was a big
Snickers fan, and obviously I haven’t had
anything any such things in about the
past… eight, nine months, since I’ve been
doing keto. So I’m very curious to see
what this flavor is all about. I’m
hopeful, just based on the looks of the
packaging, that it is sort of a… it looks
like it has sort of a… caramel and peanut
crunch thing going, on which makes me
think Snickers, so if it tastes like a
Snickers, I’ll be kind of happy, because
Snickers does really satisfy. [weeping] As I’ve
said before –, maybe you haven’t seen any
of my other reviews of halo top flavors —
I will link them up in the cards above
me, but I break these reviews down into
three main areas: the first is the
texture. That’s the biggest thing for me.
Is it a smooth texture? Is it a chalky
texture? Is it tough for me to get out of
the container? that’s my biggest thing. I
want it to be nice and smooth — effortless
scooping. And so that’s number one. Number
two is the taste. How does it taste,
relative to my preconceived notions of
what it should taste like, based on its
title? So, I’m assuming this will taste
like a candy bar,
hopefully a Snickers. That’s the second
part of the review. The third is the
carbs. So ultimately, how many carbs does
this thing have, and will I be able to
down the whole pint in one sitting?
Based on how it’s been going with these
new flavors, probably not. So, let’s get to
it. As always, the packaging is on point. I
love their little phrases that they have
on the lid. “Bottoms up, calories down.”
Ha! So clever… All right, there’s what it
looks like when I open it up. Now, it looks
like I’m seeing some… like, that looks
like it might be some sort of nut chunk,
and it does look like it’s gonna be a
little smooth, though I gotta say, just
taking a glance at it, it looks… there’s
like a middle ground texture, um, for me,
and it’s kind of like that… it’s like, icy, almost… not icy, but sort of frosty?
This looks like it might be one a’ dem.
So I’m gonna dig in here, and see how
it’s looking. Yeah, a little… a little bit
of work. Not fantastic. I mean, it’s been
out of the freezer for about 5-10
minutes while I’ve been setting up this
video, so it has had a chance to sit out
of the freezer, not being cold. But yeah,
that’s a little… it’s a little frosty, so
you know. I’ll see how it tastes inside
ma mouth. Oh man, again. Initial impression
is that it’s a blast of sweet. Each of
the new flavors that I’ve tried has
been unbelievably sweet, more… much moreso
than the original flavors, and even
the flavors that came after that, in like,
the second wave of flavors that Halo Top
released. Incredibly sweet. So I’m gonna
take one more scoop, and it’s coming out
okay. I just gotta let it sort of heat up
a little bit. But it does look like it
has — I don’t know if you can see — some… some nuts.
Oh — don’t fall out of there. Some like, some
nuttiness in there, and it doesn’t taste
incredibly like a Snickers, which is what
I was kind of hoping for. I’m trying to place
what candy bar I would call this.
That’s really a tough one, because it’s not
Snickers. It’s not like a Butterfinger.
Okay, so all in all, the taste is not
terrible. I’m getting some caramel in
there — I feel like there’s some caramel
coming through — and I do like the… as far
as the texture goes, the nuts do add a
little bit to it. But taste? I’m not super
super thrilled with. Very, very sweet,
which, like I said before, my… my sweet
tooth is not what it once was, so it’s a
little overpowering on the sweetness
department, for me anyway. And it doesn’t
taste really like any candy bar I’ve
ever eaten, so — it tastes like caramel and
nuts, which I guess is… every candy bar. So
Texture? B+. Taste? B. And carbs– let’s
see. 16 total carbs. There are three
dietary fiber 5 sugar alcohols. So 8
grams of carbs per serving. This entire
pint — you’re looking at 32 grams of net
carbs, which is not fantastic, again, but
none of these new flavors, I think, are
gonna get you into that 20 to 25 range.
They all seem… Actually I take that back.
The Rainbow Swirl, I think, if I’m not
mistaken, was 24 net carbs I think it was
six grams per serving.
This guy is eight, putting this pint at
32 grams of carbs. If I had no carbs
throughout the day, I would probably
consider eating this entire thing. I tend
to keep my my carb intake at between 25
and 30 grams a day, so if I had a really
good day, and ate zero carbs throughout the
day, I could get away with eating this
for dinner. [weeping] I don’t think that I would,
though. It doesn’t really blow my hair
back. It’s a little bit… it’s okay. It’s
fine. But definitely not my favorite of
the flavors I have reviewed so far. It’s
360 calories, which normally means…at
least in my experience, means that it’s
going to be tasty. And it technically is,
but it’s just a sweet taste that I’m not
nuts about. Let me just check the
ingredients here real quick. So it’s got
a caramel swirl and a chocolate swirl
the ingredients here. The caramel swirl
has corn syrup, nonfat milk, sugar, butter,
salt, natural flavor, and soy lecithin. The
chocolate swirl has sugar, sweetened
condensed skim milk (which is made of sugar, water, and nonfat
milk solids), corn syrup, coconut oil,
butter. So there’s there’s a lot of stuff
in here, I’m seeing a lot of sugars in
here. How many grams of sugar? So it has
seven grams of sugars. So ingredient-wise, this is not thrilling me. Taste-wise, it’s
not thrilling me. Candy bar: not not my cup
of tea. So let me know if you guys have
had this Candy Bar-flavored Halo Top.
What did you think? Am I completely out
of my mind? Is it the most delicious
thing in the world? Am I maybe… not crazy?
Is it a little too much? I’d love to hear
