Halo Top Review – Chocolate Covered Banana!

Halo Top Review – Chocolate Covered Banana!

July 18, 2019 2 By William Morgan


Chocolate-covered bananas — my review of
the new Halo Top flavor, coming up. Hey
guys, welcome to A.D. Keto, your weekly
dose of all things ketogenic diet. I am
Aaron. If this is your first time here,
welcome! I’ve been doing a series of
videos centered around reviewing the
newest Halo Top flavors. I’ve done three
so far. I’ll put a card up above me maybe
here? Maybe here? Here. It’s a playlist of
the ones I’ve done so far, and today,
we’re doing chocolate-covered banana — two
things I really love — chocolate and
banana. I’ve been catching a lot of heat
from my wife, because this thing has been
sitting in the freezer, tempting her for
the last few days, and I’ve been like, “Please, let me just do a review of it first
before you dig in.” She’s like, “Fine.” So
again, these reviews are broken down into
three parts. Part one: texture. What’s it
feel like?
Is it easy to get out of the cup? Is it
chalky? Is it frosty? Is it smooth? Second
part: taste.
How’s it taste based on my expectations?
This should taste like a chocolate-covered
banana. And the third part is the carbs.
How does it hit the carbs? If the
previous flavors are any indication, this
guy is gonna be a little bit heavier on
carbs than the original flavors. So let’s
get into it!
Chocolate-covered banana. Again, maybe
they ran out of ideas? Starting to see
the same labels here, Halo Top. It’s okay.
It’s okay. No bowls. No regrets. No bowls?
No BOWL, no regrets. I do like it. It’s a
nice touch.
Uh-oh. There it is. It’s looking like it
might be a little bit frosier than the
other ones that I’ve had recently, but
first things first: let’s scoop out a
little bit of this and see. Yeah, I mean
it’s pretty smooth. It’s pretty smooth. It
came out of there relatively well. I feel
like it’s between
frosty and smooth, which is fine. But
let’s do the the taste test. Okay, it’s
mostly banana. Like, that was… that bite
was almost completely banana, even though
I scooped from like, the brown part.
Brown part. BROWN PART.
Unless that’s like.. these bananas are
going bad? I’ll try to get a little more
chocolate here. Yeah, um…
Tastes like bananas. Not quite as sweet
as the last few flavors I’ve done. I’ve
noticed the new flavors have been really,
really sweet, pretty much across the
board. Like, shockingly sweet. Upon first…
and again, this is a little less sweet. I
like it, but there’s not a whole lot of
chocolate coming through. It’s kind of…
the banana is very overpowering, which
I’m fine with. I really… I haven’t had a
banana in eight, nine months, and I like
bananas, so it’s a welcome taste. As far
as the carbs go, let’s take a look at the
nutrition information here. 15 grams of
total carbs, three dietary fiber, five
sugar alcohols. So that puts us at seven
grams of net carbs per serving, times
four servings — this is 28 grams of carbs
if you wanted to eat the entire pint.
Totally doable for me on a normal day, if
I’ve have a good day, carb-wise, or if I may
be doing intermittent fasting, and this
is among the first things I eat all day.
I could eat this whole thing and still
be okay,
still probably be in ketosis. I try to
keep my stuff, my carbs between 25 and 30, so this is this would be on the table,
literally, for me. Five grams of protein,
280 calories, 2.5 grams of fat. That 280
calories means 70 calories per serving,
not 280 per serving. That would be…
holy crap. So there you have it. I’m
pleasantly surprised with
chocolate-covered banana. I wish that
more of the chocolate flavor came
through, but it’s good. I like it.
Let me know if you guys have had this
flavor yet. Where’d you get it? I haven’t
been able to find this anywhere
since the first day I happened upon it.
I’ve been looking all over for the
rest of the new flavors haven’t found
any yet, bu… kind of scarce. So let me
know if you guys have had it. Let me know
where you found it. Let me know if you
liked it, and let me know what your
favorite flavor of Halo Top is in general. If
this is your first time here, please
consider subscribing! It’ll really help
me grow the channel, and that’s gonna do
it. I hope you have a fantastic day, and I
will see you next time.
