Halo Top’s Vegan Options Arrive in Canada!
For any Canadian feeling like they are melting in this summer heat, there is a silver lining: Halo Top’s vegan options are finally making their way up north.
The initial launch includes four options of the non-dairy line just in time for July 15, National Ice Cream Day.
According to the press release:
“The four vegan-friendly flavours include Peanut Butter Swirl, Toasted Coconut, Birthday Cake and Chocolate. Canadian fans, who have been counting the days to get their hands on these dairy-free and vegan-friendly pints, can find them at select Loblaw banners, select Sobeys banners and Metro Ontario beginning mid-July.”
The company released seven new coconut milk-based vegan options to its existing dairy-free line last year, and the four coming to Canada are a mix of both. Doug Bouton, President & COO of Halo Top, stated:
“The response to Halo Top’s launch in Canada has been incredible. Canada was our most requested country before launching there earlier this year and, after launching, our non-dairy pints became our No. 1 requested item from Canadians. So, we listened and responded as quickly as possible, just in time for Canadians to enjoy for the rest of the summer!”
A serving of Halo Top contains 80-100 calories and 6-8 grams of sugar, adding a “guilt-free” appeal to this frozen sweet treat.
While I’m very excited about the news and am happily planning a review, I have to confess surprise at the fact that Vanilla Maple didn’t make the Canadian cut!
