Low-calorie
ice cream company Halo Top has launched a number of its dairy-free products in
Canada after multiple requests from residents.

Range

Four of the
brand’s vegan friendly flavors – Peanut Butter Swirl, Toasted Coconut, Birthday
Cake and Chocolate – will become available from mid-July.

The
products contain 80 to 100 calories per serving, a lighter alternative to
conventional dairy and dairy-free ice cream, which can contain over 300
calories per serving.

Most
requested item

The company
reportedly received a number of requests for the dairy-free pints from
potential consumers since the recent launch of its dairy range in the country.

President
& COO of Halo Top Doug Bouton said:
“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.”

The pints will soon become available at select Sobeys, Loblaws, and Metro Ontario stores.
