In Halo Top’s first foray beyond freezers and into the baking aisle, the brand is giving ice cream lovers and sweets connoisseurs a way to indulge in their favorite baked desserts. The new formulations, launching during the coldest winter months of the year, arrive at no better time for consumers to warm up with single-serve cake cups prepared in the microwave as well as traditional brownie and cookie mixes prepared in the oven. The feel-good sweets include:

  • Halo Top Light Cake Mix Single-Serve Cups: Available in three classic and coveted flavors – Chocolate, Strawberry and Birthday Cake. With only 170 calories per single-serve cup, the light microwaveable cake mixes have 1/3 fewer calories than the average of the five leading prepared cake mixes*.
  • Halo Top Light Brownie Mix – Fudge Brownie: Fudge brownies are rich and velvety yet light at only 90 calories per brownie, 1/3 fewer calories than the leading regular brownie mix*.
  • Halo Top Light Cookie Mix – Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip: Bake up a crowd favorite cookie with only 80 calories per cookie, 1/3 fewer calories than the leading prepared chocolate chip cookie mix*.

“Halo Top was founded on an idea to make a lower calorie ice cream that doesn’t sacrifice flavor and indulgence. We’ve been constantly innovating products to give consumers indulgence they can feel good about,” said Halo Top Brand Manager, Peter Gargula. “We can’t wait to bring our loyal fans into the baking aisle in this trusted extension from cold to warm with Halo Top Desserts.”

Manufactured by General Mills, these new light desserts combine Halo Top’s best features – great tasting desserts that won’t derail consumers on the path to wellness – with the high-quality standard of General Mills products.

Halo Top Desserts will be available at Walmart and Kroger stores in early February with additional national availability coming this summer. Suggested retail prices are $2.89 for the light cake mix single-serve cups and $4.99 for the brownie and cookie light baking mixes.
