Halo Top Just Dropped a Seasonal Flavor That You’ll Find Quite Peachy
Memorial Day weekend marks sunnier days ahead and means it’s time to start filling our freezers with frozen treats. If you, like us, live on ice cream during the warmer months (and year round, TBH) we have some mouthwatering news: Halo Top just dropped a new seasonal flavor, Peaches & Cream!
Chances are you’re already familiar with Halo Top — aka the brand that magically transforms ice cream into a healthier, low-calorie, and high-protein version of the stuff without compromising on flavor. Case in point: the new pint of Peaches & Cream taps in at 320 calories (yes, for the *entire* pint) and 20 grams of protein. Most importantly, this flavor practices what it *peaches* thanks to a creamy, dreamy base of vanilla swirled with hunks of the classic, summertime fruit.
If you happen to live in New York City, start shining off your spoons: Halo Top is bringing a soft-serve version of the peachy flavor to its first ever East Coast popup shop Supermoon Bakehouse, open May 31 through June 3. EACH DAY, the first 150 ice cream super-fans to arrive can score a free serving of the new flavor swirled inside a cruffin (croisstant-muffin). In case peaches aren’t your thing, the pop-up will also serve some OG flavors including vanilla and peanut butter cup. The Bakehouse — which happens to be *super* Insta-worthy — will open at 8am each day. If you ask us, ice cream is obviously an acceptable breakfast.
Can’t swing a trip to the Big Apple? You can still snag the peachy pint at your local grocery store. However, you’ll want to act quickly. Just like summer itself, this flavor will sadly disappear the end of August. Stock up, and save a taste of summer for a (literal) rainy day…
Will you be digging in to the new Halo Top Peaches & Cream flavor? Let us know @BritandCo!

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
