Halo Top Creamery is thrilled to bring its dairy-free flavour options into New Zealand for the first time with four delicious new tubs. The dairy-free and vegan friendly range will include Sea Salt Caramel, Toasted Coconut, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Caramel Macchiato. Beginning April 1, Halo Top’s new dairy- free flavours will join its popular dairy selection already available in Countdown, New World and PAK’nSAVE.
“We’ve been thrilled with the fan response since launching Halo Top into New Zealand last year and have heard many requests for our dairy-free tubs.” said Doug Bouton, Halo Top Creamery President and COO. “Our Kiwi fans have made it clear that they more want dairy-free and vegan frozen dessert options, so we’re excited to deliver on those requests!”
Halo Top’s dairy-free launch in New Zealand is well-timed, as the country has seen a massive demand for vegan and dairy-free food alternatives, and was recently ranked third most popular country in the world for veganism.
The brand’s vegan flavours range from only 280-360 calories and only 16-24 grams of sugar per tub (i.e., 4-6 grams of sugar per serving). Made with coconut milk, these dairy-free and vegan friendly flavours still deliver on the exceptional taste for which Halo Top is known. While two of the flavours are vegan versions of Halo Top’s current dairy selections, two of the tubs will be completely new flavours for Kiwi fans.
The new vegan versions of the existing dairy tubs include:
- Dairy-Free Sea Salt Caramel: Perfect for a luxurious self-indulgent treat, this flavour balances sweet and salty with luscious caramel swirls and a touch of sea salt – now with a coconut milk base.
- Dairy-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough: Swap your raw cookie dough obsession with this classic vanilla flavour packed with cookie dough bites and bits of chocolate.
The brand-new flavours include:
- Dairy-Free Toasted Coconut: Flakes of toasted coconut add a sweet surprise to this creamy coconut tub serving up tropical vibes.
- Dairy-Free Caramel Macchiato: This creamy coffee ice cream packed with caramel ribbons will have you heading to the freezer, instead of your usual coffee shop.
Halo Top began stocking its classic dairy flavours in New Zealand’s leading supermarkets in September 2018. The dairy range includes: Chocolate, Sea Salt Caramel, Birthday Cake, Peanut Butter Cup, Candy Bar and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
