Which Halo Top Flavors Are Gluten Free? (2022)

Halo Top certifies only some of its flavors

Table of Contents

The creators of Halo Top noticed a lack of high-quality, low-calorie ice cream in the grocery store, so they set out to make a product people would love. They started with only four flavors, but because of the high demand for their products (especially for people on the keto diet), Halo Top now sells 25 flavors, which include both dairy and non-dairy ice cream options. In fact, Halo Top became so popular that by 2017, it was the best-selling pint of ice cream in the United States. All of this is interesting, but we know that you’re really here to ask, “Is Halo Top gluten free?”

This post is informational only. Gluten-Free Grubbin’ will not receive compensation in any form for mentioning these products or brands.

Halo Top Gluten-Free Ice Cream List

Here’s the scoop (Haha! Get it?): Some Halo Top ice cream flavors are certified by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization, but not all of them are. Look for the GFCO label to make sure you’re being safe.

Or, better yet, just follow this list of Halo Top certified gluten-free ice cream flavors:

  • Birthday Cake
  • Candy Bar
  • Caramel Macchiato
  • Chocolate
  • Chocolate Almond Crunch
  • Chocolate Mocha Chip
  • Dairy Free Chocolate Almond Crunch
  • Dairy Free Peanut Butter Cup
  • Dairy Free Sea Salt Caramel
  • Lemon Cake
  • Mango Sorbet
  • Mint Chip
  • Oatmeal Cookie
  • Peaches & Cream
  • Peanut Butter Cup
  • Pistachio
  • Raspberry Sorbet
  • Sea Salt Caramel
  • Strawberry
  • Strawberry Sorbet
  • Vanilla Bean

Important: Some Halo Top flavors have ingredients that don’t appear to contain gluten, but some of those products do not have a gluten-free label. We suggest you avoid these items entirely. There is a reason that Halo Top hasn’t certified those flavors, which may mean that they contain hidden gluten. My bet is that it’s hiding in the “natural flavors.” Stick to the items listed above to be safe.

Are Halo Top Fruit Pops Gluten Free?

A common question we’ve seen is, “Are Halo Top fruit pops gluten free?” The answer is: We have no idea! Halo Top’s fruit pops don’t appear to have gluten in their ingredients, but they also don’t carry the GFCO label like some of their ice cream pints. Again, we’re concerned about the “Natural Flavor” ingredient on a product with no gluten-free labeling. We’ve chosen to stay away from the Halo Top fruit pops until we learn more information about them. In the meantime, if you’re looking for a fruity cold treat, you can choose from these gluten-free Halo Top sorbet options:

  • Mango Sorbet
  • Raspberry Sorbet
  • Strawberry Sorbet

Halo Top Quality Control

Now we know which Halo Top flavors are gluten free, but let’s talk about how the company keeps consumers safe from gluten and allergen cross-contact.

Halo Top’s website has information for each ice cream flavor, such as whether it’s kosher, certified gluten free, or certified vegan. However, they don’t specify if those products are manufactured in a dedicated facility or what steps they take to prevent cross-contact between their flavors. We love to see the GFCO certification, but we need more answers to keep everyone safe. We reached out to Halo Top with our questions, and this is their reply:

Thank you for contacting Halo Top Consumer Response.  We appreciate hearing from our valued consumers.

(“Wells”), manufacturer of ice cream and frozen novelty products, follows all federal laws and regulations and is committed to supplying the highest quality and safest ice cream and frozen novelty products to its consumers.

Halo Top Customer Service

Halo Top’s response leaves us with some questions. They do have certified gluten-free products, so we aren’t exactly sure what they are talking about when they say they don’t. This feels like a canned response that may be out of date, but we’re going to do more investigating. We’ll update this article when we find out.

Halo Top’s email also doesn’t give any information regarding how Halo Top cleans and sanitizes its manufacturing lines between production runs. Without more information, we recommend contacting their customer service through their website or calling the number above to ask them questions you might have about their products.

Is Halo Top Gluten Free?

You may be wondering now more than ever if Halo Top is gluten free, but we feel confident in the GFCO certification. We also repeat our advice to stick to only the products with the GFCO label.
