The low-calorie ice cream is being sued for “routinely” under-filling pints
Two Californians are scooping a lawsuit onto Halo Top Creamery, with the plaintiffs alleging that the ice cream tag is “routinely” and “dramatically” under-filling the increasingly renouned low-calorie pints.
Gillian Neely and Youssif Kamal filed a 13-page complaint earlier this month opposite Eden Creamery LLC, accusing Halo Top’s primogenitor association of shop-lifting the American consumer.
Neely and Kamal were dismissed up after they “unknowingly paid for a full pint of Halo Top ice cream but did not accept a full pint,” and serve claimed that the code “knows it is short-changing the customers, but refuses to do anything about it.”

Noting that Halo Top advertises the calorie count “per pint” on the ambiguous containers of “guilt free” ice cream, Neely and Kamal lay that those containers are “routinely under-filled… dramatically so at times, and as a course of business.” They also claimed the that the low-calorie inlet of the diet ice cream might upset consumers into being confident with less-than-filled containers.
“Purchasers of the premium-priced ice cream simply have no thought how much ice cream they will get each and every time they buy a Halo Top ‘pint,’” the ask states. “And Halo Top has been doing this for years.”
The plaintiffs serve point out that Halo Top is entirely wakeful of the issue, citing a “low fill form response” available online for customers. Notably, they serve state that Halo Top has surpassed absolute competitors including Haagen-Dazs and Ben Jerry’s to emerge as the best-selling pint of ice cream in the U.S, with over 50 million pints sole since the start of 2017.
Representatives for Halo Top returned Fox News’ ask for criticism with the following statement:
“We have never and would never “under-fill” our pints. Product settling can start from time to time due to all from feverishness fluctuations to altitude changes during shipping and handling,” a orator said.
