Vegans and dairy-averse ice cream lovers: If you’ve been itching for, tweeting at, or sending carriers pigeons to Halo Top, hoping to secure just one dairy-free flavor, the company heard your pleas and happily complied. The cult-favorite, sort-of healthy ice cream purveyor just announced not one, but seven vegan-friendly flavors.

But what took them so long?!? According to Justin Woolverton, Halo Top founder and CEO, “It took a long time to ‘get it right,’ but we’re absolutely thrilled with the outcome.” Better late than never is always a true sentiment when it comes to creamy vegan treats.

Using coconut milk as a substitute, the brand re-created seven of its most in demand flavors.

Using coconut milk as a substitute, the brand re-created seven of its most in demand flavors—Peanut Butter Cup, Chocolate, Oatmeal Cookie, Sea Salt Caramel, Caramel Macchiato, Cinnamon Roll, and Chocolate Covered Banana. 

Halo Top’s popularity stems from its innovative flavoring (Mochi Green Tea, FTW) and healthier-than-most nutritional content (with 240 to 400 calories and around 20 grams of protein per pint). The new vegan offerings are no different, ranging from 280 to 360 calories and 12 grams of protein per pint, which is an added bonus when you’re living that meat-free lifestyle. But, as tempting as it may seem, beware of polishing off a pint in one sitting: Stevia helps keep Halo Top’s calorie counts low, but too much of the artificial sweetener might be a setback to your health goals.

A spokesperson from Halo Top said that while they can’t confirm the next vegan flavor offerings, “we can say that we are definitely excited to offer these vegan options to our fans, and although nothing is certain yet, we are looking forward to hopefully doing more in the future!”

The ice creams are available online now and will be in grocery stores by mid October, which is just in time for a Netflix-filled hygge season.

In the meantime, stock up on some dairy-free Haagen Dazs or make your own nice cream.
