Ice Cream Review! Arctic Zero in Purely Chocolate

Last year, I posted a review of Halo Top . I was unimpressed and never bought it again. This year, I kept seeing Arctic Zero at my local supermarket and decided to give it a try. The main reason I really didn't like Halo Top is because of the dry and flaky consistency it has. It does not resemble ice cream at all. Seriously.
