17 Guys You Date In College, As Told By Halo Top Ice Cream Flavors

17 Guys You Date In College, As Told By Halo Top Ice Cream Flavors

They're colder than your ex, but way more fun.

Ever since I discovered Halo Top ice cream, my life has never been the same.

With each pint under 400 calories and packed with tons of protein, this ice cream is truly magical. It's so magical that it helps me prove my point of how guys are just like ice cream, especially the guys that we've dated in college.

I am sure that at least one guy you've dated while in college fits one of these flavors. Get ready ladies, we're going on a tasting adventure.

1. Birthday Cake: “The Always Down-To-Party Guy”

With all the colorful sprinkles swirled in, there’s no denying that he’s the life of the party. Just like birthday cake, everyone loves him, but after awhile, it gets old and you move onto the next flavor.

Average shelf-life: about 3-5 parties that last until 4 AM

2. Rainbow Swirl: “The Guy Who Turned Out To Be Gay”

He always had a knack for picking out your outfits, but you thought nothing of it at the time. His colorful personality never failed to make you laugh, and you loved that any topic with him was fair game. After awhile though, you began to see his “true colors." He’s probably still one of your good friends.

Average shelf-life: 1-2 months

3. Pancakes & Waffles: “The Southern Gentleman”

He probably loved his truck more than he ever loved you. He’s the guy that Sam Hunt warned you about, the one that Taylor Swift inspired you to “never, EVER get back together with.” Don’t get me wrong, he was a sweet guy, but as soon as you admitted you didn’t like country music as much as he thought you did, you knew there was no future.

Average shelf-life: 3 tailgates

4. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough: “The Really, Really Good Guy Friend”

Just like a scoop of chocolate chip ice cream on a hot summer’s day, you could always count on him. He was there for you whenever you needed him, but almost too available that it made you think there was something more. Come to find out he just thinks you’re a really, really cool person and that’s all it’ll ever be.

Average shelf-life: 6-10 inside jokes

5. Pistachio: “The Guy From Another Country With A Cute Accent”

He’s one of those flavors that you’ll just never forget the first time you have a taste. You haven’t met many guys like him before, and you appreciate his openness to new cultures. His flavor speaks your language, and you’ll be sad to see him go back home.

Average shelf-life: A 16-hour layover at Hartsfield Jackson International

6. Caramel Macchiato: “The Guy Who Drinks Like 5 Coffees A Day”

There’s a good chance he wears glasses and a button down shirt almost every single day. You’ll be mesmerized by his aesthetic at first but then he’ll start to annoy the shit out of you. He’ll be so energetic all the time, it’ll have you making up excuses just so you can go take a nap.

Average shelf-life: 4 coffee dates where he talked about himself the whole time

7. S’mores: “The Guy Who Goes Hiking ALL THE TIME”

Don’t be surprised if you see him rocking the “Chaco foot tan” on a date. He’s got multiple layers to him, and while you love his sense of adventure, you’ll end up in a sticky, gooey mess of heartbreak.

Average shelf-life: until the campfire stops burning

8. Oatmeal Cookie: “The Safe Guy”

I don’t know too many people out there who would choose an oatmeal cookie over a chocolate chip one, but they do exist. He does everything that you’d expect a boyfriend to do, but things aren’t half as exciting as you thought they would be. He may still be a cookie, but he ain’t no chocolate chip, that’s all I’m saying.

Average shelf-life: 2 obligatory anniversary posts on Instagram

9. Lemon Cake: “The Guy Who Cheats”

I really hope that you don’t come across this guy, but flavors can be deceiving. You’re drawn to his upbeat personality but you’ll be left with a sour taste in your mouth.

Average shelf-life: the moment you get those screenshots that ruin your life

10. Sea Salt Caramel: “The Guy Who Has Rich Parents”

Whenever you add salt to something sweet, you’ll wonder if the two flavors will contradict themselves. This guy is just like that. He will try to impress you with his “original” business ideas, but you know god damn well his daddy paid for that Rolex on his wrist.

Average shelf-life: 4 expensive dinners

11. Mint Chip: "The Guy Who Is Different From Anyone You've Ever Dated Before"

His refreshing personality is hard to ignore, you just can't help but get sucked into his world. According to you, he's "not like the other guys," but chances are you'll discover that he's been hiding something from you all along.

Average shelf-life: 3-7 months

12. Strawberry: "The Guy You're Not Sure Why You Dated"

Nobody ever gets strawberry ice cream by itself, you've gotta add some chocolate and vanilla to the mix or else things get kinda boring. When your friends start to say, "Hey, remember when you dated-" you'll stop them in their tracks because you'll know they're talking about him. Let's just not talk about him.

Average shelf-life: i-don't-wanna-taco-bout-it

13. Vanilla Bean: "The Guy Who Always Treated You Right"

Just like classic vanilla, he could never do you wrong. His values lined up with yours; he was raised knowing how to treat a woman right. Although his actions always prevailed, and he never really did anything wrong, he just wasn’t the guy for you, and that’s okay.

Average shelf-life: 2 Valentine’s Day’s of fresh flowers and chocolate-covered strawberries

14. Chocolate: “The Major Flirt”

At the beginning, you thought he only had eyes for you, but he clearly enjoyed being the center of attention a little too much. As much as you wanted to make things work, you never understood why he wanted to give everyone else a little taste. The whole time you were thinking, “Let’s not pass the spoon around, he’s all mine.”

Average shelf-life: 4-5 death stares whenever you caught him checking someone else out

15. Cookies & Cream: "The Guy Who Was So Obsessed With You”

This is one of the most addicting flavors, making it the perfect depiction of this guy. He pretty much convinced you that you guys were going to get married. You totally ate it all up, but then he wouldn’t stop texting you constantly and you wished you'd never opened the carton.

Average shelf-life: 48 unread messages and a missed phone call

16. Mochi Green Tea: "The Really Smart Guy Who Did All Your Homework"

Don't tell me you haven't heard a girl in your class say, "Oh, I just had my boyfriend do it for me." Can he do my homework too? He's not like the coffee guy, he's obviously way smarter than that and drinks green tea, instead.

Average shelf-life: a semester's worth of calculus assignments

17. Peanut Butter Cup: "The Guy You Never Thought You Could Get"

For some reason, this flavor is always hard to find. When you do find it, you're thrilled but also kind of dumbfounded standing in aisle 7. This guy is sexy, every girl wants to be with him, but don't let it get to your head.

Average shelf-life: 5-8 months

8 Reasons Girls Who Love Tequila Are Better

Because if she can handle tequila, she can handle you too.

There are all kinds of alcohol stereotypes out there but the one associated with tequila is probably the worst: tequila makes you crazy. But if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that women who drink tequila are one-of-a-kind.

Whether it's loving or fighting, you'll never find anyone who does it better than a girl who just straight up loves tequila, and here are a few reasons why that is.

1. She's independent

A girl who drinks tequila is probably the same girl who has absolutely no problem telling it like it is. She knows what she wants and goes after it.

2. She doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks

Oh, you have a problem with me taking shots and having a good time? Well, get over it! Bartender, a shot with salt and a lime please!

3. Always dancing

Tequila is an 'upper' so instead of sitting at the bar doing nothing, let's dance! Let's get moving!

4. There is never a dull moment

Speaking of dancing, a girl who drinks tequila is always down for a good time. Whether it's going on an adventure or seeing who can take the most shots, a tequila girl is always down to party.

5. While everyone else is starting to get sleepy, she has all the energy

Like I said, tequila is an 'upper' so while the other girls at the bar are starting to feel groggy and sad, she's all over the place having fun and partying on the dancefloor.

6. She's stronger than the girl crying over a vodka cranberry at the bar.

Sad over a breakup? Don't go for the vodka... Tequila will make you feel better in no time! Plus you can challenge the hot guys at the bar to a shot taking contest.

7. Tequila is healthy for you

Tequila is a probiotic, so some tequila a day keeps the doctor away. Yay for shots!

8. She can hold her own when it comes to alcohol

Any girl who can shoot some shots at the bar all day and night can handle alcohol, which means she can handle herself too. You won't have to deal with her constant breakdowns and mood swings because she will be too busy ordering more shots.

A Saturday In The Life Of A Freshman

Welcome to Darty Season


Have you ever had a more stereotypical freshman's Saturday than my friends Maddie, Lauren, Jocelyn, Meg, Barbara, and I? Keep reading to see a packed day in darty season from a freshman's point of view.

9:00 am

My alarm that I meant to set for the day before goes off. I begrudgingly roll over, and turn it off, falling back asleep.

10:00 am

I finally wake up, roll, or jump, out of my lofted bed, grab my laptop, and do a little studying for my exam on Monday -- there's no time for that later today, so I've gotta get some of it done then.

10:30 am

Shower. Pick an outfit. Brush teeth. Makeup. Pack a bag of extra clothes.

12:00 pm

I walked downstairs to the lobby to meet two of my friends who were gonna walk with me to Tutweiler Hall.

12:30 pm

My friends and I at the fundraising event

Elizabeth Gainey

We arrived at Tut, met our friends, then left to go to a philantropy event at Sig Tau sponsored by B+, an organization that assists the families of children diagnosed with cancer. Their burgers and fries were top notch.

2:30 pm

The Hackberrys, a band comprised of UA students, played the event. We left to go back to Tut after a few songs.

3:00 pm

We finally got back at Tut, changed clothes, listened to music, hung out.

3:45 pm

We *finally* left for Pike (sorry mom!). You know how long it takes five girls to get ready, so don't act so shocked.

4:10 pm

Myself, super escstatic about having to wait in a mob of people to get in

Elizabeth Gainey

Have you ever arrived to a frat when it's at capacity? Yeah, around 100 screaming girls were shoving to get into the darty. It was an experience like no other, but eventually, we made our way in. It may have been in groups of two, and we definitely lost a girl to the crowd (she's fine!), but we made it.

6:30 pm

After dancing on an elevated surface or two, walking in circles around their courtyard, watching an active climb into a basketball goal, and waiting in a way-too-long line for the restroom, we decided to go back to Tut.

6:45 pm

We definitely made a stop to grab a snack or two on our way back to Tut.

7:15 pm

After realizing that none of the parties at night were gonna start until around 10 pm, we decided to watch some random YouTube videos and Netflix to pass the time. There was also another stop for snacks at the infamous Julia's on the first floor of Tut.

9:30 pm

My third outfit change of the day. We decided to leave Tut for frat row for the third time that day, too. I wanna say my total steps for the day was around 17,000? It was a lot.

10:00 pm

Best view in the house (Myself on the left, Maddie on the right)

We got to Sigma Pi as the party was just starting to build up. Their band room was filled within the hour, and they had a pretty good DJ. Although the active yelling at me and my friend to get off the stage was no fun.

11:00 pm

Have you ever faked out a frat boy with a soccer ball? Well, now I can say I have.

12:00 am

After someone pulled the fire alarm on Sigma Pi, we decided to walk back to Tut.

12:45 am

My two Ragecrest friends and I decided to take the bus back because, after the stretch to and from frat row three times, we had no more walking left in us.

1:00 am

Canes chicken tenders. Enough said. It's the way to end a night.

It was a very packed, but very fun and eventful day. We pretty much hit all the spring semester stereotypes: walking along and to frat row, going to a darty, going to a frat party, going to a philanthropy event, and more. As crazy as the day was, I highly recommend trying a day like this once because you won't forget it!
