Summer’s here, the weather is heating up and it’s time for ice cream! Whether it’s for after camp, a sundae bar or dessert for a BBQ, we have pints and treats in the frozen aisle to suit everyone’s taste. Here are some of the latest options for a creamy treat:
My/Mo Mochi: Creamy meets chewy and silky meets soft in these luscious balls of ice cream wrapped up inside squishy mochi dough, made with sweet rice flour. Select from such flavors as Cookies & Cream, with crisp, chocolatey cookies inside the ice cream, tangy, Sweet Mango, and velvety Green Tea.
ENLIGHTENED: These pints are filed with good-for-you ice cream that doesn’t compromise on taste. This ice cream is high in protein and high in fiber while low in sugar and low in fat, bringing a creamy indulgence when you want to keep it healthy. It’s available in flavors such as Triple Chocolate, Caramel Oatmeal Cookie Crunch, and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip.
Blue Marble: This organic ice cream from Brooklyn, NY, begins with super-premium, certified organic dairy and other high-quality ingredients and the company cares for the world through its sourcing, business practices and community involvements. This is ice cream that’s free of hormones, antibiotics, harmful pesticides and artificial additives. Their dairy is certified organic, sourced from pasture-raised cows. And the flavors are simple – such as Vanilla, Chocolate and Midnight Mint Cookie – without any sugary candies or preservatives.
Magnum: Made to be broken, Magnum now offers a pint you can crack open! Featuring a crunchy outer shell lining the pint that needs to be broken before you eat it – just like their ice cream bars, it’s something you can now enjoy by the spoonful. Just take the pint out of the freezer and allow it to soften for 10 minutes. Squeeze the sides of the pint and listen for a crack. And enjoy! Find it in the store in flavors such as White Chocolate Vanilla and Dark Chocolate Raspberry.
Vice Cream: Life can be so vanilla. Live life and dig into indulgent, locally made Vice Cream. Each pint of Vice Cream is made with super premium ingredients, such as sea salt truffles, pecan pralines and over-the-top flavor. Try exciting flavors like Afternoon Delight, vanilla ice cream, packed with cookie dough, sea salt caramel truffles, caramel and fudge ripple, or Choc of Shame, chocolate ice cream with chocolate brownies and chocolate shavings mixed in.
Coolhaus:Coolhaus co-founders Natasha Case and Freya Estreller started baking cookies, making ice cream, and combining them into “cool houses” in 2008. With backgrounds in the design and real estate fields, they began naming their ice cream sandwiches after architects and architectural movements that inspired them – and eventually decided to take their newfound passion to their hometown streets in Los Angeles. They’ve now turned their creations into unique, sweet-meets-savory pint flavors, like Milkshake & Fries, Buttered French Toast and Campfire S’mores. All Coolhaus ice cream is made at a 20% overrun, making it extra-creamy. Each pint is handcrafted with hormone free, California milk, cage-free eggs and fair trade chocolate.
Snow Monkey Superfood Ice Treat: Cacao Cinnamon, Goji Berry and Matcha Green Tea. These superfood flavors are the fuel of this vegan, paleo ice cream. Snow Monkey wildly foraged for the optimal combination of superfoods, fruits and seeds, to blend into these pints. It’s smooth ice cream packed with protein, antioxidants and fiber, and free from major allergens.
Van Leeuwen Artisan: This ice cream brand started in 2008 out of a truck on the streets of New York City. The company set out to revive the classic American ice cream truck and the art of traditional ice cream making using natural ingredients perfected by nature, not science. Roche Bros. is now offering the company’s line of vegan ice creams, made from scratch with just a handful of fresh ingredients in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. In flavors that include Salted Caramel and Mint Chip, their Vegan scoops are made with their own cashew milk, organic coconut milk, organic extra virgin coconut oil, organic cane sugar, pure cocoa butter, and organic carob bean.
