San Francisco, CA /PRNewswire/ - Today, Lotus Bakeries, the makers of the world famous Biscoff cookies and the original cookie butter, announced the introduction of a new line of super-premium ice cream coming soon for US distribution.
This family-owned company from Belgium has developed the quintessential ice cream by marrying dairy cream with crunchy Biscoff cookies and the original cookie butter. The ice cream offerings include both pint and bar formats. The pints will be available in 5 velvety flavors all with crunchy Biscoff cookies and cookie butter inclusions: Original, Chocolate Brownie, Salted Caramel, Belgian Chocolate Chip, and Blueberry Cheesecake. The Lotus Biscoff ice cream bar, or 'heaven on a stick,' will initially come in 1 irresistible flavor. The original cookie butter ice cream is dipped in a layer of delicious cookie butter and then enrobed in a creamy layer of Belgian chocolate. Lotus Bakeries prides itself on the quality of its products which is why all SKUs have no added colors and use carefully selected non-GMO, no RBST ingredients.
Lotus Bakeries' roots date back to 1932 and they have been cultivating universally loved, quality products, like Biscoff, ever since. Through Lotus Biscoff's popular line of cookies, and cookie butter comes ice cream - the natural progression for the Biscoff family of products as they continue to expand their current product line beyond the beloved Biscoff cookie.
"Biscoff is exploding in the US and we can't be more excited to bring the beloved Biscoff taste to ice cream," said Michelle Singer, Lotus Bakeries U.S. General Manager.
Lotus Biscoff's line of super-premium ice cream is scheduled to launch in stores in pints in July 2019 and bars in October 2019. Retail roll-out is ongoing, yet it will be available at participating Safeway/Albertsons chains in Northern California, Oregon, Idaho, and Arizona with many more chains coming soon.
