February was a big month in the frozen dessert and ice cream world! Besides St. Valentine’s Day, brands began releasing their carefully created concoctions for the ice cream season ahead. It’s an exciting time of year, with new releases soon to hit grocery store freezers.
One such release is GoodPop’s new product line of non-dairy fudgy bars, our February Pick of the Month. Available in four enjoyable flavors, you’ll have a hard time choosing just one! Read on for more news about vegan frozen dessert innovations from around the globe.
GoodPop Announces New Lineup of Non-Dairy Fudgy Bars, United States
GoodPop recently announced its first line of fudgy oat milk-based, gluten-free frozen dessert bars! These bars are just like the classic ice cream truck favorites but are non-dairy, gluten-free, Non-GMO Project Verified, 130 calories or less, and made with organic and fair-trade ingredients.
The exciting lineup includes four flavors:
Fudge n' Vanilla Crunch: Nothing "vanilla" about it, this creamy oat milk bar is a classic combination with smooth, decadent vanilla filling dipped in an irresistible chocolate fudge shell. This frozen treat is topped with organic cacao nibs and delivers a satisfying (and allergen-friendly) crunch.
Double Chocolate Fudge: Silky, chocolate oat milk filling gets dipped into a rich, fudgy chocolate shell for a dairy-free treat that's nothing short of indulgent. And hint: serving size is two pops for double the goodness.
Mint n' Fudge Chip: This 80-calorie pop was "mint" to be! Sweet and minty, made with organic peppermint leaves, this creamy mint oat milk dessert bar has fair trade cocoa chips in every bite.
Fudge n' Caramel Crunch: Take a beat and dive into the salty-sweet decadence of this chocolate and caramel oat milk pop. Creamy salted caramel filling sweetened with fair trade molasses and organic cane sugar gets covered in a super fudgy coating dotted with crunchy organic cacao nibs.
The creamy and indulgent bars come as a 4x66.5ml pack, with a suggested retail price of $5.99 USD.
