What’s New in March: Dairy Ice Cream Innovations

This month, we have some incredibly fun new dairy ice cream products to look for in the freezer aisle! One of them, which we’ve chosen as our March Pick of the Month, is a kids’ ice lolly that contains 30 percent less sugar than its leading competitors. This brightly-hued ice cream treat from Jude’s tastes like the tropics – and looks like it, too, with its real apple, mango and strawberry juices contents. Besides this fun new product, we’ve got plenty of others to review from around the globe. Let’s get started!
