What’s New in September: Dairy Ice Cream Innovations

As of September 23, fall is in full swing here in the Northern Hemisphere. And the dairy ice cream brands are ready for it! From pumpkin to apple pie flavors – and beyond – many new flavors and frozen treats are here for us to enjoy.

One such example (that claimed our Pick of the Month) is the line-up of fall treats from My Mochi. A brand well-known for its “miraculous match of mochi dough with marvelously mouthwatering ice cream” has brought back two popular fall treats from last year. Read more about them – and many others worldwide – by diving into the article below!

  • Apple Pie Á La Mode: Made with vanilla ice cream and a cinnamon spice apple filling

Both are perfectly portioned for guilt-free snacking. They’re easy to enjoy on the go; just thaw for a minute or two and take a bite – no spoon required!

But hurry! Both flavors are available for a limited time only at national retailers, costing an average of $5.99USD for a 35g, six-count box.

The new treat was available at one restaurant in Irvine, California, for two weeks only in early September. It was sold in a 3.6-ounce container for $2.99USD. The California debut is meant to test sales and see whether a larger or eventual nationwide rollout is worth it. Wishing them great success!
