News: Blue Bunny - New Cadbury Ice Cream Bars and Other New Products

Blue Bunny is out with a lot of new ice cream products this month. They have new Cadbury ice cream bars, new no sugar, lower-calorie "Sweet Freedom" ice cream bars and ice cream, a couple of new flavors inspired by celebrity chef Duff Goldman, and a new snack-sized version of their Champ! Cones.

The new Cadbury Ice Cream Bar features Blue Bunny ice cream dipped in a Cadbury chocolaty coating. These snack-sized bars come 8 to a box and come in four varieties: Caramello, Double Chocolate, Vanilla Chocolate, and Chocolate Almond.

On the no-sugar-added tip, there's new Sweet Freedom ice cream treats. Besides no sugar added, all varieties have 150 calories or less, eight grams of fat or less, and 30 grams of carbs or less per serving. The new Sweet Freedom product line includes: Sweet Freedom Snack Size Ice Cream Bars in Raspberry & Vanilla, Caramel & Vanilla, and Chocolate & Vanilla; the Sweet Freedom Fudge Bar; Sweet Freedom Vanilla Ice Cream Cones; and 10 flavors of Sweet Freedom Ice Cream.

Celebrity chef Duff Goldman, best known from the Food Network show, Ace of Cakes, inspired two new cake-and-ice-cream flavors: 24 Karat Carrot Cake and Cup O' Coffee Cake.

24 Karat Carrot Cake features carrot cake flavored ice cream swirled with cream cheese frosting flavored ice cream and carrot cake pieces. While, Cup O’ Coffee Cake takes coffee ice cream and low fat cinnamon ice cream and throws in cinnamon sugar swirls, pieces of golden cake, and crunchy streusel. Both varieties are available in half-gallons and pints.

The new Champ! Snack Size Ice Cream Cones features the standard chocolate-coated sugar cone filled with vanilla or chocolate ice cream dipped in chocolate and topped with peanuts. Each box of 10 comes with both chocolate and vanilla ice cream so there's a bit of variety.
