New Products for 2021

Besides my disappointing weekly grocery run, I did sneak a quick peek at my local Wegman's and Stop & Shop freezer aisles this week. Yeah, nothing new. I suspect it will be at least a few more weeks before I find anything exciting. So, let's check on news from the web!

Probably the biggest news so far is that Ben & Jerry's Topped has come to the U.S.! I've seen these on some European instagram accounts for a few years now so it's about time that we got them too. (my quick internet research shows that the U.K. got these in 2017). I'm sure some will see this as just a gimmick, but you know I love me a good #funfactor. I think I'd probably start with PB Over the Top (review here) or Salted Caramel Brownie and end with Whisky Biz.

Ben & Jerry's also has new non-dairy flavors: Americone Dream, Phish Food and Karamel Sutra Core (wow, a non-dairy core flavor!). All are almond milk based. I should probably include the recent Colin Kaepernick's Change the Whirled which is sunbutter based.

I'm a pretty big fan of the Gelato Layers lineup so I definitely approve of these four new flavors. Plus, they all sound good to me: confetti cookie (review here), strawberry shortcake, cookies & cream, and chocolate pretzel. For good measure, we'll also get two new gelato flavors: honey graham and vanilla peanut butter swirl. Doesn't it feel like we've seen vanilla peanut butter swirl before? But we haven't. You can check my list to verify.

The new Magnum Double Red Velvet tub should be fund. We'll also be greeted by three new truffle bars. Two mini truffle bars (dark chocolate and berry) and full size double chocolate vanilla. The truffle description isn't super specific... I thought they might have a soft shell but the website says it's still a cracking shell. 

In their grouped PR release, Klondike adds Wake Me Up Coffee Donuts (with 3 flavors from 2020, there are now 4 in all). 

That said, they have also released Klondike Cones! (not to be confused with Klondike Kones) and Klondike Shakes (vanilla and chocolate). The cones come in two packs: (Unicorn Dreamin' and Vanilla Chillin'), (Nuts for Vanilla and Classic Chocolate), and (Double Down Chocolate and Classic Chocolate). Note: while not officially listed on their website, there appears to be a small image for a combo pack that includes a strawberry flavor and a vanilla flavor.

Will we see anything from Edy's or Dreyer's? Probably not. Yes! The Rocky Road collection is coming! Also, on the made by them but not listed as them, we will get Fruity Pebbles & Cocoa Pebbles ice creams as well as a Funfetti ice cream. Apparently there is also a watermelon version of the sour patch kids light ice cream coming as well.

Breyers Double Chocolate Browne Batter, Chocolate Pretzel Swirl (Feb), Reeses snack cup, Coconut Fudge (seasonal: march-august), 
almond milk (non-dairy): mint chocolate chip and chocolate chocolate chip
carb smart expansion to pints (3 new flavors + vanilla)

Good Humor Vanilla Viennetta (formerly Breyers)

Popsicle Mango, Strawberry & Vanilla Fruit Twister

Jeni's White House Chocolate Chip ice cream, Everything Bagel ice cream,
and Buttercream Birthday Cake ice cream

Snickers Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Bar (nationwide in March)

Chipwich has released a new Cookies & Cream Chipwich!

Blue Bunny Load'd Bars: this is not surprising after they gave us Load'd Sundaes and Load'd Cones. Flavors are bunny tracks, super fudge brownie, strawberry shortcake, and cookie dough (so similar to the cone options).

@candyhunting posted two new Lotus Biscoff pints (one with cherries and one with banana ice cream and chocolate chips). She has also mentioned an upcoming white chocolate version of their ice cream bars. Will I try any of them? meh.

Can't wait for the red velvet magnum. And it's amazing the topped line finally made it's way west.

Danielle said...

I'm very excited for the Topped line. I saw on IG ppl loved and tried the strawberry Topped and loved it so I'm eager to give it a try. Nostalgia awaits that Vienetta so I'm gonna look for it and see if it matches my memories of when I was a kid

Sascha said...

Will definitely be on the lookout for the Red Velvet tub, the chocolate pretzel Talenti and the Biscoff pints, especially the banana.

Mark said...

Here we go! I've been wanting a coffee flavored Klondike bar for a long time and I am so happy they delivered!

Karubah said...

Yeah, I am going to match what others have said and say I look forward to trying the topped line from Ben and Jerry’s. I want to try the Strawberry Topped Tart, Whiskey Biz, and Thick Mint flavors the most.

Everything Bagel ice cream? Ooh, this should be interesting! Maybe savory ice cream will catch on.
