Hostess Launches Twinkies Ice Cream
Posted on February 8, 2017
Hostess Brands has announced the launch of a number of frozen treats. The new items are available in grocery stores nationwide. The products include Twinkies Ice Cream and Ding Dong ice cream sandwiches.
The Twinkies Ice Cream includes bite-sized sponge cake pieces and sweet frosting. This is swirled together in a butter cream ice cream. There are two other ice cream flavors in addition to Twinkies. They are CupCakes and Sno Balls. The other frozen treats include a Twinkie Cone and Sno Balls Bar.
Twinkies first arrived in the frozen section last year with Deep Fried Twinkies. Now we have Twinkies Ice Cream, Twinkie Cone and Deep Fried Twinkies as frozen Twinkies treats.
Ellen Copaken, vice president of marketing at Hostess, says in the announcement, "Everyone's favorite Hostess treats – Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Sno Balls and CupCakes – are now available in a creative new form as creamy and delicious frozen desserts. We continually seek to reinvent our classic treats and are excited to have this new innovation added to the freezer aisle where fans can already find our Deep Fried Twinkies."
The ice cream will be available in pints for $2.99 SRP and 48 ounce cartons for $5.99 SRP. The other frozen snacks range in price from $1.99 to $4.49 per box.
