KANSAS CITY — Recent launches in the dairy and dairy alternatives category feature indulgent and nostalgic flavor profiles.
Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams is introducing a limited-edition Maple Soaked Pancakes ice cream, which has a swirl of salted butter and Vermont maple syrup ice creams with pancake bites. Other new ice cream products are inspired by childhood treats such as Little Debbie snack cakes and Oreo cookies.
New non-dairy creamers offered by Califia Farms include cookie butter almond milk creamer and cinnamon roll oat creamer.
“Califia provides plant-curious consumers with a broad array of delicious and versatile plant-based beverages,” said Suzanne Ginestro, chief marketing officer at Califia Farms. “As we work to create a future where plants replace dairy without compromise, these newest products offer even more opportunities for consumers to experiment with plant-based options, delivering on the taste, textures, and nutritional expectations consumers have for occasions typically involving dairy.”
Danone North America has added new yogurt and non-dairy yogurt offerings with fruit flavors. Joining the Dannon Light + Fit Greek nonfat yogurt collection are lemon cream and orange cream. The products contain fewer calories than average flavored Greek yogurt, according to the company.
So Delicious Dairy Free, a business owned by Danone North America, is debuting a new line of yogurt alternatives made with coconut milk and botanical extracts. Varieties include strawberry with elderberry extract, mango with ginger and turmeric extracts, and mixed berry with chamomile extract.
“Here at So Delicious, we’re focused on dairy-freeing minds with great taste — and our new yogurt alternatives with vibrant botanical extracts are making it easier than ever to indulge in mindful microbreaks throughout the day,” said Lia Stierwalt, senior director of marketing.
