AUSTIN, TEXAS – GoodPop announced the arrival of its first stick-free frozen desserts, Chocolate Vanilla Sandwiches.
The reimagined ice cream sandwiches are made from oatmilk, and are 100% plant-based and gluten-free. Each sandwich has 110 calories and 8 grams of sugar. The new desserts are kosher and made with fair trade, non-GMO ingredients.
"With plant-based novelties being the fastest growing segment in the ice cream category and consumer feedback showing demand for better-for-you frozen desserts, the time was right to take our philosophy and elevated sourcing standards to expand beyond the pop and create our version of an ice cream sandwich as we continue to redefine the frozen novelties category," said Rahul Shah, president and chief operating officer of GoodPop.
Based in Austin, Texas, the company’s products all are USDA certified organic or non-GMO project verified, as well as dairy- and gluten-free, and made with no HFCs, GMOs, refined sugars or sugar alcohol sweeteners.
"We love reinventing classic nostalgic favorites with better-for-you ingredients, which means they have a much shorter, better-for-you ingredient list and are allergen-friendly, but without sacrificing taste," said Daniel Goetz, chief executive officer and founder, GoodPop. "We decided to enter new territory because we saw an opportunity in the market to recreate the cult classic ice cream sandwiches like the ones we grew up with in the 80s and 90s, but with cleaner ingredients that are more delicious and better for people and the planet. We're proud of the result with our Chocolate Vanilla Sandwiches as we continue our mission of using frozen treats as a vehicle to do social and environmental good through our Pledge Good Foundation."
The Chocolate Vanilla Sandwiches come packaged four per box at a suggested retail price of $4.99 - $5.99. They are available at Whole Foods Market, Sprouts, HEB, Gelson's and Raley's locations, as well as on the GoodPop website.
