Ready for it? Milk Bar just announced a new line of ice cream pints and they’re headed to a grocery store near you!
Four flavors from the iconic bakery drop soon: Birthday Cake, Cereal Milk, Cornflake Chocolate Chip Marshmallow and Milk Bar Pie. It’s the first time that Milk Bar will offer ice cream beyond their signature bakeries.
The birthday cake ice cream is flavored with the sweet treat, plus birthday crumbs and frosting(!). The Cereal Milk is a tribute to the original flavor craze with a cornflake crunch. Cornflake chocolate chip marshmallow riffs on the best-selling cookie with cornflake crunch, marshmallow swirls and chocolate chunks. And Milk Bar Pie brings the bakery’s signature pie into ice cream form: vanilla ice cream swirled with gooey butter cake.
“I have dreamed about bringing Milk Bar to the freezer section (the holy grail of the supermarket in my opinion) for nearly a decade. I knew coming in now, we’d need to do more than bend pieces of our finished treats into an ice cream pint. So we toiled and tinkered, taking our favorite flavor profiles and imagining them through ice cream bases, swirls, gobs, fudges, frostings, crumbs and crunches to create our proudest on-shelf creation yet,” said Christina Tosi, Chef and Founder of Milk Bar.
You’ll be able to grab a pint or four starting Jun. 1 at Whole Foods Markets, then at additional retailers and online later in the summer. Last year the brand entered the grocery space with soft-baked cookies, followed by truffle crumb cakes. Each pint will be $5.99 and maybe/probably the best part of your entire week.
