Lotus Bakeries, the maker of Biscoff cookies and cookie butter, will release a new line of “super-premium” ice cream in the US.
The Belgian company has developed the range by pairing dairy cream with crunchy Biscoff cookies and the original cookie butter.
Five flavours will be available in pint formats: original, chocolate brownie, salted caramel, Belgian chocolate chip, and blueberry cheesecake.
An ice cream bar will initially come in one flavour, featuring the original cookie butter ice cream dipped in a layer of cookie butter and then enrobed in a layer of Belgian chocolate.
“Biscoff is exploding in the US and we can’t be more excited to bring the beloved Biscoff taste to ice cream,” said Michelle Singer, Lotus Bakeries US general manager.
Founded in 1932, Lotus Bakeries has production facilities in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, South Africa and Sweden. The firm said that ice cream is “the natural progression” for the Biscoff portfolio as it continues to expand beyond the original cookie.
The new ice cream is scheduled to launch in US stores in pints in July 2019 and bars in October 2019.
