Summer time is upon us and with it comes this summer’s crop of seasonal limited-time offers from quick serve establishments. What new offerings are you tempting your customers with? Are you pushing the envelope with new innovation or are you bringing back memories with tried-and-true favorites?
Cold Stone Creamery pushed the innovation envelope last summer with flavors like Strawberry Basil. This seemed to be a little outside of many customers’ comfort zone and struggled in many of the smaller markets. Their Mojito Sorbet was a bit of a disappointment as it contained no alcohol. So this summer they are going back to the basics with Cherry Vanilla and Chocolate Malt flavors along with related creations. The Cherry Vanilla Cherry Pie is a blend of cherry pie filling, graham crackers, caramel and cherry vanilla ice cream, and the Malt My Heart with Chocolate feature bananas, fudge, and whipped topping in addition to chocolate malt ice cream.
On the other hand, Marble Slab is offering limited edition Hola Margarita Sorbet and Caramelized Pineapple Ice Cream. Jenn Johnston, chief marketing and operations officer said, “We are known for our playful and innovative products and think our fans will enjoy sampling the Hola Margarita Sorbet and our new Caramelized Pineapple Ice Cream this weekend.”
Self-serve frozen yogurt giant Yogurtland has added two new limited edition flavors to their summer lineup, Blue Lychee Bliss Tart and Almond Midnight Mocha. Blue Lychee Bliss Tart combines the sweet blueberry with the exotic lychee fruit while Almond Midnight Mocha starts appeals to the chocolate lovers with two types of dark chocolate, real almonds, and a hint of coffee.
