Ranch is an all-time favorite; whether for salad or for dipping pizza, most Americans have a love for Hidden Valley’s ranch dressing. What many people did not see coming was ranch-flavored ice cream!
A Brooklyn-based ice cream parlor “Van Leeuwen” debuted their new Hidden Valley Ranch ice cream. You may be wondering how a savory condiment could become a creamy dessert, but the flavors are described as “savory flavors of ranch, including buttermilk, flavorful herbs, and a touch of sweetness.”
This new flavor will be accessible to the public through Walmart sometime after March 20th. The recommended toppings for this ice cream include salty, crunchies like potato chips or pretzels and even vegetable sprinkles! Creating new flavors such as this one has proven to be productive in getting brand name recognition through YouTube and TikTok.
Hidden Valley has been known to partake in collaborations such as this one, having previously worked with Crocs and other companies. Hidden Valley likes to have fun with its customers. There has recently been an increase in savory ice cream flavors hitting the market. Ranch is joining the race with mac&cheese, lobster, and even pizza-flavored ice creams.
There is a market for those who prefer a savory ice cream flavor to a sweet one. Current reviews on the flavor say it is heavy on garlic, and while it does not taste just like ranch, it is still enjoyable. This flavor will be available in limited edition pints at Walmart, starting March 20th to May 28th. Be sure to stop by and try some ranch-flavored ice cream while you can!
