Hudsonville will release seven brand-new ice cream flavors based on Little Debbie’s popular snacks: Oatmeal Creme Pies, Cosmic Brownies, Zebra Cakes, Honey Buns, Strawberry Shortcake Rolls, Swiss Rolls and Nutty Bars. Hudsonville’s Little Debbie ice cream will be available at Walmart stores nationwide on Feb. 1.
The ice cream flavors vary from vanilla to brownie batter, white cake, honey bun, chocolate cake and peanut butter, with all flavors including pieces of the snack they’re inspired by, like soft oatmeal cookies, brownies, cake, glazed honey bun pieces and chocolatey waffle cones with fudge.
All seven flavors will be available year-round for around $2.50 per pint.
Little Debbie and Hudsonville’s first collaboration was on Christmas Tree ice cream, which, unlike the new flavors, was only around for a limited time for the holidays. It featured a creamy white cake base, pound cake pieces and was swirled with green sprinkles and red frosting, just like the cakes.
While new for Little Debbie, rival snack brand Hostess has also transformed some of their treats into ice cream. A few years ago, they launched Twinkies and SnoBalls ice cream, but both were only around for a limited time.
Little Debbie has also teamed up with Kellogg’s to create cereals flavored like their treats like Oatmeal Creme Pies and Cosmic Brownies, which features crispy, indulgent brownie squares with cosmic rainbow pieces.
Previously, Post and Hostess teamed up for Honey Bun cereal, Donettes cereal and Twinkies cereal, and you can also buy Dunkaroos cereal from General Mills or Funfetti cereal for when you want some birthday cake for breakfast.
Oreo’s new treats differ from other cookies and cream ice creams, as they feature a creme-flavored base instead of vanilla. The treats, which include bars, cones, sandwiches and tubs, all have pieces of Oreo cookies. An Oreo representative tells Simplemost the frozen treats will hit store shelves in March.
