West Michigan-based Denali Flavors, developers of the legendary Moose Tracks ice cream, will unveil two brand new flavors at the International Dairy Show, held at McCormick Place in Chicago on November 3-6.
Hazelnut Moose Tracks is a rich combination of hazelnut-flavored ice cream, hazelnut-filled mini chocolate cups and loads of world renowned Moose Tracks Fudge. Salty Caramel Caribou features salty toffee-flavored ice cream, with salty caramel-filled mini milk chocolate cups and luscious Denali Salty Caramel Fudge.
Both new flavors will be available for sampling by Dairy Show attendees at booth number 1931.
“Hazelnut Moose Tracks and Salty Caramel Caribou have come to life as a result of some distinct trends we’re seeing not so much in ice cream, but in the dessert category itself,” said Neal Glaeser, President of Denali Flavors. “Moose Tracks Fudge has always been a balance of sweet and salty, and now we’re seeing that trend emerge more widely in cupcakes and snacks. We also see hazelnut growing in popularity, perhaps as a result of the growing specialty coffee beverage trend.”
“We’ll have a prime audience of ice cream industry folks gathered at the International Dairy Show next month so it’s the perfect opportunity to gather some valuable feedback on these new flavors we’re excited to introduce,” added Glaeser,
The Original Moose Tracks ice cream flavor was introduced in the mid-80′s by husband and wife entrepreneurs Wally and June Blume. Since that time it has gone on to become one of the top-selling flavors of premium ice cream in the country. Denali Flavors subsequently developed more than 30 flavors including Bear Claw®, Bear Foot®, Mother Lode®, and Caramel Caribou Moose Tracks.
