Dairy processors are always looking for the next big thing, whether it’s a new packaging idea, inclusions or trendy new flavors. Take the hazelnut, for example. Nutella and Jif have had success with their hazelnut spreads, and now a flavored inclusion is available for ice cream.
At the International Dairy Show in Chicago in November, Wayland, Mich.-based Denali Flavors added a hazelnut flavor to its popular Moose Tracks ice cream formula. Denali also rolled out Salty Caramel Caribou.
