Bloomington, Minn.-based Edward’s desserts, a subsidiary of The Schwan Food Co., introduced three new frozen pie flavors this year that focused on nostalgia and indulgence.
The new flavors, which were released in March, are:
- Salted Caramel — features a vanilla bean crème filling on top of a salted caramel covered graham cracker cookie crumb crust, topped with chocolate-covered salted pretzels bits and finished with chocolate drizzle.
- Banana Crème — features a smooth banana crème filling on a vanilla cookie crumb crust that’s finished with a light whipped crème topping.
- Mounds Coconut Crème — features a coconut crème filling with pockets of dark chocolate and covered in a layer of light whipped crème topping, all atop a dark chocolate cookie crumb crust and finished with a dark-chocolate drizzle.
Experts say nostalgic flavors are back, like coconut and banana and processors like Edward's are revamping those favorites with modern twists. The new Mounds Coconut Crème was a twist on the fan-favorite coconut cream pie, while the Salted Caramel answered the continued popular trend for sweet and salty. The frozen desserts can be found in grocery stores nationwide.
