J&J Snack Foods, Pennsauken, N.J., announced the newest addition to the Luigi’s Real Italian Ice frozen family, serving up the rich and creamy goodness fans have been craving with Luigi’s gelato. Available in 4-ounce portion-controlled cups, the gelato is available in three indulgent flavors: Mint Chocolate, Sweet Cream Churro and Italian Cannoli — each featuring a swirl or chip inclusion for an elevated tasting experience.
“We’re thrilled to introduce Luigi’s gelato, delivering on our brand promise to continually innovate and serve up fun through delicious flavors and unique products,” says Lynwood Mallard, chief marketing officer for J&J Snack Foods. “Luigi’s gelato fulfills a market need for portion-sized novelties in trendy international flavors. We have no doubt that Luigi’s gelato will become a staple in freezers across the U.S.”
The company notes that since Luigi’s Real Italian Ice launched in 1978, the timeless Italian frozen treat has been a family favorite in freezers. Free from peanuts, tree nuts and gluten, Luigi’s gelato contains less sugar and calories than gelato from leading competitors, making it the ultimate guilt-free snack. The new gelatos are available at retailers throughout the Northeast for a suggested retail price of $3.50 for a four-count box of 4-ounce cups.
The company says it is encouraging fans to dig in, cool off from the summer heat and use the hashtag #BeMoreSpoontaneous.
