Fan favorite blend returns just in time for National Ice Cream Month
ORLANDO, Fla. (June 24, 2021) – Looking to perk up your summer? How does a cup of delectable iced coffee sound? Just in time for National Ice Cream Month, Barnie’s Coffee & Tea Co. is bringing back a fan favorite, Pistachio Ice Cream coffee. The newest limited-time flavor goes on sale to the public on June 29.
First introduced in 2018 and a hit with flavor fanatics, Barnie’s Pistachio Ice Cream is a medium roast blended from 100% Arabica coffee, then packed with the nutty taste of pistachios and punctuated with notes of sweet vanilla cream. Recommended served cold for a chilly blast of refreshment but just as delicious enjoyed hot, a 6-ounce cup has less than five calories, is sugar, fat-, nut- and gluten-free, and available in decaf. When paired with touch of cream and a sweetener of choice, Barnie’s latest flavor delivers the rich, slinky goodness of the favorite frozen treat without the pesky calories and melty mess.
“We selected Pistachio Ice Cream a few years ago when we were looking for a groovy summer flavor,“ explained Barnie’s Director of Coffee Programming Dustin Finch. “We had previous successes with other nutty flavors. Once we tasted the bright and sweet essence of pistachio, we knew we were on to something. We then focused on flavor combinations. Since pistachio is the name of the blend and on the bag, it should be the first taste on the palette, but it’s easy to overpower it. The sweet vanilla cream base flows perfectly with it.”
Added Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Scott Uguccioni, “Pistachio Ice Cream was a hit several years ago and we expect it to be another winner this summer. Our customers have been asking for us to bring it back, and we listened. We have been creating dramatically delicious coffees in collaboration with our loyal fans for more than 40 years. We remain committed to our year-round, limited-time-only and seasonal flavors program.”
