Indulge Your Sweet Tooth with Frozen Fruit Co.’s Weekend Special: Chocolate “Snickers” Style Caramel
Welcome to Frozen Fruit Co, where we make plant-based ice cream from simple ingredients you’ve heard of before. Unlike other ice cream stores, one of the things we do at Frozen Fruit Co is a “daily special” flavor. For example, Tuesdays are one of my favorite days because it is “Chocolate Peanut Butter Tuesday”. And, yes – Tuesday is the only day you can get it.
Weekends, though, are even more special. That is because each weekend we ramp up our “ice cream machine to 11” and get our thinking hats on to make something super special for the weekend.
What’s so special about this weekend (9th and 10th December)? – Snickers Caramel
Our Chocolate “Snickers” Style Caramel” is one of our most popular weekend special flavors. Brace yourself for something special as we combine the rich, velvety goodness of chocolate ice cream with the irresistible allure of peanut butter salted caramel. All combined with the crunch of dry roasted peanuts.
At Frozen Fruit Co. – ingredients matter to us. When we make our plant-based ice creams they have a few requirements:
(1) they have to be made from simple ingredients you’ve heard of before;
(2) they have to be made from as short an ingredient list as possible (the fewer ingredients the better); and
(3) they can only be sweetened with fruit or plant-based sugars – our preference is to mostly use organic date (and where organic date doesn’t work we will use organic agave – this mostly relates to fruit flavors).
Our Chocolate Ice Cream Base:
At the heart of our weekend special is our luscious chocolate ice cream. Crafted with precision and love, our chocolate ice cream has been on our menu since the first day we opened back in July 2016. It has been a stable of our menu and one of our most popular flavors.
Fun Fact – we never planned on making a chocolate flavor. When we first opened our plan was just to make “fruity-flavors”. What changed? Victoria came up with a killer chocolate recipe. It was so good we just had to put it on the menu. The rest is history.
Made from a luxurious blend of coconut cream, premium cocoa, and organic dates. Our Chocolate ice cream is velvety, dairy-free, and completely plant-based, and (we think) it rivals traditional dairy-based options.
Our commitment to quality ingredients ensures that every spoonful is an experience in itself, with a smooth and creamy texture that leaves you craving for more.
The Peanut Butter Salted Caramel Swirl:
How can you take Chocolate ice cream to the next level? Add in caramel of course!
Snickers was one of my favorite chocolate bars growing up. The combination of chocolate, caramel, and peanuts. It just works.
The only issue is how could we make caramel without using any sugar. Traditionally caramel is cooked and melted sugar. However, we don’t use sugar in any of our ice cream and we don’t have any cooking facilities at the store.
How about a Peanut Butter Caramel?
How about a Peanut Butter Caramel? Okay, whilst not a traditional “true” caramel (because it isn’t made from sugar) – it is our take on one. And “wow” is it scrumptious. Our peanut butter salted caramel swirl elevates our Chocolate “Snickers” Style Caramel to a whole new level.
Made with organic unsweetened peanut butter, a touch of organic maple syrup, and dry roasted peanuts, this swirl is a celebration of nutty goodness and sweet decadence. The creamy, savory notes of peanut butter harmonize with the luscious sweetness of caramel, creating a symphony of flavors that dance on your palate.
A Symphony of Textures
What sets our Chocolate “Snickers” Style Caramel apart is the symphony of textures it offers. As you take your first bite, you’ll experience the velvety richness of the chocolate ice cream, followed by the satisfying crunch of dry roasted peanuts in the caramel swirl. The interplay of smooth and crunchy textures creates a sensory experience that keeps you coming back for more. It’s not just ice cream; it’s a celebration of textures that add an extra layer of enjoyment to every bite.
The Process Behind the Perfection
Our commitment to quality doesn’t stop at the ingredients – it extends to the meticulous process of creating this weekend special. The chocolate ice cream base is churned to perfection, ensuring a consistency that mirrors the richness of traditional ice cream. As for the peanut butter salted caramel swirl, it’s prepared in small batches, allowing us to achieve the perfect balance of sweetness and saltiness. The result is one of our top three most popular weekend specials of all time.
Making Someone’s Day Better
At Frozen Fruit Co our main philosophy is to “make someone’s day better”. How do we do this? It starts with how we make our ice cream (made from plant-based ingredients you’ve heard of and sweetened with only natural sugars like organic date or agave).
Our Chocolate “Snickers” Style Caramel is a testament to this commitment. Free from dairy, refined sugars, and artificial additives or preservatives. This weekend special allows you to treat yourself without compromising on your values or well-being. It’s a treat you can feel better about eating without compromising on what you love about “ice cream”.
But it doesn’t stop there.
From the way you feel when you enter the store (we use bright colors in the store), how we interact with you, to how our ice cream makes you feel hours later. Ice cream is a treat whether it is plant-based or not. Getting a scoop should bring a smile to your face and make your day better (even if only for a few moments).
Indulging in our Chocolate “Snickers” Style Caramel is an experience, and we encourage you to savor it to the fullest. Whether you choose to enjoy it in a cone or a cup, the possibilities for pairing are endless.
For a truly decadent treat, consider adding some extra organic unsweetened peanut butter to your scoop (that would be the option for a “peanut butter-holic” like me) or topping it with a sprinkle of nuts or almonds for some extra crunch.
If you are looking for another flavor to pair it with our recommendation would have to be Vanilla. You can’t go wrong with a chocolate/vanilla combo. It is a classic.
Some Final Thoughts
Chocolate “Snickers” Caramel will be available this weekend (09 and 10 December 2023) from our Montana Ave Store.
Remember the weekend special changes each weekend. However, if you missed it don’t worry this flavor is so popular we try and make it available at least once every 4 weeks or so.
In the interim here are some upcoming Weekend specials coming in December:
- Peppermint Fudge
- Eggnog Choc Fudge
- Chocolate Brownie
- Chocolate Vanilla Fudge Swirl
BIG LOVE and remember you are amazing.
