Exciting New Flavors!

New Ice Cream Flavors

From the brands you’ve known and loved for years to a handful of new kids on the block, here are some of the best new ice cream flavors to look forward to this summer.


Acme Valley

As the self-described “only full-strength ice cream” out there, Acme Valley crafts small-batch ice cream with a fabulously thick, creamy texture that has quality in every bite. Some of our favorite Acme Valley flavors for summer include Mixed Berry, Espresso, and Banana Walnut.


Noosa Gelato

Noosa is famous for its fabulous yogurt, and now they’re adding frozen yogurt gelato to their lineup! Made with whole milk for an extra-rich flavor and texture, Noosa frozen yogurt gelato is one of the hottest new ice creams to hit store shelves. Flavors include Honey Vanilla Bean, Strawberries & Cream, Chocolate Fudge, and Sea Salt Caramel - and each one is just as tasty as the last.


Milk Bar

The iconic New York sweets shop has arrived in the Gelson’s freezer aisle with their newest ice cream pints! You’ll definitely recognize some of these unique ice cream flavors as reinventions of Milk Bar classics, including Milk Bar Pie, Cornflake Chocolate Chip Marshmallow, Birthday Bake, and Cereal Milk. 


New Non-Dairy Ice Cream Flavors

Are you dairy-free? No worries, because there are still fabulous flavors for you to look forward to this summer - and several top-selling non-dairy ice creams that you’ll want to check out. 


Van Leeuwen

Vegan Van Leeuwen ice cream and ice cream bars show how delicious dairy-free can be. Their pints include flavors like Cookies & Cream Caramel Swirl, Churros & Fudge, Cookie Crumble Strawberry Jam, and Sicilian Pistachio, just to name a few.

Dream Bites

Dream Bites are the poppable dairy-free ice cream bites you’ll always want in your freezer, especially when you see flavors like Vanilla Sky and Berry Dreams.


GoodPop Sandwich Squares

Imagine fabulous dairy-free ice cream dipped in a delicious chocolate shell - that is what you can look forward to with the Fudge n’ Vanilla Squares from GoodPop.

Dairy-free ice cream lovers are likely familiar with Oatly pints, but what about their new ice cream bars? With Strawberry Swirl and Salted Caramel as delicious options, these dipped ice cream bars are a must-try.


Coolhaus Dairy-Free Cones

In addition to their dairy-free pints, Coolhaus introduced dairy-free ice cream cones in flavors like Farmer’s Market Strawberry, Cookie Dough Lyfe, and Cookies and Cream.
