Wholly Veggie just launched its new Mozzarella Style Sticks with Truffle, joining the brand’s line of dairy-free cheese sticks.

The new dairy-free appetizer is the first of its kind, made with gluten-free upcycled cauliflower, vegan mozzarella, and natural truffle flavor. The cheese sticks bake in minutes, and each box comes with marinara dipping sauce. Like the brand’s other products, they are vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, and non-GMO. 

Wholly Veggie’s latest addition to the frozen aisle will be available at Target stores starting in May, as well as the brand’s website.

SNICKERS Ice Cream, a Mars brand and NFL sponsor, is partnering with NFL draft prospect Bryce Young to launch a limited-edition SNICKERS Bryce Cream Bar. 

Inside the Bryce Young-inspired wrapper, the bar is the same as the original SNICKERS Ice Cream bar, featuring creamy peanut butter ice cream, smooth caramel and crunchy peanuts, and a chocolate shell.

From now until May 1, fans can enter for a chance to win six limited-edition SNICKERS Bryce Cream Bars. The Bryce Cream Bar will also be available on a first come, first served basis at select locations within the Kansas City, MO and Tuscaloosa, AL areas.

After a brief hiatus, American Outdoor Products announced the return of Astronaut Ice Cream freeze-dried fruits (strawberries, cinnamon apples, peaches, and bananas) and ice cream sandwiches (in Vanilla and Neapolitan flavors).

Astronaut Ice Cream uses lyophilization, or freeze-drying, to remove 98% of the original water content and create a crunchy, creamy treat that’s ready to eat and doesn’t need to be refrigerated. 

The products are now available for purchase through the Astronaut Ice Cream’s new website, as well as at select museums, theme parks, outdoor retail stores, and other locations. Ice cream sandwiches are available for $4.99 for a single sandwich and $59.99 for a 12-pack. A 6-Pack of freeze-dried fruits sells for $23.99. Bulk case options for both products are also available.

All three flavors contain 6 grams of protein per bar and no high fructose corn syrup. 

The new bars are now available at Costco stores in the Northwest for the suggested price of $5.49 per 6-count and $11.49 per 22-count.
