Turtle Mountain Introduces Coconut Milk Ice Cream Sandwiches

"Eugene , OR - Turtle Mountain , makers of America 's most popular dairy-free ice creams and frozen novelties, has introduced the world's first ice cream sandwiches made with non-dairy coconut milk ice cream. So Delicious Mini Sandwiches are a delicious combination of chocolate wafers and creamy coconut milk ice cream that weigh in at only 100 calories per serving.

At 2.3 ounces, each sandwich is sized perfectly for a sensible non-dairy indulgence and will be available in two flavors: Coconut and Banana Split. Banana Split is a unique combination of chocolate, strawberry and banana ice cream. In addition to only having 100 calories, the ice cream in both flavors is sweetened with organic agave nectar, a low-glycemic sweetener that does not alter blood sugar as dramatically as conventional sugar.

These new products build on the success of Purely Decadent Coconut Milk Ice Cream released by Turtle Mountain earlier this year. "The reaction to our coconut milk ice cream was so strong that we decided to see how coconut milk ice cream would taste in a sandwich. They taste fantastic and it's hard to believe they only have 100 calories," said Tim Bennett, Director of Marketing for Turtle Mountain.

So Delicious Coconut Milk Mini Sandwiches will be available in Whole Foods and select other retailers nationally in late October. Suggested retail price is $4.99 for a box of eight 2.3-ounce sandwiches."
