Bubbies, a brand of mochi ice cream featuring all-natural ingredients, has added Mocha Chip to its range. It is now available at Whole Foods, ShopRite, Dave’s Marketplace, Roche Brothers, Wegmans, Harmons and Wakefern in addition to other retail outlets in the United States.
The new flavor offers a twist on the traditional coffee ice cream scoop as a mindfully indulgent handheld treat. It’s made by wrapping creamy coffee ice cream that’s packed with chocolate chips in delicate chocolate mochi dough.
“Mocha Chip is an extension of our promise to provide a better-for-you ice cream experience that is on-trend and excites customers. It has been introduced as we head into peak ice cream season, so ice cream and coffee lovers alike can enjoy all summer and beyond,” said Katie Cline, vice president of marketing.
The super-premium coffee ice cream is made with a blend that includes Kona coffee, which is farmed and processed in the fertile Hualalai and Mauna Loa areas of Hawaii. This sourcing offers a deeper connection to the heritage of Bubbies, since the brand started off as an ice cream shop on the island of Oahu in 1985.
Serving up just 90 calories per piece, the Mocha Chip offering is gluten-free, non-GMO and contains no rBST dairy ingredients. Distribution is in six-pack packages selling a price points between
$5.99 and $6.99.
