With over 30 years of experience in producing gelato, Ciao Bella has created a masterpiece for the freezer aisle,” said Carlos Canals, chief executive officer of Florham Park, New Jersey-headquartered Ciao Bella.
“The premium segment in the specialty frozen dessert category has experienced tremendous growth over the past several years,” he added. “Ciao Bella is continually evaluating taste trends and finding innovative ways to bring exciting new flavors that will appeal to new and loyal consumers alike. We are thrilled to bring these two decadent brands together.”
The Baileys Sea Salt Caramel gelato will be available nationwide in June at a suggested retail price of $4.99 for a 16 oz. pint. Ciao Bella and Baileys aim to continue collaboration and plan to launch new flavors in the future.
