A little more than five years after Luna & Larry launched their first retail-ready line of Coconut Bliss ice cream, featuring groundbreaking all-organic ingredients such as coconut milk and agave syrup, the company is blazing a new trail with the introduction of four new flavors featuring coconut sugar, a sweetener new to the food scene, and superfoods.
"Introducing new flavors is big news for us because we only do so after a lot of testing in our home kitchen, months of testing with our tasting team, and when we are sure we have a winner," says Larry Kaplowitz, co-founder of Bliss Unlimited, LLC. "But we are doubly excited this time because of our new ingredient, coconut sugar, which, to our knowledge, no other ice cream maker is using."
According to tester reports, coconut sugar has added a richer flavor and distinct caramel tones to the four new flavors, which include Ginger Cookie Caramel, Chocolate Walnut Brownie, Mocha Maca Crunch, and Lunaberry Swirl.
"Coconut Bliss lovers will be delighted with the new flavors—some of which were inspired by customer requests—and the luscious taste that coconut sugar adds to them. It's quite different than agave syrup," explains Kaplowitz.
All the new flavors feature coconut sugar and are free of soy, dairy, gluten, and cane sugar. All ingredients are certified organic, non-GMO, and are fair trade when possible.
