Product innovation of the week: Cannabis ice cream
I learned about this from a newsletter I subscribe to, Dairy Reporter (this is why I subscribe).
The ice creams are vegan, no less.
Two vegan flavors – Cup O’ Coffee Chip and Chocolate Sunny Days – have already debuted, and a dairy line is arriving ‘in two weeks’, DairyReporter understands…“Our R&D team pays close attention to consumer trends and food categories that make sense to consider infusing with cannabis,” a MariMed spokesman said. “Ice cream has seen enormous growth, particularly craft ice cream.”
They are sold only in Massachusetts for now.
“MariMed was looking to partner up with an ice cream company to develop products using their full spectrum cannabis oil and CBD,” Emack & Bolio’s founder Robert Rook told DairyReporter. “We both wanted great tasting product, with clean ingredients infused with the best full-spectrum cannabis oil.
I tried to find ingredient lists for these products, but all I could find was a press release.
I wrote and asked for them.
