Perry’s Ice Cream Company, Inc. launched its first oat-based, dairy-free frozen dessert. Perry’s Oats Cream™ pints are now available in retail and online.
Perry’s Oats Cream™ line features seven decadent flavors: Apple Strudel, Blueberry Pancake, Coconut Caramel, Oat Latte, Peanut Butter Coffee Cake, Peanut Butter & Cookies and Snickerdoodle. The line up is vegan, non-dairy, lactose free, a good source of fiber and made with whole grains.
Dairy-free frozen dessert is predicted to be a $1 billon dollar category by 2024 and according to Business Insider, oat milk is the hot new product in the dairy-free aisle and is positioned to take over nut milks as the leading alternative.
“As a market leader with extensive dairy expertise, we recognized a growing need to bring to market a great tasting plant-based frozen dessert,” said Robert Denning, president and CEO. “Consumers look to their trusted ice cream brands to create quality dairy-free options. We certainly believe our team of talented research and development experts hit it out of the park with a full line of these amazing tasting oat-based, dairy-free products.”
The pint packaging features a natural oat tone inscribed with a brand message stating, “ice cream hasn’t been for everyone… until now. Meet Perry’s Oats Cream™”
Insights from the Perry’s product development team reveal that oat texture is more like ice cream with a milder flavor, allowing for freedom and variety in flavor creation.
With a view towards national distribution, Wegmans Food Markets and Tops Markets are the first wave of retailers to have authorized Perry’s line of Oats Cream™ for 2019. Perry’s Oats Cream™ pints can be found in Wegmans Food Markets, Tops Markets, and Lexington Co-Op Markets.
Suggested retail price for Perry’s Oats Cream™ is $6.99 per pint.
