Hidden Valley has announced that they have paired up with the Brooklyn-based ice cream parlor Van Leeuwen and will be titled Hidden Valley Ranch ice cream. The novelty ice cream will be sold at select Walmart stores throughout the country for two months, from March 20 to May 28.
According to their press release, the limited-edition pints promise to deliver the "savory flavors of ranch, including buttermilk, flavorful herbs and a touch of sweetness," according to a release.
"We're so excited to debut this new series of flavors and unveil what is possibly our most surprising ice cream yet," said Ben Van Leeuwen, co-founder and CEO of Van Leeuwen Ice Cream. "We have done some creative collaborations and can't wait for Walmart shoppers to try this new and exciting flavor along with our other Spring specials."
Staffers at people Magazine tasted the ice cream and described it as such: “The first savory bite was followed by a subtle sweet note and the creamy texture is quite nice. While you won't catch us eating an entire bowl of ranch ice cream, it was made ten times more enjoyable when dipping with pretzels. Ranch lovers won't be disappointed.”
