Yonanas adds a twist to dairy-free ice cream
For those looking to add a twist to dairy-free ice cream, Yonanas may have the answer parents and children are looking for.
The Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based company’s tool allows children to create their own frozen treats by putting such frozen fruit as blueberries, strawberries and bananas down a chute, hitting a button and then watching as it’s transformed into a sorbet.
The easy-to-assemble Yonanas Maker, which is dishwasher safe and designed to sit neatly on any kitchen counter, also won the Good Housekeeping’s Research Institute’s Very Innovative Products award, the company said.
The Yonanas Maker currently retails for as low as $35, and can be found at such retailers as Bed Bath and Beyond, Walmart and Amazon.
Dunkin’ Donuts’ dark coffee espresso comes in a can
Fans of Dunkin’ Donuts’ coffee have a brand new selection of beverages they can pick up and take on-the-go.
The Canton, Mass.-based company unveiled its new collection of dark coffee espresso blends, which come in a convenient can. Titled Shot in the Dark, the collection combines the taste of the brand’s signature coffee and espresso together.
Served in an 8.1 oz. slim can, the beverage comes in three flavors — caramel, mocha and vanilla — and contains a touch of cream, sugar and 80 calories per serving, the company said.
“Our fans have loved our ready-to-drink iced coffees as a great way to power through their day with Dunkin’ anytime and anywhere,” Brian Gilbert, Dunkin’ Donuts’ vice president of retail business development, said. “Now, for the coffee-loving consumers who want something a little bolder than a traditional cup of coffee, but not as strong as a shot of espresso, our Shot in the Dark creates an exciting and energizing new option when on-the-go.”
Manufactured and distributed by Coca-Cola, the Shot in the Dark coffee collection can be found in select retail locations across the nation, and will be expanded to convenience and grocery stores in 2019.
