Top 100 Food Ideas in July

From Cold Brew Ice Creams to Frozen Custard Desserts

— July 27, 2019 — Lifestyle
From cold brew-flavored ice creams to frozen custard desserts, the July 2019 food trends reveal a great deal of innovation in the frozen desserts space.

While the idea of brands rolling out frozen desserts for summer is hardly revolutionary, the July 2019 food trends reveal some interesting new innovations when it comes to ice creams, popsicles, and other icy treats. For instance, Talenti recently rolled out a lineup of ice cream pints that essentially take all the elements of a sundae and layer it into jars for a ready-to-eat treat.

Another frozen dessert innovation is the debut of more better-for-you ice cream options. For instance, Halo Top continues to delight consumers with a new Key Lime Pie version of its protein-rich ice cream. And smaller brands such as Craig's have begun selling 100 percent vegan ice creams made with organic fixings.
