Ice Cream-Flavored Protein Crisps

BSN Collaborated with Cold Stone Creamery on Protein Products

— April 22, 2019 — Lifestyle
Bio-Engineered Supplements and Nutrition (BSN) teamed up with Cold Stone Creamery to create new Protein Crisp bar flavors inspired by the super-premium ice cream brand's Signature Creations. These new varieties include Protein Crisp bars in Mint Mint Chocolate Chocolate Chip and Birthday Cake Remix flavors.

These ready-to-eat Protein Crisp Cold Stone Creamery flavors are indulgent, thanks to their ice cream-inspired flavors, but also nourishing, as each bar contains 20 grams of high-quality protein.

Last year, BSN and Cold Stone Creamery collaborated for the first time by introducing ice cream-inspired flavors for BSN's SYNTHA-6 protein powder. According to Kris Gerulski, marketing director for BSN North America, "Some may consider the pairing of a fitness nutrition brand and a super-premium ice cream a surprise. BSN takes pride in this kind of unexpected, innovative approach and earning the spotlight for our extraordinary commitment to taste."
