Frozen Cold Weather Desserts

Auntie Anne's Salted Caramel Chocolate Frost is Winter-Ready

— September 28, 2022 — Lifestyle
Enjoying iced or frozen desserts in the summertime only has become somewhat outdated for many consumers, so brands are continuing to take notice with options like the Auntie Anne's Salted Caramel Chocolate Frost.

The blended beverage features Hershey's frozen chocolate mixed with a sweet, salty caramel syrup that's topped with a serving of real whipped cream. The drink is finished with a buttery sea salted caramel sauce drizzled overtop the whipped cream to offer a final touch of sweetness.

The Auntie Anne's Salted Caramel Chocolate Frost conveys a number of deep, rich flavor profiles that aim to draw in consumers seeking out a more substantial dessert for the cold weather months. The frozen-style of the drink borrows from warm weather desserts to give consumers a new yet familiar experience.
