MINNEAPOLIS — Four flavors of new Caribou Coffee Ice Cream — the first-ever collaboration between St. Paul, Minn.-based dairy Kemps and Minneapolis-based Caribou Coffee Co. — are being launched in supermarkets across Minnesota, Wisconsin, South and North Dakota, Nebraska and Iowa.
Inspired by some of the most popular coffee drinks at Caribou Coffee’s stores, the four Caribou Coffee Ice Cream flavors include Caribou Blend, Java Chunk, Turtle Mocha and Caramel High Rise.
The 56-oz containers of Caribou Coffee Ice Cream retail for a suggested $4.99 to $5.99.
To introduce Caribou Coffee customers to the new ice cream flavors, on April 4 more than 200 selected Caribou Coffee locations in Minnesota and Wisconsin will giveaway 200 spoons each that are redeemable at area supermarkets for a container of Caribou Coffee Ice Cream.
The ice cream flavors are being unveiled at a ceremony on Feb. 22 at the Caribou Coffee location at 11th and Nicollet Avenue in downtown Minneapolis — with free samples being dished out to the public by Michael Coles, chief executive officer and president of Caribou Coffee and R.T. Rybak, mayor of Minneapolis.
