KANSAS CITY — From ice cream to cookies, new varieties of sweets are stocking shelves.
Ice cream company Blue Bunny added its take on soft serve to grocery stores with Soft scoopables, which is available in vanilla, chocolate, cookies and cream, strawberry and mint chocolate chip flavors.

New York-based Milk Bar is moving further into retail with a new cookie option and ready-to-bake dough. The cookies, under the brand name Crunchies, are bite-sized and made crispy from puffed rice cereal, according to the company. The Crunchies are available in four flavors: brown butter chocolate chip, cinnamon toast, pretzel-y chocolate chip and vanilla butter crunch. Manufactured by General Mills, the ready-to-bake cookie dough is available for a limited time and is available in two varieties: cornflake chocolate chip marshmallow and fruity cereal.
“I can’t wait to share what we’ve dreamed up with these two treats: an epic snack in your daily routine with our crunchy cookies and an invitation into the kitchen to own the title of baker yourself with our ready-to-bake dough,” said Christina Tosi, chef, founder and chief executive officer of Milk Bar.
