Mövenpick Macadamia Dulce de Leche
Swiss ice cream brand Mövenpick has launched a new gourmet flavour inspired by the cuisine of Oceania (Polynesia). Macadamia Dulce de Leche is a vanilla-based product, featuring caramel sauce and caramelised macadamia nuts.
The flavour joins the company’s range of luxury ice creams and is designed to be eaten on its own or as an accompaniment to desserts.
“In what we believe to be a first for the UK market, we have combined creamy dulce de leche with sweet and crunchy macadamia, creating a delicious contrast of textures and flavours,” said Julia Jones, head of customer marketing, Mövenpick Ice Cream.
“The combination of macadamia and caramel are inspired by the cuisine of Oceania, where these ingredients are very popular. Their sweetness is delightfully offset by the vanilla base – an ingredient currently in demand among chefs – which we make from Madagascan vanilla pods.
“Together, these ingredients lend an exotic twist to this indulgent product, helping chefs tap into the current consumer trend for ethnic food across their menus.”
The new flavour is free from artificial additives, flavourings and colours and is suitable for vegetarians. The product is available in 2.4 litre tubs.
