THE IDAHO POTATO COMMISSION HAS REVEALED A NEW CREATION - MALTED MILKSHAKE AND FRENCH FRIES ICE CREAM. OUR TEAM HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO TRY IT OUT.
You've probably tasted various combinations of french fries - with ketchup, fry sauce, cheese, or just plain. But have you ever considered mixing them with ice cream? The Idaho Potato Commission had this idea and collaborated with Van Leeuwen, a New York-based company famous for its homemade dairy desserts, to create a limited-edition malted milkshake flavored ice cream with french fry chunks.
According to a press release from the Idaho Potato Commission, a recent nationwide survey found that Idaho french fries and milkshakes are one of the most irresistible flavor combinations, surpassing other popular combinations such as biscuits and gravy and chicken and waffles.
Jamey Higham, President, and CEO of the Idaho Potato Commission commented that the survey results confirmed Idaho potatoes' versatility in any form, offering endless pairing options. He added that Idaho potatoes have earned their place at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and now dessert.
The ice cream includes french fry pieces, created by Van Leeuwen's in-house pastry team, using Idaho potato flakes. The ice cream is made with high-quality ingredients, and according to the news release, the toasty caramel-flavored ice cream will take you back to old-school diner days after one bite.
The ice cream is available now at Van Leeuwen scoop shops in New York and Los Angeles, and pints can be purchased for $12 each on the company's website.
