NEW YORK, June 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hawaiian-grown Bubbies Ice Cream is revered by legions of fans throughout the world. Bubbies' fan base is largely fueled by its Mochi Ice Cream carried on menus at premier restaurants and at select specialty and independent stores nationally and internationally. Now, with exposure from a full TODAY Show feature and long lines at its Summer Fancy Food Show booth, Bubbies has hit the big time.
"Bubbies has been surprising and delighting customers for more than three decades from the Hawaiian Islands, and with expanded distribution channels and national exposure like this, we've literally hit the big time," said Bubbies Ice Cream & Desserts CEO Rick Schaffer.
Bubbies' marketing team was quick to leap on an opportunity to share its Mochi Ice Cream with the TODAY Show crew at the Summer Fancy Food Show in New York, and producers promptly showcased Bubbies as the anchors sampled treats in a recent segment on "wacky ice cream flavors."
Bubbies is currently available in the United States at select Whole Foods and at high-end restaurants and hotels, as well as online through its website (www.bubbiesicecream.com). With a domestic state-of-the-art manufacturing facility opening later this year, Bubbies will expand its distribution beyond these channels and hopes to gain more fans.
Mochi Ice Cream – perfectly proportioned ice cream wrapped in soft, sweetened rice dough – has become a popular treat in recent years, with fans loving the portability of the bite-size treats. According to a commissioned Mochi Ice Cream Landscape and Packaging Report, Bubbies has the highest satisfaction rate among all Mochi brands. Bubbies is non-GMO, kosher and non-rBST and certified gluten-free by the Celiac Support Organization. Its proprietary, cream-based recipe features high butterfat content in 29 traditional and unique flavors made by hand-selected ingredients such as fresh strawberries, rich chocolate chunks and pure ceremonial green tea powder.
