One of America's favorite ice cream brands, Turkey Hill, is delving into the world of frozen novelty treats. Starting March 1, you can find their new lineup of ice cream treats in retailers nationwide, including ice cream cookie sandwiches, fruit and cream bars, and — what we're most excited about — their new layered sundae cups. 

"In addition to expanding its products nationwide to reach homes across the country, Turkey Hill is launching 3 brand-new novelties lines to provide more ways for consumers to enjoy the #1 brand of ice cream in the Northeast," said Kriston Ohm, Marketing Director.

I was lucky enough to preview a handful of their new treats, and let's put it this way: The samples are quickly disappearing from my freezer. Let's start with the varsity players — the sundae cups. Turkey Hill's new layered sundae cups are available in eight different flavor combinations: Caramel Brownie, Cookies & Cream, Cookie Dough Delight, Strawberry Shortcake, Peanut Butter Cup, Ultimate Fudge, Chocolate Cream Pie, and Party Cake. 

Each layered sundae cup is made with real, premium ice cream (not frozen dairy dessert), and add ins such as brownie bits, crumbled cookie toppings, chocolate sauce, etc. It's all packaged in one single-serve, mess-free ice cream cup with a standard retail price of $2.19. 

Of the eight flavors available, I was able to test four: Strawberry Shortcake, Caramel Brownie, Cookies & Cream, and Ultimate Fudge. The latter three were just the type of indulgent, chocolate-y goodness I was expecting, my favorite being the caramel brownie layered sundae cup. Spoon your way all the way through to the bottom and you'll find five separate layers including Turkey Hill Premium Chocolate and Vanilla Ice cream with brownie brittle, caramel sauce, chocolate cookie crumble, and chocolate flake topping. 

The strawberry shortcake flavor was the most unique of the bunch I tested, with Turkey Hill Premium Vanilla Custard and Strawberry Ice Cream combined with graham cracker pieces and strawberry sauce. With summer fast approaching, I think these would be the perfect mess-free addition to any kid's birthday party, or just a portion-controlled treat to indulge in without making a trip to the ice cream shop for a sundae.

Next up, we have the ice cream cookie sandwiches. Anytime a brand releases a line of novelty ice cream treats, these are a given. There's something so comforting about the combination of crumbly cookies and creamy, cold ice vanilla ice cream. These cookie sandwiches do stand out from the pack for one very important reason: Ice cream is sandwiched between two double chocolate chip cookies. This might sound like a subtle change, but it really does elevate the flavor of the whole cookie. Plus, the cookie has a nice chew to it so it doesn't break apart and turn into a melty mess in your hand. Each cookie sandwich is made with Turkey Hill premium ice cream, and is available in four different flavors: Vanilla Bean, Peanut Butter, Choco Mint Chips, and Chocolate. The sandwiches are sold in a pack of four for $4.29.

And finally, the lightest of all of Turkey Hill's treats are their new Fruit and Cream Ice Cream Bars. Available in four flavors — Strawberry, Coconut, Orange, and Strawberry lemonade — each is made with Turkey Hill Premium Ice Cream and real fruit pieces. 

Unlike other ice cream bars that are made with frozen dairy dessert, these were incredibly creamy and melt-in-your-mouth soft. I tried the strawberry and the coconut flavors, and have found myself going back to the freezer again and again for the coconut cream bars. If this winter weather has you craving a piña colada on the beach, the fresh coconut flavor of this fruit and cream bar is the next best thing. Each box contains six individually wrapped bars retailing for $4.29. 

In addition to their new product release, Turkey Hill has also made changes to its facility located in Conestoga, Pennsylvania, which has been powered by 100 percent renewable energy since 2019, drawing clean, sustainable power from nearby hydroelectric dams and two wind turbines.
