Food brands love to change things up, and it’s no secret we love a good snack mashup. We especially love it when our favorite treats are reinvented in frozen form. When we want a dessert to fill us up, we reach for a nutty frozen Snickers. When we want to channel that holiday spirit, we stock our freezers with Costco's Häagen-Dazs Peppermint Bark Ice Cream Bars. So naturally, when we heard that Milky Way made an ice cream bar of its own, we immediately added it to our shopping list.

Milky Way’s New Ice Cream Bar



Milky Way recently released its new Ice Cream Bars to help celebrate its 100th anniversary next year. Made with the same original flavors we already love, the new Ice Cream Bar is packed with 100 percent real chocolate ice cream and velvety caramel coated in a chocolate shell.

According to the brand, “MILKY WAY Ice Cream Bars are a delicious treat that takes satisfaction to a new, frozen level…This is the novelty treat you didn’t know that you even needed, now available in a new pack size.”

Milky Way Ice Cream Bars come in a box of six and are now available at major retailers, including Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, and 7-Eleven.

Other Milky Way Bar Flavors

Milky Way bars have been around for a long time. As the longest-standing chocolate bar from the Mars brand, Milky Way first came on the market in 1924 and continues to go strong today. Over the years, the chocolate brand released various flavors to keep customers engaged, such as Milky Way Salted Caramel, Milky Way Fudge Bar, Milky Way Midnight, and Milky Way Cookie Dough.

While Mars has put out many different Milky Way flavors over the years, one thing is for sure: everyone still loves that classic original taste. Milky Way once asked its Instagram followers, “What’s your favorite layer of a Milky Way Bar?” Fans generally expressed that they loved “all of it,” with one stating, “Ahhh I really cannot decide.” Who can decide, really? It’s all so good.”

If you dream about Milky Way's signature flavors of milk chocolate, creamy caramel, and sweet nougat, you may want to try your hand at this Milky Way cupcake icing or this Milky Way martini.

Whether you enjoy a Milky Way bar as-is, in frozen ice cream bar form, or in a copycat homemade recipe, you can’t go wrong.
