“We know that introducing new varieties and flavors of ice cream to fans can bring more moments of happiness, joy and togetherness, which is why we have paired our delicious Mars Ice Cream with some of our most iconic brands in the Mars portfolio like Dove, M&M’S and Twix. Our new offerings promise consumers a delicious at-home ice cream experience that can be enjoyed all year long,” Jayesh Shah, Mars Ice Cream Marketing Director, said in a press release.

The new M&M’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches will have M&M’s, cookie pieces, and ice cream in between baked chocolate cookies. They will be sold in packs of four. The Dove Mini Sticks Vanilla Ice Cream with Dark Chocolate and Almonds will come with a coating of the dark chocolate and almonds and will be sold in packs of six.

Finally, the Twix Cookie Dough Ice Cream comes with soft cookie dough bites, pieces of chopped Twix bars, vanilla ice cream, and a caramel swirl all mixed together. The Twix ice cream will be sold in 16-ounce pints.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
