Schwan’s Consumer Brands, Inc., is giving consumers something to celebrate on National Pi Day, normally celebrated for the mathematical symbol π (approximately 3.14 or the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter) – but for Edwards® desserts it’s all about “PI.E,” which happens to be the mirror reflection of 3.14. The following new flavors can be found in local freezer aisles:
- Salted Caramel features a vanilla bean crème filling on top of a delicious salted caramel covered graham cracker cookie crumb crust, topped with chocolate-covered salted pretzels bits and finished with chocolate drizzle.
- Banana Crème boasts a smooth banana crème filling on a vanilla cookie crumb crust that’s finished with a light whipped crème topping.
- MOUNDS®* Coconut Crème tempts with a smooth coconut crème filling with pockets of rich dark chocolate and covered in a layer of light whipped crème topping, all atop a dark chocolate cookie crumb crust and finished with a dark-chocolate drizzle.
“Introducing three new pie flavors full of sweet and creamy layers, candy toppings and house-made crusts is an ideal way to indulge everyone’s sweet tooth,” said Susan Allen, Senior Director, Brand Management at Schwan’s Consumer Brands. “As a leader in frozen crème pies, we are constantly listening to our consumers and looking for new flavors. These new pies represent flavor profiles that are on trend and what consumers want in their desserts.”
