Swedish baker Almondy has once again teamed up with Cadbury to launch a hazelnut version of its frozen dessert.
The brand new Cadbury Chocolate and Hazelnut Cake is designed to be a sheer indulgence product, combining a layer of chocolate cream sandwiched between Almondy’s almond base, smothered in Cadbury Dairy Milk and topped with chunky pieces of hazelnut.
Following the launch of Cadbury Chocolate Mousse and Almond Cake last year, which gained market share in the frozen desserts category, Cadbury was once again the choice for Almondy when looking to launch its latest dessert.
As well as meeting the demand for indulgence and convenience, the new Cadbury Chocolate and Hazelnut Cake is baked in a gluten-free site, enabling retailers to capitalise on the ever-increasing demand for coeliac-friendly options.
What’s more, with nuts – in particular hazelnuts – undergoing a resurgence at the moment, Almondy’s latest dessert offering hope to be on trend with consumers looking for added crunch, texture and flavour.
Andrew Ely, managing director, Almondy, said:
“This is a very exciting launch for us as it builds on our successful partnership with Cadbury to combine the best-selling chocolate brand with the well established freezer appeal of Almondy.
“We know hazelnuts complement confectionery perfectly – we’ve seen them in chocolate bars, sandwich spreads and ice creams for many years – but this is the first time we have incorporated them into an Almondy dessert, giving customers a new taste sensation and providing retailers with a product that will appeal not just to Coeliacs but to chocolate lovers and nut lovers also.”
Cadbury Chocolate and Hazelnut Cake will be available exclusively through Tesco.
