Edy’s Slow Churned Warms Up the Holidays with New Hot Cocoa Light Ice Cream

Edy's is ringing in the holiday season with the debut of Slow Churned® Hot Cocoa light ice cream, a festive new twist on a traditional favorite. With sweet and fluffy marshmallows swirled into a creamy chocolate light ice cream, Hot Cocoa dishes up the same rich flavor of regular ice cream with half the fat and one-third fewer calories, making it the ultimate guilt-free holiday treat!

Hot Cocoa joins Edy's Slow Churned popular limited edition holiday line-up: Eggnog, an indulgent eggnog light ice cream with a lingering essence of nutmeg, Peppermint, creamy light peppermint ice cream mixed with pieces of peppermint candy, and Pumpkin Pie, velvety smooth pumpkin light ice cream blended with spicy nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger.
