Rhino Foods didn’t become the industry’s supplier of choice by accident. It’s all thanks to our customer-driven innovation that Rhino has scored its reputation. We pride ourselves on finding unique solutions for our customers in the ice cream industry who are looking for the highest quality ingredients, lowest-risk partners, and ridiculously delicious inclusions.
Sometimes, our customers come to us with specific ideas (like that first time Ben & Jerry’s wanted to try cookie dough in ice cream back in 1991) and sometimes, it’s the other way around. New concepts are always in the works at Rhino Foods. Our Research and Development experts, Dale Conoscenti and Rob Douglas, lean on flavor trends, food science, and their own discerning palates.
But how? Let’s take our 2019 flavors, for instance.
- Spiced Rum Cake mixes cake pieces with cinnamon ice cream, caramel, and rum-soaked raisins.
- Peanut Butter Pie, a textured and flavorful ice cream that evokes total satisfaction.
- Mixed with maple ice cream and a caramel swirl, the Brown Butter Blondie is a complex and warm addition.
- Last but certainly not least, the soft and nutty Coconut Cream, which pairs coconut ice cream with caramel and chocolate flakes.
Not bad, right?
With decades of experience between them, Rob and Dale gave us some insight into their process and the inception of these flavors.
