According to a press release, Lotus Bakeries will be rolling out five different ice cream flavors, each containing the Biscoff cookies and cookie butter you already know and love. Expect to see Original, Chocolate Brownie, Salted Caramel, Belgian Chocolate Chip and Blueberry Cheesecake versions of the treat coming to U.S. freezer aisles in July.
These flavors will be sold as ice cream pints, but starting October 2019, you’ll be able to pick up ice cream bar versions for your kitchen, too.
The ice cream bar — which the company is causally calling “heaven on a stick” — will come in an original cookie butter flavor and feature original cookie butter ice cream coated in a layer of cookie butter and Belgian chocolate. Heaven on a stick, indeed!
You’ll first be able to find these ice cream pints and bars at participating Safeway and Albertsons chains in Northern California, Oregon, Idaho and Arizona, with many more locations to come.
Lotus Bakeries decided to bring yet another way to enjoy Biscoff cookies to the U.S. after seeing how well their cookies and cookie butter products were performing.
“Biscoff is exploding in the U.S. and we can’t be more excited to bring the beloved Biscoff taste to ice cream,” Michelle Singer, Lotus Bakeries U.S. General Manager, said in the press release.
And based on the reaction to the news on social media, the company is right about Biscoff’s popularity:
Twitter user @thatsDaniforyou responded to the news calling the ice cream flavors “blessings:”
My God. Blessings abound.

While you might have to wait until July to try the Lotus Bakeries version, you don’t have to wait to get some cookie butter ice cream if you’re craving it, like, now, because Ben & Jerry’s and Trader Joe’s have their own versions of Speculoos cookie butter ice cream that you can sink your spoons into.
So, eat some now and then nab more in July when the newest products come to stores. If you ask us, the more cookie butter-flavored ice creams you try, the better.
So, bring on the deliciousness, Lotus Bakeries. We’ll be ready for you!
