The Hershey Company and Iceland partner on new frozen dessert line

MDR Brand Management is continuing to expand The Hershey Company brand in the UK, with its latest deal hitting stores just in time for Christmas.

The Hershey Company has partnered with Iceland Foods to launch an exclusive range of indulgent frozen desserts across all Iceland’s stores in the UK, Iceland online and The Food Warehouse.

The range will be available in over 1,000 stores nationwide. This marks the first time Iceland will partner with a US confectionery company as part of its exclusive brands.

The first products launching include Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Creme Ice Cream Cake, Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Creme Cupcakes, with Reese’s Cheesecake and Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Crème Cheesecake.

Further product innovation, for both Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Creme and Reese’s will be developed throughout 2022 and beyond.

“Partnering with Iceland Foods for this portfolio of products is an exciting step for Hershey’s global licensing programme in the UK,” commented Andy Paladino, senior manager global licensing at The Hershey Company. “Frozen desserts are a core product format for licensing and we’re thrilled to work with Iceland Foods to present our consumers in the UK with even more opportunities to enjoy Reese’s and Hershey’s Cookies ‘n’ Creme.

“We are delighted with the initial portfolio and confident strong performance will support additional, future innovation.”

Lauren Metcalfe, head of exclusive brands at Iceland Foods, added: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with The Hershey Company and our plans to bring incredible quality and innovative products to the frozen desserts and ambient bakery categories under the Hershey’s and Reese’s brands.

“The distinctive flavour profiles of Hershey’s and Reese’s are incredibly popular with our customers and we are thrilled to be part of their ambitious UK growth plans. This new partnership further cements Iceland’s position as the UK’s number one destination for Exclusive Food Ranges.”

Daniel Avener, ceo at MDR Brand Management, continued: ‘’We are thrilled to bring this partnership to life and to deliver high-quality, innovative and delicious desserts.

“Iceland is a key destination for frozen products, especially around the holiday season. This programme will strategically help to sustain Hershey’s and Reese’s rapid growth, as we continue to develop adjacent products across the UK and Europe.”
