Ice Cream Bananas Invite You to Eat the Peel and the Pop

June 3, 2014
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’s 50th anniversary inspired Wonka Ice Cream to come out with new frozen treats that look and peel like bananas but can be completely devoured.

Nestle USA introduces Wonka Peel-a-Pop frozen treats, which look and peel like bananas, but in true Wonka form, the peels are edible. Timed with the 50th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the release of these whipple-scrumptious dessert pops continues Willy Wonka’s grand legacy. With a never-ending stockpile of normalness in the world, the newest Wonka frozen creation will bring a much-needed dose of playfulness to dessert time, or any time.

To celebrate the launch of Peel-a-Pop frozen treats, the Wonka brand transported its whimsical inspiration to the heart of New York City with a Winter Wonka-land pop-up. At the three-day event, dessert dreamers got a playful glimpse into the mind of Willy Wonka as they enjoyed complimentary Peel-a-Pop frozen treats in a frozen funderland complete with Oompa Loompas.

Like two desserts in one, Peel-a-Pop frozen treats are as fun to peel as they are to eat. They come in two scrummdiddlyumptious flavors: Vanilla Banana and Vanilla Grape. The treats come eight to a carton and have a suggested retail price of $4.29.
