Blogger Foodie Mumma Ren was quick to notice the new dessert in the freezer section of Coles and shared a photo on Facebook with her 15,000 followers.

‘Yum!’ one person said, another added: ‘I need to go to Coles!’ 

The new ice cream is a suitable alternative to the supermarket’s regular flavours, such as chocolate and boysenberry, and is sure to be a family favourite. 

After the news was shared on social media, customers were eager to try it for themselves.

The product will only be available for a limited amount of time during the festive season.
