OAKVILLE , ON, Aug. 29, 2011 /CNW/ - Double Double lovers rejoice - Canada's hottest coffee order can now be enjoyed as a frozen treat. The new Tim Hortons Double Double ice cream flavour is launching today at Cold Stone Creamery locations in Canada.
The Tim Hortons Double Double ice cream, inspired by Canada's most popular hot coffee order, was created by Cold Stone Creamery Canada's chefs and research and development experts, to mimic the exact combination of cream, sugar and Tim Hortons proprietary blend and roast of premium coffee. A unique relationship between Tim Hortons and Cold Stone Creamery in Canada brings the fresh and premium ice cream brand, known around the world, to more than 100 co-branded restaurants across the country.
"There are many coffee-flavoured ice creams out there but no one else can offer a Tim Hortons coffee flavour except Cold Stone Creamery," said Andrea Hughes, Cold Stone Creamery Canada's resident ice cream expert. "Double Double fans will recognize it right away."
It took more than a year to perfect the unique flavour profile of the Double Double ice cream. Under the guidance of Kevin West, Tim Hortons' Senior Director of Coffee Operations, Cold Stone Creamery experts developed an extract of Tim Hortons' exclusive blend and roast of Arabica coffee beans and infused it in just the right proportions into Cold Stone Creamery's sweet cream ice cream variety.
"The result is not just a coffee flavour. You really do taste that creaminess and sweetness Canadians expect and love when they order a Double Double coffee," said Hughes. "It's really the perfect marriage of both brands."
Double Double is now the second Tim Hortons-inspired flavour at Cold Stone Creamery Canada. Earlier this year, the Apple Fritter ice cream was launched to celebrate the co-branded relationship.
