In recent years, the sweets and confectionery market has seen the release of pistachio flavor products one after another. In the ice cream market alone, the amount of sales in pistachio flavors has grown around tenfold in just four years (according to research conducted by Intage SRI for the Ice Cream Market.) And Pistachio flavour won’t just stop here, as it is becoming more and more popular.

Jumping on the pistachio train, is the much loved bite-sized ice cream Pino.
In their latest release, smooth pistachio ice cream acts as the filling inside these chocolate coated sweets, creating a harmonious flavour that will leave you craving for more.

Fragrant pistachio ice cream mixed with pistachio paste, topped with a thin coating of milk chocolate and crispy pistachio shavings. The secret ingredient, French Lorraine rock salt is added to the ice cream, enhancing the depth and sweetness of the pistachio flavour.

The new flavour will be landing early at Convenience stores from Monday 31 May 2021, before heading on over to join the ice cream aisle in supermarkets nationwide from 12 July 2021. The sweet won’t be available for long though, as it will disappear from freezers around November of this year.
