As a kid in the 90’s, I remember seeing a commercial for the fanciest damn ice cream cake to ever grace the frozen foods aisle. What followed images of an exquisitely decorated dessert laced with serpentine frosting were well-manicured hands slicing into it before being served on silver platters. The voice over had me thinking I was watching a luxury car commercial rather than one for a Breyer’s ice cream product.
And thus Breyer’s Viennetta was born. You can reference the YouTube clip above and feel the same vibe that I felt nearly 30 years ago: this is some rich people ice cream.
Sadly the bougie treat would be phased out of the U.S. market a few years after its ritzy debut, leaving fans clamoring for Viennetta’s return for decades.
But now, thanks to Good Humor, Viennetta will be making its splashy return to the States in January 2021 for $5.49 at major retailers nationwide.
Get ready to flick a pinky up come dessert time.
