The Pop-Tart Ice Cream Sandwich At Carl's Jr. Is Going National

Carl's Jr. Strawberry Pop-Tart Ice Cream Sandwich

Carl’s Jr. announced it will offer the Strawberry Pop-Tart Ice Cream Sandwich for a limited time at all of its restaurants.

The family chain tested the dessert at a number of Southern California locations in the spring, but discontinued it until cries for its return on social media grew to a loud roar, according to Nation’s Restaurant News

“It’s very rare when a new menu item that is being tested in a small number of restaurants goes viral to the degree this one did, but that’s exactly what happened with the new Hand-Scooped Strawberry Pop-Tarts Ice Cream Sandwich,” Brad Haley, chief marketing officer for Carl’s Jr. parent CKE Restaurants Inc., told NRE.

Carl’s Jr. and Pop-Tarts promoted the the ice cream sandwich at Comic-Con this week and continued to use social media to get the word out on the dessert’s return.

The 320-calorie Pop-Tart dessert, is a deal, at just $1.49.
