- Dove Bar
DoveBar is an American ice cream bar, created by Leo Stefanos at Dove Candies & Ice Cream in Chicago in 1956, and introduced nationally in 1985. The brand was bought by Mars Inc. in 1985, and the Dove Bar today is made by M&M/Mars. The Dove chocolate brand was named for the ice cream.
The flavors currently available are: Milk Chocolate with vanilla ice cream, Dark Chocolate with French Vanilla ice cream (original), Milk Chocolate with Almonds and vanilla ice cream, and Milk Chocolate with chocolate ice cream and a chocolate swirl (Triple Chocolate Ice cream Bar).
The traditional DoveBar has famously presented the consumer with the Consumption Conundrum, where eating a full bar is usually too much, but eating a half bar is just not satisfying.
Dove ice cream is also sold in pints or "Miniatures". The pints also have a layer of chocolate ganache on the top, containing an impression of the Dove logo.
