Ghirardelli Chocolate Company’s Professional Products Division introduced a new Vanilla Premium Powder Base to provide a premium solution for vanilla smoothies, frappés, and milkshakes.

Vanilla, one of the most popular flavors, has enjoyed a 40 percent increase in menu incidence over the last three years. 

Crafted with real Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla and inspired by slow-churned premium vanilla ice cream, Ghirardelli’s Vanilla Powder Base gives operators an amazing foundation to create fabulous frappés, fresh fruit and juice smoothies, and sensational shakes with smooth, even consistency.

Considered the world’s finest, Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla offers a sweet, creamy, mellow flavor with velvety after-tones and enticing aroma, bringing Ghirardelli’s Vanilla Powder Base to life from first sip to last.

"Delivering on the promise on the Ghirardelli brand, we have built a very strong following with our premium chocolate and caramel products. Now, we have developed an equally premium product with our new Vanilla flavor profile," says Chris Eklem, vice president of Ghirardelli Professional Products. "By selecting the very best vanilla flavor, our product development team has developed an exceptionally smooth and consistent base for smoothies, frappes, or even milk shakes, which will allow our customers to add fruit or other ingredients and create delicious offerings for their consumers."
