White Rabbit, the iconic Chinese milk candy, is now an ice cream flavor.
Wanderlust Creamery has reportedly recreated the creamy goodness of everyone’s childhood favorite in their White Rabbit Candy ice cream.
The Los Angeles-based ice cream shop announced the sale of its latest offering on their social media accounts on Feb. 21. According to the post, the product is the result of a collaboration with the website, Foodbeast.
In an earlier post, the Instagram account of the creamery shared that the flavor was created to celebrate the Lunar New Year.
“A while back, chatting with @reach_hard of @foodbeast about the nostalgic moments that inspire some of our flavors at Wanderlust Creamery, he suggested a White Rabbit candy flavor. We knew we had to save this Asian favorite flavor for Lunar New Year. Intensely milky and singular in flavor, it encapsulates childhood reminiscence for many Asian Americans. Savor this seasonal @foodbeast flavor through February in stores.”

While most netizens were excited about the White Rabbit Candy ice cream, some were irked that they removed the iconic rice paper wrapping that coats the candy, and even dubbed it as “annoying.”
In response, the creamery shared their reason for removing the paper:
While it was announced that the special flavor would be available for only nine days, demand was so high that the ice cream company decided to extend its availability through March.

Extended through March! Each flavor we make at Wanderlust Creamery is inspired by places we’ve been, 💺 🌏 places we want to go, and childhood memories. So it was only appropriate that @foodbeast’s @reachguinto suggested this as a nod to Asian childhood. Made with actual White Rabbit candies dissolved into a custom base, and spun into milky-buttery White Rabbit in ice cream form 🍬 🐇🍦. 13 freshly made gallons were delivered to each store last night- but hurry, it won’t last long! ‼️UPDATE 9:29 pm 2/24‼️- ALL LOCATIONS SOLD OUT of 39 gallons in one day- we’re working hard to get this store restocked ASAP. Please stay tuned via our stories for updates. ______________________________________________________ 📍Tarzana – SOLD OUT 📍Atwater Village – SOLD OUT📍 Venice – SOLD OUT ❌ This flavor not sold at SmorgasburgLA _______________________________________________________#wanderlustcreamery #eatwanderlust #whiterabbit #foodbeast
