As the weather warms up, we'll all be looking for new, tasty ways to cool down. And some exciting frozen desserts are hitting the freezer aisle in just a few weeks.

M&M's parent company, Mars Wrigley, announced that they are expanding the M&M's ice cream cookie sandwich collection with two new flavors: mint and a new take on their classic cookie sandwich.

The green-colored mint flavor, which will be available just in time for St. Patrick's Day on March 17, features refreshing mint ice cream that is sandwiched between two M&M-studded chocolate cookies. The new classic sandwich features creamy vanilla ice cream and two soft-baked chocolate M&M cookies.

Both offerings, sold in packs of four, will be available at major supermarkets nationwide beginning in early March — so keep an eye out!

"We're excited to expand the joy of M&M'S colorworks to the Mars Wrigley ice cream line, starting with a minty green treat for St. Patrick's Day," Jayesh Shah, Ice Cream Marketing Director at Mars, said in a press release. "These new flavors add even more options alongside our fan-favorite M&M'S Vanilla and Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches – offering a fun and enjoyable treat for any occasion."

2021 is really shaping up to be a year filled with exciting new frozen treats — multiple ice cream companies have unveiled some serious innovations that we can't wait to try.

Ben & Jerry's new line is truly over-the-top. The Topped collection features seven flavors that are finished with a layer of rich chocolate ganache and chunks of sweet candies. Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream may have the most surprising flavor of all, though: Everything Bagel (and yes, it includes onion and garlic).
