Johnson’s Real Ice Cream Reimagines their Ice Cream Sandwiches with the help of C.Krueger’s Finest Baked Goods

Two iconic Columbus brands join forces to create the ultimate line of ice cream sandwiches.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (June 16, 2022) – Johnson’s Real Ice Cream— one of Columbus’ most beloved ice cream makers — today announced its line of reimagined ice cream sandwiches made in partnership with Columbus’ much admired baked goods company C.Krueger’s Finest Baked Goods.  

We continually look for ways to reinvent our signature treats and are excited to launch these “perfected”  ice cream sandwiches to ice cream (and cookie) fans everywhere, said Matt Wilcoxon, president of Johnson’s Real Ice Cream. “ We wanted an exceptional cookie to complement our best-in-class ice creams and immediately thought of Cheryl and C.Krueger’s.”

After over two years of development, the team at C.Krueger’ developed a series of cookies that maintain a chewy consistency and delicious homemade taste all while frozen. Specifically, C.Krueger’s is supplying Johnson’s with Chocolate Chip, Sugar, Double Chocolate Chip and Snickerdoodle Cookies for their signature ice cream sandwiches– with more flavors to come.

“At C.Krueger’s we’re passionate about creating delicious premium baked goods and equally passionate about supporting local, which is why we’re so proud of our new partnership with Johnson’s,” said Cheryl Krueger, president of C.Krueger’s Finest Baked Goods. She continued, “Johnson’s is synonymous with quality ice creams and it was a natural fit and a win-win for both.”

The ice cream sandwich lineup consists of a variety of flavors including:

Ice Cream Sandwiches

Classic Vanilla: Family recipe vanilla ice cream between two chocolate chip cookies;

Mint Chip: Signature “Mighty Mint and Chip” ice cream between two chocolate chip cookies;

Buckeye: Family recipe peanut butter ice cream (made with Krema peanut butter) between two double chocolate chip cookies;
