The single-serve category has seen steady growth in ice cream demand.

Ice cream manufacturers use different ingredients to satisfy food regulators in each region. Key manufacturers are developing different formulations. Unique combinations of flavors or textures are another way they differentiate their products. This may make it easier to identify candy bars and sticks.
