Johnny Rockets, Kraft Foodservice Partner Again to Create New Twist on Classic Shake
LAKE FOREST, Calif., Dec. 21 // PRNewswire // -- International restaurant chain Johnny Rockets, known worldwide for its authentic, hand-dipped shakes, announces the launch of its newest frozen treat, the Oreo® Peppermint Shake, available through 2010.
This is the second time Johnny Rockets has partnered with Kraft Foodservice to create an innovative take on the original shake, with the first collaboration producing the Johnny Rockets Cherry KOOL-AID Shake.
"We are excited to have the opportunity to join forces with Johnny Rockets once again to offer customers a new, festive shake for the holiday season," said Nate Hedtke of Kraft Foodservice. "The partnering of two classic American brands is a recipe that we hope we will continue to use."
Staying true to the Johnny Rockets pledge of the all-American shake, the Oreo® Peppermint Shake is hand-blended with a combination of real Oreo® cookie pieces, DaVinci Peppermint Paddy Syrup and premium vanilla ice cream.
