Cornetto is a branded frozen dessert cone manufactured by Unilever and marketed throughout the world under various company names, but with the same Heartbrand logo. However, depending on geographical region, several variations of the product exist, ranging from milk based ice cream to vegetable fat based dessert.
Eskimo Pie is a brand name for a chocolate-covered vanilla ice cream bar wrapped in foil, the first such dessert sold in the United States. It is now marketed by Nestle, owners of Dreyer's of the Western United States, and Edy's of the Eastern United States. The product was introduced to New Zealand in the 1940's, and are produced by Tip Top who are now a subsidiary of Fonterra, the country's largest multinational company.
Haagen-Dazs is an ice cream brand, established by Reuben and Rose Mattus in the Bronx, New York, in 1961. Starting with only three flavors: vanilla, chocolate, and coffee, the company opened its first retail store in Brooklyn, New York, on November 15, 1976. The business now has franchises throughout the United States and many other countries around the world.
Haagen-Dazs ice cream holds the distinction of being one of the few commercial ice cream brands not to use stabilizers such as guar gum, xanthan gum, or carageenan. In addition to ice cream, the company also produces ice cream bars, ice cream cakes, sorbet, frozen yogurt, and gelato.
Unilever is the world's biggest ice cream manufacturer, with an annual turnover of €5 billion. With the exception of its U.S. brands Popsicle, Klondike, Slim Fast ice cream, Breyers, Starbucks and Ben & Jerry's, the bulk of the company's ice cream business falls under its "Heartbrand" brand umbrella, so called because of the brand's heart-shaped logo. Unilever currently operates eleven ice cream factories in Europe; the biggest include factories at Hellendoorn in The Netherlands, Heppenheim in Germany, Caivano in Italy, St. Dizier in France, Gloucester in the United Kingdom and Santa Iria de Azoia in Portugal.
