Dove Bar is an American ice cream bar, created by Leo Stefanos at Dove Candies & Ice Cream in Chicago in 1956, and introduced nationally in 1985. The brand was bought by Mars Inc. in 1985, and the Dove Bar today is made by M&M/Mars. The Dove chocolate brand was named for the ice cream.
Each ice cream bar has either vanilla or chocolate ice cream, coated in chocolate. The ice cream bars are sold either individually or in a three-pack. It is considered both ice cream and candy.
The flavors currently available are: Milk Chocolate with vanilla ice cream, Dark Chocolate with French Vanilla ice cream (original), Milk Chocolate with Almonds and vanilla ice cream, and Milk Chocolate with chocolate ice cream and a chocolate swirl (Triple Chocolate Ice cream Bar).
