Testing of the item at a small number of Carl’s Jr. restaurants earlier this year produced a social media frenzy. The item was even mentioned by a late night TV comedian during his monologue. The ice cream sandwich is co-branded with Kellogg‘s (K) long-time breakfast food Pop-Tarts.

The Carl’s Jr. chain is operated by CKE Restaurants, owned by Apollo Management (APO).

Shares of Apollo Management fell more than 1% in Wednesday morning trading, while Kellogg’s dipped fractionally.
