Yuengling's Ice Cream Returning to Shelves
Revival targets grocery, convenience stores
ORWIGSBURG, Pa. -- A branch of the Yuengling family will re-launch its storied ice cream early in 2014, bringing back a cherished Pennsylvania-made product that's been absent from store shelves and scooping stands for nearly three decades.
Though the family name is one and the same, Yuengling's Ice Cream is unaffiliated with the Yuengling brewery.
"We are extremely proud to be reintroducing such a beloved product," said David Yuengling, president of Yuengling's Ice Cream. "Started by my great grandfather, Frank D. Yuengling during Prohibition, our ice cream brand is steeped in history. We plan to build on the family legacy, maintaining the highest standards of quality and value."
Yuengling's Ice Cream is a premium ice cream line of 10 all-natural flavors:
- Chocolate Chip
- Black and Tan (chocolate and caramel ice cream)
- Vanilla Fudge Chunk with Pretzels
- Espresso Chocolate Chip
- Chocolate Fudge Brownie
- Chocolate Marshmallow
- Root Beer Float
- Mint Chocolate Chip
The Yuengling family commitment to brand quality means that the ice cream will be made using only all-natural ingredients. The milk and cream will be locally sourced in Pennsylvania, with production also in Pennsylvania, making the brand PA Preferred.
The ice cream will be sold in grocery stores and convenience stores from Pittsburgh to New Jersey, and from Scranton, Pa., to northern Virginia.
