December 30, 2021

What a year! Spending time with friends, embarking on new adventures, and making lasting memories were all part of the sweet moments from 2021 that we’ll never forget. 

As we look ahead to 2022, we just had to reflect on what made the past 12 months so delightful. 

Brand New Flavors 

We’ve been making ice cream for a long time—95 years, in fact! The one way we know how to keep every year fresh, other than with our local milk and cream in every flavor we make, is NEW flavors. 

You can count on our Limited Edition flavors to bring something new to your table (or backyard, or wherever you are enjoying ice cream!) every single year. 

In 2021, not only did we bring back the classic Peppermint Stick, but we also had the return of American Fireworks. It was one surefire way to have a blast this summer!

We also had four totally new flavors: Cinnamon French Toast, Malted Milk Ball, Blueberry Graham Delight, and Baked Apple Crisp. They were all so delicious, we had a hard time deciding which one was our favorite!

And we can’t forget our two new pint flavors: Dairy Free Toasted Coconut and Extra Indulgent Caramel Coffee Chip! Honestly you can’t go wrong either way.

We have some sweet surprises up our sleeves for 2022, so stay tuned!

Blue Moon in the Spotlight

An astronomical blue moon only occurs every so often, but our Blue Moon ice cream is always available. Food & Wine Magazine profiled the mystery behind blue moon and which ice cream makers do it best. We’re not sad to be among the “Best of the Blues” list!

Fun & Creative New Recipes

We have a flavor for everyone, and for every occasion. Especially if you’re willing to experiment with out-of-the-ordinary recipes! 

A few of our faves? 

Breakfast Ice Cream Tacos from Anna at A Lily Love Affair—perfect for “Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day,” or any day, quite frankly!

These festive summertime desserts, like Red White and Blueberry ice cream sundaes and special American Fireworks Waffle Cones with Stars & Stripes Sprinkles, courtesy of Liz at With Wonder and Whimsy. These have us longing for a warm summer day.

Apple Cider Donut Mini Bundt Cakes from Stephanie at Dinner Club Diaries. No fall day is complete without a trip to the cider mill, so why not bring it home? We can still smell the cinnamon sugary goodness.

An Iconic Treat Reimagined

We’re all about partnerships, and this year was special because we paired up with fellow family-owned brand Little Debbie to recreate their famous Christmas Tree Cakes snack as an ice cream flavor. The Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cakes Ice Cream pints disappeared faster than Santa Claus on Christmas morning, but for us, the ice cream magic will live on.

Even Drew Barrymore got in on the fun!

Even though this year is coming to an end, we’re sure 2022 has amazing things in store for you, especially when ice cream is involved! Happy New Year!
