FOUR FAR-OUT FACTS ABOUT BLUE MOON
Have you ever tasted something so out-of-this-world delicious it left you speechless? Overjoyed? Near tears? Well, that’s how many of our fans feel about our iconic Blue Moon flavor.
No one can really agree on a description of this mysterious treat, and frankly, as the ice cream experts, neither can we! Some say it’s fruity, others say it has hints of amaretto or pistachio, the haters will say it’s simply vanilla with blue food coloring. A Midwest favorite for many years, Blue Moon is truly in a universe unmatched by any other flavor. In fact, we suppose you could call it a UFO (Unidentified Flavor Option).
There are more than 200 moons in our solar system, but there’s only one Hudsonville Blue Moon. Here are four far-out facts about a flavor so unique, we can’t help but love it.
1. It’s More Than Just a Tasty Dessert
While we’re partial to the edible Blue Moon, it’s also an astronomical term! On rare occasions, a single calendar month will have two full moons instead of one, and the second full moon of that month is called a Blue Moon. This last occurred in March 2018, and in 2020, this rare lunar event takes place on Halloween. The best part about our Blue Moon is that you can enjoy it any day of the year.
2. It’s a Key Member of the SuperScoop Trio
While it’s delicious enough to stand all on its own, Blue Moon is an essential part of what makes SuperScoop so yummy. It plays well with Black Cherry and classic Vanilla to create a trifecta of flavor perfection—and just like Blue Moon, this one’s a classic Midwest favorite that’s often imitated, but can never be replicated.
3. Blue Moon Ice Cream Has its Own Phases
Something you may not know is that this flavor has its own phases just like the actual moon. We like to call them Full Bowl and New Carton. You’re all smiles with a big bowl of Blue Moon, but as you make your way to the bottom, you’ll find it’s quickly time for a new carton. And the cycle continues…
4. It’s Whatever You Want it to Be
The beauty of Blue Moon is that it can be whatever you want it to be. As you already know, we’re all about breaking the rules when it comes to ice cream creations, so break out the Blue Moon and give your family and friends a taste of the Midwest at your next ice cream social. Just remember to properly…planet… so you have enough ice cream to go around.
