Know Your Perry’s Colors

January 14th, 2014

Perry’s Ice Cream offers a variety of products and flavors to satisfy every craving!  We know that the wide variety may be a bit overwhelming, so here at Perry’s we tried to make your search a little simpler by color coding each package.  Whether you’re looking for our Premium Panda Paws or Perfectly Churned Light Piece Of Cake, knowing your Perry’s colors will help finding the product that much easier!

A Simple Guide to Packaging White

Perry’s signature Premium ice cream is in a black package.  Extra details are sometimes added to the black background for seasonal and special offerings (like confetti for the Birthday Bash).  Fun fact: Perry’s Ice Cream was the first to use a black carton in the ice cream category!

One of the exceptions is our specialty flavor with the Buffalo Sabres, Top Shelf Sundae.  It has a blue background, but still keeps the black rim to help identify this Premium flavor.

All Natural Premium has a light brown textured background.

Perfectly Churned Light is designed with a gold background and a churned swirl.  The scroll on the package shows the percentage of less fat and fewer calories the flavor has compared to regular ice cream.

Frozen Yogurt has a deep magenta package.  It also displays a scroll that helps list all the vitamins in the product!

Light, No Sugar Added is has a royal blue background.  Like the Frozen Yogurt, the scroll points out the vitamins, sugar and fat content in the product.

Ice Cream for Our Out-of-Area Fans

December 18th, 2013

So many Western New Yorkers miss their local favorites when they move out of state. Sometimes it comes as a surprise that Perry’s Ice Cream isn’t available nationwide and it is usually one of the quintessential WNY staples that are dearly missed. Through our Social Media channels we receive outcries for Perry’s Ice Cream from the Carolinas, Virginia, Florida, Maryland, and Maine almost daily. Although we can’t satisfy these requests completely and Perry’s Ice Cream isn’t available for online ordering at this time, there are a few facts that our out-of-area fans should find helpful.

  1. Wegmans stores almost always carry Perry’s Ice Cream, including the new, recently opened stores in Maryland, New Jersey, and Virginia. If you live in one of these states, locate the nearest Wegmans store by visiting Wegmans.com.
  2. If you live in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana or Mississippi and have a Winn-Dixie store in the neighborhood, you would be glad to learn that Winn-Dixie’s line of premium ice cream, Prestige, is crafted right here at Perry’s Ice Cream, in Akron, NY. Although the recipe for each flavor is unique to Prestige, they are all made with the same high standard for quality and taste as you would expect from Perry’s Ice Cream. So, next time while passing through your local Winn-Dixie’s ice cream aisle, give Prestige ice cream a try! Winn-Dixie Prestige Strawberry Cheesecake
  3. Come visit home often! Each spring and many times in the fall we introduce new flavors for the consumers to try. Along with offering all-time favorites, Perry’s Ice Cream is always ready to surprise with new, tasty flavors. We keep our consumers in the loop on the new flavors via our website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, newsletter (subscribe via www.perrysicecream.com) – you name it! Connect with us in your preferred way and you will always be in the know about our newest additions.

12 Days of Perry's Banner Square

Beginning December 9 and for the next 12 days you can visit our Facebook page in the morning to receive your daily challenge. To participate and enter to win you simply need to comment underneath the question with your answer – it is your automatic ticket to win daily prizes, including a Perry’s Ice Cream home delivery … to anywhere in the US! Detailed rules to this sweepstakes can be found via THIS LINK.

It is a special chance you wouldn’t want to miss, because anywhere in the US literally means – anywhere in the US. Is there a grandma that lives in Florida? Well, you’ll have a chance to send her a very special care package. Is there a brother that moved out to West Coast? He might be getting a special delivery.

We will be selecting Perry’s Ice Cream home delivery winners at the end of the 12 Days of Perry’s, so you have 12 chances to enter for this grand prize by answering each of the 12 questions. There are special daily prizes as well, including a brand new Perry’s Ice Cream scoop (you can’t buy one like this anywhere), which will stay cool longer than an ordinary scoop to help with scoopability (yes, we actually use a term like that! ).

Perrys Ice Cream New Scoop

To top off the 12 Days of Perry’s fun, there is also a new $1 OFF coupon for Perry’s fans and friends available - CLICK HERE to print yours.

Perry’s Ice Cream Celebrates Its 95th Anniversary

November 13th, 2013

It was 1918 when H. Morton Perry learned troubling news from his doctor – he was to to give up his career as a broom maker, since he had become allergic to something in the broom making process. Morton wasn’t a man that would be troubled with such news. Soon enough he found another career path. On November 13, 1918 H. Morton Perry signed a deed that made him the owner of a horse, a wagon, a milk route and some milk bottling equipment. And the rest is history!

Thank You for the 95 Years of Perry's!

Thank You for the 95 Years of Perry’s!

This week our Perry’s Ice Cream family celebrates 95 years of craftsmanship and service, and 95 years of community support – there certainly would not be Perry’s Ice Cream today if generation after generation of Western New Yorkers and Northern Pennsylvanians wouldn’t have chosen Perry’s as their preferred brand of ice cream.

During this special celebratory week we are remembering our heritage through a special photo gallery that will take you to to certain milestones in our 95 year history.

You also have a chance to win some Perry’s with one condition – you must demonstrate your Perry’s Ice Cream knowledge. We are posting a question a day on our Facebook and Twitter pages, and every correct comment gives you a chance to win. The more answers you guess correctly, the more chances you have to win, with the top award being the special prize of one year’s supply of Perry’s.

More than anything this week we would like to thank you – our consumers and customers – for making the 95 years possible. With a great team here are Perry’s, who helped us along the way, we are gearing up for at least another 95 years!

Please join us in this celebration though the above activities and good luck with the trivia!
