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
  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
