And the New 2013 Flavors Are…
April 8th, 2013
It’s Time to Drop by Your Local Ice Cream Stand… Perry’s new 2013 flavors have arrived!!!
Lactose Free Vanilla: we bet if you let your friends and family try this vanilla without telling them it is lactose free, they wouldn’t be able to guess! It was a favorite of many Perry’s team members at our annual company meeting, and you simply have to try it! It makes sense for us to be so confident you’ll like it, since the only difference between our regular premium vanilla and our premium lactose free vanilla is the absence of lactose.
Needless to say, this flavor is BIG NEWS for those who are lactose intolerant – trips to an ice cream stand are equal opportunity for all from now on!
Sponge Candy: caramel sugar flavored ice cream with caramelized sugar swirls and sponge candy pieces.
Ice cream stands that have already opened for the season, like Green Acres Ice Cream, 2 Scoops Ice Cream, Frosty’s Ice Cream couldn’t keep this Buffalo-inspired flavor in stock and have to asked for urgent additional delivery. Need we say more?
Movie Time: Popcorn flavored ice cream with sea salt caramel swirls and caramel truffles. Try it and you’ll see why this flavor was named 2013’s “Most Innovative” by the International Dairy Foods Association (aka the trusted authority on all things ice cream).
Fair warning: make sure you have time to see a movie after you try this flavor. We don’t think you’ll be able to fight the temptation!
Oh My, Cherry Pie! Vanilla ice cream with cherry and graham cracker swirls.
What can be better than a homemade cherry pie? Our answer is: cherry pie ala mode, served chilled, in an ice cream cone.
Queen Of Hearts: Dark chocolate ice cream with raspberry swirls and fudge filled hearts.
An ultimate indulgence! Let’s just say we are quite confident that dark chocolate lovers will really enjoy this flavor.
You will be able to find all of these new flavors at ice cream stands that have already opened for the season. An easy way to find any flavor nearby is by using our flavor finder tool: http://www.perrysicecream.com/where-to-buy/. Let us know how you like the new flavors by commenting on this post, on our Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. (#PerrysNewFlavors2013).

May the best flavor win!
March 26th, 2013
It is this time of the year again! We are about to begin our second installment of the Flavor Faceoff.
This year we have asked our Perry’s fans on Facebook to nominate the flavors to the playoffs. The 2013 bracket is a true representation of the nominations – the more votes a flavor received, the higher it ranked. Flavors then were grouped into two conferences: Chocolate and Vanilla. Match-ups were scheduled according to flavor rankings.
Click the image to download the copy of the bracket.
For just one more day the sweepstakes form would be open to accept guesses at what flavor will be left standing in the end. All correct guesses will be entered to win a YEAR’S SUPPLY of Perry’s! So, hurry and take a guess!
Beginning March 28th two match-ups a day will be posted to Perry’s Ice Cream Facebook wall. The flavor that collects the most votes proceeds to the next round.
Good luck with taking a guess! And hurry, the entries are accepted for just one more day!
A Simple Guide to Packaging
January 30th, 2013
When you are standing in front of the ice cream aisle, pondering which product or new flavor to try, it can all be confusing. There are so many different options… Premium ice cream! All natural ice cream! Frozen yogurt! Light ice cream! Sherbet! Light no sugar added ice cream! Not to mention the variety of flavors.
You may not have noticed, but at Perry’s we’ve tried to make finding your favorite product easier. How did we do this? We’ve color-coded the package! Below is a simple guide to help you decode the different offerings.
Perry’s signature premium ice cream is in a black package. For seasonal or special offerings, sometimes we add some extra details (like pumpkins on Pumpkin Pie) but the background is black.
Extra tidbit: Perry’s was the first to use a black carton in the ice cream category!
The only exception is for our specialty flavor with the Buffalo Sabres, Top Shelf Sundae. It is blue and gold, of course!
Perry’s all-natural premium ice cream is our newest package, with a light brown textured background.
Perfectly Churned™ light ice cream has a yellow gold background with a churned swirl.
Light no sugar added ice cream is in a deep blue package. A scroll on the package also calls out the vitamins, sugar content, and fat content in the product!
Perry’s frozen yogurt has a deep magenta package. Like the light no sugar added ice cream, this package has a handy scroll that lists all the vitamins in the product!
Last but, not least, sherbet is in a white package with light blue accents.
Hopefully this guide will help you find your favorite product the next time you visit the ice cream aisle. And if you accidentally grab the wrong item, we guarantee it will still taste great!
