Batter Up Bucs Fans! The Pittsburgh Pirates and Perry’s Ice Cream Launch New Flavor

The Pittsburgh Pirates have officially announced the launch of a new custom ice cream flavor in collaboration with Perry’s Ice Cream. With Bucs fans in mind, Perry’s, the Official Ice Cream of the Pittsburgh Pirates, crafted the personalized flavor, Bucco Batter, just in time to celebrate a summer filled with baseball and raising the Jolly Roger.

Nothing says summer and ball games like ice cream and Pirates fans can now cheer on their team while indulging in Bucco Batter – a delicious yellow cake batter ice cream packed with crème filled cookie pieces. For Bucs fans in the Pittsburgh area, Bucco Batter is now available at Giant Eagle. To make this partnership even sweeter, Perry’s is donating a portion of the proceeds of every sale in support of Pirates Charities.

“When crafting Bucco Batter, we wanted the flavor to be delicious and innovative while paying homage to the team and dedicated Pirates fans”, said Nichole Buryta, Senior Brand Manager of Perry’s Ice Cream “The yellow cake batter ice cream with crushed crème filled cookies gives fans a new way to show off their spirit for the gold and black all summer long!”

“It’s been an exciting project to work with Perry’s Ice Cream to create a flavor that represents Pirates baseball,” said Travis Williams, President Pittsburgh Pirates. “Bucco Batter gives our passionate fanbase a way to show their team spirit while helping us support some great community initiatives.”

Bucs fans in Pittsburgh can always expect a perfect game with Bucco Batter on deck. Whether you’re gearing up for first pitch or heading to the freezer for the seventh inning stretch, Perry’s Ice Cream is a homerun gametime treat.

Pirates fans outside of the Pittsburgh area can find this brand-new flavor online with shipping across the continental U.S. at shop.perrysicecream.com.
