Perry’s Ice Cream Celebrates 100th Year with Release of Limited-Edition Retro Flavors

Akron, N.Y. –  March 21, 2018 – Perry’s Ice Cream, a fourth generation, family-owned ice cream company headquartered in Buffalo, New York, is celebrating their 100-year anniversary with the release of four limited-edition retro flavors including Parkerhouse, Heavenly Hash, Butterscotch Sundae and Malt Shoppe.

“For 100 years our family has embraced H. Morton Perry’s founding philosophy to ‘make sure you put in enough of the good stuff’ each and every day,” said Gayle Perry Denning, VP of Corporate Sustainability and Strategic Branding.

“The good stuff is about more than what we put into our ice cream – it’s about the moments we are thankful to have been a part of.  This milestone will be filled with celebration for those moments, from honoring our community to special events and bringing back some of our favorite flavors from the recipe vault,” added Denning.

All premium ice cream flavors are available in retro themed 1.50-quart packages and include the following:

·         Parkerhouse (circa 1950s) – Amaretto ice cream with maraschino cherries

·         Heavenly Hash (circa 1970s) – Chocolate and marshmallow swirled ice cream with swiss chips and roasted almonds

·         Butterscotch Sundae (circa 1980s) – Butterscotch ice cream with salty butterscotch swirls and roasted peanuts

·         Malt Shoppe (circa 1990s) – Malted vanilla ice cream with chocolate chips

To determine the four retro flavors, the Perry family and their product development team selected classic favorites from past decades.

In addition to the release of the retro flavors this spring, Perry’s is honoring their centennial with an ice cream party for Akron Central School, their first ice cream customer.  In the coming months, Perry’s will also offer special promotions, and the release of a special-edition “The Good Stuff” flavor in scoop shops, which consists of yellow cake ice cream with strawberry swirls and panda paw cups filled with strawberry cream.

Limited-edition retro flavors are available for purchase at Dash’s Market, Shurfine, Tops Friendly Markets, Wegmans, and stores throughout Western New York, Pennsylvania and the greater Virginia/Maryland region (exclusively at Wegmans locations).  The retro flavors are also available for purchase online.  Select Perry’s Ice Cream scoop shops will carry Parkerhouse and Heavenly Hash.
