“After more than a century of serving ice cream lovers, it’s still exciting every time we introduce new flavors and tastes to our customers,” Velvet Ice Cream President Luconda Dager said. “People look forward to the new offerings each season and our product development team really knocked it out of the park this year.”
Velvet always has something for everyone – the 56 oz premium ice cream which is available in 30 signature rich flavors, is now available in:
- Blackberry Cobbler: this flavor is a delicious spin on a comfort food favorite. Creamy vanilla ice cream is swirled with a decadent blackberry sauce and chunks of crisp cobbler that bring back memories of warm, of summer cookouts and family gatherings.
Velvet Ice Cream Sandwiches not only have two new flavors but also have a brand-new package design. New flavors include:
- Choc-Full-O-Mint. Chocolate meets mint in this take on the classic ice cream sandwich. Refreshing mint ice cream is sandwiched between two rich chocolate wafers.
- Whole Lotta Chocolate. This ice cream sandwich is for the chocolate die-hards. Classic chocolate ice cream is sandwiched between two rich chocolate wafers.
The new flavors will be available at grocery and convenient stores throughout the Velvet distribution areas as well as more than three dozen dipping parlors including Velvet’s Ye Olde Mill in Utica, to open at a to-be-determined date when the state’s shelter-in-place order has lifted.
