Premium Dairy Products Company Expands Ice Cream Line, Introduces Seasonal Featured Flavors
Inspired by the flavors and aromas of Grandma’s kitchen on baking day, Tillamook is expanding its Premium Ice Cream line of nearly 40, year-round flavors with two new additions, Sticky Bun and Grandma’s Cake Batter, delighting consumers with delicious bites of sweet treats swirled into rich, creamy ice cream. Additionally, the company is rounding out the new flavor line-up with seasonal, limited-edition flavors, including Cinnamon Banana Bliss, Pumpkin, and the fan-christened Udderly Peanutbutterly.
On shelves now through approximately May 2011 is Cinnamon Banana Bliss, a blend of lightly sweet banana ice cream topped with ripples of cinnamon honey and sprinkled with crispy cinnamon fried ice cream flakes. Hitting stores for summer and available from approximately May through Oct. 2011, Udderly Peanutbutterly was named by Tillamook’s Facebook fans and is vanilla ice cream with a peanut butter swirl and mini peanut butter-filled chocolate cows. Wrapping up 2011 is the rich Pumpkin a frozen blend of puree and pie spice, available from approximately Oct. through Dec.
“Our Facebook following of more than 100,000 fervent fans has been a game-changer in our new product development,” said Jay Allison, Tillamook vice president of sales and marketing. “In the last year, we’ve started asking our fans for help choosing and naming new flavors and our new Udderly Peanutbutterly is the latest consumer-generated gem that’s making it all the way to store shelves this spring.”
Like all Tillamook dairy products, the line of Premium Ice Cream is made with only the highest quality milk from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones.
Tillamook Premium Ice Cream is available in grocery stores across the Pacific Northwest for a suggested retail price of $5.99. The full line of flavors is also available to visitors of the popular Tillamook Cheese Factory, headquartered on scenic Highway 101, two miles north of Tillamook, Ore., a coastal town located along the Pacific Ocean.
