Velvet Ice Cream, Utica, Ohio, is taking a seasonal favorite - peppermint ice cream - and introducing what is destined to be a new favorite: Velvet Peppermint Ice Cream Sandwiches. The novelty hit stores this month and features peppermint ice cream between two chocolate wafers.
“Each year we get dozens and dozens of phone calls from consumers wanting to know when and where they’ll be able to buy our peppermint ice cream,” says Luconda Dager, president. “We only produce it for the holidays and it’s extremely popular. We experimented with the peppermint sandwiches earlier this year and it was a slam dunk. Our tasting panel loved the combination of peppermint and chocolate. They are really refreshing. We expect this to be another very popular seasonal item for us.”
