Yuengling's Ice Cream Announces 2015 Flavors

ORWIGSBURG, Pa., Feb. 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As early as next week, customers will begin to see four new flavors of Yuengling's Ice Cream hit the shelves. These flavors – Original Sea Salt Caramel Swirl, Caramel Popcorn, Orange Cream and Peanut Butter Cup – will join the company's roster of 10 year-round flavors and two seasonal ice creams.

Original Sea Salt Caramel Swirl – the most requested new flavor – is a fan favorite before it even hits the shelves. It combines the company's creamy sea-salt caramel ice cream – already found in its signature Black & Tan flavor – with rich caramel swirls.

Peanut Butter Cup is a peanut butter lover's dream with rich Belgian chocolate and creamy peanut butter ice creams swirled together with peanut butter and chunks of peanut butter cup.

Caramel Popcorn puts a twist on sweet and salty as it combines sweet caramel swirls with a creamy buttered popcorn ice cream.

Orange Cream is bringing the summer to all seasons with sweet Madagascar vanilla ice cream swirled with orange cream.

"We loved coming up with these four new flavors and we're really excited to have our customers try them," said David Yuengling, president of Yuengling's Ice Cream. "The ideas came from a mix of our imaginations, popular trends in the food industry and customer requests. And, of course, our taste-testing panel comprised of 19 fans helped us choose which new flavors would be sold this year."

These four new flavors − available in grocery stores starting next week − will complement Yuengling's Ice Cream's current line of 10 premium ice cream flavors: Vanilla, Chocolate, Vanilla Fudge Chunk with Pretzels, Root Beer Float, Chocolate Chip, Espresso Chocolate Chip, Mint Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Fudge Brownie, Chocolate Marshmallow, and its signature flavor, Black & Tan.
