Snohomish, WAÂ â€“ Fall is in the air, and Snoqualmie Ice Cream, maker of super-premium craft ice cream, frozen custard, and gelato from the Pacific Northwest, has released its 2016 holiday lineup, including a brand new flavor.
The limited-edition flavors will be available in pints at most grocery stores in the Northwest (WA, OR, ID, AK, MT) with retail prices between $3-$5 per pint, and can be shipped nationwide by ordering online from snoqualmieicecream.com.
Available from September through the end of December, the seasonal release includes Snoqualmie Ice Creamâ€™s annual holiday favorites, Pumpkin Custard and Peppermint Stick Gelato. Additionally, the company is introducing their highly-anticipated new Sun Liquor Fancy Egg Nog Frozen Custard. Sun Liquor has been crafting its custom famous egg nog for 10 years, and for the first time, they are partnering with Snoqualmie Ice Cream to create a non-alcoholic ice cream version of this wonderful seasonal classic.
â€śWe made a really great Egg Nog flavor in the past,â€ť said Barry Bettinger, owner and founder of Snoqualmie Ice Cream. â€śBut it had too much alcohol in it, and we werenâ€™t able to sell it at retail. Our collaboration with the wonderful team at Sun Liquor has allowed us to perfect a non-alcoholic recipe with a fantastic taste, and itâ€™s a real treat – weâ€™re thrilled about it!â€ť
â€śWe are huge fans of Snoqualmie Ice Cream,â€ť said Erik Chapman, Head Distiller and Operations Manager at Sun Liquor. â€śThe marriage of our two iconic Pacific Northwest brands has been a really fun opportunity to create a truly special frozen treat for the holidays.â€ť
All Snoqualmie Ice Cream products are made with more cream and less air in the companyâ€™s sustainable factory North of Seattle, making it the creamiest ice cream on the market. The all-natural pints are vat-pasteurized in small batches, rBST-free and sweetened with non-GMO cane sugar.
The three 2016 seasonal holiday flavors are:
- Sun Liquor Fancy Egg Nog Custard: This non-alcoholic double-egg frozen custard is a Snoqualmie spin on Sun Liquor Distilleryâ€™s famous Fancy Egg Nog.
- Pumpkin Custard: A classic combination of pumpkin puree, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger make this frozen custard taste just like a pumpkin pie!
- Peppermint Stick Gelato: Natural mint candies are swirled into a peppermint gelato for this holiday favorite.
