Hudsonville Ice Cream is expanding its presence in the Windy City this fall with the introduction of three new Limited Edition seasonal flavors that are sure to leave Chicagoans hungry for more.
Inspired by your Chicago Bears, just in time for football season, Bear Traxx is made with Hudsonville’s Original Chocolate ice cream, with peanut butter ripple and fudge pieces. It will hit store shelves in early September, just as the NFL season begins.
Another stadium favorite, Chicago Caramel Popcorn offers a sweet-n-salty flavor, made with caramel popcorn ice cream, a salty ribbon of caramel and crunchy clusters.
Paying homage to its home state, Hudsonville Ice Cream will also deliver Pure Michigan Caramel Apple to Chicago this fall. This flavor was deemed the most “Pure Michigan” by an online contest in 2012, where consumers could submit their favorite Michigan-inspired flavors to be produced for regional distribution. This mouthwatering flavor is a combination of fresh Michigan apples folded into a special caramel-infused ice cream that tastes just like caramel apples on a stick!
“This is not our first year in Chicago, but this is our first big push in the area,” says Caryn Beatty, from Hudsonville Ice Cream. “Over the past five years, we’ve built relationships with several retail outlets—the newest being Jewel Osco, which we look forward to being a great partner within the Hudsonville family.”
“Jewel-Osco is excited to offer the quality Hudsonville Ice Cream brand to our customers,” says Bob Brown, assistant sales manager. “The new flavor, Bear Traxx, is sure to be a favorite for both Bears’ fans and ice cream lovers alike.”
In addition to Jewel-Osco stores you can also find Hudsonville Ice Cream at Meijer, Strack & Van Til, Ultra Mariano’s Fresh Market, Berkots, Angelo Caputos, Sunset Foods, Tony’s Finer Foods, Fairway Foods, Walts and many others.
