From Merry and Bright to Sneaky Elves, Perry’s Holiday Flavors Return!


Akron, N.Y. – October 23, 2019 –  Are you dreaming of a White Christmas, cuddling up by the fire with a cup of Hot Cocoa, swirled with a photo worthy Peppermint Stick? Or does the looming holiday season make you feel more like scattered Elf Trash?


Perry’s Ice Cream Company, Inc., a Great Lakes regional brand and Upstate New York’s #1 ice cream, knows the holidays can be filled with bliss and stress (sometimes simultaneously).  Perry’s has your full range of holiday moments covered by bringing back their classic holiday seasonal favorites, Peppermint Stick and White Christmas. Elf Trash and Hot Cocoa are also returning for a second season after a widely successful 2018 launch. Demand for Hot Cocoa in 2018 soared and the flavor sold out by Christmas Eve, far ahead of winter’s end in the Great Lakes region.


Perry’s Seasonal Holiday flavor descriptions:

Elf Trash, a mischevious concoction of fudge filled holiday candies, fudge coated pretzels, and fudge coated (see a fudge theme here?) praline peanuts, all swirled in white chocolate ice cream. This holiday mixture is available in pints (so you don’t have to be nice and share).

Hot Cocoa, a winter classic: mini marshmallows float throughout hot chocolate ice cream (pairs well a scoop of peppermint stick).  Available in a 48oz. family size, so everyone can snuggle up by the fire and enjoy!

Peppermint Stick, pink peppermint ice cream with red and green peppermint candies. Available in 48oz. and select Perry’s scoop shops to satisfy your candy cane fix until next year.

White Christmas, a holiday tradition of mint and white chocolate ice cream with red and green mint flakes.  Available in 48 oz. (score brownie points with your in-laws by having enough of this favorite for the extended family).


“Traditions are a connection to our past and a link joining people in the future.” said Gayle Perry Denning, fourth generation family member and vice president of strategic branding. “That’s why its so important for us to bring back favorites like White Christmas and Peppermint Stick year after year, added Perry Denning.  With Elf Trash and Hot Cocoa, we aimed to incorporate innovative flavor trends with whimsical and light-hearted packaging to create relevancy and new traditions with Perry’s.”


Pick up Perry’s limited edition holiday flavors before they are just a twinkle in Santa’s eye.


The flavors are arriving on shelves at a number of local retailers across New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina, including Dash’s Market, Shurfine, Tops Markets and Wegmans Food Markets. Select Perry’s scoop shops will also carry Peppermint Stick.
