Ample Hills Creamery Releases Star Wars Ice Cream Pints
December 01 2015, Brooklyn’s Ample Hills Creamery Releases Star Wars™ Ice Cream Pints. Sold Exclusively Online at AmpleHills.com and created in Celebration of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” (In Theaters December 18).
Ample Hills Creamery, the family-owned ice cream company rated #1 in New York City by Zagat and named “Best Ice Cream in America” by Food Network, announces the release tomorrow of two limited edition Star Wars ice cream flavors. The two flavors—THE DARK SIDE and THE LIGHT SIDE—were conceived in collaboration with Disney Consumer Products.
Ample Hills begin accepting orders December 1st, orders will begin shipping December 9th. The ice cream flavors will be sold in four-packs of collectible, reusable plastic pint containers (two of each flavor) featuring Star Wars characters and original artwork from Ample Hills Creamery’s Art Director, Lauren Kaelin.
The pints will be sold only at AmpleHills.com, for $36 per four-pack (plus one- or two-day shipping) and can be delivered anywhere in the U.S.
THE LIGHT SIDE flavor is a bright marshmallow ice cream with homemade crispie clusters, as well as a smattering of handmade cocoa crispies (to represent the dark side still lurking within the light).
THE DARK SIDE, by contrast, is an ultra-dark chocolate ice cream with espresso fudge brownies, cocoa crispies, and white chocolate pearls (to represent the light still hiding in the dark, waiting to burst through).
Ample Hills Creamery co-owner and ice cream maker Brian Smith says: “As a sci-fi writer in my past professional life, and a longtime Star Wars fan”—(“Star Wars super fan,” clarifies Jackie Cuscuna, co-owner of Ample Hills and Smith’s wife)—“this is a dream collaboration. And to be able to work with Lucasfilm and Disney Consumer Products to create new ice cream flavors that represent the two sides of The Force…that might just be the coolest thing we’ve ever done.”
