Yuengling Ice Cream About To Hit Grocery Shelves

ORWIGSBURG, Pa. (AP) – An ice cream brand with a famous name in Pennsylvania is coming back to stores shelves in about a month.

The Intelligencer Journal/ Lancaster New Era reported (http://bit.ly/1aaDj4C ) Thursday that Yuengling’s Ice Cream will be on sale in six states after a 28-year hiatus.

It’s being produced in Tamaqua with an initial run of 100,000 quarts in 10 flavors. The newspaper says interest in the product led the company to start production earlier than previously planned.

The ice cream company based in Orwigsburg isn’t affiliated with the well-known Pottsville brewery that carries the same name, but it’s owned by a branch of the same family.

The flavors include espresso chocolate chip, black and tan (chocolate and caramel ice cream), vanilla fudge chunk with pretzels and root beer float.
