Yuengling’s Ice Cream Announced as Official Ice Cream of the RailRiders
SWB, Yuengling’s Ice Cream Launch Partnership for 2017 Season
Moosic, Pa. – “Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks…” This summer there will be another fan favorite at the ballpark. Yuengling’s Ice Cream is pleased to announce that it has partnered with the Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (Triple-A/ New York Yankees) to become the official ice cream brand of the hometown team.
The ice cream will make its debut at PNC Field for the start of the 2017 season on April 10. Fans will eat up flavors including Vanilla, Chocolate, Black & Tan, Root Beer, Sea Salt Caramel, Chocolate Marshmallow, Orange Cream, Mint Chocolate Chip, Cookies & Cream, and Cinnamon Churro. And a new product—Yuengling’s Ice Cream soft serve—will also be available in a variety of flavors.
“We are very excited to be working with Yuengling’s Ice Cream. Their fantastic line of products will be a great addition for our fans this season,” said Rich Kloss, general manager of Legends Hospitality Management at PNC Field.
Yuengling’s Ice Cream returned to the market in 2014 after a nearly 30-year hiatus. The re-launch has been met with much acclaim. Cherry Vanilla Chunk was awarded gold at the World Dairy Expo Championship in the Flavored Fruit and/or Nut Ice Cream category, and Madagascar Vanilla took home gold in the Los Angeles International Dairy Competition in the "Premium Vanilla Ice Cream" category. The brand also received the Supermarket Guru “Hit” Product Seal for Cinnamon Churro, selected as “Pick of the Week.”
