Edwardsville-based Prairie Farms Dairy, a cooperative owned by more than 800 dairy farm families, is launching 18 new ways to snack with the introduction of Small Batch Cream Cheese Spreads in 3.5-ounce cups and Small Batch Ice Cream pints.
The names, which range from Sea Salt Caramel Cream Cheese Spread to Savannah Fudge Pie Ice Cream feature 100 percent real milk and cream from local farm families.
A total of six cream cheese flavors and twelve ice cream flavors are included in the snacking launch.
“Launching 18 new snacking options is an extraordinary first for Prairie Farms. Our new products and flavors address the thriving snacking category, which has seen unprecedented growth – despite pandemic-driven changes in shopping and working routines,” said Rebecca Leinenbach, vice president of marketing and communications for Prairie Farms. “Our cream cheese spreads and ice cream offer convenience, value, and permission to indulge. The flavor variety makes personalized snacking easy for all family members. Our farm-to-table values align with our customers’ expectations for quality, food safety, and transparency.”
Prairie Farms Small Batch Cream Cheese Spreads are made with Neufchatel cheese. The 3.5-ounce right-size cups are available in six flavors: Garden Veggie, Honey Vanilla, Onion & Chive, Plain, Sea Salt Caramel, and Strawberry.
Prairie Farms Small Batch Ice Cream is available in pint cartons in seven flavors: Belgian Chocolate, Black Walnut, Butter Pecan, Cookies ‘N Cream, Homemade Vanilla, Vanilla, Vanilla Bean; and five custom combos: Caramel Praline Pecan, Savannah Fudge Pie, Salted Caramel Toffee Brittle, Strawberry Shortcake and The Hill.
Support for the launch includes weekly giveaways, in-store point of sale, video content spotlighting behind-the-scenes visits with Chef Rob on his inspiration for creating the custom-blended ice cream flavors, and more.
