From a press release:

“Ice Cream Jubilee is releasing its line of fall ice cream flavors to the public on Monday, September 11, 2017. Ice Cream Jubilee is also having a “Sneak Peek” Flavor Tasting Party on September 9-10, 2017. Tickets may be purchased for $8 for a flight of 7 flavors here.

“Pumpkin spice is nice, but Ice Cream Jubilee is a pumpkin-free zone this fall! I started Ice Cream Jubilee three years ago because I see my world in ice cream flavors. There are so many other delicious fall flavors – like whiskey, maple, molasses, apple, dark beer, and nuts – that I’m excited to share with our ice cream fans!” said Victoria Lai, Ice Cream Jubilee founder.

· Sweet Potato Molasses Candy – Forget pumpkin! This ice cream flavor is inspired by fluffy sweet potato pie with handmade molasses candy brittle pieces mixed in.

· Apple Butter Oatmeal Cookie – Cookies are new sprinkles! We make our own fresh apple butter and mix it into our local, all-natural cream from South Mountain Creamery. Then we crumble in oatmeal cookies as the ice cream freezes for added crunch and spice.

· Chocolate Barley Beer – We steep our cream with roasted barley and pour in melted chocolate as we churn the ice cream, then we finish it with a splash of local dark chocolate Porter beer from Port City Brewing company.

· Pistachio Cannoli – Pistachio ice cream made with ground pistachios, cannoli pieces, mini chocolate chips, and sweet ricotta cheese. This is very decadent. (more…)
