  • 1 Can Pineapple Tidbits
  • 1 Cup Shaved Coconut

Ice cream in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day, created to honor Ireland’s patron saint, is also a fun and festive celebration of Irish culture and food! While there is no historical proof as to whether or not St. Patrick ever enjoyed a dish of ice cream, you will most certainly find ice cream on the Emerald Isle.

Emerald Necklace Ice Cream ConeWith that in mind, we picked out a few fun flavors in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day!

Emerald Necklace:  While there’s no place on Earth quite like the Emerald Isle, the same can be said about our local natural gem … Cleveland Metroparks! Pierre’s Emerald Necklace Premium Ice Cream pays tribute to our hometown park system and celebrates the great outdoors!

Mint Chocolate Chip:  Ireland is a cool place to experience … kind of like a bowl of Pierre’s Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.

Lime Sherbet:  Like snakes, lime groves are not to be found in Ireland. However, like Irish culture, Pierre’s Lime Pure Fruit Sherbet and ¡Hola Fruta! Margarita Pure Fruit Sherbet are bold and full of flavor.

Rainbow Sherbet: Legend says that at the end of a rainbow is a leprechaun’s pot of gold. Perhaps that’s true, but a pot of Pierre’s Rainbow Sherbet would be just as nice as far as we’re concerned.

Let’s Go Nuts About Buckeyes!

Nuts About BuckeyesThe college football season is about to come to an end. A championship is on the line and everyone is Nuts About Buckeyes! C’mon … it’s hard not to be a fan of delicious peanut butter swirled into Pierre’s famous Classic Vanilla Ice Cream with chocolate-covered peanut butter buckeye candies.

Enjoy a couple of scoops at your watch party while cheering on the Buckeyes during Monday night’s big game with family and friends, or curled up on the couch wrapped in your lucky blanket.

Below are a few winning plays we drew up for our roster of winning recipes. You can find other party ideas here on our blog.

Nuts About Buckeye Sundaes

Sundaes are as fun to make as they are to eat. Let your imagination run as wild as a ball carrier staring down a field of open daylight. Gather your favorite chocolate sauce or warm up a jar of hot fudge. Top your creation with salted cocktail peanuts, whipped cream and cherries (one is never enough)!

Ice Cream SandwichesIce Cream Sandwiches

Small scoops of ice cream between pairs of peanut butter or chocolate chip cookies are fast and easy to make, so you don’t miss a play!

Buckeye Ice Cream Pie

Ice cream pies are easy to make and delicious. You don’t need to have the talents of a champion pastry chef and, like sundaes, they can be as simple or creative as you like.

Start with a container of Nuts About Buckeyes and a pre-made chocolate cookie pie crust. Let the ice cream soften at room temperature for about 5-10 minutes. Don’t soften it too long, or else it will crystallize when it is refrozen. Spread the softened ice cream into the pie shell, cover with foil and return it to the freezer until ready to serve.

For fun, decorate the pie with your favorite ice cream sauces and toppings, like crumbled peanut butter cups or your favorite buckeye candies.

5 Ways to Celebrate the New Year with Pierre’s!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAn auld acquaintance may be forgotten, but we’ll always remember ice cream on New Year’s Eve! Whether you scoop it or sip it, nothing makes a party like a frozen treat. Check out five ways to celebrate New Year’s with ice cream, sorbet and more.

New Year’s Eve Sundae Bar

Keep those restless kids – and the rest of your guests – occupied with a build-your-own sundae bar. Line up a sampling of ice cream flavors – choose among your favorites! Set bowls of your favorite toppings next to plastic cups and spoons, and, voila – it’s self-service sundaes for all.

Don’t forget: Pierre’s also offers lactose free vanilla and chocolate ice cream and a variety of no sugar added ice cream flavors in case you have any guests with special dietary considerations.

Punch Up Your Punch

Of course, the secret to any perfectly planned party is a pleasant bowl of punch. Brew up a batch of Pierre’s Sherbet Santa Punch, a lip-smacking concoction of pineapple, lime and ginger.

Midnight Sorbet Toast

Add a scoop of Sorbet to a glass of champagne for a fresh twist on your standard New Year’s toast. Strawberry and Peach pair remarkably well with bubbly, but Mango and Passion Fruit are delightful, flute-worthy flavors, too.
