Hood, the leading dairy brand in New England, has teamed up with Boston-based brand, Wahlburgers, to celebrate National Ice Cream Month and Ice Cream Sandwich Day this summer. Throughout National Ice Cream Month in July, customers who dine in and purchase a Wahlburgers kids’ meal will receive a free Hood Birthday Cake Mini Ice Cream Sandwich.

Wahlburgers is also creating a special milkshake made with Hood Ice Cream Sandwiches that will be on the menu throughout July. To continue the celebration on National Ice Cream Sandwich Day on August 2, Hood is giving away free Hood Ice Cream Sandwiches to the first 500 customers at each of the participating Wahlburgers locations—Boston, Dorchester, Hingham and Lynnfield.

Hood also unveiled brand new packaging for its Classics retail line of 16 different flavors. The bright, sunny packaging is intended to reflect the joy families feel when enjoying Hood Ice Cream and highlights the premium quality of its ingredients—real milk and cream. Hood has been churning out its farm-fresh, premium Ice Cream for 100 years with favorite flavors like Golden Vanilla, Chocolate and Cookies & Cream.
