Snoqualmie Ice Cream, Snohomish, Wash., launched what is said to be the first and only line of super-premium organic craft ice cream.
Snoqualmie Organic Ice Cream is 100% USDA-organic certified and made with the best possible ingredients, many of which are sourced from the Pacific Northwest, including grass-fed milk and cream, eggs, berries and honey.
Snoqualmie Organic is a French-style frozen custard (ice cream) that is vat-pasteurized, slow cooked and crafted in small batches with extra cream and very little air.
Flavors include Vanilla, Chocolate (made with Barry Callebaut organic Belgian cocoa), Mint Chip, Mixed Berry (a Northwest-inspired flavor made with organic Madagascar vanilla, organic honey from a Northwest supplier and a custom-made blend of organic Northwest berries), Cookies n’ Cream, Lavender (made with organic dried lavender buds from Provence, France) and Salty Caramel (made with a custom organic caramel using sea salt from Jacobsen Salt Co.).
“We’ve been developing our organic line for over a year,” says Barry Bettinger, owner and founder. “We’ve worked very hard to source the perfect ingredients, develop the best recipes and obtain all the official certifications to create a top-tier extension of our brand. We’re seeing a shift in the way people eat and choose their foods, especially in the dairy world, and we want to ensure our customers that we care about these choices just as much as they do. Snoqualmie Organic Ice Cream truly aligns with the way we (as individuals and as a company) think, operate and live, and we’re so excited and proud to finally share it with the world.”
Snoqualmie Organic ice cream is available at most grocery stores in the Northwest, including Fred Meyer, QFC, Safeway, Albertsons, Haggen and PCC Natural Markets for a suggested retail price of $6.99.
