We are all, of course, familiar with Cleveland Metroparks, also known as the Emerald Necklace. And I’m sure you are also familiar with another well-known local company, Pierre’s Premium Ice Cream Company. Well, what happens when the two meet? A great new ice cream flavor, of course!
Pierre’s, based out of Cleveland, chose to celebrate and promote the beauty of our regional gem with a unique flavor creation called Emerald Necklace Premium Ice Cream.
Pierre’s Emerald Necklace features mint ice cream, chocolate cream cookies and trails of thick fudge. Emerald Necklace Ice Cream not only tastes delicious, but will benefit Cleveland Metroparks Trails Fund. Cleveland Metroparks Trails Fund supports rehabilitation of the Park District’s extensive trail system, preserving natural resources while maximizing user enjoyment.
“Cleveland Metroparks is excited to partner with Pierre’s Ice Cream Company on a tasty new project. The collaboration of these two local businesses resulted in the launching of a delicious new ice cream flavor honoring Cleveland Metroparks,” said Brian Zimmerman, Cleveland Metroparks CEO. “Not only did Pierre’s find a way to capture the essence of Cleveland Metroparks in a new ice cream flavor, they found a flavorful way to support Cleveland Metoparks Trails Fund.”
On August 26, Cleveland Metroparks and Pierre’s launched the new ice cream flavor creation at the E. 55 St. Marina in Lakefront Reservation. Brian Zimmerman, Cleveland Metroparks CEO, and Shelley Roth, Pierre’s President, revealed the name and flavor of the new Premium Ice Cream, then served samples to the eagerly awaiting public.
Pierre’s has an over 80-year tradition of scooping up smiles with its unique and tasty premium ice creams. “Pierre’s and Cleveland Metroparks share similar traditions with Northeast Ohioans. Both evoke fond memories, celebrations and fun times with family and friends, and we hope Emerlad Necklace will encourage more of those special memories,” explains Pierre’s president, Shelley Roth.
