Ice cream delivery, anyone? How about a craft beer float?
This actually exists in Fayetteville now, thanks to Damgoode Pies partnership with Little Rock-based ice cream makers, Loblolly Creamery.
The companies this week announced a partnership to serve the Arkansas-made ice cream at all Damgoode restaurants in the form of scoops, pints, and floats. The floats, according to a press release issued this week, will be available with sodas as well as with Damgoode Brews. Sounds crazy, huh?
Flavors available include Double Vanilla, Little Rock-y Road, Salted Caramel, and Strawberry Pineapple Tea Sorbet.
The ice cream would also be available via Damgoode’s regular delivery service.
The restaurant will be celebrating the news with a raffle this weekend. Anyone who purchases ice cream April 7-9 will be entered to win a prize package including four pints of Loblolly Ice Cream, an 18″ pizza from Damgoode, and a special edition t-shirt.
We included the full press release below, because in typical Damgoode fashion, it’s pretty entertaining.
For a bit more information about the raffle this weekend, check out the Facebook page for the event.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Little Rock, AR – April 5 2017
On Friday, April 7, 2017 all Damgoode Pies locations will begin serving Loblolly Ice Cream by the scoop, pint, and float. Pints will be available for carry-out and delivery. Floats will feature both sodas and Damgoode Brews, Damgoode Pies’ in-house brand of craft beer.
“WE’RE REALLY HONORED TO PARTNER WITH LOBLOLLY,” screamed Jeff Trine, founder of Damgoode Pies, “AND DAMGOODE HAS MADE AN EXCLUSIVE DEAL WITH LOBLOLLY TO DELIVER THEIR ICE CREAM! WHICH I KNOW OUR CUSTOMERS WILL LOVE!” When asked why he was screaming, Trine bellowed that it is “CUSTOMARY TO SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM!”
To celebrate the new partnership, Damgoode Pies and Loblolly Creamery are having a raffle. Customers who buy a scoop, pint, or float from any Damgoode Pies location on April 7, 8 or 9 will be entered to win. On Monday, April 10, each of Damgoode’s four locations will draw a winner. Each of the four winners will receive 4 pints of Loblolly Ice Cream, an 18” Signature Pie from Damgoode Pies, and a special edition Damgoode Loblolly t-shirt.
Damgoode will be serving four of the many available Loblolly flavors: Double Vanilla, Little Rock-y Road, Salted Caramel, and Strawberry Pineapple Tea Sorbet. Damgoode plans to rotate flavors occasionally to give customers a chance to sample the variety Loblolly has to offer.
Damgoode Pies is the eleven-time winner (and current champion) of the Arkansas Times Readers Poll award for Best Pizza. Loblolly Creamery is the three-time winner (and current champion) of the Arkansas Times Poll for Best Ice Cream/Cool Treat.
