Ample Hills Releases New Election Season Ice Cream Flavors
In July, soft drink company Avery’s Beverages debuted “Hillary Hooch” and “Trump Tonic,” two election season-themed sodas. Now, Brooklyn-based ice cream company Ample Hills is getting in on the electoral festivities with their own presidential candidate ice cream flavors, “Madam President” and “Make America Orange Again.”
“Madam President”—which features an original illustration of Hillary Clinton by Ample Hills Art Director Lauren Kaelin on its packaging—is a chili-infused chocolate ice cream with chunks of chocolate chip cookies made with Hillary Clinton’s own recipe. Ample Hills describes it as “a powerful yet comforting combination of sugar and spice and women’s rights.”
“Make America Orange Again,” meanwhile, is an orange marshmallow creamsicle ice cream (in honor of Donald Trump’s slightly orange hue) with chocolate brownie bricks (“to build a wall,” according to Ample Hills).
Both flavors are available for purchase at Ample Hills locations in Brooklyn, and can be ordered in “Scoop the Vote 4-Packs” on the Ample Hills website. Ample Hills will donate a portion of the proceeds to Michelle Obama’s Let Girls Learn initiative.
“We had so much fun creating our last Presidential candidate flavors,” Ample Hills Creamery co-owner Brian Smith explains. “The differences between the two candidates in this election are even starker and we wanted to highlight this contrast and the importance of voting in general with these two flavors. Years from now we want people to say: ‘The best thing about Trump’s candidacy was the Ample Hills ice cream flavor he inspired.’”
