CLEMENTINE’S NAUGHTY & NICE ICE CREAM ANNOUNCES FESTIVE HOLIDAY FLAVOR COLLECTIONS

St. Louis-based microcreamery, Clementine’s Naughty & Nice Ice Cream, announces today holiday ice cream collections with twelve ice creams (see full list below), complete with flavors to celebrate the Christmas and Hanukkah holidays. In the true spirit of the season to give back, Clementine’s also collaborated with Bravo star and St. Louis native, Andy Cohen, to create a holiday flavor, Peppermint Andy, to benefit non-profit organization DOORWAYS St. Louis. The seasonal ice creams feature festive flavors of the season with new ice creams releasing the first three Fridays in December. Clementine’s holiday flavors are available for nationwide shipping here in 4, 6, and 12-pint mix-and-match packs or in-person at Clementine’s six St. Louis-based scoop shops.

 

“Ice cream brings people together. During the holiday season where we see friends and family, we wanted to offer some fun flavors, inspired by some of my favorite classic, comforting holiday treats and dishes,” says Tamara Keefe, Founder and Flavor Temptress for Clementine’s Naughty & Nice Ice Cream. “We are also honored to partner with Andy Cohen and DOORWAYS again this year on Peppermint Andy, a flavor inspired by his favorite flavor combination: peppermint and dark chocolate. Last holiday season, the flavor raised $12,498 for the organization. It’s a wonderful way to celebrate the holiday season with a fantastic ice cream that will also benefit a great organization.” DOORWAYS is a non-profit chosen by Andy that provides housing services for people living with HIV/AIDs.

 

From vegan specialty ice creams to naughty (boozy) ice creams reminiscent of revelry, Clementine’s keeps the holiday spirit alive throughout the season with new festive flavors released through Friday, December 16. Detailed flavor descriptions and release dates, see below:
