The Bay Area-based organic ice cream pioneer introduces new flavors including the first-ever organic Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream to its rapidly expanding roster
Three Twins Ice Cream, the Bay Area-based pioneer of inconceivably delicious organic ice cream, introduces a slew of accessible, affordable, bound-to-hit-the-sweet-spot organic offerings for 2014, including three phenomenally delicious new flavors and the company’s first ever Fair Trade Certified organic wafer ice cream sandwiches. The Northern California ice cream maker is especially thrilled to introduce the first ever organic Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream, available nationwide.
Committed to providing a great product at a great price, all Three Twins ice cream pints top out at $4.99 per pint and include a charitable donation to 1% for the Planet and Ice Cream For Acres, the land conservation initiative Three Twins created in 2011. Three Twins is the first and only organic ice cream to offer Fair Trade Certification. By combining USDA-stamped organic ingredients, including milk and cream sourced from family farms within 17 miles of its California factory, the company is reinventing ice cream with fresh, creative flavors without the gummy stabilizers typically found in ice cream. Available in 2014, new Three Twins Ice Cream products include:
Three Twins New Ice Cream Flavors: Clear out your freezer to accommodate the latest exceedingly enticing, tested-to-perfection organic pints in the Three Twins line-up, now boasting 21 packaged flavors. Available in 16oz. pints priced at $4.49 to $4.99 and for select flavors, quarts for $6.99, new flavors include:
- Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough: As the first ever organic cookie dough ice cream, Three Twins introduces a special combo of exponentially delicious proportions – enjoy perfectly plunked chunks of chocolate chip cookie dough amidst a sea of vanilla ice cream. Available March 17.
- Brownie Batter Chunk: A chocolate lover’s dream of smooth ice cream made with black cocoa and pieces of mouth-watering brownie batter chunks. Available March 17.
- Land of Milk and Honey: This scoop shop staple was originally conceived as a Jewish-themed Hanukkah ice cream flavor in honor of Jon Stewart; now Three Twins lovers can indulge in its smooth and creamy magical melding of milk and honey year-round. With a unique giving model, one percent of sales from each pint is donated to the Xerces Society, a nonprofit organization dedicated to researching to understand the status of declining bumble bees and finding solutions. Available now.
- Sergio Romo’s Mexican Chocolate: In September 2013, Three Twins released Sergio Romo’s Mexican Chocolate—a flavor born from a partnership with the renowned San Francisco-based baseball pitcher to highlight the immigration debate. Pints of the new flavor include the tagline “It Only Tastes Illegal”. Hitting a “home run” with consumers, the flavor will have expanded distribution outside of California in 2014.
- Three Twins Fair Trade Certified Vanilla Ice Cream Wafer Sandwich: In 2013, Three Twins debuted the first ever Fair Trade Certified organic ice cream sandwich. Spearheading the movement once again, the latest Three Twins concoction features Madagascar vanilla ice cream sandwiched between rich chocolate wafers made from Fair Trade Certified black cocoa. Available in single packs at $1.99 and 4pk from $5.99 to $6.99. Available Summer 2014.
2014 also marks significant expansion for Three Twins, as the company gears up to open an ice cream factory in Sheboygan, Wisconsin to supplement local operations in Petaluma as well as fulfill increasing demand nationwide. The Sheboygan production facility has six times the capacity of the Petaluma factory.
Founding Twin, Neal Gottlieb started Three Twins Ice Cream in 2005. He was the company’s only employee, with no previous ice cream-making experience. Armed with $70,000 of personal savings and a $25,000 loan from The Bank of Mom and Dad, Gottlieb worked 90 hours a week in a remote storefront in San Rafael, Calif. In 2010, Three Twins opened a 4,200-square-foot ice cream factory in Petaluma and rapidly increased distribution from to 50 to hundreds of locations. It is the largest dedicated organic ice cream factory in the United States. Today, Three Twins also operates five scoop shops in and around San Francisco, and the company currently employs approximately 80 people. With the Sheboygan factory, Three Twins plans to continue expanding and sharing their sweet organic treats with the country.
Today, Three Twins is available in over 2,000 major grocers, natural food and specialty shops, convenience stores and corner markets across the United States, including Whole Foods Market, The Fresh Market and various independent grocers. A selection of restaurants and scoop shops nationwide also carry the brand.
