    Butter Brickle Ice Cream

     

     

    Butter Brickle is one of our top-selling flavors. It's an old-fashioned ice cream parlor traditional favorite that takes many of our customers down memory lane. Or, for those customers born after the flavor was discontinued (see below) they love it because it's just plain delicious.

     

    Our eCreamery Butter Brickle ice cream features the highest quality toffee butter brickle pieces and we stir them into our creamy gourmet vanilla bean ice cream. Yum!

     

    What is Butter Brickle?

    Butter Brickle was the registered trademark of a toffee ice cream and of a toffee-centered chocolate-covered candy bar. It's similar to a Heath bar.

     

    Butter Brickle History:

    Butter Brickle ice cream was introduced to the world by the Blackstone Hotel in Omaha, Nebraska during the 1920s. The flavoring and the candy bar were produced by the Sioux Falls, South Dakota company Fenn Bros. Ice Cream and Candy Co. Butter Brickle was a favorite flavor but unfortunately the candy company was liquidated in the 1970s, and the trademark and formula were sold to the makers of the Heath bar.

     

    Unfortunately this meant that with no butter brickle candy available, there was no butter brickle ice cream. Fans of the flavor were left with nothing. 

     

    Today the Butter Brickle registered trademark belongs to The Hershey Company, which acquired the Heath assets in 1996.

     

    The flavor stayed popular, and Betty Crocker even made a cake mix and a frosting mix that were butter brickle flavored up until 1990.

     

    Because the flavor was discontinued and hard to get, it has somewhat become a cult classic. Internet forums have popped up about where to buy the elusive flavor. Food recipe blogs have tried recreating their own version of the cake.

     

    But you don't need to do either! You can get good ole fashioned butter brickle ice cream delivered right to your door!

    Butter Brickle Goes to Washington:

    eCreamery's Butter Brickle is such a hit that Nebraska Senator, Deb Fischer featured our pints for a Taste of Omaha lunch for other Senators. The lunch included Omaha classics such a Thunderbird Salad with Thunderbird Dressing, Reuben sandwiches and eCreamery butter brickle ice cream.  You can read the New York Times article HERE.

     

    Pop Culture Bonus Fact: 

    In the Pixar Movie "Up", Russell tells his friend Carl that he and his father would sit on the curb and have an ice cream cone while counting cars. His father would always have a butter brickle cone.

    I love butter brickle ice cream. I've not been able to find it anywhere. When they took the ice cream away, they took part of me with it. Thank you for bringing it back.
