"The best part about Front Porch is the truly distinctive flavors,” said Michael Werran, production manager at Mooresville Ice Cream Company and Front Porch. “These four new flavors fit perfectly with everything that is Front Porch and the South – plus they’re flavors everyone can enjoy!”
The pint-sized ice cream is also now available in the frozen section of two new retailers, Kroger and Walmart. This expands Front Porch’s distribution from 1,500 BI-LO, Food City, Food Lion, Harris Teeter, Ingles, Lowes Foods and Piggly Wiggly stores in Alabama, Washington DC, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia to now almost 2,000 retailers. The ice cream can now be found westward into Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Virginia.
The new flavor, Happily Pineapply Upside Down Cake, available to the public was a recipe inspired by Carolyn Malone, a Johnson & Wales University alumna. Malone submitted her “Memaw’s Pineapple Upside Down Cake” recipe in an exclusive contest Front Porch hosted with the university’s Charlotte, NC campus in the spring of 2012.
“The experience of working with Front Porch to create Happily Pineapply Upside Down Cake was a dream come true,” Malone said. “It’s very exciting to see the pint I inspired on the grocery store shelf!”
Front Porch and JWU will host a second student flavor competition again this spring. The Second Annual Front Porch New Flavor Competition 2013 launched in March and the final judging day will be on April 26.
