Private Brand Ice Cream Dreams

Three Supervalu associates were named winners of the Stone Ridge Creamery Name Your Dream Flavor Sweepstakes, creating three new flavors of the Private Brand ice cream: twisted pretzel, red velvet cake, and “Italian Kiss.”

As winners of the Stone Ridge Creamery Name Your Dream Flavor Sweepstakes, the three associates will receive free ice cream for a year, a $500 gift card, and their dream flavor will be added to the Stone Ridge Creamery lineup with corresponding caricatures of each associate. The winners: Tom Lindberg, Amy Youngblood, and Joe Agrusa—were selected from a pool of 1,500 Supervalu associate submissions.

“To see your dream flavor become a reality—how cool is that?” Stacy Bergmann, Stone Ridge Creamery Private Brand manager, said in a statement. “Supervalu associates’ interest in and support for our new Stone Ridge Creamery brand helped us exceed our sales goals for the brand last year. The sweepstakes was our way of recognizing and thanking our associates for the contributions they made to the brand’s growth.”
