This spring, Isaly’s, one of the most trusted names in the dairy and deli business, is making its return to freezer shelves with Isaly’s Ice Cream. The relaunch of the iconic super-premium ice cream will adhere to Isaly’s family tradition and source only high-quality ingredients including fresh cream and the purest flavors—a commitment to quality that customers have long associated with the Isaly’s name.

Isaly’s Ice Cream flavors will include favorites such as Whitehouse Cherry, Maricopa, Vanilla, Chocolate, Mint Chocolate Chip, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

Isaly’s was well-known for their unusual flavors of ice cream with unusual names like Maricopa, a mix of vanilla ice cream and butterscotch swirls; and Whitehouse Cherry, vanilla ice cream with plump maraschino cherries. The Whitehouse Cherry flavor is a nod to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue’s meticulously landscaped cherry blossoms characteristic of Washington, D.C.

Established in 1833 when Swiss cheese maker Christian Isaly and his family emigrated from Switzerland to the U.S., the Isaly’s brand has grown from cheese making and dairy farming, to dairy products and deli meats and ultimately an eponymous line of retail stores. Now under the guidance of food industry veterans Jim and Leslee Conroy, owners of Conroy Foods, Inc and Beano’s Original Deli Condiments, the brand’s deli products have continued to meet steady demand in food chains and independent stores all over Southwest Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, and beyond by remaining passionately committed to preserving Isaly’s tradition and quality.

When investigating a box of Isaly’s memorabilia they received in the purchase of the brand, the Conroys discovered an Isaly’s store operational manual and all of the original ice cream formulas. The rest, as they say, is history—2017 will mark the return of Isaly’s Ice Cream to grocery store shelves.
