If you have ever read a Harry Potter book or seen one of the films, chances are you are desperate to try out a few of the wizarding world's favorite foods. Treacle tart, pumpkin pasties, chocolate frogs and jelly slugs are just a few of the magical confections that make our mouths water with every reread and re-watch of the series. But the biggest "please make this a real thing" HP treat that has created the ultimate in taste bud desperation? Butterbeer, which is why I'm personally so excited for Butterbeer ice cream.
That frothy, foamy, mainstay of The Three Broomsticks has inspired obsession in readers all over the world who are desperate to try the Golden Trio's favorite pub drink. People have been creating their own recipes for as long as the series has existed, and of course, if you've been to Harry Potter World in Florida or California, you've been one of the lucky ones to throw back a mug filled with the super-sweet liquid gold. But now people all over the country can enjoy a new, summery iteration of every wizard's favorite drink thanks to Yuengling and their launch of Butterbeer flavored ice cream, just in time for spring.
So, here are the deets: the pint is made with half buttercream ice cream, half butterscotch ice cream, with a twist of butterscotch swirl (um, yes, please.) It can be found in most supermarkets and retails for about $3.99. But the best part of all is that this is not one of those limited-edition, run there before you miss it, fall in love and never be able to eat it again releases. Butterbeer will become a regular part of Yuengling’s Ice Cream 20-flavor lineup. All we have to say to that is, "Accio ice cream scoop!"
