WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. – At a time of year when indulgence is the rule rather than the exception, TOPS offers you two delicious seasonal ice cream offerings, Peppermint Sleigh Ride and Snickerdoodle Cheesecake Swirl that you don’t have to feel guilty about indulging in! Chock full of every bite of extra goodness you crave but now with cleaner, simpler ingredients, Tops Brand ice creams allow you to savor each spoonful all while staying on Santa’s nice list.

Peppermint Sleigh Ride will delight your guests not only in its presentation, but with its creamy cheesecake flavored ice cream, cinnamon graham cracker swirls, and graham cracker crust pieces. It’s Gluten free with no artificial flavors, no high fructose corn syrup, and no partially hydrogenated oils so it’s indulgence you can feel good about eating!

The same is true for Snickerdoodle Cheesecake Swirl! Your palate will delight in the crisp chocolate peppermint ice cream with white mint fudge swirls and peppermint bark pieces knowing you’re consuming something that has no artificial colors, no artificial flavors, no high fructose corn syrup, no beached flours, and no partially hydrogenated oils. Who wouldn’t love serving healthier ice cream to their holiday guests?

“Crafted right here in Western New York, we’re proud to be able to offer our valued customers a quality product that that they can feel great about serving their families not only during the holiday season, but all year long,” said Mark DeFazio, director of dairy/frozen for Tops Friendly Markets.

Over the past few years, Tops introduced or reformulated thousands of its TOPS Brand items in an effort to provide more delicious, high-quality foods at an affordable price for your family. TOPS Brand Ice cream was just one of the many items that underwent close examination and by eliminating high-fructose corn syrup and artificial colors and flavors, TOPS now offers its customers a cleaner, simpler ingredient option that they can be proud to serve their family.
