Industry News: Graeter’s Cincinnati Zoo-Inspired Flavor Makes Its Anticipated Return

 

 

Summer’s Beloved Chunky Chunky Hippo Craft Ice Cream Returns in Time for Fiona’s Birthday

CINCINNATI, OH (January 2, 2018) – Graeter’s Ice Cream, a 147-year-old, family owned craft ice cream company, has announced the return of its popular Chunky Chunky Hippo Ice Cream. Introduced in the summer of 2017, Chunky Chunky Hippo was released in support of the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden and created much excitement from local ice cream fans. The hippo-inspired flavor will once again bring its sweet toffee ice cream base, salted roasted peanuts and milk chocolate caramel truffles to Cincinnati-area retailers, as well as all of Graeter’s 53 scoop shops in the Midwest. Fans will also be delighted to see Cincinnati native Loren Long’s illustrations on every pint of Chunky Chunky Hippo. This limited edition flavor, like all Graeter’s ice cream, will be produced in small batches and in limited quantity for consumption at scoops shops and at graeters.com beginning January 14th, as well as in grocery stores beginning January 17th.

Graeter’s Chunky Chunky Hippo was initially crafted in celebration of the brand’s home city and one of Cincinnati’s favorite attractions for families, the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden. Shoppers will be able to find it in Graeter’s scoop shops, but also at Kroger, Whole Foods and Fresh Market stores throughout Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, as well as Remke stores, Dorothy Lane Markets, and select Fresh Thyme and Jungle Jim’s. The limited time flavor brings new vibrancy to its much-anticipated return with the pint artwork specially created by Loren Long, author and illustrator of the New York Times bestselling picture books Otis, Otis and the Tornado, Otis and the Puppy, An Otis Christmas and Otis and the Scarecrow. Chunky Chunky Hippo also celebrates Fiona’s first birthday on January 24th, the Cincinnati Zoo’s world-famous addition to its hippo habitat.

“After receiving such overwhelming support for our Chunky Chunky Hippo Ice Cream this summer, we knew we had to reintroduce this flavor. This time, we’re proud to celebrate Fiona’s first birthday, as well as the artwork of talented Cincinnati artist, Loren Long,” shares Chip Graeter, 4th generation owner and Chief of Retail Operations at Graeter’s Ice Cream. “Chunky Chunky Hippo is becoming a true family-favorite. We’re excited to bring it back to all of our scoop shops and grocery partners.”

At Graeter’s scoop shop locations, shoppers will also be able to participate in the celebration of Fiona with a special Fiona collectible card as a gift with purchase of Chunky Chunky Hippo ice cream. A limited number of 8x10 prints, signed by Loren Long, will be for sale. These prints feature Loren’s Hippo illustrations from the pint package. Finally, guests will be offered the opportunity to register to win admissions to the Cincinnati Zoo at Greater Cincinnati and Dayton Graeter’s scoop shops.

Brief

FRUDOZA Light – low-calorie ice cream
FRUDOZA Light is a low-calorie ice cream. Delicacy for those who like sweets and take care of their figure. Developing the design of the package, we focused on ease. On the background there is a gentle watercolor. The color solution echoes with the foodblock, indicating the naturalness of the product. We used fine typeface for "Light" and placed it separately to attract additional attention and identify the product on the shelf. We also put the taste information text block and the fat content next to the logoblock.

About the company

A Rich History In 1866, as America recovered from the Civil War, William A. Breyer of Philadelphia hand-cranked his first gallon of ice cream. It was a special ice cream consisting of rich cream, pure cane sugar, fresh fruits, nuts and other flavors – some of the very same ingredients used today. He sold it to his neighbors with the promise that his ice cream was made with the finest ingredients. Word spread quickly, and Breyers® Ice Cream was soon declared Philadelphia’s best.

Breyer opened his first retail ice cream shop in 1882. Within a short time, he and his family opened four more shops. Breyer continued to make all of the ice cream in the back of one of the shops, cranking it by hand and delivering it with his horse-drawn wagon. Read More

Industry News: GRAETER’S GIVES SPECIAL ICE CREAM FLAVOR IN HOPES TO CURE CANCER

 

 

The Cure Starts Now and Graeter’s team up once again this September for their annual Cones for the Cure campaign. The campaign will take place September 7-17 at participating Cincinnati, Dayton, Cleveland, Chicago, Columbus, Indianapolis, Lexington, Louisville and Pittsburgh Graeter's locations to help spread the word about The Cure Starts Now and its mission to find the homerun cure for cancer by focusing on pediatric brain cancer.

As part of their continued support for The Cure Starts Now, Graeter's will be giving away free scoops of  Elena’s Blueberry Pie ice cream (available at specific locations only) to customers two times during the campaign period. Elena’s Blueberry Pie is a special flavor that was created in honor of 6-year-old Elena Desserich, the inspiration behind The Cure Starts Now.

“In many ways, this is where it started,” says Chip Graeter of Graeter’s. “Ten years ago we joined the charity with the creation of this special flavor and have been committed to the cause ever since. And this time we want to do even more.”

During Cones for the Cure, guests that visit a Graeter’s store during the campaign period have the opportunity to donate a $1 or $5 “Cone for the Cure.” Graeter’s will also offer a $20 savings booklet for every donation of $5 or more to The Cure Starts Now.

The element of surpise is what makes this such a great campaign as the two free ice cream days will randomly be announced with the help of media outlets, bloggers and social media. Be sure to "like" the Cones for the Cure Facebook page at www.facebook.com/conesforthecure for the latest news about the campaign.

In 2016, over 50,000 people participated in the campaign which generated over $136,000 for The Cure Starts Now. To date, over $459,000 has been raised through the campaign to fund homerun cure research. Since 2007, The Cure Starts Now has funded over $7.3 million in groundbreaking research. To learn more about Cones for the Cure or The Cure Starts Now, please visit the website at www.conesforthecure.org.

“It may be the very best way to make a difference while treating yourself to the best ice cream around,” says Graeter.

Packaging Spotlight: Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream

 

Designed by
Natasha Jen
Pentagram

 

 

Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream makes high-quality ice cream with the finest organic ingredients, prepared from scratch in Brooklyn and sold in both classic and vegan varieties via trucks and shops in New York and Los Angeles, as well as packaged pints at grocery stores. Pentagram’s Natasha Jen and team have created a new brand identity system for Van Leeuwen that position it as the ice cream of choice. Stripping off all the visual noise typically seen in ice cream branding, the new identity deploys minimal graphic elements—the logo and a decisive color palette—that reflects the purity of the ingredients, and colorful pints that stand out in stores and look great on social media. Since the introduction of the new packaging in the fall, retail sales have increased 50 percent.

Packaging Spotlight: Häagen-Dazs

 

 

At our annual Investor Day at the New York Stock Exchange today, Häagen-Dazs made a big splash on “Experience Square” on Wall Street, debuting an entirely new brand experience.

The global refresh encompasses everything from packaging to advertising to the shop experience and reflects Häagen-Dazs’ status as a leader in super-premium ice cream and more broadly, an international lifestyle icon.

p1The setup in “Experience Square,” outside the New York Stock Exchange, for our annual Investor Day on July 12, 2017.

The Häagen-Dazs mission? Make every day extraordinary. So why a branding refresh, and why now?

p2

We talked about it with Jennifer Jorgensen, vice president and marketing director of Häagen-Dazs, based in the UK.

Jennifer talked about the brand’s need to stay relevant, especially for today’s millennial consumers who are looking for brands that share their values and that have a deep, relatable story.

“Globally, before we did this brand refresh, consumers universally would say ‘We love Häagen-Dazs, we love the product, but could you please change the packaging?’” says Jennifer. “Consumers wanted to stay with us because we are on trend … …with the simple, real ingredients and high indulgence. But it’s just the branding side of it that they felt didn’t represent them.”

Colorful, worldly, and fun, the Häagen-Dazs brand refresh includes updated packaging designed by more than a dozen up-and-coming artists.

p3

And the design process was wholly original.

Each international artist was asked to illustrate specific Häagen-Dazs recipes using their own abstract styles, descriptive phrases from the brand team, and the physical look and taste of the ice cream ingredients. It was a study in bringing a full flavor experience – the textures, colors and sensations of Mango Raspberry and Macadamia Nut Brittle, for example – to life.

Here’s a sampling of the beautiful new package designs from artists around the world:

Jennifer explained how important ‘Instagrammable’ external aesthetics are to many millennials, and how that has evolved in recent years. (In May, We highlighted an event the brand created in London, in May, that focused on creating an Instagram experience).

In addition, she says perceptions of modern luxury have shifted from material diamonds and glitter to the brand’s more attainable luxury of experience, authenticity and craftsmanship.

These trends translated to the new packaging designs. Jennifer talks about that, and how the team worked with artists to bring to life extraordinary moments with Häagen-Dazs.

I also talked to one of the artists, Bob Sanderson.

Using the process of making flavor experiences two dimensional with descriptive phrases, he built his most complex design, Chocolate Salted Caramel, from words like, “sticky splotches of gooey caramel waiting to be discovered,” and “a tease of enticing salt,” as well as “an all-consuming quicksand of fudgy ganache.”

Print

But he also broke down the physical qualities.

“We looked closely at caramel in many forms, how the shards came out, and for Mango Raspberry, how the juice and skin came out of mangoes,” Sanderson says.

For him, creating the visual flavor was like creating an entire ‘identity language’ which can be sliced and diced to suit different audiences.

Since its debut on the streets of Brooklyn, New York, decades ago, Häagen-Dazs has become a global icon for luxury ice cream. People in 90 countries consume 744 million scoops each year.

z2Häagen-Dazs popularized the super-premium ice cream category in the 1960s.

Check out this video, which illustrates the brand’s journey to global fame:

“We wouldn’t be successful without the history of the brand,” says Olivier Faujour, vice president and president of the General Mills dairy strategic brand unit, which includes the international Häagen-Dazs business. “Häagen-Dazs was created with the powerful vision that food should be simple, natural and made from high-quality ingredients. That brand equity has allowed us to innovate – and stay fresh and contemporary with marketing – while forever paying tribute to our roots.”

Product innovation is the other aspect driving the brand’s continued success outside North America.
