Faygo Has Its Own Ice Cream, Why Doesn’t Vernors?
Recently, Faygo announced a collaboration with Browndog Barlor & Restaurant in Northville to release a limited series of six Faygo flavored ice creams. Combining Michigan-favorite Faygo into delectable ice creams is so Pure Michigan and a total no-brainer.
If you're interested in trying them out, you can check out the different flavors HERE. Not to mention, we came up with some flavor combinations ourselves if Faygo ever decides to release a possible second series of ice cream. You can read more on that HERE.
With all this talking (and tasting) of Faygo-flavored ice cream, it got me wondering about another epic Pure Michigan combination that I haven't seen so far. This brings me to my question...
Why doesn't Vernors have ice cream?
Is Vernors Ice Cream a Thing?
Vernors has been around for a long time. In fact, it's one of the oldest sodas in the nation, having been served to the public for the first time back in 1866. So it makes perfect sense that it should have its own ice cream.
Of course, you can add some vanilla ice cream to a glass of Vernors and make yourself a Boston Float or Cooler. But I'm talking about an ice cream itself that tastes like Vernors.
Back in 2017, Michigan ice cream brand Hudsonville did a Vernors-inspired ice cream called Comeback Cooler. It was a "French vanilla ice cream swirled with sweet, ginger ale syrup". That definitely sounds good. But again, why doesn't Vernors have its own ice cream? I could definitely get down with some ginger-flavored ice cream, and I'm sure I'm not the only one.
