Yuengling’s Ice Cream Corp. today (March 1) said it signed a binding Letter of Intent to acquire Revolution Desserts LLC, which owns or licenses the Gelato Fiasco, Sweet Scoops, Art Cream and SoCo Creamery brands.
Gelato Fiasco is a premium gelato product with two stores and is available in more than 600 retail locations. Sweet Scoops, a producer of all-natural frozen yogurts, is sold in Whole Foods and 100 independent stores. Art Cream is an organic artisan ice cream with unique and often unconventional pairings. SoCo Creamery is an all-natural super-premium ice cream, gelato and sorbet distributed from Maryland to Maine.
Price was not disclosed. Yuengling’s Ice Cream was founded by Frank Yuengling in 1920 to help support the family brewery during Prohibition, which lasted from January 1920 to December 1933. It was spun off as a separate company from the brewery in 1935. The company discontinued production in 1985 when no family successor emerged. But in 2014, David Yuengling, Frank’s great grandson, and Robert Bohorad revived the brand.
