Strickland's Ice Cream Bought "MANY Pounds" of Williams-Sonoma Peppermint Bark; Making Ice Cream With It This Sunday

Strickland's Ice Cream, without a doubt the ice cream shop that we most like to write about on SAFII and winner of many of our Best Of lists, sent out an e-mail yesterday with this announcement:

"We have bought MANY pounds of Williams Sonoma bark for our peppermint bark ice cream! We are making this ice cream twice this month, and if we run out of bark, we run out of peppermint bark ice cream."

As how some of you on Facebook and Twitter might express joy and gleeful anticipation: "Squee!"

Strickland's is using a little trick microecon professors like to call "scarcity", when news of a limited supply will generate even more demand.

You'd think I'd be tired of the flavor since I've hoarded almost a pantry-full of those addictive Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark bags to last me till spring. Nope. I missed the maple bacon flavor they had a few months ago, but heck if I'm going to miss this!

Upcoming Events

The flavor will debut at Stricklands this Sunday, December 16th.
