Three years after introducing its ice cream line, Kleinpeter Farms Dairy has kicked it up a notch — and no doubt a significant number of fat grams — with Crème de la Kleinpeter, which hits Lafayette grocery store shelves July 19.
“We are launching this line because our customers have been asking us for a really rich line, a super premium that incorporates exquisite ingredients from around the world, yet includes some of our Louisiana dessert favorites such as tiramisu and crème brûlée,” says Jeff Kleinpeter, president of Kleinpeter Farms Dairy.
Crème de la Kleinpeter hits Baton Rouge stores July 5, New Orleans July 12, and Lafayette and Lake Charles July 19. The nine flavors will be available in pint sizes.
Kleinpeter says the company’s "ice cream chef,” Don Gerald, had been experimenting with higher butterfat versions of some existing Kleinpeter flavors, and asked for permission to play with some ingredients that friends and customers of the dairy had been requesting be included. Kleinpter decided to turn Gerald loose. "The resulting flavors are a combination of customer requests and staff favorites, almost like a private label,” Kleinpeter says.
The flavors include Tahitian Vanilla with Raspberry Swirl, Caramel Pecan Fudge, Strawberry Cheesecake with Chocolate Truffle, Blanche et Blanche, Crème Brule-A, Black Forest Cherry Chocolate, Toffee Mocha, Coconut Almond Crunch, and Tiramisu d’Italiano.
In January 2008 Kleinpeter opened the state's only commercial ice cream plant with flavors featuring fresh Louisiana ingredients, and has added new flavors every few months. Increases in product offerings, service areas, and sales volume have led to facilities additions and expansions. Most recently, at a cost of $900,000, the ice cream production facility in Baton Rouge was expanded and a new warehouse added. Also, a new distribution facility is under construction on Pont des Mouton Road in Lafayette.
