Lake Effect Artisan Ice Cream announced this year's Christmas flavors on its Facebook page this afternoon.

According to the post, Lake Effect owners Erik Bernardi and Jason Wulf have been planning the new flavors since last year, following the conclusion of that successful sale, which included The Nog, S'mores and Hot Chocolate, Chevre and Figgy Pudding, and Candy Cane Parfait.

The new flavors, which they refer to as "off the hook," include Yule Log, Oakes Riesling Pear and Toasted Macadamia Nut, Christmas Jingle, and Butterbeer.

The flavors come as a $25 holiday four-pack, which must be pre-ordered through Lake Effect's website by Dec. 5. The boxes must be picked up from 4-8 p.m. Dec. 18 or 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Dec. 19 or 20. Each four-pack will also include a wooden nickel good for a free ice cream cone from the scoop shop. Two of the gift boxes will have a "golden ticket" placed inside. Whoever gets the golden tickets will have the opportunity to work with Bernardi and Wulf to create their own custom ice cream flavor.
Flavor #1 –Yule Log
Of course, the first flavor I list is the one that might be over the top. Every year, my family has a traditional Yule Log at Christmas. If you’ve never had one, I always thought of it as kind of a giant Hostess Ho-Ho. This ice cream is our take on that traditional dessert: chocolate cake batter ice cream, swirled with chocolate and blended with chocolate brownies chunks, vanilla pound cake pieces and chocolate flake. Like I said, over the top.
Flavor #2 –Oakes Riesling, Pear and Toasted Macadamia Nut
Wait until you try this one. We created an ice cream built around a Riesling, and the result is one of the best wine ice creams we have ever made. We infused the cream with Leonard Oakes Petillant Naturel Riesling, added a hint of pear and then blended roasted and salted macadamia nuts throughout.
Flavor #3 –Christmas Jingle
We plucked this one right out of our childhood. If your home is anything like ours, we start buying Jingle cookies sometime before Thanksgiving and eat them through the entire holiday season. I can’t tell you all the times I remember playing video games next to a bowl of jingles as a kid. So, to do them justice in an ice cream, we created an ultra rich sweet cream ice cream and packed it with crushed Jingle cookies. Last, we and topped it with colorful decorative sugar crystals just like on the iconic cookie.
Flavor #4 –Butterbeer
We've tested this flavor for months and are glad to announce that we finally finished our final ice cream recipe in time for Christmas. Harry Potter fans rejoice, we have created Butterbeer ice cream. We researched the ingredients and converted them to a creamy and rich Butterbeer flavor. We even top each pint with a vanilla cream “head” just like on a frosty pint. Mischief managed.
