The Pennsylvania creamery just announced the release of its newest flavor-- a butter cream and butterscotch cream base stwisted with a butterscotch swirl. The new treat joins the ice cream maker's line of 18 available flavors. 


“We are always looking for ways to inspire our fans and spark creativity. Whether it's our flavor names and descriptions or the recipes themselves—we’re in the business of having fun,” said David Yuengling, president of Yuengling’s Ice Cream in a statement.  

“We hope we made J.K. Rowling proud with this flavor.”

Featured in J.K Rowling’s bestselling book series, butterbeer is one of the most popular beverages in the wizarding world and can be served hot or cold a hot or cold. It's been described by the author as tasting “a little bit like less sickly butterscotch.”

The new magical flavor is currently available in pints at supermarkets throughout the country, with quarts coming later this year.
