Yarnell's on the auction block

ON THE BLOCK: Assets of bankrupt Yarnells being sold today.
  • ON THE BLOCK: Assets of bankrupt Yarnell's being sold today.
A bankruptcy trustee is auctioning assets of the failed Yarnell's Ice Cream company in Searcy today. Fox 16 reports sale of the company's recipes for $2,500. The Democrat-Gazette says an initial bid of $1.4 million for everything was deemed too low. The company leaves millions in debt to the state and others.

Speaking of ice cream: I'm happy to report that Edy's peppermint ice cream is a more than acceptable alternative to Yarnell's great seasonal peppermint. I could do without the shocking pink coloring (Yarnell's swirled a tasteful bit of red and green through its peppermint) and I think Edy's might have a touch too much candy crunch, but the silky texture and bright minty taste are great. I went through a half-gallon last week (or whatever is in what we used to call a half-gallon container) just to be sure. I got my Edy's at Hestand's in the Heights.

Still searching for a suitable replacement for Yarnell's Angel Food vanilla. No, the answer is NOT Bluebell. Not even close.
