  • DISHING IT OUT: The rollout of Yarnell's today included introduction of "Scoop," the company's new marketing mascot.
The new owners of Yarnell's ice cream factory in Searcy kicked off the rebirth of the company with a Capitol news conference today and Searcy boy Mike Beebe, an occasional Capitol visitor, was there to dish up a ceremonial scoop. The Yarnell family venture went under last year, leaving the state on the hook for past loans, but Schulze and Burch Biscuit Co. of Chicago bought the assets out of bankruptcy to resume production.

All was sweet and creamy today.

The flavors, as I indicated, include two vanillas — homemade and real, but not Angel Food. Sigh. The initial flavor list, from Kat Robinson:

Butter Pecan, Cookies and Cream, Death by Chocolate, Homemade Chocolate, Homemade Vanilla, Homemade Strawberry, Real Vanilla, Rocky Road and Ozark Black Walnut. Yarnell's will also offer frozen yogurt in five flavors — Blueberries & Cream, Peaches & Cream, Strawberry, Chocolate and Vanilla — and Guilt Free in Butter Pecan, Chocolate and Vanilla. Plus, the chocolate and vanilla Ice Cream Sandwiches are coming back, too! They'll be available at Wal-Mart next week and within the next month at Kroger, Harp's and many independent Arkansas grocers.

Here's an FAQ list from Yarnell's.
