The holiday-inspired Martinelli’s Apple Cider & Cranberry Jam Ice Cream will be available beginning November 4, 2022 through McConnell’s.

Watsonville, Calif., November 4, 2022 – S. Martinelli & Co. has partnered with California-based McConnell’s Fine Ice Creams to launch a Central Coast Thanksgiving celebration. Built on over 200 years of combined California heritage, the holiday-inspired flavor, Apple Cider & Cranberry Jam, features Martinelli’s crisp, sweet, effervescent, delicious Sparkling Apple Cider infused into McConnell’s sweet cream ice cream, backed by ribbons and ribbons of McConnell’s house-made tart cranberry jam to create the ultimate Thanksgiving Day dessert.

“Martinelli’s has been a holiday favorite for generations,” explained Gun Ruder, President & CEO, S. Martinelli & Co. “We wanted to make this season even more memorable by creating a uniquely flavored limited-edition ice cream and California-based McConnell’s was the perfect partner. They’ve successfully captured the essence of Thanksgiving in one scoop of ice cream.”

Martinelli’s and McConnell’s, which have been in business a combined 220+ years, have always been committed to using the highest quality ingredients.

Apple Cider and Cranberry Jam will be sold in pints for $12 through McConnell’s online store beginning November 4, in its California Scoop Shops and at select retailers nationwide while supplies last.
