Blue Moon is a colorful treat featuring the sweet and refreshing flavor of blue raspberry. Whether enjoyed by the scoop, cone, or straight out of the pint, this flavor promises a delicious experience just in time for the Spring season. Order ahead so you have it in your freezer ready for the occasion or come by our stores to satisfy your moon cravings!

“As the seasons begin to change, so too do our taste buds, and what better way to embrace this than with some new flavors,” said Jennifer Schuler, CEO for Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream. “Enjoying a scoop of Blue Moon is like savoring a solar eclipse – both remind us to slow down and appreciate the moment. At Handel’s, we aim to create sweet experiences that celebrate life’s little pleasures and look forward to commemorating this special event with our guests.”

Handel’s will also be offering its featured monthly flavors to accompany the celestial Blue Moon. Throughout April, guests can savor Monkey Business and Coconut Caramel Delight at all of Handel’s locations. These flavors will be available in April while supplies last.

According to NOAA, the April 8 total solar eclipse will last just under five minutes, and the areas that will have the greatest solar obscuration are Northern Mexico, Texas to New England, and the North Atlantic. To learn more about the eclipse, visit the link here.
