Elfie Tuesday: All About Our Elf-Inspired Ice Cream

With Elf The Musical taking the Arkansas Repertory Theatre stage, starting Wednesday, Dec. 3, we are penning a new short series called “Elfie Tuesday” every Tuesday throughout its run.

Next up in our series is highlighting something sweet: our special Elf-inspired ice cream from  Loblolly Creamery!

For the first time ever, we partnered with Little Rock’s popular ice cream shop to create a special treat for patrons: sweet cream ice cream with peppermint chunks and homemade mallows. After Loblolly created this special concoction, the next thing that was in order was naming it.

This month, we launched an Elf Ice Cream Naming Contest where we asked fans to submit names for the ice cream that incorporated The Rep name and showcased the flavor.

The response was overwhelming. We received more than 200 entries into the contest and as you can imagine, it was pretty difficult to narrow it down, but we did. Here are the top 5 that were chosen:

  1. Rep-permint Chunk; Winner!
  2. Mintmallow Cheer
  3. Buddy’s REPpermint Surprise
  4. Buddy’s Swirly Whirly Mint Mallow Dream
  5. Mallow, Mints and REPeat

After days of voting and a tense battle between No. 1 and No. 4, Mary Ann Seibert’s “Rep-permint Chunk” was crowned the coveted winner of the contest. She won a pint of the special flavor with her name on the carton and a pair of tickets to see Elf!

The special ice cream will be sold at Loblolly Creamery, located inside the Green Corner Store, 1423 Main St., Suite D, Little Rock, and at The Rep the month of December.

Don’t miss your chance to try this one-of-a-kind sweet treat celebrating our holiday production and get your tickets to Elf online or by calling the Box Office at (501) 378-0405. Great seats are available after the Christmas holiday.
