Purity Egg Nog

Well, it finally got cold! We knew it would happen, didn’t we? Everywhere you look newspapers are flying, trees are shedding their last leaves, and couples are bundled up against the biting wind that can only mean one thing – winter is finally on our doorstep. ‘Tis the season for many things (snow, fancy lights, gift-giving lobsters…), but nothing says “winter” like a frosty glass of eggnog, and we here at Provisions have the best stuff around! The Purity Ice Cream Company has been making sweet dairy treats in Ithaca, NY since 1936, and their crowning achievement is their eggnog – no artificial colors, added flavors, syrups, or anything else to muck up this seasonal delight. Purity also has some incredible eggnog recipes on their website (Almond Eggnog French Toast, anyone?), and you can stop by the Greene Grape Wine Store for some spirits to spike up your holiday. We’ve got the nog on our shelves until New Years, so do yourself a favor and grab a jug or two!

Phin & Phebes Brings Fresh Ice Cream To Brooklyn

Greene Grape Provisions is proud to feature Phin & Phebes, a brand new ice cream company sprouted from right here in Brooklyn. While they first honed their craft making their frozen fare as a hobby, they soon moved on to a feature spot at the Hester Street Fair in 2010, and were inspired to take their tasty treats to the streets. Check out their Coconut Key Lime, Ginger Cookie Snap, Vanilla Cinnamon and Vietnamese Iced Coffee flavors.

All their flavors start out in their home kitchen before making their way into formal production. Their super premium, 14{0886acb4f5be58b49bf4e022446f4168c3918f2aad77c1481cecb92c8f2156f3} butterfat ice cream is made with a low overrun, meaning there’s more delicious, creamy ice cream and less air. Their dairy comes from Quality Dairy Farms, a cooperative of eight family-run farms in Lewis and Jefferson Counties in New York not far from where the ice cream is made and hand-packed in small batches. When you see a pint of their ice cream in our case it’s very likely that the dairy in the ice cream was milked within the past 6-14 days – it doesn’t get much fresher than that! So take a chance on these new guys, we love their ice cream and expect to see them around for quite a while.

Mid-Autumn Treats

It seems like Mother Nature hasn’t quite made up her mind – even as we pass bare trees and crunch over leafy sidewalks, we’re still leaving our scarves at home on these warm days and mild evenings. Don’t let it fool you, though, because the holiday season is just around the bend, and we’ve got everything you need to fill your home with that seasonal magic right here at Provisions!
We just received our first delivery of the year from the Purity Ice Cream Company in beautiful Ithaca, NY. Their premium eggnog is the richest and most decadent we’ve come across, and it’s here in our dairy case all through New Years. We’ve also got new frozen items that are sure to leave you with visions of sugar plums – Adirondack’s classic Peppermint Stick ice cream will wash you with the chill of winter while Jeni’s warms you right back up with their Boozy Eggnog and Sweet Potato w/ Toasted Marshmallow ice creams flavors. And just wait to see the brand new Brooklyn-based ice cream company we’re debuting just before Thanksgiving – can you say Gingersnap Cookie?
We’re sure to be sampling bits of our awesome array of seasonal products throughout the coming weeks, and we have lots more new items coming in over the next month (Prickly Pear Salsa, anyone?), so keep your eyes peeled and share in the festivities with all of us at the Greene Grape!

With their staunch dedication to environmental responsibility, they use only the freshest ingredients in their ice cream, and even go out of their way to use sustainable building materials and techniques in their shops. With that, only one question remains – how is their ice cream?

Made from local, organic milk with no artificial colors or flavors, Blue Marble creates rich versions of classic flavors at an affordable price. In stock at Provisions, we’ve got three standard flavors no frozen confectionery connoisseur should be without.

LaLoo’s Goat Milk Ice Cream

Join us today, Saturday, March 26 from 2-4pm to try samples of LaLoo’s goat milk ice cream.

Delicious and creamy, Laloo’s is made with 100% goat’s milk and combines a custard-like-old-fashioned-ice-cream-parlor-taste with superior digestibility. Goat’s milk has more protein and calcium and a natural structure with alkaline properties that allow lactose sensitive people to indulge, too! Smooth, rich and dense, Laloo’s rivals has less than half the fat of gelato.

Bubbie’s Mochi Cherry Blossom Ice Cream

From 2-3pm Saturday we’ll sample Bubbie’s Mochi Ice Cream in their Sakura (Cherry Blossom) flavor. Mochi is a Japanese treat of rice paste wrapped around ice cream and we think the Sakura flavor is a great way to tide yourself over until the cherry blossoms come out in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

The beginning of cherry blossom season at the BBG is April 2 and their annual Cherry Blossom Festival is held the weekend of April 30. For more information click here.
