Stewart's Shops Popular Flavor Wins First Prize at World Dairy Expo

According to a post on the Stewart's Shops official website, ice cream flavor Peanut Butter Pandemonium has been named the best peanut butter ice cream in the world at the 2022 World Dairy Expo.

The website explains that there were over 1,400 submissions from dairy manufacturers across North America, and of every peanut butter-flavored ice cream that was submitted for judging, Stewart's Shops' rendition has come out on top.

The website also explains the methodology of the judging, as each ice cream submission is rated based on flavor, body and texture, melting quality, appearance and color.

Residents in Upstate New York, as well as parts of Vermont, know full-well that Peanut Butter Pandemonium is a worthy winner of this prize. It is consistently regarded as one of the most popular flavors sold by Stewart's Shops.
