ORRVILLE, OHIO — Ruggles ice cream, which Smith Dairy Products Co. produces, is now available with reduced fat and calories.
Ruggles churned premium light ice cream has 50% less fat and one-third fewer calories than the regular ice cream line. Smith Dairy is beginning the line with eight flavors: vanilla, butter pecan, cookies n cream, strawberry, cherry vanilla, French silk, peanut butter chocolate chunk and caramel fudge. The company has plans for more flavors as well.
"Today’s savvy consumers are health-conscious and interested in eating light, but they still want their desserts and treats," said Penny Baker, director of marketing at Smith Dairy. "Our new Ruggles churned line gives them the best of both worlds."
The new ice cream line will be available in 1.75-quart containers.
