PITTSBURGH, May 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Klavon's Ice Cream Parlor, a Pittsburgh-based family owned and operated ice cream parlor that extends back to its initial founding as a neighborhood apothecary and ice cream shop in 1923, announced in partnership with the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, they will be releasing a Dippy the Dinosaur ice cream flavor, named after the very first dinosaur discovered and placed in Carnegie's Museum.
In order to get the local community involved and contribute to what the Dippy the Dinosaur flavor will actually be, Klavon's Ice Cream Parlor is having the Carnegie Museum circulate a survey, staring on May 22nd, to their network and social media profiles for identifying the customer suggested favorite option for the new dinosaur-themed ice cream.
"As a locally owned business for close to 100 years, we are passionate about working with the Pittsburgh community and allowing residents to become part of the ice cream process here at Klavon's," said Jacob Hanchar, co-owner of Klavon's Ice Cream Parlor. "The Carnegie Museum of Natural History is such an important part of this city's history. We are incredibly excited to be holding a contest that honors Andrew Carnegie and his wild expedition to bring home Dippy the Dinosaur from Wyoming over 100 years ago."
The ingredient suggestion winner will be announced on the first day of summer June 21st and will receive a free tub of ice cream to take home, as well as the honor of having their flavor become a permanent staple at the Klavon's Ice Cream Parlor shop which will be unveiled and for sale starting on the 4th of July.
To honor the partnership with the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Klavon's is providing a 20% discount to all Museum members when they display their membership card at the ice cream parlor.
"The timing couldn't be better," said Eric Dorfman, director of Carnegie Museum of Natural History. "We recently launched our new brand inspired by our visitors which prominently features Dippy. All in all, this will be one 'sweet' competition."
