Superman Ice Cream

Superman style ice cream in a cone

Superman ice cream is an ice cream that comes as a swirl of three colors: blue, red, and yellow. The name of the ice cream comes from the colors of the comic book superhero Superman, though it is not licensed through DC Comics. This flavor is believed to have originated in the Michigan-based ice cream shop, Stroh's,[1] although the exact origin remains elusive. The flavor has been spotted in other Midwest locales, such as Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream Company in Madison, Wisconsin.

Thus the exact combination varies from location to location, typically with vanilla, blue moon, and some other variety of ice cream included. The Stroh's Ice Cream version has blue moon, red pop, and lemon ice creams.,[2] while other versions such as those by the Meijer store brand and the Hudsonville Creamery & Ice Cream Company versions of Superman ice cream are a mixture of vanilla, blue moon, and black cherry ice creams.

Scooper's Ice Cream Treats in Stratford, Ontario, Canada sells a similar blue, red, and yellow variety but calls it "Super Hero" ice cream, possibly to avoid trademark infringement.

Popular culture references

The flavor is mentioned in Joe Meno's 2004 novel Hairstyles of the Damned and in the 2010-07-19 edition of Frazz.
