First dairy-free Perry's line hits shelves with Oats Cream

If you avoid dairy, for medical reasons or personal ones, you no longer have to avoid Perry's Ice Cream.

The Akron company has rolled out a line of oat milk-based "frozen desserts," made with oat milk from Elmhurst 1925 in Elma.

The Oats Cream line comes in pint-size packages and seven flavors: Apple Strudel, Blueberry Pancake, Coconut Caramel, Oat Latte, Peanut Butter Coffee Cake, Peanut Butter & Cookies and Snickerdoodle. Each flavor is vegan and lactose-free.

Robert Denning, Perry's president and CEO, said it developed the line in response to consumer demand.

It's available at Wegmans, Tops Markets, Lexington Co-Op and online at Apple Strudel and Blueberry Pancake Oats Cream will be available at scoop shops.

Elmhurst 1925 has seen rapid growth with its plant-based nut and grain milks since 2017, when the Schwartz family closed its Elmhurst Dairy cow farm and turned to plant products.
