Mountain Blackberry Revel
A delicious blend of mountain blackberries from the Pacific Northwest made into a rich, fruity syrup and then swirled into our world famous vanilla ice cream.
One of the longest-running Umpqua Ice Cream flavors, Mountain Blackberry Revel has been the August Flavor of the Month since we started the Flavor of the Month campaign in 1960! It’s the only Flavor of the Month that has never changed.
Oregon’s warm summers and cool springs are perfect for growing the Pacific Northwest blackberry, which was introduced as a crop in the late 19th century. This sweet and tart fruit, which is popular for desserts, jams, seedless jelly, and even wine, is naturally high in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber. Also, the seeds contain oil rich in omega-3 and -6 fats. But did you know that the blackberry is not technically a “fruit”? It’s actually an aggregate fruit, composed of small drupelets.
