Blue Bunny
Since 1913, the colossally creative artisans at Wells' Dairy, Inc.—the largest family-owned and managed dairy processor in the United States—have been hard at work putting all things chunky, chewy, rich and gooey into their ice cream.

BLUE BUNNY® is made in Le Mars, Iowa: The Ice Cream Capital of the World. More ice cream is made in Le Mars than any other place on the planet!

Visitors to Le Mars are always welcome at The Ice Cream Capital of the World Visitor Center . There, you'll learn all about the history of ice cream, Wells' Dairy and BLUE BUNNY®; experience fascinating interactive exhibits; and get a glimpse at how America's favorite treat is made.

In 1866 as America recovered from the Civil War, William A. Breyer of Philadelphia hand-cranked his first gallon of ice cream. It was a special ice cream consisting of rich cream, pure cane sugar, fresh fruits, nuts, and other natural flavors – some of the very same ingredients used today. He sold it to his neighbors with the promise that his ice cream was made the old-fashioned way. Word spread quickly, and Breyers® Ice Cream was soon declared Philadelphia’s best.

By 1918, Breyers® Ice Cream Company was producing more than a million gallons of ice cream a year and shipping it to New York City and Staten Island, New York; Newark, New Jersey; and Washington, D.C. In 1926, Breyers® Ice Cream Company became a division of the National Dairy Products Corporation (NDPC), a growing organization of well-known brands. In 1969, NDPC then became the Kraftco Corporation and, before long, Breyers® Ice Cream became a favorite throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states. In 1970, it was introduced in Georgia, Florida, and other areas of the eastern U.S. In 1976, Breyers’ parent company became Kraft, Inc., and in 1984, Breyers® All Natural Ice Cream became available west of the Mississippi River for the first time.

Good Humor
Since 1920, the Good Humor® family of products has captured the hearts of American consumers with unique treats reminiscent of the good things in life. The first to "put a stick in ice cream," Good Humor® is synonymous with family fun.

In 1930, a New York businessman and investor by the name of M.J. Meehan acquired the national rights to the company by buying 75 percent of the shares. The Meehan family owned the company until 1961 when it was sold to Unilever’s U.S. subsidiary, the Thomas J. Lipton Company.

Unilever’s Lipton Foods unit continued to manufacture and market Good Humor® products for the next 12 years. In 1976, when the company's direct-selling business was disbanded in favor of grocery stores and free-standing freezer cabinets, the trucks were parked for the last time. Some of the trucks were purchased by ice cream distributors while others were sold to private individuals.

In 1989, Unilever purchased Gold Bond Ice Cream, located in Green Bay, Wis., and grouped its U.S. ice cream and frozen novelty businesses under the name Gold Bond-Good Humor Ice Cream. With its acquisition of Breyers® Ice Cream in 1993, the company name was changed to Good Humor-Breyers® Ice Cream.

The Popsicle® brand is an American Classic! Beloved by the young and young at heart, Popsicle® pops come in a variety of flavors, colors, and textures everyone can enjoy. In fact, the Popsicle® family includes more than 30 creative variations on the original Popsicle® product.

The Popsicle® ice pop was accidentally invented in 1905 by 11-year-old Frank Epperson. Epperson left a mixture of powdered soda and water and a stirring stick in a cup on his porch. That night San Francisco experienced record low temperatures, and Epperson awoke the next morning to find a frozen pop that would eventually become a favorite American treat.
