“The Thrifty Ice Cream brand has been proudly sold in stores and enjoyed by customers for nearly 80 years,” William Renz, the senior vice president of category management and marketing, at Rite Aid said. “Expanding the availability of this iconic brand is something we wanted to do for our customers to ensure that more generations of ice cream lovers can fall in love with this one-of-a-kind ice cream.”

Thrifty Ice Cream is made with real California milk, and many ice cream flavors have been created with the same recipe for 50 years, the company said.

There are currently 23 flavors available in California and up to eight flavors can now be found in Idaho, Oregon and Washington.
