TODAY’S ICE CREAM FACT: In the mid-19th century through the early 20th century, ice cream street vendors would sell ice cream in glass containers called a “penny lick.” As the name implies, the sweet treat would cost just a penny.
In addition to our featured ice cream fact, we also wanted to take some time to introduce everyone to Turkey Hill’s new batch of summer marketing interns with the Q&A below.
NAME: Emily (Lancaster, PA), Jen (Lancaster, PA), Madeline (Willow Street, PA), Jess (York, PA)
FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR: Jess – Phillies Batter Up, Jen – Blitzburgh Crunch, Emily – Mint Chocolate Chip, Madeline – Party Cake
HOW LONG HAVE YOU WORKED AT TURKEY HILL? This is Madeline’s third summer, Jess’s second, and Jen and Emily’s first.
TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF:
Jen: I finished my sophomore year at Elizabethtown College, where I’m majoring in International Business & Spanish. I’m looking forward to studying abroad in Barcelona, Spain in the fall.
Madeline: I graduated from Penn State University in May with a degree in Advertising. I’m very personable and I enjoy this position because I get to meet and interact with a lot of people when I work at events!
Jess: I recently completed my sophomore year at Millersville University where I’m studying Communication, with a focus in Broadcasting. I am huge Philadelphia Eagles fan and hope to one day become a sideline reporter for the NFL.
Emily: I just graduated from Penn Manor High School, and will be attending Elizabethtown College in the fall. I am planning on studying Occupational Therapy, and will also be playing soccer for my school.
WHAT ARE YOUR DUTIES AS MARKETING INTERNS?
We get to travel to many different events throughout the summer and hand out samples of Turkey Hill ice cream. You might catch us at baseball games, state fairs, football training camps, and even local Turkey Hill Minit Markets.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORKING AT TURKEY HILL DURING THE SUMMER?
The free ice cream, of course! We also like traveling to new places and getting a chance to interact with the people who enjoy our products. It’s always funny to see the reactions when our drivers arrive at an event with one of our giant cows!
WHERE CAN WE FIND YOU NEXT?
Our next big events include sampling at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh on the 4th of July and Yankee Stadium on July 9 & 10. If you’re at one of these events, grab some free ice cream, and say hello!
