LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Graeter's is bringing back an ice cream flavor in celebration of a popular hippo.
Graeter's will begin selling Chunky Chunky Hippo on January 14 in honor of Fiona's first birthday. Fiona was born at the Cincinnati Zoo on January 24, 2017, about six weeks before her due date. Her story quickly captured hearts all over.
Chunky Chunky Hippo is a toffee ice cream with salted roasted peanuts and milk chocolate caramel truffles. Graeter's first offered it in Fiona's honor last July. Part of the proceeds went toward Fiona's care.
According to our news partners at the Lexington Herald-Leader, you will be able to buy Chunky Chunky Hippo at the Graeter's stores on Euclid and in the Hamburg area, as well as online. It will go on sale at Kroger, Whole Foods and Fresh Markets in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky markets on January 17.
The Cincinnati Zoo is holding a first birthday celebration for Fiona on January 20. It will include a birthday card to sign, cake, cookies and Graeter's ice cream, a question and answer session with Fiona's caregivers and an autograph session with authors who have written books about her.
