Phillies fans have not had the start to the season that they wanted. A handful of unfortunate events capped by the recent loss of Rhys Hoskins for the season with an ACL tear has made for a tough Spring Training.

However, there is a shining light after all. Turkey Hill teased that they will be bringing back their iconic ‘Graham Slam’ ice cream. The Pennsylvania based dairy company posted an implication of the flavors return on their social media right around lunchtime on Monday. 

Let’s take a walk down memory lane in remembrance of our favorite ice cream flavor….

  • Tweet Heard 'round the Delaware Valley

    In June of 2017, 97.5 The Fanatic’s Pat Egan took to Twitter to discuss the lack of the flavor at his local Acme, to which Turkey Hill took the chance to respond. Turkey Hill shattered the dreams of ice cream lovers around the area by canceling the Graham Slam flavor, due to a “lack of sales”. Brutal. 

  • Gone, Gallon, Gone

    Although the flavor is discontinued for retail sale, the flavor’s information can still be found on the company’s website. The flavor is still available, but only as a scoop shop flavor.  

    Fans in the area were devastated by the loss of this graham cracker delicacy. In fact, fans created a petition to bring back the delicious flavor to grocery store shelves back in 2021.  

  • Keeping The Vibe Alive

    After the loss of the flavor on shelves in the area, some ice cream shops even attempted to create their own versions of the flavor. 

    Some have even gone as far as to sell the old ice cream containers on websites such as Ebay. Although it’s empty, you can have a piece of history for $2.95. Call that peak dedication. 

  • About to be Verified

    Most recently, someone took to Twitter creating the account @GrahamSlam2023. The only mission of this account? To give the people not only what they want, but what they deserve. 


  • The Time Is Now

    The ice cream flavor is a soft spot in our city’s history. It represents more than just those with a sweet tooth. It represents hot summer days at the ballpark. Tt united families from Delco to Bucksco and everywhere in between. This flavor isn’t just some ice cream you buy and eat, it’s a way of life. It brought joy to Philadelphia, and most importantly, the return of this frozen treat could bring hope for another World Series run for our Phillies.  

    In a city that has been left heartbroken time after time by our sports teams this year, this is the glimmer of hope this city needs to move forward. 

    Beware, if this is some form of trickery by the company, Turkey Hill should expect some major backlash from Phillies fans everywhere.
