Raider Red ice cream has red velvet ice cream with chocolate rocks, chocolate flakes, marshmallows and almonds. This local exclusive, along with other flavors, will be available at the store and at Texas Tech Athletics sporting events, camps and programs as part of the corporate partnership. The partnership is a 3-year deal under which Howdy Homemade will have marketing and sales rights to all Texas Tech stadiums, according to the release.

“Our Howdy Heroes couldn’t be more delighted to serve ice cream at the stadium and meet all the fans,” said owner Imre Szenttornyay. “People don’t always know how to interact with people with special needs who are, in turn, faced with people who are nervous around them or don’t believe they have what it takes to be successful. . This allows community members to give these heroes a chance and really get to know them and see that they are more alike than they are different.

Lubbock’s Howdy Homemade also plans to offer special edition flavors and Dr Pepper chocolate chips. There will also be a membership program, and for every membership $1 will go towards supporting High Point Village.

“I love ice cream and I’m very happy to work at Howdy Homemade,” said Caleb Gentry. “I’m also a huge Texas Tech fan and can’t wait to meet all the fans. Come on Red Adventurers!
