Season tickets to Twins baseball buried in Kemps ice cream

Kemps in Rochester recently had two season tickets to the Minnesota Twins on hand for the 2010 season, the first in the new stadium.

But they dropped the two tickets for the much-anticipated season into a half gallon of ice cream … on purpose.

It is all part of the Sweet Seats promotion by Kemps and the Twins.


"It is a little like Willy Wonka’s golden ticket," said Racheal Kyllo of Kemp’s.

The ice cream left the plant about a month ago, and no one has found the tickets yet. That means it is sitting in a grocery freezer in Minnesota, Wisconsin or South Dakota.

The tickets are in a container of Kemps Twins Ice Cream. That includes the flavors of:

  • TC’S Fudge Sundae Ice Cream
  • Touch ‘Em All Chocolate Malt Ice Cream
  • Pennant Fever Peanut Butter Ice Cream
  • Graham Slam Ice Cream

A second set of season tickets are also to be given away through an online sweepstakes at The "Sweet Seats!" promotion runs through Sept. 30.
