Two Local Duluth Companies, Duluth Pack and Bridgeman’s Restaurant, Launch New Mega Malt Flavor For The 2023 Season

Due to the success of the partnership mega malt in 2022, the two Minnesota-based companies are introducing a new mega malt flavor for the 2023 spring and summer seasons.

Duluth Pack, the American Made manufacturer, and brand known for high-quality handcrafted canvas and leather bags, is joining forces yet again with another local icon in the Duluth, MN region, Bridgeman’s Restaurant. The two classic Duluth companies partnered together in 2022 and now again in 2023. The companies have joined forces this year to launch a new flavor, introducing the Happy Trail Mega Malt. This season’s limited-time sweet treat combines ingredients with a flavor profile similar to the tasty trail mix snacks you would bring on an outdoor adventure or hiking trip. The Happy Trails Mega Malt will available on Friday, April 7th for a limited time this spring and summer at the Bridgeman’s Restaurant in Duluth. 

The ice cream based dessert, the Happy Trails Mega Malt is a chocolate malt swirled with M&M’s, topped with decadent whipped cream, a special trail mix gourmet popcorn pop, a souvenir green tree, and additional M&M’s. Combining the ingredients of sweet, salty, and savory in one. This limited-time summer-edition mega malt is completed with a Duluth Pack logo sticker on the Bridgeman’s mega malt mason jar. The mega malts from Bridgeman’s Restaurant also come with a reusable straw and a lid, so that you can take your mega malt jar home to create your own malts or other delicious drinks in this souvenir cup. 

“We are incredibly enthusiastic about partnering with our friends at Bridgeman’s Duluth again this year. It has been a great way to connect with our community on many different levels,” stated Grant DeMars, Web and Marketing Manager at Duluth Pack.

Emily Broman from Bridgeman’s stated, “We are so thrilled to partner with our friends at Duluth Pack again this season! Both Bridgeman’s and Duluth Pack have been a part of the Duluth community for over 100 years – and we feel honored to work with such a well-known and well-loved local business. When coming up with the flavor profile of this mega malt, we were trying to think of fun snacks you’d have out on the trail!” 

The Bridgeman’s Restaurant and Duluth Pack have similar roots as they have been longstanding staples in the Duluth community. Both companies also pride themselves on quality, whether that be the ingredients utilized by Bridgeman’s or the guaranteed for life hardware that you can find on all Duluth Pack manufactured products. 

Happy Adventuring, friends!
