Cedar Crest Ice Cream, Cedarburg, Wisconsin, and the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation have teamed up once again to present the “Cedar Crest Ice Cream 4-H Flavor Contest” for Wisconsin 4-H clubs. More than 1600 clubs are eligible to create and submit a flavor ‘recipe’ with the top clubs named as finalists, and the top flavor produced for summer 2019.
According to Brenda Scheider, Director of the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation, the contest is a great opportunity for 4-H youth to work together to develop and name their flavor. “The most exciting part of the contest is the winning flavor will be available through Cedar Crest beginning next June.”
The annual contest has already yielded popular flavors including Deep Woods, created by the Badger Boosters 4-H Club, West Bend and Deep Space, developed by the Baraboo Valley 4-H Club. The Whittlesey Creek 4-H Club of Bayfied created the 2017 winning entry named Superior Shores, which is vanilla ice cream with chocolate rocks and a wave of blueberry and raspberry fruit swirl.
The winning flavors are introduced during June Dairy Month and available throughout the summer at ice cream parlors that serve Cedar Crest Ice Cream.
A panel of ice cream experts chosen by Cedar Crest judges the entries. The company manufacturers more than 80 flavors of ice cream, along with frozen custard, gelato and sherbet at its Manitowoc, Wisconsin, plant, and distributes products in five states. Many of the flavors now produced by Cedar Crest, including Shipwreck, are a result of the contest.
More information and the entry form are available at www.cedarcresticecream.com. Entries are due by October 1, 2018. The winner will be announced in December 2018.
