Cedar Crest Ice Cream flavor winner announced
MADISON - Superior Shores, developed by the Whittlesey Creek 4-H Club of Bayfield County, was chosen as the winner of the 2017 Cedar Crest Ice Cream 4-H Flavor Contest. Selected as the winner from the field of dozens of contestants, Superior Shores will be available statewide in time to celebrate June Dairy Month in 2018.
The winning flavor features vanilla ice cream with chocolate “rocks” and a “wave” of blueberry and raspberry fruit swirl. The club describes its creation: “at the top of Wisconsin, on the shores of Lake Superior, sits Bayfield County. Superior Shores ice cream represents the chill of Lake Superior’s water (vanilla ice cream), the rocky shoreline (chocolate rocks) and waves of blue and Superior water fun (blueberry and raspberry fruit swirl).”
This flavor will be available in three-gallon tubs and on sale throughout the summer at ice cream parlors that serve Cedar Crest Ice Cream. It is also available for sale at summer fair and festival food stands. To order, call 800-877-8341.
As the winning club, Whittlesey Creek 4-H Club will enjoy a Cedar Crest Ice Cream Party and a $300 cash prize as soon as the newest Cedar Crest flavor becomes available. The club is led by Sarah Kreinbring of Bayfield County.
“We are excited to continue this partnership with Cedar Crest, which allows 4-H clubs across the state to work together and put into practice the goals and mission of 4-H,” says Brenda Scheider, Director of the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation. “Congratulations to the Whittlesey Creek 4-H Club for their teamwork experimenting with different flavors to create the winning flavor.”
Entries in this year’s contest were evaluated by a panel of judges chosen by Cedar Crest’s staff. Cedar Crest currently manufactures over 80 flavors of ice cream at its Manitowoc facility, and distributes product in five states.
