Deep Space, developed by the Badger Boosters 4-H Club of Washington County, was chosen as the winner of the Cedar Crest Ice Cream 4-H Flavor Contest.

Selected as the winner from the field of five finalists, Deep Space will be available statewide in time to celebrate June Dairy Month.

The winning flavor features Cedar Crest's Zanzibar Dark Chocolate and Blue Moon, with chocolate chip chunks and swirled with marshmallow cream. This flavor will be available in 3 gallon tubs and on sale throughout the summer at ice cream parlors that serve Cedar Crest Ice Cream.

The cool concoction is also available for sale at 4-H food stands. To order, call 800-877-8341.

As the winning club, the Badger Boosters 4-H Club will enjoy a Cedar Crest Ice Cream Party that will be held on April 7, along with a $300 cash prize. The club is led by Tabetha Wolfe in Washington 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 Jim Reid, president of the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation. "Congratulations to the Badger Boosters 4-H Club for their teamwork experimenting with different flavors to create the winning flavor."

This is the fourth year of the partnership. The winning flavor in the 2015 contest was the Big Muddy created by the Friendly Valley 4-H Club in Waupaca County.

Entries in this year's contest were evaluated by a panel of judges chosen by Cedar Crest's staff. Cedar Crest currently manufacturers over 80 flavors of ice cream at its Manitowoc facility, and distributes product in five states.
