By Robere Lett | Publisher
It’s finally here! After 2,500+ entries, Hudsonville Ice Cream has selected its newest flavor of artisan crafted ice cream. The flavor is made from Hudsonville Ice Cream’s French Vanilla ice cream and swirled with a sweet, ginger ale ribbon. Named for the town you can’t keep down; we’ve captured the iconic flavor of a Boston Cooler you can serve on a cone. French Vanilla ice cream is richly swirled with a sweet, ginger ale ribbon to form the nostalgic flavor of a Vernors Ginger Ale Float.
HUDSONVILLE ICE CREAM REVEALS FLAVOR OF DETROIT CONTEST WINNER
DETROIT — Hudsonville Ice Cream, a family-owned, Holland, Michigan-based company, has revealed the newest flavor to join its family of Michigan-themed ice creams and represent the city of Detroit. The flavor, called “Comeback Cooler,” is a new twist on the traditional Boston Cooler, with a Vernors-inspired ginger taste. CJ Ellens, director of sales & marketing at Hudsonville Ice Cream, made the announcement on Thursday night at a special reveal party hosted at Rock City Eatery in Detroit.
Contest winner Tracy Heureux of Plymouth submitted the winning flavor, titled Comeback Cooler.
Tracy cited the flavor as something she associated strongly with Detroit, and something she craved when living in Philadelphia. Hudsonville Ice Cream judged entries based on flavor potential, creativity of the flavor name and the explanation of inspiration for the flavor, and chose Comeback Cooler from more than 2,500 entries to the Flavor of Detroit contest.
“Hudsonville Ice Cream was seeking a flavor that would capture the spirit of innovation and re-imagination synonymous with Detroit, and we’d like to congratulate Tracy on creating the winning flavor,” Ellens said. “The new Comeback Cooler flavor takes a traditional flavor that has long been associated with Detroit and adds a modern twist. Our artisan crafters are honing in on a perfect blend of flavors that honors the history of Detroit while acknowledging where the city is headed.”
The Flavor of Detroit winner Comeback Cooler will become a reality, with an expected roll-out in the fall of 2017. Hudsonville Ice Cream will share updates on the creation process on its social media channels.
