FIND NEW FLAVOR: Many of the ice cream flavors produced by Cedar Crest are a result of its 4-H flavor contest.

4-H clubs to create newest Cedar Crest ice cream flavor

Entries are being accepted for the annual contest.

Cedar Crest Ice Cream, Cedarburg, Wis., and the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation have teamed up again to present the Cedar Crest Ice Cream 4-H Flavor Contest for Wisconsin 4-H clubs. More than 1,600 clubs are eligible to create and submit a flavor “recipe,” with the top clubs named as finalists and the winning flavor produced for summer 2020.

According to Brenda Scheider, executive 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,” Scheider says.

The annual contest has already yielded popular flavors including Deep Woods, created by the Badger Boosters 4-H Club of West Bend; and Deep Space, developed by the Baraboo Valley 4-H Club. The Springbrook 4-H Club of New Richmond created the 2018 winning entry named Wisconsin Campfire S’mores, which is vanilla ice cream with a toasted marshmallow swirl, Reese’s cups, chocolate chunks and graham cracker crumbles, available now.

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, Wis., plant, and distributes products in five states. Many of the flavors now produced by Cedar Crest, including Shipwreck and Elephant Tracks, are a result of the 4-H contest.

More information and the entry form are available at Entries are due by Oct. 1. The winner will be announced in December.
