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 in July.”

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 Whittlesey Creek 4-H Club of Bayfield 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.

Says Cedar Crest President, Ken Kohlwey, “We are proud to support this annual contest and partner with the 4-H organization. It’s really exciting each year to see the enthusiasm, creativity and teamwork shown by the kids in coming up with a unique flavor. We look forward to sharing the winning entry with our consumers.”

A panel of ice cream experts chosen by Cedar Crest judged the entries. The company manufactures 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, like Shipwreck, are a result of the contest.
