Hudsonville and Pure Michigan Invite Fans to Submit a Winning Ice Cream Flavor

How would you describe the taste of Michigan? Now is your chance to tell us as we kick off our next great flavor contest with Hudsonville Ice Cream!

With your help, we’re teaming up with Hudsonville to create Pure Michigan’s next official ice cream flavor. Last year’s winning pick – Pure Michigan Caramel Apple – has become a new household favorite, and we’re excited to take part in creating the next great Pure Michigan ice cream flavor in 2013.

The contest runs today through May 22, and the winning flavor will be selected by Hudsonville Ice Cream. The winning flavor will be announced on June 21 – the first day of summer – and will go into production over the summer for distribution this fall and winter.

To enter, submit a flavor on Hudsonville Ice Cream’s website at hudsonvilleicecream.com/puremichigan. The grand prize for the winning ice cream flavor includes a two night stay at Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, a year’s supply of Hudsonville ice cream and Pure Michigan merchandise.

Last year more than 3,000 flavor suggestions were submitted to determine the official Pure Michigan ice cream flavor of Michigan state parks.  Flavors ranged from Tahquamenon Falls Root Beer Sundae to Hex Hatch Jubliee, with Pure Michigan Caramel Apple taking the top prize.
