Cedar Crest calls for new flavor from state 4-H clubs

Cedar Crest Ice Cream, of Cedarburg, 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 top flavor produced for summer 2021.

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 July,” said Scheider.

The annual contest has already yielded popular flavors, including Deep Woods, created by the Badger Boosters 4-H Club, of West Bend; and Wisconsin Campfire S’mores, created by the Springbrook 4-H Club, of New Richmond. This year’s winning flavor was Road Trip Wisconsin, created by the Trail Blazers 4-H Club of Holmen, in La Crosse County.

A panel of ice cream experts chosen by Cedar Crest, judges the entries. The company manufactures more than 80 flavors of ice cream, along with frozen custard, sherbet and sorbet, at its Manitowoc plant, and distributes products in five states. Many of the flavors now produced by Cedar Crest, including Wisconsin Campfire S’mores and Big Muddy, are a result of the contest.

More information and the entry form are available at cedarcresticecream. com. Entries are due by Nov. 13. The winner will be announced in December.
