Big Muddy, developed by the Friendly Valley 4-H Club, was chosen as the winner of the Cedar Crest Ice Cream 4-H Flavor Contest. Selected as the winner from the field of five finalists, the Big Muddy will be available statewide in time to celebrate June Dairy Month.
The winning flavor features dark chocolate flavored ice cream with a caramel swirl and brownie pieces. This flavor will be available in 3 gallon tubs and on sale throughout the summer at ice cream parlors that serve Cedar Crest Ice Cream. It is also available for sale at 4-H food stands. To order, call 800.877.8341.
“We are excited to continue this partnership with Cedar Crest, which allows 4-H clubs across the state to work together and put into practice the goals and mission of 4-H,” says Jim Reid, president of the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation. “Congratulations to the Friendly Valley 4-H Club for their teamwork experimenting with different flavors to create the winning flavor.”
This is the third year of the partnership. The winning flavor in the 2013 contest was CranRaspberry Cheesecake created by the Sunnyside Climbers 4-H Club in Plover, Wis. Last year Dykesville Dolphins 4-H Club crafted the centennial flavor Udder Delight.
Entries in this year’s contest were evaluated by a panel of judges chosen by Cedar Crest’s staff. Cedar Crest currently manufacturers over 80 flavors of ice cream at its Manitowoc facility, and distributes product in five states.
