LANSING, Mich. — With Pure Michigan Caramel Apple ice cream becoming a new household favorite, Hudsonville Ice Cream and Pure Michigan are asking fans to submit their ideas for Pure Michigan’s next official ice cream flavor.
The contest for the next great Michigan-inspired ice cream flavor kicks off Wednesday and will help promote the bounty of food and agricultural products available to Michigan visitors and residents alike.
The Pure Michigan ice cream contest runs through May 22. The winning flavor will be selected by Hudsonville Ice Cream and be announced on June 21, the first day of summer.
The flavor will go into production over the summer for distribution beginning this fall and winter.
