Lifestyle | Velvet Ice Cream Ohio State Fair Flavor Contest!

Hi friends!

I'm so excited to share this contest with you! Velvet Ice Cream is giving all ice cream lovers a chance to create a limited edition Ohio State Fair ice cream flavor! They're holding a flavor contest on their Facebook page now through April 12th.

Each summer, Velvet launches a new flavor inspired by the favorite tastes of the Ohio State Fair.  Some past state fair flavors have included Blueberry Sweet Corn, Banana Cream Pie, Maple Bacon and Elephant Ear. Elephant Ear was so popular it became part of Velvet Ice Cream’s year-round flavor collection and is now available in grocery stores in Velvet’s signature 56-ounce cartons! 

This year, Velvet Ice Cream is inviting fans to submit ideas for their own delicious new ice cream flavors for the 2017 Ohio State Fair on their Facebook page. To enter, go to their Facebook page and find the contest picture post. There is a link to a submission form on this post. Click the link and submit your flavor! Company leaders will then choose their favorite idea from the comments and develop the flavor for the Ohio State Fair, which runs from July 26th to August 6th at the Ohio Expo Center. The contest gives Velvet Ice Cream fans a chance to be a part of the magic! President of Velvet Ice Cream, Luconda Danger said "Our special State Fair flavors have been so incredibly popular in the past, we wanted to invite our fans to be a part of the fun for this year."

Now, for a little bit about the ice cream! Velvet Ice Cream was founded in 1914 by Joseph Dager and 2017 marks 103 years of business for them! Since the startup, four generations of Dagers have since run the company. The company is located in Utica, Ohio on 23 acres of rolling farmland and it's still family-owned and operated! Velvet produces more than five million gallons of ice cream every year from it's headquarters, which is located on the grounds of Ye Olde Mill. Ye Olde Mill is an ice cream and milling museum and also a restaurant with a playground, picnic area and catch-and-release fish pond! It was named as one of America's 10 Best Ice Cream Factory Tours and they hold an annual Ice Cream Festival which is May 27th - 29th this year! Tours and field trips are open to the public April 1st through October 31st.

More information about Velvet Ice Cream and Ye Olde Mill is available on their website so definitely check it out if you're interested!

What's your dream fair-inspired ice cream flavor?! I can't wait to see what y'all come up with. Head over to their Facebook page to submit your flavor idea!

Love,
