4-H Clubs to Create Newest Cedar Crest Ice Cream Flavor: Entries Now Being Accepted

Cedar Crest Ice Cream, Cedarburg, Wisconsin, 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 1600 clubs are eligible to create and submit a flavor recipe. The top clubs will be named as finalists, and the top flavor produced for summer 2022.

Brenda Scheider, Executive Director of the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation, says 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.” The annual contest has already led to popular flavors including:

  • Deep Woods, created by the Baraboo Valley 4-H Club
  • Wisconsin Campfire S’mores, created by the Springbrook 4-H Club of New Richmond
  • Tractor Tracks, created by the Country Clover 4-H Club in Green Lake County

Cedar Crest chooses a panel of ice cream experts to judge the entries. The company manufacturers more than 80 flavors of ice cream, frozen custard, sherbet and sorbet at its Manitowoc, Wisconsin, plant. They distribute products in five states. Many flavors now produced by Cedar Crest, including Wisconsin Campfire S’mores and Big Muddy, came from the contest.

More information and the entry form are available at https://cedarcresticecream.com/2021-cedar-crest-ice-cream-4-h-flavor-contest/. Entries are due by November 12, 2021. The winner will be announced in December 2021.

Based in Madison, WI, the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation provides essential funding for Wisconsin 4-H program. In partnership with individuals, corporations and foundations, the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation supports more than 150,000 youth who take part in 4-H leadership, development and community-building activities throughout the state.
