I am a Hudsonville Ice Cream brand ambassador. All opinions expressed belong to me.
The moment so many of you have been waiting for has arrived! Hudsonville Ice Cream is officially introducing the Flavor of Detroit contest winner, Comeback Cooler, to Michiganders this month in select store locations.
Comeback Cooler is a new twist on the traditional Boston Cooler favorite, with a Vernors-inspired ginger ale taste mixed into their award-winning French Vanilla ice cream.
The Comeback Cooler flavor was added to Hudsonville Ice Cream’s family of Michigan-themed ice creams to represent the city of Detroit as part of the company’s Flavor of Detroit Contest held earlier this year.
The flavor is considered a Limited Edition, produced in a small seasonal batch and only
available for a limited time. So if you’d like to try it, go grab a gallon soon!
This ice cream is truly unique! I find it refreshing and different, and I enjoyed a scoop as a treat in the evening with the family. The flavor is mild — with a lot of French vanilla coming through, so I wouldn’t mind even more ginger flavor. With that said, I LOVE Vernors. If Vernors or ginger flavoring isn’t your thing, I would skip this flavor. My kids gobbled it up, but it definitely wasn’t their favorite.
Regardless, I know I will definitely purchase this occasionally as a fun treat.
ABOUT THE FLAVOR OF DETROIT CONTEST
As part of the Flavor of Detroit contest, Hudsonville Ice Cream judged entries based on
flavor potential, creativity of the flavor name and the explanation of inspiration for the flavor, and
chose Comeback Cooler from more than 2,500 entries. Tracy Heureux of Plymouth submitted
the winner, citing the flavor as something she associated strongly with Detroit, and something
she craved when living in Philadelphia.
Hudsonville Ice Cream is the best-selling Michigan-made ice cream statewide, offering
more than 50 flavors of ice cream including three flavors introduced in spring 2017: Bananas
Foster, Peanut Butter Cheesecake and Peanut Butter Pretzel. Hudsonville Ice Cream is made
with locally sourced ingredients and crafted by a team of artisans who believe in creating
genuine goodness and premium ice cream for all to enjoy.
