ice-creamNorth Carolina 4-H is excited to announce the winning flavor in our North Carolina 4-H Centennial Ice Cream Cone test!! With over 62 applicants, and over 2,300 votes, it came down to the top three counties. Last week we held the final taste test….judges included Larry Stogner, news anchor from WTVD-11, Andrea Weigl, food editor from the News and Observer, Dean Johnny Wynne, Dr. Jon Ort and other supporters representing all facets of 4-H.


The winning flavor is *drumroll please*   4-H Campfire Delight, submitted by Tyrrell County!!  The flavor is one that Creamery director Gary Cartwright found very original…never before has the Creamery tried a graham cracker flavored base, and it does not disappoint! Tyrrell County selected a graham cracker flavored ice cream with chocolate chunks and a marshmallow swirl, and it was an overwhelming winner!


Check out this article about the cone-test in this week’s NC State Bulletin.



Thanks to everyone who participated and congratulations to Tyrrell County!
