June 16th, 2017, 12:00 AM
After receiving more than 2,500 contest entries for a Detroit-specific flavor, Hudsonville Ice Cream on Thursday night officially announced the winner: "Comeback Cooler,' made with Vernors and based on the Boston Cooler.
The Holland, Mich. company honored the winning contestant, Tracy Heureux of Plymouth, at a release party at Rock City Eatery on Woodward in Midtown and posted a video of the presentation on its Facebook page.
The flavor will be available this fall. The company describes it:
"Named for the town you can't keep down; we've captured the iconic flavor of a Boston Cooler you can serve on a cone. French vanilla ice cream is richly swirled with sweet, ginger ale ribbon to form the nostalgic flavor of a Vernors Ginger Ale Float."
Hudsonville also makes Grand Traverse Bay Cherry Fudge, Pure Michigan Winter Campfire, Mackinac Island Fudge and Tiger Traxx.
