The flavor was added to Hudsonville Ice Cream's family of Michigan-themed ice creams to represent the city of Detroit after it was selected as a contest winner in June. The limited-edition flavor will be produced in a small, seasonal batch and will be available for a limited time.
"Comeback Cooler recreates a classic Detroit float favorite and we look forward to sharing this Flavor of Detroit with our fans," said CJ Ellens, director of sales & marketing at Hudsonville Ice Cream.

In June, after receiving more than 2,500 contest entries for a Detroit-specific flavor, the Holland, Mich., firm chose thd one from Tracy Heureux of Plymouth.
