HOLLAND, MI – Hudsonville Ice Cream has unveiled the first Michigan Artisan Collection flavor.

The family-owned, Holland-based creamery introduced Bowerman’s Blueberry Donut on Monday, July 23. The small batch flavor pairs Hudsonville Ice Cream’s traditional vanilla ice cream with a Michigan blueberry swirl and chunks of blueberry donut straight from Bowerman Blueberries in Holland.

The flavor fits with the series’ goal of creating ice cream representative of the best parts of Michigan, with ingredients sourced from local artisans. Michigan is one of the nation’s leading blueberry producers, with 100 million pounds of blueberries grown each year.

“Bowerman’s Blueberry Donut was an immediate favorite in our testing process,” said Morgan Craig, flavor development scientist with Hudsonville Ice Cream.

“Not only did the blueberry donut pieces pop when mixed with our ice cream, but we’re tapping into a flavor strongly associated with Michigan. Bowerman Blueberries has been an amazing partner through this creation process, and we can’t wait for our fans to taste this genuinely good flavor for themselves.”

The Bowerman’s Blueberry Donut flavor will be available on Tuesday, July 24, when Hudsonville Ice Cream hosts a birthday celebration for the City of Detroit. The event will run from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Cadillac Square

Additionally, the Bowerman’s Blueberry Donut flavor will be available in limited quantities at select scoop shops across the state, beginning the week of July 30. Bowerman’s Blueberry Donut by Hudsonville Ice Cream is expected to sell out quickly. A complete listing of shops is below.

The Michigan Artisan Collection will feature three flavors, with the other two flavors set to be announced this year.

“Our family has been growing blueberries in West Michigan since 1954, so we have a long history of delivering local flavors to residents and visitors to the Holland area,” said Kassie Grasmanis of Bowerman Blueberries and granddaughter of the founders.

“We were thrilled when Hudsonville Ice Cream reached out to us for a potential partnership and we are so pleased to see this flavor come to life for people across the state to enjoy.”

Hudsonville has made a habit of creating Michigan themed flavors. All-season favorites include Mackinac Island Fudge and Traverse City Cherry Fudge, as well as a Vernors-infused Detroit-flavor called Comeback Cooler.

I had the pleasure to meet Debra & Carl Chaney, the summer of 2003, before they opened their shop, I had the pleasure to work with the Chaney’s on their recipes and flavorings for their great tasting homemade ice creams.

This is the story as told by Carl Chaney,  “if you are welling to get up early and stay up late you too can enjoy the fruits of your hard work”.

This is a story about an American dream by a hard working family from Bowling Green, KY.

Ample Hills ice cream: price, flavors, review – Business Insider

Business Insider – Kaitlin Hatton

Ample Hills Creamery has become a favorite among New York City-based ice cream aficionados thanks in part to its rich tastes and zany flavors.The local chain was born in Brooklyn in the spring of 2011 to budding entrepreneurs Brian Smith and Jackie Cuscana. The couple began creating ice cream and baked goods from scratch, spending hours a day churning out their original flavors. Ample Hills has grown rapidly, expanding to nine locations in New York City, one in Disney World and now, a new store coming to New Jersey. Smith said he has big plans for the future, including growing the business to be on the level of Starbucks or Ben & Jerry’s. He told Bloomberg that he plans to complete a Series A funding round this fall, and is hoping to raise $8 million. Plans for a massive ice cream factory are also in the works.”We want our brick-and-mortar shops to be community hubs in the way that [Starbucks executive chairman] Howard Schultz transformed the idea of coffee shops into a destination. Where people go to pass the time … we want to do that with ice cream,” he said. I was curious to see if Ample Hills Creamery would live up to the hype, so I visited two locations within New York City.
