Just last week, I caught up with my good friend Steve Christensen and we talked about the retail ice cream industry. He talked about his life journey and business experiences that have helped him prepare for his new job as the ( August 2018) Executive Director of the National Ice Cream Retailers Association (NICRA). Steve talks about the history and people that have made NICRA a wonderful group to be part of.
Steve and I talked about how NICRA is the best resource for new operators just getting started in our industry. Where else can you sit down with a Carl Chaney of Chaney’s Dairy Barn or David Deadman of Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream and talk about how to get started in the ice cream industry. As Steve said, Carl and David are just 2 examples of the wonderfully successful operators in NICRA that are available to help new shop owners.
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.
