Your Best Ice Cream -- Made by Jeni's Splendid!

August 20, 2012

Today we announced our Your Best Ice Cream contest -- it's time to get stirring, mixing, and freezing! And for the contest winner, we have something special planned...

The winning ice cream recipe will inspire a limited production flavor by Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, whose book is available in the FOOD52 Shop! That's right: your ice cream flavor, available to buy from the award-winning folks at Jeni's.

Shop the Story

A couple of quick points: if you'd like to use Jeni's custom base, go for it (we think it's utterly delicious) -- otherwise, they'll adapt the winning recipe at Jeni's HQ. Because of the timeline of production, the ice cream won't be ready to release for a month or three -- but your patience will be worth it.

Bring on the mix-ins, swirls, and custards. We want to see Your Best Ice Cream!

Do we just need to submit the recipe or do We have to bring in the actual ice cream?

Are you just looking for ice cream? Or can we enter sorbet, gelato, and sherbet too? Thanks!
