Will Your Ice Cream Flavor Win Most Innovative in 2016?

Mar 16, 2016

Coffee comeback flavors, new caramel combinations and inspirations from both local and exotic destinations are trending in the ice cream cooler this year, according to Donna Berry, food scientist, editor of Berry on Dairy and presenter at IDFA’s Ice Cream Technology Conference, April 12-13 in Bonita Springs, Fla. These and other innovative flavors may be competing to earn top honors in IDFA’s Innovative Ice Cream Flavor Contest.

How will your newest flavor stack up?

Find out by entering your newest flavor innovations. This popular competition, sponsored by Dairy Foods magazine, offers the opportunity for ice cream makers and flavoring suppliers to showcase their latest ice cream flavors and novelties during the Ice Cream Technology Conference.
