CEO and owner of South Mountain Creamery, Tony Brusco, said, “We were already working on a chocolate-inspired flavor. Frederick has a sister-city in Germany and so we can take that chocolate flavor and make it German chocolate and all of a sudden things started to come together.”
FREDERICK, Md. (PRWEB) September 13, 2019
Ice cream enthusiasts across Frederick and its surrounding areas have spoken, and after more than a month of public voting, South Mountain Creamery (SMC) is set to announce the name of the official ice cream flavor of The City of Frederick Sept. 13 at The Great Frederick Fair.
The flavor was released by SMC July 30 at its restaurant in Downtown Frederick, Hometown Harvest Kitchen (HHK). It was created with Frederick’s history and heritage in mind and pays tribute to some of its most influential figures. Its name is going to be announced just before the Lonestar and Terri Clark concert, around 7:15 p.m.
“We were really able to create the flavor in a matter of weeks versus months,” CEO and owner of South Mountain Creamery, Tony Brusco, said. “We were already working on a chocolate-inspired flavor. Frederick has a sister-city in Germany and so we can take that chocolate flavor and make it German chocolate and all of a sudden things started to come together.”
Guests were invited to HHK at the end of July to sample the new flavor and submit the name they thought best suited the ice cream. SMC then launched a naming contest that ran through the month of August and up to the day before The Great Frederick Fair.
The flavor names in consideration are:
- Angel Bright Delight (named for 19th century Mayor Jacob Englebrecht)
- Baker Park Dark
- Carroll Creek Crunch
- Downtown Delight
- Key To The City
- Monocacy Mud
- Nuts For Frederick
- Schifferstadt Smash
The name that received the most votes will be announced at the fair, and the flavor will be available for purchase at the SMC ice cream trailer on site. The ice cream will also be available to sample and purchase outside of the fair at Hometown Harvest Kitchen moving forward. The voter who submitted the winning name will be awarded a prize package.
