We told you all about our adventures in Michigan last month, where we developed original flavors for our favorite Private Selection Brand Ice cream.

To represent my state of Idaho- I highlighted our state-fruit in my Crumb Topped Huckleberry Pie Ice Cream!

Sara's Huckleberry Ice Cream
Kate paid homage to the comforting flavors of the South in her Banana Pudding with Salted Caramel Ice Cream.

Kate's Banana Ice Cream

They’re both amazing, and one of them could actually go through the process of product development and end up in a grocery store freezer near you!   But only the flavor with the most votes wins.  We participated with a fantastic group of food writers and there are lots of amazing flavors to choose from.

Now we need YOU to vote on which one you’d like to see end up in the grocery store!  Vote for your favorite flavor and you’ll get a coupon to try out Private Selection right now (no sponsorship here- we LOVE Private Selection Ice Cream.  No joke.)

You can vote once per day for the next week, and each time you vote you can come back to this blog post and leave a comment.  All you have to do is tell us you voted- and each time you’ll get another entry in this giveaway.  Next week we’ll draw 2 random numbers and each of those people will win a $50 gift card good at an Kroger store.  Keep in mind, that’s any store in the Kroger family, so that includes not only Kroger, but Ralph’s, QFC, Dillon’s, Fred Meyer, Smith’s and Fry’s.  That’s a nice bag of groceries!

So Click Here to vote for a flavor and then come back and leave a comment each day that you vote!

    I would have to vote for the banana pudding with salted caramel. Caramel is one of my favorite flavors ever, and being from the south myself banana pudding is a must have. The other looked good, but I have never eaten a huckleberry so I can’t say if I would like it or not.

  87. 87
    Linda Franks says:

    Whoa, does that Crumb-topped Huckleberry Pie look delicious! I lived in Idaho for a whole 5 years and everyone went huckleberry picking. To me, the only huckleberry I had ever heard of was Huckleberry Hound! I had some pie made from huckleberries once and it was wonderful.
