How would you explain the state of Michigan to someone if they’d never been? Maybe you’ve never been, so let me do my best. . .
After lifting my hand into the customary “mitten” hand map, I would then begin to gush about the many beautiful lakes that surround and pepper the state. My eyes might close as I internally remember the unique smell of pure nature found all along the upper peninsula route. My lips might crack a smirk as I brag about the hoping revival of Detroit and draw to mind the hardworking people that have made us who we are. As a few moments pass, you may tire of my ability to endlessly name all of the things I love about my home state of Michigan, however, there is one thing that cannot be ignored. Michigan (and all of its glory) needs to be experienced!
Experience the Best of Michigan with Hudsonville Ice Cream
Anyone who’s ever stepped foot in the great mitten state could probably name off their own long list of local Michigan favorites without skipping a single beat. And I will stand here and bet that the majority of those lists of local favorites would at least include some sort of food.
It’s true! Michigan has some of the BEST artisan food; handcrafted by local bakers, farmers, and chocolatiers. And because of this, it came as no surprise that Hudsonville Ice Cream decided to embrace this local talent with yet another quest to create a Michigan featuring fan-favorite collection.
The First of Three Top Flavors Revealed – but Disappearing Quick!
After accepting suggestions on which Michigan artisan ingredients should make it into the brand new collection, Hudsonville has finally released the very first of the top three winning flavors. True to Michigan spirit, the first small batch flavor is titled Bowerman’s Blueberry Donut!
To be honest, I’m not sure this one came as much of a surprise to me. I mean, have you ever visited one of Michigans’ many orchards or tasted one of its freshly baked, small-batch donuts? If you have, then you know how the flavor can’t be beat! And here I am, doing a happy dance because this first ice cream flavor is everything you’d dream it to be. Of course, we taste-tested it just to be sure. . . 🙂
Can You Find Bowerman’s Blueberry Donut Hudsonville Ice Cream?
Falling in love with the new Hudsonville Ice Cream Michigan Artisan Collection is easy – it’s finding it that’s the hard part! That’s because these new flavors are only available at scattered scoop shops across the state. But don’t worry, I can help you attempt to track it down with a list of ice cream parlors that have received the new flavor. Although, beware, just because they received it doesn’t mean they still have it. Better call ahead – unless you’re up for a super fun road trip across the state!
