A 13-year-old boy from my hometown was picked last week as the winner of the Velvet Ice Cream and Ohio Farm Bureau Create-A-Flavor contest. His flavor is going to be called Honey Caramel Ice Cream. It is going to be a mix of vanilla ice cream layered with sweet Ohio honey and caramel. YUM sounds delicious to me!
He was picked from more than 800 participants and he is only 13 years old. This is a huge step for Ohio Agriculture as well as Alex, the boy who created it. Every carton with this ice cream in it will have a message for Ohio Agriculture, a picture of Alex and a logo for Ohio Farm Bureau.
The reason that Alex uses honey in his recipe is because he wants to increase the need for honey bee production. He wants to increase the production of honey bees so that they can pollinate our crops. I don’t know about you, but when I was 13, I was not this bright!
Such a cool inspirational story for Ohio Agriculture!
