Cast Your Vote for Dairy Goodness Flavor

by | Apr 7, 2017 | Dairy Foods | 0 comments

I can taste it already – malt and ice cream from the Dairy Goodness Bar at the Minnesota State Fair. This once-a-year treat is something I long for; it’s simply not available anywhere else, any other time. Midwest Dairy Association has a special recipe all its own, and when you add the fruit to the top, or indulge in a chocolate or caramel flavor, there’s nothing better.

Except maybe there is! For the third year in a row, you can help pick a Flavor of the Fair, a special malt or sundae available for one year only, chosen by voters from three possibilities.

The first year, you helped us pick Salted Caramel Puff, which was a delicious combination of puffcorn and caramel on top of a delectable vanilla malt or sundae. Last year, it was Call It Breakfast, with latte syrup, doughnut chunks and sprinkles, served on top of a malt or sundae.

This year, the choices are tantalizing and even more imaginative. How about these choices?

Vanilly Dilly

Reserve judgment and bite into the tangy crunch of dill pickle potato chips mixed with smooth, creamy vanilla ice cream. Topped off with everyone’s favorite — a dill pickle – this sweet, savory and oh-so-craveable treat will keep you coming back for more.

Pie ‘n the Sky

Take flight with this nostalgic mix of crunchy, spiced “airplane” cookies and lemon curd, topped with a dark chocolate drizzle. A little sweet, a little tart, this delicious treat will remind you of childhood summers at picnics filled with pies and bright blue skies.

Nacho Average Malt

Taco ‘bout a sweet treat! Hot sauce packs a punch in cool vanilla ice cream, while crunchy tortilla chips and shredded Parmesan cheese complete this Tex-Mex creation. Whether it’s a malt or sundae, it’s sure to be “Nacho Average” treat.

Yum! I don’t know which one to choose and I wish I could try them all. Three official ‘tasters’ did, and you can see what they thought on Midwest Dairy’s Facebook page. But feel free to decide for yourself which one we should serve, and help us pick the winner by voting below, no later than April 17. We’ll announce the winner between now and fair time.

Then, all that’s left for you to do is come see us at the fair!

The poll has closed.
