Milk & Honey Takes Top Honors At 14th Annual Ice Cream Social

Monday, June 11, 2018

The 14th annual Ice Cream Social at the Chattanooga Market was held on Sunday, allowing market-goers the chance to sample and vote for their favorite ice cream flavors. 

 

Five local creameries, including Bruster’s, Clumpie’s, Mayfield, Milk & Honey, and The Ice Cream Show all participated in the annual fundraiser held at the Chattanooga Market to benefit Chambliss Center for Children.

 

After testing 10 different flavors, participants voted for their favorites in two categories, “Best Pure Flavor” and “Best Flavor with Inclusions”.  As always, the competition was tight, however, coming out on top was Milk & Honey in both categories. They received the honors of “Best Pure Flavor” for their Summer Strawberry, and “Best Flavor with Inclusions” for their Peanut Butter Oreo.

 

“The weather was great and the ice cream was delicious,” said Lesley Berryhill, director of Communications for Chambliss Center for Children. “We are so grateful to our dedicated vendors who donate their time and products every year to benefit our agency. Their generosity allows us to put all the money raised from ticket sales directly back in to our programs.”
