Ice cream lovers are showing off their patriotism this Fourth of July with scoops of locally produced ice cream.
Flag-colored ice cream
Hudsonville Ice Cream in Holland has introduced its latest limited-edition flavor, Summer Celebration, just in time for the holiday.
Summer Celebration combines swirls of creamy vanilla ice cream, raspberry sherbet and blueberry sherbet.
“This one certainly pays tribute to the red, white and blue,” said Caryn Beatty, a Hudsonville Ice Cream spokesperson. “Summer Celebration is the perfect treat to scoop up on those lazy summer days spent with family and friends, when it just seems like everything deserves to be celebrated.”
Hudsonville Ice Cream is also offering three other limited-edition ice creams this season.
The ice cream maker has introduced its Grand Hotel Pecan Ball flavor.
Honoring the signature pecan ball dessert at the Grand Hotel in Mackinac Island, the flavor is made with vanilla ice cream, genuine Grand Hotel fudge and premium pecan pieces.
Ballpark favorite, Tiger Traxx returns this summer.
Tiger Traxx consists of creamy vanilla ice cream, chocolate-covered pretzel baseballs and a thick fudge swirl. Tiger Traxx holds the honor of being the official ice cream of the Detroit Tigers.
Strawberry Shortcake replicates the summer dessert favorite, offering a ribbon of strawberries, swirled into vanilla ice cream, with bite-size pieces of pound cake.
The limited-edition flavors can be found in grocery stores and ice cream shops all summer long.
