A West Michigan ice cream maker is reinstating one of the most popular small-batch “artisan” flavors it dished out last summer.
Holland-based Hudsonville Ice Cream is reintroducing the Bowerman’s Blueberry Donut flavor as part of this summer’s Michigan Artisan Collection.
The flavor pairs Hudsonville’s traditional vanilla ice cream with a Michigan blueberry swirl and chunks of blueberry doughnut from Bowerman Blueberries.
The flavor is being reintroduced to celebrate National Ice Cream Month and National Blueberry Month, as Michigan is one of the nation’s leading blueberry growers, producing 100 million pounds of blueberries each year, according to Hudsonville Ice Cream.
“Last year, this flavor sold out in some scoop shops in a matter of days, and knowing how popular it was, we’re proud to work closely with Bowerman Blueberries again to share a sweet taste of summer in a small-batch flavor,” said Rachel Hamden, marketing operations manager, Hudsonville Ice Cream.
