Bubbies Homemade Ice Cream & Desserts Inc., Aiea, Hawaii, said it is looking to everyday fans to supply flavor ideas for its mochi ice cream line. The winning suggestion will be developed and released in stores across the country next year.
Fans are encouraged to submit their tastiest suggestions — all in the spirit of Bubbies' line of more than 25 varieties. The grand prize winner will receive major bragging rights, a one-year supply of Bubbies mochi ice cream and an exclusive party once his or her flavor launches, the company said.
Five finalists will win a one-month's supply of Bubbies mochi ice cream. Each person who submits a flavor idea will receive a product coupon for $2.00 off the purchase of a retail box of Bubbies mochi ice cream.
To enter the contest, fans must visit www.BubbiesIceCream.com/MakeMyBubbies and submit their most appealing flavor idea. Bubbies will post the finalists on Sept. 7, 2018.
Fans may vote online for their favorite and share the flavor they’d like Bubbies to create by using the hashtag #MakeMyBubbies. Fan voting will take place until midnight Pacific Time on Sept. 21, 2018, Bubbies said. The company will select and announce the winner on Sept. 24, 2018.
"Mochi ice cream is emerging as the latest trendy dessert, and we're always looking to use our premium, natural ingredients to produce exciting flavors," said Rick Schaffer, CEO of Bubbies Ice Cream. "We want our fans to be the center of attention and are excited to embark on this playful journey to create the next progressive flavor together."
