June 16, 2019, Sunday - Izzy's People's Flavor Awards: An Ice Cream Tasting Event 2019

Time: 1:00pm - 4:30pm

Location: Izzy's, 1100 2nd Street S

2019 People’s Flavor Awards Tasting Event

The People’s Flavor Awards is an Izzy’s tradition held every-other summer where we take submissions from our customers for ice cream flavors. Of those submissions, we choose four finalists in five categories: Kids, Chocolate, Mix-Ins, Fruit and Specialties. And new this year: six Non-Dairy flavor finalists for a total of 26 flavors to taste. We make the ice cream and customers vote at the contest. Ballots are counted and winners are announced in each category, including BEST IN SHOW in both Dairy and Non-Dairy entries!

With this ticket you will get to taste and vote on 26 unique, customer-invented ice cream flavors. Vote for the best in each of the six categories:

  • Kids (created by kids, ages 13 and younger)
  • Chocolate (Flavors with chocolate bases)
  • Mix-Ins (Flavors with chunky mix-ins)
  • Fruit (Flavors with fruit base and/or fruit mix-ins)
  • Specialties (Flavors with a variety of ingredients)
  • Non-Dairy: (Flavors made with only non-dairy ingredients made in our non-dairy coconut base)

Bring your family, friends, dads and Taste and Vote on the next best Izzy's flavor! There will be two Best In Show winners this year: Best In Show Dairy and Best in Show Non-Dairy.

*Please come at your scheduled Taste Time. This helps shorten your waiting line! However, all tickets will be valid for the entire event 1:00-4:30pm.

*Kids 4 and younger are free, but any kid wanting to vote will need to purchase a Kid Ticket.

*This event is a public event and will be filmed and photographed!
