With the holidays fast approaching, Pennsylvania convenience chain Turkey Hill has added its Peppermint Stick and Egg Nog Premium Ice Cream to its seasonal lineup.
Egg Nog is currently available in most stores with Turkey Hill products, while Peppermint Stick will arrive on Nov. 17.
But the retailer is also hosting a recipe contest, which was announced on its Ice Cream Journal blog, http://icecreamjournal.turkeyhill.com/. Turkey Hill will host The Ultimate Holiday Recipe Contest using the Egg Nog and Peppermint Stick flavors.
Participants’ recipes aren’t limited to drinks or pies – ice cream artists can enter any recipe that uses either new Limited Edition flavor as the main ingredient.
The recipes must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Dec. 1. Pictures of finished products are also welcome but not required. The best recipes will be featured on the Turkey Hill Web site, while recipe authors will also receive a one-month supply of ice cream.
Two top recipes will be picked for each flavor and featured one at a time on the Ice Cream Journal from Dec. 8 to 11. Using a blog poll, visitors will vote on their favorite recipe to choose the winner, who will receive a year’s supply of Turkey Hill ice cream.
Located in Lancaster County, Pa., Turkey Hill Dairy produces the fourth largest-selling premium ice cream brand and the No. 1 refrigerated iced tea brand in the nation. The third-generation, family-run dairy sells its products in a market that extends along the East Coast – from Maine to Georgia and west to the Rocky Mountain States.
“We are always looking for interesting additions and homemade classics that tie special occasions to the taste of our products,” said Turkey Hill President Quintin Frey. “We know that these delicious flavors will enhance the Limited Edition Line and the holidays!”
