Fair-flavored ice cream?

Velvet Ice Cream is giving ice cream lovers a chance to immerse themselves in the fun of ice cream making this summer. The Utica-based frozen confection manufacturer launched a social media contest designed to let Velvet fans determine the new 2017 Ohio State Fair ice cream flavor.

Through April 12, ice cream lovers can submit ideas for the flavor on Velvet Ice Cream’s Facebook page. Company leaders will choose the best flavor submission and will develop a brand-new ice cream flavor, created especially for the Ohio State Fair, which runs July 26-Aug. 6 at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus.

Each summer, Velvet launches a new flavor inspired by favorite tastes from the Ohio State Fair. Past state fair flavors have included Blueberry Sweet Corn, Banana Cream Pie, Maple Bacon and Elephant Ear, which was so popular it became part of Velvet’s year-round flavor collection and is now available in grocery stores.
