The Finger Lakes has a new flavor.
Ice cream that is.
Through the rest of July, which is also National Ice Cream Month, Cheshire Farms Creamery in Canandaigua is offering Cinn-fully Delicous ice cream, a flavor developed in conjunction with the Finger Lakes Visitors Connection.
Cinn-fully Delicious is made with a buttery ice cream base, a swirl of bourbon butter cinnamon and bits of cinnamon rolls made at the creamery.
“We are so fortunate to have great partnerships with local businesses like Cheshire Farms Creamery who are always looking to come up with innovative products for visitors to our area,” said Valerie Knoblauch, president of Finger Lakes Visitors Connection. “Lisa (Kuras) and Patty (Casella) are shining examples of why tourism in Ontario County is thriving.”
This is the second time the tourism agency and creamery have worked together to create and promote a flavor that could please locals and tourists during National Ice Cream Month. Last year’s flavor involved caramel, sea salt, fudge, brownies and chocolate chunks, known as Finger Lakes Visitors Confection, in a nod to the tourism organization’s name.
This year the creamery wanted to highlight the baked goods it offers at the store, said a spokeswoman for the Visitors Connection.
“Patty Casella and I are excited to work with the team at Finger Lakes Visitors Connection to bring this new flavor to our guests and to all who are planning a visit to the Finger Lakes,” said Kuras, owner of Cheshire Farms Creamery.
Different this year was crowd-sourcing the name. The agency promoted the flavor on social media and asked people to try the flavor and then submit name suggestions. Then they voted on four names that Finger Lakes Visitors selected from the pack. Cinn-fully Delicious beat out Buns of Cin, Cin-ful Doughlite and Cinnandaigua: The Chosen Treat.
Cinn-fully Delicious is sold at the creamery at 10 Parrish St., in Canandaigua.
