Michigan State Parks Getting Official Ice Cream

LANSING (AP) – Michigan will be getting an official state park ice cream – and residents will help pick the flavor.

The Grand Rapids Press reports Tuesday that people will be invited in January to submit their own favorite ice cream recipe for judging, naming and final selection.

The Michigan State Parks system is partnering with Hudsonville Ice Cream of Holland to produce the treat in 2012. The state Department of Natural Resources says it will be a limited edition official flavor of the Michigan State Parks.

Hudsonville Ice Cream says the effort was developed over six to seven months. A decision is expected early next year.
