When Purple Door Ice Cream put out a call for customer-inspired flavor ideas last month, they received over 300 submissions from their ice cream loving fans.  Since then, those submissions have been narrowed down to eight delicious choices.

But only one flavor will have the honor of becoming a permanent fixture on Purple Door's rotating flavor menu.

That's where you come in. 

Which new flavor will be featured permanently on the menu? That's up to you. And trust us when we say that (just like any election) every vote counts.

Stop in at the Purple Door Ice Cream scoop shops in in Walker's Point or at the Mequon Public Market between Sunday, June 12 and Sunday June 19 to taste a flight of all eight chosen flavors and vote for your favorite.

Flights featuring mini scoops of each competing flavor will be sold for $10 and will come complete with one voting ticket. 

The winning flavor will be announced the week of June 20th.
