Vote for Purple Door Ice Cream’s Next Permanent Flavor

You have the power! Get out and vote.

Our own Purple Door Ice Cream is counting on customers to choose their next permanent flavor. They’re calling it, aptly, The Battle of the New Flavors Contest and it runs for one week – Sunday, June 12-Sunday June 19.

The process all started with flavor idea submissions. Last month, Purple Door received over 300 of them. They whittled that number down to eight finalists. And now it’s time for you to take the judging reins. All eight flavors will be available in a mini ice cream flight ($10) served at the Purple Door scoop shops in Walker’s Point (205 S. Second St.) and at the Mequon Public Market (6300 W. Mequon Rd., Mequon).



What’s Brew City’s best? We’ve picked 16 of our favorite Milwaukee craft beers for a March Madness-style tournament, but it’s up to you to pick the winner! Will it be bright and hoppy? Dark and malty? A zippy lager? Every one is worthy of the title; who will claim the sudsy crown?

Sample all eight and vote for your favorite. The flavor with the highest number of votes will become a permanent addition to the Purple Door rotating flavor menu. The winner will be announced Monday, June 20.

WALKER’S POINT HOURS:  Mon-Thurs 11 a.m.-10 p.m.; Fri-Sun 11 a.m.-10:30 p.m.

MEQUON HOURS: Sun-Thurs noon-8 p.m.; Fri-Sat noon-9 p.m.
