Ever walked down the freezer aisle and thought, "Man, I could make the best flavor of ice cream"? Well, here's your chance! Along with our friends over at Food52, we're holding a contest to find your most delicious original ice cream recipes. The best part? The winning flavor will be produced by the freezer mavens at Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams.

Creativity is key, so let your imagination run wild. Your submission can incorporate Jeni's custom base recipe, but it's not required. Swirls, add-ins, and flavored custards are all welcome. A limited edition run of the winning flavor will be sold on Jeni's website , and if it's a popular seller, it may be chosen to be distributed nationally to stores.

So head on over to Food52 and share your recipe! (If you're not yet a member of Food52, just follow the links below the contest announcement to sign up to enter the contest). Submissions will be accepted until August 28th.
