#NameOurVanilla Contest!!

Oct 29 2015

Victory Garden needs a new name for our Vanilla ice cream, and we are asking our customers to help us find it!

Did you know that vanilla is the second most expensive spice after saffron? That is because it only comes from one type of orchid, which has to be hand pollinated under ideal conditions in order to produce this exotic spice. What is so plain about that? Absolutely nothing, we say!

We are using Mexican vanilla beans from the region of Veracruz, Mexico, where vanilla originated. A flavor as delicate, exotic, and classic as Vanilla deserves a special title.

Especially one as delicious as ours. We take a lot of pride in the origins of this renowned spice and we want to celebrate it with a special name provided by our wonderful community of goat milk ice cream lovers! So please help us #nameourvanilla.

Here is how it works:
Step 1: Think of the best vanilla name in existence. It should scream “Vanilla is not plain”, “Viva Mexico” (optional), “Vanilla is the best flavor ever”, “You gotta try this vanilla”!
Step 2: E-mail it to us at info@victorygardennyc.com, submit it in the store with your name and contact info, or post it on our Instagram feed @victorygardennyc, on our Facebook page /victorygardennyc, or on twitter @victorygardenny. If you go social, be sure to include #nameourvanilla
Step 3: Wait till June 30th
Step 4: Win a whole lot of goat love. If we like your name best we'll put you, our Vanilla Victor, in our Goat Notes newsletter and send you a free shipment of our ice creams (including a pint of the newly named Vanilla). We will even include the newest edition of our Victory Garden T-shirt!
