Ice cream enthusiasts will once again have a chance to choose which new unique flavors will be added to the menu at one ice cream parlor in downtown Rehoboth Beach.
The Ice Cream Store will be hosting its 6th annual Ice Cream Tasting and Social from noon to 7 Thursday afternoon at the store on Rehoboth Avenue and the Boardwalk. This year, tasters will have 21 new flavors to choose from. Among the new flavors are Dirt, Peeps, Crack These Big Nuts, This Ish Is Off The Hook, Blood Orange Mango (Owner Chip Hearn's personal favorite), Minty Python, Cornbrea, and What Would Jimmy Buffet Do? It's 5 O'clock Somewhere. Hearn says while the event doesn't directly bring in more money to the store, it does help bring customers back later in the summer.
This year, The Cooking Channel will be in town to film the ice cream tasting. The tasting will be part of an episode that will air on the network on July 14 as part of a weeklong series on the best ice cream in America.
