The 10th annual Ice Cream Social at the Chattanooga Market was held on Sunday allowing Chattanooga Market-goers the chance to vote for their favorite local ice cream.  Shortly after 2:30 p.m., all 1,000 tickets were sold, making it the earliest sell out in the history of the event.  Cold Stone Creamery, Clumpie’s Ice Cream, Mayfield, Milk & Honey, and The Ice Cream Show all participated in the annual event held at the Chattanooga Market to benefit Chambliss Center for Children.

After testing 10 different flavors, participants voted for their favorite flavors in two categories.

  Coming out on top with the Best Pure Flavor was Milk & Honey for their Summer Strawberry Sorbet.  The Best Flavor With Inclusions award was given to Cold Stone Creamery for its Founder’s Favorite, which is a mix of sweet cream ice cream, brownies, fudge, caramel, and pecans.  Clumpie’s Blueberry White Chocolate Chunk was a close second in this category. 

"The Ice Cream Social is not only a fun, annual ice cream testing, but also a fundraiser for Chambliss Center for Children.  Since the vendors generously donate the ice cream, all of the ticket revenue goes back to support the children at the local non-profit agency." officials said. 

This year, the event brought in more than $5,000 for the agency.
