Ontario Woman Wins Ice-Cream Naming Contest


BURLINGTON, Vt.. — Ben & Jerry’s is waffling no more on the name of its Canadian-themed flavour, as Burlington, Ont., resident Carolee Dunn has bestowed the witty moniker “Oh, Cone-ada” on the waffle-tinged concoction.

The contest to name the vanilla, fudge and waffle confection began in April, when the Vermont-based company asked  Canadian customers to name the Canuck-themed flavour that they temporarily dubbed “We Are Waffling.” Contestants were invited to share suggestions on Ben & Jerry’s Facebook page.

“Because it had waffle cone pieces, I wanted to put something that had the word cone in it, and that is how I came up with the title,” Dunn, a 27-year-old student nurse, told the Canadian Press.

As an added — and tasty bonus — Dunn will receive a year’s supply of “Oh Cone-ada!”

Look for the newly minted flavour on shelves this fall.
