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.
