Our Wallyhood Fainting Goat Gelato contest has officially come to a close, and we received some great entries from the creative minds of Wallingford. We’ve narrowed down the list of potential candidates and now it’s up to you, the readers, to decide which flavor deserves the Readers Choice award.
On Friday, Fainting Goat will pick the winning Wallyhood flavor, and we’ll tally up the votes for Readers Choice and announce both winners later that afternoon.
Readers Choice Finalists (with their comments):
- Squirrel Swirl: A blend of chestnut, walnut and almond. Served upside down, “buried” beneath the cup.
- Rosemary Euphorbia: Rosemary and chocolate (because you can’t eat Euphorbia, and because chocolate – especially from Chocolati – is euphoric). Also, while not reflected in the name, but necessary to the Wallingfordishness, would be to garnish with one Big Pit (could be avocado or cherry). With the pit and chocolate around the outside – it’d even resemble a Trophy Cupcake, celebrating the uber-supportive business community Wallingford boasts!
- Raspberry Green Tea – Raspberry represents the festivals, Farmers Market, and kids slurping fruity fun. Green Tea captures the cool green evenings on neighborhood streets, as well as the area’s many nooks and crannies perfect for quiet contemplation.
- Chocolate chipotle chai! I’ve had it before (not in gelato, but in a drink) and when all three flavors are balanced equally, it’s amazing. You could say it represents Wallingford in that it’s a mixture of the traditional and the spicy. Plus, it’s fun to say!
- Vanilla: No comment
Vote early, vote often—but vote before this Friday!
