When we launched Flavour Creators we made a call to Aotearoa to get dreaming and our tamariki definitely answered.
We called on kids to dream up their ultimate flavour creation and they responded. We received over 6,000 entries! Working through all the creations that flew in our judges narrowed it down to a shortlist. Our lead flavour developers then took to the kitchen for testing and finally landed on their favourites, turning those into real life ice creams!
Our winner’s ice cream was scooped in all our scoop stores for a limited time with profits from that flavour going back to the creator’s school to help fund projects around innovation, creativity and science.
Meet our 2022 finalists…
Fiesta took out the top spot. This winning flavour was extremely popular, we scooped 1,080 litres of Fiesta ice cream!

This wasn’t the only Mexican-themed entry in our comp but it stood out to us because of the addition of corn chips – we just had to give it a crack and were pleasantly surprised by the salty, crunchy, spice they brought to the ice cream. Once we started eating it, we couldn’t stop.
Fiesta is a cinnamon spiced ice cream with crunchy little nubs of cinnamon sugar churros, white chocolate coated salsa corn chips and swirls of gooey dulce de leche caramel. Stirling describes Fiesta as a “rich, gooey caramel running down your throat with a crunch from the salty chips, a party in your mouth!”
We made 1,080 litres of Fiesta ice cream, presenting Stirling’s school, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart with $3,760.52 to go towards projects around creativity, science and innovation. We’re excited to see what creative endeavours they do next!
