PRAIRIE DU SAC, Wis., Feb. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Have you ever wanted to name a Flavor of the Day? Now you can. In honor of National FFA Week, Culver's is hosting a Facebook poll to name a special Fresh Frozen Custard Flavor of the Day, as part of Culver's Thank You Farmers Project. Guests can head to Culver's Facebook page until 10 a.m. CST on Friday, Feb. 28 to vote for either Mooey Gooey Brownie or Brownie Caramel Cow.
The newly named flavor, which is made with Vanilla Fresh Frozen Custard, chunks of chewy brownies and ribbons of old fashioned salted caramel, will make its debut at Culver's restaurants on Thursday, May 7, for Scoops of Thanks Day. The proceeds from its sale throughout the year will benefit local agricultural education programs.
"We're excited to get all of our guests involved in National FFA Week by asking for their help in naming our Thank You Farmers Project Flavor of the Day, the proceeds of which will help raise funds for their local FFA chapters," said Jessie Kreke, senior marketing manager at Culver's. "Agricultural education programs are essential in ensuring future generations are prepared to tackle the challenges facing our food supply and instill an appreciation for where their food comes from. We want to make sure students face no barriers, like cost, in receiving such an important education."
To further celebrate National FFA Week, Culver's is also launching its annual FFA Essay Contest. FFA members are invited to submit an essay responding to the prompt at culvers.com/essaycontest by April 20 for a chance to win up to $7,500 for their FFA chapters.
