Last week, we brought you the thrilling tale of Kopp’s Frozen Custard’s special Father’s Day flavor, “Nuts For Daddy.” Again: not “Nuts For Dad“; “Nuts For Daddy.” Amazing. Today, we bring you the scoop on some more Father’s Day goodness, this time in the form of Purple Door Ice Cream‘s soon-to-be-released “Dad Flavors.” Will any of these flavors be called “Nuts For Daddy”? Probably not!

Anyway, Purple Door is hosting a 3rd Biennial Flavor Contest at its 205 S. 2nd St. location on Sunday, June 16. Fifteen customer-suggested flavors will be unveiled at the event, including a category of “Dad Flavors” that have been “created or inspired by dad.” Ticket holders to the event will vote for their favorite flavor, and the flavor with the most votes will become a “permanent flavor on Purple Door’s rotating flavor menu.” Neat!

Tickets to the event—which runs from noon until 3 p.m.—are $12 in advance, or $15 the day-of. Dads, daddies, and everyone else is welcome. (And yes, we’re aware of the difference between ice cream and custard.) Here’s a press release:

Purple Door Ice Cream’s 2019 Flavor Contest
MILWAUKEE, Wis. – Celebrate Father’s Day at Purple Door Ice Cream’s 3rd Biennial Flavor Contest, Sunday, June 16, 2019, 12-3pm at Purple Door Ice Cream, 205 S 2nd Street.

The 15 finalist flavors have been chosen and we are ready to sample ice cream and pick a winning flavor.

On June 16th, all are welcome to the neighborhood flavor tasting block party, where the 15 finalist flavors (master-minded by Purple Door customers!) will be revealed. In celebration of Father’s Day, a new category of “Dad Flavors” will join this year’s flavor contest, highlighting flavors created or inspired by dad. At the event, each of the 15 flavors is sampled by the community (ticket holders), who then vote on their favorite flavor. Ballots are counted at 2:45pm and one flavor is crowned champion. The ice cream flavor that receives the most votes will be made a permanent flavor on Purple Door’s rotating flavor menu.

Tickets are $12.00 (presale), or $15 (day of event) and include 15 flavor samples and a ballot for voting. Additional flavor samples can be purchased for $1.00 each. Ice cream raffle prizes throughout the day, as well. Tickets on sale at Purple Door Ice Cream, 205 S 2nd Street, 3536 W Fond Du Lac Ave or online at
