HARFORD COUNTY - Today marks a delicious milestone in Harford County's 250th-anniversary celebrations as local creameries unveiled a new collaborative ice cream flavor, "Come Taste My Ma & Pa Tracks."

The flavor launch occurred at 10 a.m. on Thursday at Broom's Bloom Dairy, 1700 S Fountain Green in Bel Air.

"As Harford County marks its 250th year, this tasty collaboration among our agribusinesses is a great way to celebrate,” County Executive Bob Cassilly said. “Whether you visit a cow-to-cone creamery or one of our local shops selling homemade ice cream, you’ll find unique homegrown flavors to enjoy.”

Inspired by Harford County's anniversary beer, "Come See About My Pale Ale," the ice cream's name pays homage to the song "Come See About Me." This song, known for being popularized by The Supremes, was written by Havre de Grace native Nella Dodds in her early teens.

What makes this flavor launch even more remarkable is that each creamery on Harford's Ice Cream Trail will be offering its own unique take on "Come Taste My Ma & Pa Tracks." Ice cream enthusiasts are invited to experience the variety of interpretations by traveling the trail and sampling each.

"We are thrilled the creameries along Harford’s Ice Cream Trail are working together to create a flavor that truly embodies the spirit of Harford County," said Jay Ellenby, Chair of the Visit Harford Board of Directors. "The 'Come Taste My Ma and Pa Tracks' ice cream flavor showcases the incredible talent and craftsmanship of our local creameries while paying homage to the history and traditions that make our community so special."

The "Maryland's Ice Cream Trail" promotion, a summertime favorite, recognizes Maryland dairy farms that make their own ice cream from their cows' milk, guaranteeing an authentic, homegrown treat. With today's launch of the anniversary flavor, this year's trail promises a sweet and memorable journey for all.
