Northampton’s Herrell’s Ice Cream shop will produce the winning students’ flavors.

Italian Lemon Dream, featuring mascarpone and a blueberry swirl, took first place in the conventional ice cream category; Dairy-free Blueberry Muffin, with an oat milk base, was the no-moo top pick; and Chicha Morada, a frozen version of the traditional Peruvian fruit juice made from purple corn, was the winning sorbet.
