Dream Flavor 



In celebration of National Ice Cream Day, one lucky ice cream lover will win the chance to create their very own dream flavor. The winner will consult with Gelati Celesti's owner to craft and name the flavor and will receive five quarts of their unique creation—and bragging rights forever. Additionally, the custom flavor will be sold for a limited time at all four Gelati Celesti locations with a percentage of the sales going to the winner’s charity of choice.



Customers can submit an entry at any Gelati Celesti store or share a photo of themselves enjoying Gelati Celesti ice cream on social media with the hashtag #dreamflavor. Posts must be shared publicly on Twitter, Instagram or posted on Gelati Celesti’s main Facebook page (@gelati_celesti).
The winner will be announced Monday, July 16 during a live drawing on Instagram. 


See below for more details and the fine print.

About the Dream Flavor Contest


This is all done in the spirit of fun and for the love of ice cream. You probably won't become famous, but you are competing for serious bragging rights.
If you win, you'll get five quarts of your dream flavor to take home and share. Or eat all by yourself. And as an added bonus, a percentage of the sales from your dream flavor will be donated to the charity of your choice. 


You do not need to purchase any ice cream to enter the contest, but don't let that stop you from indulging in a scoop or two. You can only enter one time per visit, but since the contest runs for 5 days and we have 4 stores, you can enter up to 20 times. We can't tell you how much that increases your odds. We make ice cream. We don't do math. You don't need to be 18 to participate; ice cream lovers come in all ages, shapes and sizes. 


If you win, we'll want to share your good fortune with the world. Or at least with RVA. That means using your name and your image in our social media posts. So don't be camera shy. Selfies of you eating your dream flavor are highly encouraged.
