A quick internet search turns up hundreds of people who’ve moved away from the Upper Midwest now desperately trying to find a pint of the stuff. You’ll probably start your hunt for answers with Google, and a Wikipedia article, which will be the top result. All it tells you is that the origins of Blue Moon ice cream are unknown, stories are disputed and the list of possible flavors is long. However, it gets us no closer to nailing down what truly makes up the distinct flavor of Blue Moon.Some of the best research on Blue Moon Ice Cream comes from Nara Schoenberg who wrote about it for the Chicago Tribune in 2007.Whatever the case may be, Whoo NEW will keep looking until we find the answers.Until then…we’ll have to keep wondering, making guesses and developing theories.Through her research, Schoenburg discovered multiple mentions of a type of ice cream called Blue Moon in local newspapers dating back to the late 1930s – a decade before Sidon allegedly invented the flavor.This could mean that Bill “Doc” Sidon was the first to create Blue Moon ice cream – but he very well may have perfected the flavor as we know it today.You’ll see it on the ingredients list of packaging as Natural Flavoring.
You can use lemon oil or extract and raspberry oil or pureed raspberries.
