    How about a vanilla with fruit swirl (blueberry/raspberry) – tie dye ice cream. yum. Not sure what it would be called.

  2. Ellen Elizabeth Mae Says:

    A pineapple-cranberry ice cream. It could be called “Prince,” all the letters taken from both pineapple and cranberry. It could be a vanilla base and all blended, or a vanilla base and the pineapple and cranberries in as chunks.

  3. Jaie Livingstone Says:

    I’m thinking something that says, “American” and “old Time-y” like cranberry-apple crumble, vanilla with cranberries, apples and crumb topping chunks.

  4. GDL Says:

    I’m thinking…trail mix in an ice cream. Maybe an almond or cinnamon base, some cranberries, ground nuts, chocolate chunks. Super northwest. Hearty but tasty. Fruity and nutty. Kind of like all of us that love Folklife.

    • GDL Says:

      By the way, great choice with Full Tilt! Justin is a genius ice cream mixmaster…so whatever happens is going to be amazing.

  5. Ali Says:

    love the name “cluster folk”. it could be vanilla ice cream base, with you know, clusters of yummy oat meal cookies… chocolate chunk maybe??? yummm, can’t wait!!

    • Syd Says:

      I LOVE Cluster Folk! Brilliant! I think it should be vanilla with granola clusters. For obvious reasons. :0)

  6. Holly Reilly Says:

    How about “Chunks with folks” (a shout out to the old 91.3 lunchtime show)

    I think it should be a sweet cream base, chunks of dried apples, dried peaches, roasted pumpkin seeds, and chunks of chocolate. Like a trailmix ice cream.

  7. Sam Says:

    Clusterfolk is a great name. Cinnamon ice cream with granola clusters!

  8. Kimberly Christensen Says:

    “Twirly Skirt” ice cream.

    Vanilla ice cream with (wavy) ribbons of chocolate, raspberry and tangerine in it.

  9. Chachi Says:

    some possible ice cream names: oral lore, cakewalk

    maybe not.
    or gypsy sherbet!

  10. Pam Jones Says:

    Strawberry cheese cake or a rum raisin with your special twist.

  11. Ari Says:

    Lets get some chocolate chips or chunks in that cluster folk.

  12. Karen Says:

    Lemon Lavender seems like just the right thing. It would tast like the last kiss of summer with the calm cool out of fall. Or, Go straight into fall with Chocolate Ginger.

  13. Meggan T. Says:

    I think a soy chai tea would be delicious, you could throw in swirls of some seasonal fruit to cut some of the richness of the cream.

  14. Hana P. Says:

    Creamy mango lassi.

    This rich and mangoliscious (i know, what a wierd word) would be so delicious and delectable. It should be made with some creme and of course tons of real mango puree. So delicious, and I’m sure it would be a hit!

  15. LeighAnne McQuarrie Says:

    Allspice Apple Walnut ice cream, we’d call it Tree Hugger

  16. Charlie Tucker Says:

    Clusterfolk is pretty funny. Here are some more ideas.

    1. Folkie Polkie – A fruity sorbet or vanilla ice cream with fudge and carmel ripples.
    2. NW Folkalicious – A mix of lots of things. Kind of like rocky road or something.
