What could be better than the world’s top horses riders from the worlds of show jumping and dressage converging on America’s heartland to compete for one of equestrian sport’s most coveted prizes? How about all of that, and some ice cream?
The Omaha ‘17 ice cream is a creation of two Nebraska businesses: Omaha ice cream shop eCreamery and Baker’s Candies from the town of Greenwood. The flavor is a salted chocolate ice cream with dark chocolate chunks, and it needs a name befitting the event for which it was invented.
