According to Henry, ice cream makes you pretty. No guarantee on that, but we do guarantee it will make you happy!
Share your favorite ice cream recipe by cranking up some ice cream for the 17th Annual Killis Melton Ice Cream Crank-Off at Chestnut Square Historic Village. Grab some friends and come on down to win first place in your category: Chocolate, vanilla, fruit, blank and nut, you made what?, outrageous and gourmet (good enough for a 5 star restaurant). Best overall and People’s Choice awards will also be given out.
There’s no entry fee and lots of fun prizes. ‘Crankers’ should prepare two gallons of their flavor entry for judging and public tasting. Ice cream for judging must be prepared at the Crank-Off. Enjoy the free entertainment and the joy of creating old-fashioned homemade ice cream with family and friends. Scout troops, church groups, and other teams are welcome to participate.

The mission of the Heritage Guild of Collin County and Chestnut Square Historic Village is to preserve and perpetuate the heritage of Collin County. We are proud to share a part of that heritage through the Doc & Clyde Ice Cream Freezer exhibit (cited in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest freezer exhibit in the world) and the Killis Melton Ice Cream Crank-Off. Both were generously donated to Chestnut Square in 2009 by Clyde and Lu Geer.
Proceeds from the Crank-Off benefit Chestnut Square Historic Village and the Doc & Clyde Ice Cream Freezer Exhibit.
