A Utah resident is one of 10 national finalist in Baskin-Robbins "Next Favorite Flavor Contest."

Heather Gayler, of Herriman, suggested a red, white and blue ice cream called "Thank You Troops" that is made with vanilla ice cream and mixed with blueberries, cherries and strawberries.

Gayler wrote in her contest application that the flavor is meant to honor the troops and is dedicated to her grandfather, a World War II veteran, who would "always order vanilla with strawberry or cherry" topping.

Utahns can help Gayler win the contest by voting for "Thank You Troops" at baskinrobbins.com/flavorcreator. Deadline is Thursday, Jan. 17. Currently her ice cream is in fifth place behind a chocolate ice cream called "Hunky D’Oreo" and a cake batter with fudge concoction called "Give Me a BR-AKE"

The winning ice cream will be a Flavor of the Month later this year. Its creator also will receive a trip for two to Los Angeles to meet members of the Baskin-Robbins culinary team and spend a day helping to bring their virtual flavor to life.
