Voters have decided that the flavor that best reflects Thurston County is the hot, doughy goodness of an apple fritter — perhaps just the kind sold at Lattin’s Country Cider Mill and Farm.
The winning taste was revealed last week during the Olympia-Lacey-Tumwater Visitor & Convention Bureau annual state of tourism meeting. The VCB teamed up with the grannies of Tumwater-based Ice Chips to make a candy that represents the flavor of the region.
Voters also considered two other flavors: artesian rain (infused with mint) and coffee rain.
Those in attendance received a tin of apple fritter-flavored candy. The flavor is available for tasting in the Ice Chips tasting room in Tumwater.
