TTC's Amy Knight's Mother Will Be an Ice Cream Legend

TTC's own Director of Public Safety, Amy Knight, has a mother who just made the foodie big time!
Ice Cream Earns Grand Prize The Post and Courier Wednesday, July 11, 2007
Jane Hegley scooped her competition. Now she's got her own brand of ice cream to show for it. Hegley won the grand prize in Blue Bell Ice Cream's "Taste of the Country" contest. To commemorate Blue Bell's 100th anniversary, the company asked contestants for new flavors and named winners in 17 states. Hegley iced the other choices with "Southern Hospitality," a mixture of Blue Bell's flagship flavor Homemade Vanilla with crushed pineapple, roasted pecans and a strawberry swirl. Either this year or next, Hegley's flavor will be created and sold throughout Blue Bell's 17-state distribution area.
She already had won a year's supply of Blue Bell ice cream and ice-cream party, to be given in her honor. And now she'll be the guest of honor at Blue Bell's anniversary celebration, to be held July 19-21 at company headquarters in Brenham, Texas. There, Hegley, her husband, John, and their grown daughter, Amy, will tour the manufacturing facilities, and perhaps try a small batch of "Southern Hospitality."
