Posted at 8:01 AM, Apr 07, 2020

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Local ice cream shop, Crank and Boom is once again creating a special flavor for a good cause.

In past weeks, Crank and Boom has released two flavors honoring Governor Andy Beshear. Those flavors are: "Candy Beshear" and "Beers with Beshear."

This week, Crank and Boom is honoring ASL translator, Virginia Moore, who has been by Governor Beshear's side during his daily updates. In an email to their fans, the Crank and Boom team wrote, "Miss Virginia, as she is known in our household, has become quite the rockstar. Did you see her sign "We Go Together" from Grease? Amazing! We thank you, Miss Virginia, for what you do each day!"

Virginia's S'mores ice cream is a mixture of Crank and Boom's SuperFudge Ice Cream swirled with homemade marshmallow fluff and dusted with their signature graham crumb.

$2 from the sale of each pint will benefit Lexington's Restaurant Workers Relief Program. The program is helping to feed restaurant workers laid off due to the coronavirus.

This flavor will be released on Tuesday, April 14. Pre-ordering will close Thursday, April 9 at 11:59 p.m.
