30 Oct Ice cream flavor chosen to mark 175th anniversary
The voters have spoken: 175 S’more Years will be the commemorative ice cream flavor for the University of Wisconsin’s 175th anniversary celebration.
UW–Madison’s Babcock Hall Dairy Plant has already begun mixing batches of the rich chocolate ice cream with a marshmallow swirl and graham cracker crunch. It will be available on campus beginning today and at select local retailers after that.
“With all its educational and research achievements in the past 175 years, the University of Wisconsin has improved the lives of Wisconsinites and people everywhere in big and small ways,” said Charles Hoslet, vice chancellor for university relations at UW–Madison. “What better way to celebrate that than with a generous scoop of 175 S’more Years?”
Voters were asked to choose one of four flavors in an online poll in early October, and 8,438 votes were cast. The other options were Demi Semi Confetti, Demi-Semi-Sweet-Centennial and Flamingos on the Hill.
