Aggie Ice Cream announces new flavor honoring Cockett’s inauguration

The public tries the new Aggie Ice Cream flavor for the first time.

LOGAN – A new Aggie Ice Cream flavor was debuted in honor of tonight’s inauguration of Utah State University President Noelle Cockett. Students gathered on the west end of the Quad at noon to surprise the unsuspecting Cockett with the announcement.

College of Agriculture and Applied Sciences (CAAS) Senator Heather Lieber announced the flavor “will be forever known as Inauguration Peanut Butter Fudge Crunch.”

“We are proud to present a peanut butter ice cream with a fudge ribbon and chocolate covered pretzel,” she said.

Each person in attendance had the chance to try the new flavor.

Lieber said CAAS ambassadors and council members were asked months ago to contribute ideas for a new ice cream flavor, though they weren’t told why.

“We were provided a list of base flavors and mix-ins to choose from and were told to be creative,” she said. “Six ideas were submitted and the Dean’s Office and Creamery narrowed it down to four.”

Of those six flavors submitted, four were produced and sampled by the college’s ambassadors and counselors, which determined the chosen flavor.

Cockett’s inauguration address will take place at 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Ellen Eccles Theatre. A reception will be held after where the public will have the opportunity to meet with Cockett and eat – you guessed it – Aggie Ice Cream.
