Peachy Paterno is Penn State’s Favorite Flavor

Milk, cream, and sugar. Peaches, nectarine puree, and corn syrup. Vanilla, peach schnapps, and, apparently, a little more vanilla.

Those are just a few of the ingredients in Penn State’s favorite ice cream flavor, Peachy Paterno. Named after the legendary coach, the product has made a rise to the top of the Berkey Creamery’s sales charts in recent weeks, as Penn Staters celebrate its namesake.

Creamery Staff Assistant Naomi Minarchick confirmed as much. “We’ve been selling a lot more Peachy Paterno since the day he was fired, since all that controversy started,” she said.

This comes as no surprise, as JoePa’s proverbial Penn State family rallied around him in every way possible when things began to escalate a few months back.

In anticipation of a high demand for the flavor last week, the Creamery decided to produce an excess amount of Peachy Paterno. “We had 500 half-gallons going into last week,” Minarchick said. “We made an additional 500, and we had just 360 left at the beginning at the this week. We sold over 600 of them. Usually our highest seller is vanilla, right now it’s Peachy Paterno.”

Having a scoop at the Creamery could be considered a rite of passage of sorts, a part of Penn State tradition. I’ve waited on my fair share of lines there, but by the time I get to counter I always seem to settle for the reliable vanilla. Next time I brave the cold and make the journey from downtown to campus, I might just have to get a cup of Peachy Paterno.

You know what, make that a cone.
