New Creamery Flavor Suggestions: 2015 Edition

As Penn Staters, we hold many things near and dear to our hearts, including every single one of the 100-plus creamery flavors. The creative juices are definitely flowing over at the Creamery with titles like Arboretum Breeze, Berkey Brickle, and Mint Nittany.

But just like last year, we realized there were some people on this campus that deserve their own flavors. Here is what we came up with.

Sandy’s Snickers

barbourLovingly named after our energetic, busy athletic director Sandy Barbour this flavor is sure to sell out quickly with its array of flavors. We thought that this could be a mixture of chocolate, caramel, and snickers bites! Best served with some 409 stickers on the side.

Honey Roasted Hackenberg

Since Dr. Bundy is retiring this year, it would be no surprise if he actually got his own flavor. Our rendition of his flavor would be a swirl of chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla ice cream with pineapple, cherry, banana, and nut bits throughout the ice cream — a real ensemble.

Nougatty Newbill

NCAA Basketball: Ohio State at Penn StateAs a dedication to one of our favorite Penn State basketball players, this flavor could be a twist on a few different candy bars like the Milky Way, Three Musketeers, or Snickers. After all, Newbill played multiple positions during his time on the Penn State hardwood.

Susan Russell Smile

Pegula Freeze


Named after the man who gave us the Pegula Ice Arena, this flavor would be a whole new endeavor for the Creamery. The Creamery would need to buy a Slush Puppy machine, and this magical drink would be a Slush Puppy and vanilla ice cream mixed together.
