Creamery Debuts ‘Sir Paul McAdamia’ In Advance Of McCartney’s Concert

Sir Paul McCartney will perform in front of a sold-out Bryce Jordan Center on Thursday, and the Berkey Creamery has done its part to add to the “Beatlemania” sweeping State College.

The Happy Valley staple debuted its newest flavor on Monday, “Sir Paul McAdamia.” The new flavor consists of the Creamery’s legendary chocolate ice cream mixed with whole macadamia nuts.

Creamery supervisor Sue Watkins explained the process behind the creation of the new flavor, and said it’s a tradition for a town which hosts McCartney to name something after the music icon.

“McCartney’s promoters, as part of his appearance in State College, require that something in town be renamed after him,” Watkins said. “That’s a usual part of the agreement, that wherever he tours, a ‘staple’ of that town names something to commemorate him.”

Penn State and McCartney apparently agreed that there’s no better place than the Creamery to commemorate the Beatles’ first-ever appearance in Central Pennsylvania, so they created the new flavor in his honor.

You can buy ‘Sir Paul McAdamia’ as a cone, bowl, or milkshake in-store as well as in half-gallons. There’s no word yet on if McCartney plans to stop by Berkey Creamery and try out the new flavor (or any other) when he arrives in town on Thursday.
