No matter which side of the political aisle you’re on, we can all agree with former Vice President Joe Biden on at least one thing: Ice cream is delicious. In honor of Biden’s upcoming appearance at the university’s convocation and mindful of his famous weakness for scoops and cones, Cornell University Dairy — a dairy plant located on campus — is creating a flavor inspired by the meme-friendly political figure.
Although the flavor has not been named yet, Cornell Dairy called the University of Delaware, Biden’s alma mater, to find out if this has ever been done. (No, it has not.) Cornell Dairy did get the scoop on his favorite ice cream flavor: chocolate chip. Since then, a long list of creative entries has been whittled down to five possible flavor names: Biden’s Chocolate Bites; Bits n’ Biden; Big Red, White & Biden; Not Your Average Joe’s Chocolate Chip; and Uncle Joe’s Chocolate Chip, according to The Cornell Daily Sun.
“We don’t know why [Biden] loves ice cream so much, but there’s always been social media posts about ice cream and him, so we thought this would be a unique way for Cornell to welcome him,” Matthew Baumel, chairman of the university’s convocation committee, told The Cornell Daily Sun.
We’re crossing our fingers that Biden gets a chance to sample his namesake ice cream during his visit to Cornell on May 27.
