Made by MSU: “Nittany White Out” Ice Cream
They say, ‘Beware of Greeks bearing gifts,’ but the Penn State Alumni Association made an exception last week when Michigan State sent over a few gallons of their Nittany White Out in honor of National Ice Cream Month. (Yes, we were shocked, too, when we learned that the Spartans have a flavor named after Penn State.) In fact, the East Lansing creamery has a flavor for all of the Big Ten rivals: Hoosier Strawberry; Badger Berry Cheesecake; and Buckeye Blitz, which is peanut butter ice cream with buckeye candies. There’s even a Husker’s Sweet Corn flavor replete with sweet corn pieces. As for the Nittany White Out—a subtle vanilla ice cream with salted caramel swirls and rounded chunks of pretzel pieces covered in white chocolate—we’ll go on the record and say we’re fans of it. Though we’ll still always be partial to our Berkey.
