An Ode to Usdan Ice Cream

Can you name that flavor??

The Usdan Marketplace has forever changed my relationship with ice cream.

Before I came to Wes, I considered myself well-versed in the classic chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry flavors. But, I never could have predicted that college would expose me to such exciting, delicious, and weirdly-named flavors as “Roadrunner Raspberry,” “Muddy Sneaker with Peanut Butter,” and “Coffee House Cookies and Cream.”

Fellow Wesleying-er michelle and I got lunch together at Usdan last week and felt so moved by the ice cream selection that we spontaneously burst into song. It went something like this:

Usdan Ice Cream Monster

Guys. Breaking: there’s ice cream in Usdan. It’s melting, but also, it’s monstrous. According to the King, “It’s from Hershey’s ice cream. They have guys who do this, you know.”

Probably the most exciting thing to hit Usdan’s ice cream options since the Great Ice Cream Tower of 2010.
