Berkey Creamery: ‘Peachy Paterno’ Ice Cream to Remain

Penn State’s popular on-campus creamery is devoting sales of an ice cream flavor named for Joe Paterno to an organization that works with the issue of child sexual abuse. The university’s College of Agricultural Sciences said Monday it would donate sales of Peachy Paterno for the next year, but it hasn’t identified the recipient yet.

The flavor honors Paterno’s work on behalf of the university’s academic side. Berkey Creamery has sold Peachy Paterno since the flavor won an ice-cream naming contest run by the Food Science Club in 1987. A department spokesman says the name will remain one of 100 flavors the creamery sells.

Whats the Sandusky flavor called? Strawberry Sandusky?
