Who says you can’t have ice cream for breakfast? When presented with the challenge of creating a brand new ice cream flavor for Ben & Jerry’s, complete with a name, ingredient list, container design, and a charity to donate its proceeds, our students have risen to the challenge! Yesterday was flavor-test day! Students brought their own ingredients to create their new flavor and try it out. I would say their excitement about sharing their new flavor with others outweighed the excitement of eating ice cream at all.
A huge thank you goes out to the Northstar staff visitors who popped down during first hour to help with taste-testing and providing feedback on the new flavors.
The coolest part – after tweeting about yesterday’s festivities, Ben & Jerry’s caught wind of it and have provided an opportunity for our students to suggest their new flavors to them through a website! It doesn’t get much more authentic than that.
Let’s hear it for social media!
