Free ice cream taste tests featuring the finalists in the UDairy Creamery’s Blue Hen Flavor Contest will take place over the next few weeks, with the first scheduled Thursday, Oct. 6, on The Green.
UDairy Creamery staff combed through the nearly 300 entries submitted by staff, students, alumni, parents and UD friends. Eight flavor entries were selected and those flavors are currently in development at the creamery. The eight finalists are being notified.
In the first week, a taste test of the chosen eight entries will occur. Students who participate will be asked to vote for their favorite flavor and after tallying the results, the competition will be narrowed down to four finalists.
The next week, more taste tests and voting will lead to two finalists.
Votes will be tallied and the winning flavor will be announced during Homecoming Weekend. Prizes will be awarded to the winner and one randomly selected participant.
The taste test schedule is as follows, with all events running from at least 11 a.m.-1p.m:
• Thursday, Oct. 6 — The Green, near Gore Hall
• Thursday, Oct. 13 — Trabant University Center
• Thursday, Oct. 20 — UD Barnes and Noble Bookstore and Perkins Student Center
