Traveling ice cream
New UDairy Creamery truck serves ice cream at Delaware State Fair
5:17 p.m., July 23, 2013--The UDairy Creamery will be serving ice cream at the Delaware State Fair in Harrington, which opened Thursday, July 18, and will continue through Saturday, July 27.
The “Moo Mobile,” UDairy Creamery’s new ice cream truck decorated in cow spots and ears and equipped with a speaker that plays the UD alma mater and fight song will be parked in Harrington all week.
Partnership for change
UDairy Creamery ice cream will be available in two locations throughout the fair. The truck will be serving up sweet treats every day on Halloway Street from 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Additionally, fairgoers can get UDairy Creamery ice cream at a booth in the Delaware Building every day from noon-8 p.m.
The new truck is the only University-funded ice cream truck in the nation. A collaboration between the Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics and the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR), the truck serves as an example of UD’s dedication to the state’s agricultural heritage and values.
“The Moo Mobile is allowing the creamery to attend larger events such as the State Fair and Coast Day with the capability of serving larger quantities of ice cream and offering more flavor options,” said Melinda Litvinas, UDairy Creamery manager.
Additionally, the UDairy Creamery operations give prospective future Blue Hens a glimpse of the hands-on learning opportunities available at UD.
“It’s a great opportunity for our UD student employees to learn how to operate a mobile facility, just another facet of entrepreneurship,” said Litvinas. “During the fair, we also staff Future Farmers of America volunteers from across the state, furthering our mission to teach students and support Delaware agriculture programs.”
The University encourages State Fair attendees to join the conversation about the unique ice cream truck –and all things UD and State Fair related using the hashtag #StateFairUD.
