Dear 100 Hour Board,
Pondering upon a pint of ice cream today, my mind began to wander. BYU seems to have an awful lot of signature food items (ice cream, brownies, bagels, chocolate-covered cinnamon bears, and the like). Is this common among collegiate institutions? If so, would you kindly accompany your answer with a few tasty examples?
Dear The Exquisite,
I went up to USU this weekend and tried Aggie ice cream! It was delicious. Almost as good as tacos.
South Dakota State University is rather proud of their ice cream and other dairy products, and even claims to be the birthplace of cookies and cream ice cream (a claim that is widely disputed). I think it's fairly common for agriculture-oriented state universities to have signature food products, and considering the high degree of refinement required for dairy, it doesn't surprise me at all that university ice cream is so common.
