Ice cream flavor named for new UW-Madison chancellor

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The ice cream plant at UW-Madison has named a new flavor in honor of the school’s new chancellor.

It’s called “Bec-Key Lime Pie,” and the name was among 400 suggested in a recent contest.

The flavor recognizes Rebecca Blank, a former Obama White House official who became the new Madison campus leader a few weeks ago.

The Babcock Dairy Plant on campus will start selling the new “Bec-Key Lime” flavor on Sunday. Only 300 gallons were made, and it’s expected to go quickly.

Babcock Hall comes up with about 75 new flavors of ice cream each year. About 20 are offered throughout the year, and four “feature flavors” are sold every month.
