Matcha Marijuana Ice Cream: Freedom to be Stoned

Cornelians have spoken: Sun exit polling predicts that Dank Green Goddess Raspberry Matcha will take the cake, and the Sun could not agree more. On April 20, students from Food Science 1101 shared their ice cream creations with an eager crowd of students, waiting to test flavors. The three flavors that have been developed this year are, Dank Green Goddess Raspberry Matcha, All-Star American VBC (Vanilla, Blueberry, Cherry) and Bananas for Brownies Buds ‘n Blunts. The winning ice cream flavor will be announced at Slope Day instead of Commencement, as done in previous years. Since Flo Rida recently notified the Student Assembly that a Boogie Wit Da Hoodie would be replaced at Slope Day with Snoop Dog, students are keen to make Cornell as welcoming as possible for the A-list celebrities.

Lifestyle Endorses Brewing CommuniTea: Freedom Of Expression

Editors note: This piece was originally published in the print edition of the Sun on April 18. Transitioning from spring break to the grind, the “Freedom Of Expression” Ice Cream Voting was the silver lining to an otherwise difficult week at Cornell. Inspired by this year’s inaugural academic theme, the project featured flavors developed in Food Science 1101, available for free sampling around campus. With three different delectable options, participants cosplayed food critics, voting online for their favorite dessert. And after ample research, the Daily Sun’s Lifestyle team has come to a consensus about which flavor we think deserves to become a Cornell classic.  The victor of this sweet competition will make an official debut at commencement and appear at Cornell eateries later. 

Five opportunities to taste and vote took place from April 10 to 12, at various locations on campus 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. or 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. On Wednesday, students sampled at Stocking Hall and Toni Morrison.

15 Below, Outside and Inside

If you’re looking for traditional ice cream, 15 Below is not the place to go. But it does offer a unique twist on ice cream with their “fried” roll method. I would recommend going for the unique experience that 15 Below has to offer.
