31 Flavors of Football: Muscadline Ripple Ice Cream

To help you and me get through the drudgery of August, I will present in this space a daily scoop of MSU football-ness, as inspired by a certain ice cream chain. August has 31 days, so I’ll let you work it out from there. Here is today’s flavor.


Who likes ice cream? I know I do. Thank goodness I’m not lactose intolerant, or I’d miss out on one of the biggest treats MSU has to offer.

As you probably know, State produces its own ice cream. You can find it at the MSU Cheese Store (yep, they make cheese, too), and I can always find it in the press box on football game days. It’s one of the items offered up during halftime.

There are many flavors, and I’ve tried a few of them. But I keep coming back to one flavor: muscadine ripple. I’ve never seen another ice cream maker produce this flavor, and I can’t understand why, because it would make some serious dough. It’s my favorite ice cream flavor, of any brand, ever.

And of the 31 Flavors of Football offered up this month, this one is no doubt the tastiest. (SEE WHAT I DID THERE??)

I like football and all, but the single best highlight of an MSU home game, for me, is that halftime snack of muscadine ripple. I have only one complaint: the containers aren’t as big as they used to be. I believe the downsize came last year. Wonder if anyone would notice if I snagged two.
