Ice Cream Flavor "Sandusky Blitz" Removed From Penn State
Berkley Creamery, an on campus ice cream shop, has pulled its flavor ceremonially named after the school’s longtime defensive coordinator, Jerry Sandusky, according to the school’s student newspaper, The Daily Collegian.
The flavor entitled, “Sandusky Blitz,” has been reportedly removed from the menu of Berkley Creamery as well as the shop’s website. A flavor named after the school’s head coach Joe Paterno, titled, “Peachy Paterno,” reportedly remained on shelves.
Earlier this week, Sandusky was arrested on child molestation charges stemming from incidents that allegedly occurred between 1994 and 2009, involving eight young boys. Paterno became aware of the infractions in 2002 when a graduate student told the head coach that he had witnessed Sandusky showering with a ten-year-old boy at the school’s football facility. Paterno in turn reported the incident to the administration, however, the administration failed to notify the police, breaking Pennsylvania law.
