Penn State To Keep 'Peachy Paterno' Ice Cream On Shelves

Tuesday November 22nd, 2011

Penn State University said today via Twitter that they have no plans of discontinuing an ice cream flavor called “Peachy Paterno,” which is sold on campus and produced by the school run Berkey Creamery.

In the wake of the recent child molestation scandal that has rocked the Penn State athletic department, the school made the decision to pull the flavor “Sandusky Blitz,” named after former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, from shelves earlier this month.

Sandusky was arrested on child molestation charges two weeks ago, stemming from incidents that allegedly occurred between 1994 and 2009, involving eight young boys. Since then, head coach Joe Paterno, university president Graham Spainer, athletic director Tim Curley, and vice president Gary Schultz have all been forced out of their positions with the school.
