In one of contemporary culture’s greatest failings, Joe Biden somehow did not have his own ice cream flavor before now. But that oversight has been fixed — and what a sweet moment it is.
The new flavor comes courtesy of the Cornell Dairy Processing Plant, and, per the Cornell Daily Sun, is the brainchild of Cornell University senior Molly Mandel.
Mandel, who used to intern at Cornell Dairy, reportedly pitched the idea to the plant’s quality manager and academic programs coordinator when she found out Biden had been booked to speak at graduation.
And, of course, going through with it was a no-brainer: Joe Biden may have been the vice president of the United States, but he is the president of ice cream.
The flavor, which is currently unnamed, is Biden’s favorite — plain chocolate chip. We assume he will have a cone or four at graduation, probably while he’s wearing sunglasses.
