Recap Ice Cream Extravaganza (Spring 2017)

Highlighted by ice cream and gelato, courtesy of Young’s Jersey Dairy and Miami Ice, Garden Commons played host to another fun rendition of Ice Cream Extravaganza! It was especially enjoyable for those with a sweet tooth!

Young’s Jersey Dairy brought a variety of flavors to share with guests, while Miami Ice brought a few of their classics from Armstrong Student Center. Guests also had the opportunity to win prizes from Graeter’s, Spring Street Treats and Mitchell’s Ice Cream, so they could continue the ice cream festivities after the special dinner was over.

Young’s Jersey Dairy, based out of Yellow Springs, provides the ice cream used in Encounter milkshakes and is the creator of Red Brick Bliss, Miami’s exclusive ice cream flavor served at Miami Ice.

Miami Ice is located in the Armstrong Student Center. Their delicious gelato is handmade, in-house at Armstrong.

Recapping Ice Cream Extravaganza (Fall 2016)

It was all smiles at Garden Commons during last Thursday’s Ice Cream Extravaganza event! Students braved the rain for servings of ice cream and gelato, courtesy of Madisono’s, Young’s Jersey Dairy and Miami Ice.

After all, ice cream is worth it.

Madisono’s, a company based out of Cincinnati, served delicious artisanal gelato and sorbetto to guests. Young’s Jersey Dairy, from Yellow Springs, offered a wide variety of their own tasty ice cream flavors. Finally, Miami Ice made the trek from Armstrong Student Center to serve some of their own wonderful gelato.

Additional ice cream novelties were also available and students had the opportunity to enter giveaways with a chance to win prizes from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams and Graeter’s!

If you are craving more sweets from last night’s festivities, Madisono’s gelato and sorbetto can be purchased on campus at Market Street at MacCracken.

Young’s Jersey Dairy supplies the ice cream for Encounter milkshakes and will be unveiling a new, exclusive Miami ice cream flavor at the M-Pire State of Mind Homecoming Special Dinner on September 15th.

Miami Ice gelato is made in-house at Armstrong and is available for purchase at the Miami Ice location there!

We All Scream for Ice Cream (and Gelato) at Ice Cream Extravaganza!

The weather has been… well… let’s say “unpredictable”, but that doesn’t change the fact that summer is right around the corner and that means…

ICE CREAM!

So, as a way to beckon in the (presumably) warmer weather and give students a break from finals prep, we brought some ice cream and gelato experts in to help throw an Ice Cream Extravaganza at Garden Commons! Our guests were none other than Madisono’s Gelato, Young’s Jersey Dairy and Miami Ice, who all provided tastes of their refreshing products.

Madisono’s Gelato is hand-crafted and features some really unique artisanal flavors like Carmello & Sea Salt and Madagascar Vanilla, which were served Thursday. The Cincinnati-based company makes gelato and sorbetto that is sold out of Market Street at MacCracken, if you’re looking for your own pint!

Young’s Jersey Dairy visited us from Yellow Springs, Ohio. They brought vanilla, key lime crunch, strawberry, chocolate peanut butter and chocolate ice cream with them (and brought a cow – how could we ignore that?). Young’s Dairy is more than just an ice cream maker, with a fun setup in Yellow Springs that is definitely worth a day-trip. And, as always, you can treat yourself to Young’s Dairy ice cream with a stop by Encounter at Maplestreet Station!

Miami Ice also made the trek (aka 5 minute walk) to Garden Commons to provide students with some of their very own gelato. Based out of Armstrong Student Center, Miami Ice makes their own gelato in-house and offers a variety of tasty flavors! On Thursday, guests were treated to their choice of Birthday Cake, Red Orange and/or Red Velvet gelato!

Thank you everyone who joined us for our Ice Cream Extravaganza and we hope you enjoyed it! As always, keep tabs on the world of Miami University Dining by following us on TwitterInstagram and Facebook! Don’t miss out on any future events or specials!
