Creamery dubs anniversary flavor Birthday Bash

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Berkey Creamery’s 150th anniversary flavor has a name.

Labeled birthday cake since its debut in July, the flavor is now called Birthday Bash. Management made the choice after more than 1,700 votes were submitted when the Creamery called for naming suggestions. 

"The outpouring of devotion, excitement and participation during this momentous occasion in the Creamery’s history is simply amazing," said James Brown, assistant manager. "It is a true testament to Creamery fans, customers and friends, making us proud to call everyone part of our family!"

The newly named Birthday Bash became the anniversary flavor after more than 5,300 votes were cast to pick the flavor in a contest lasting from May 24 to June 7. The Creamery began offering the flavor during the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts in July, selling its initial run of 300 gallons in four days.

Half-gallons of Birthday Bash will be available starting Sept. 12 for the home opener game of the 2015 football season.

Multiple events and activities have been organized around the Creamery’s anniversary, including the creation of a Flavor Passport, allowing people to mark the flavors they try, and an exhibit of Creamery artifacts.
