Cornell Dairy is naming an ice cream flavor after former Vice President Joe Biden in honor of him speaking at Cornell University's commencement May 27 in Ithaca, New York.

A graduating student who interned for the university's teaching dairy-processing plant last semester came up with the idea and texted Deanna Simons, the quality manager and academic programs coordinator for the dairy, according to The Cornell Daily Sun, the university's independent, student-run newspaper.

Simons contacted the UDairy Creamery at the University of Delaware, where Biden is an alumnus and now teaches and consults, and discovered there had never been a flavor named after the former vice-president and that his favorite flavor was classic chocolate chip, The Cornell Daily Sun reported.

The dairy has made the flavor, and sought to name it with a student contest that ended Monday night. Here are the top 5 name choices:

  • Biden’s Chocolate Bites
  • Bits n’ Biden
  • Big Red, White & Biden
  • Not Your Average Joe’s Chocolate Chip
  • Uncle Joe’s Chocolate Chip

A winner has not yet been announced, and the newspaper has said that the final name will have to be cleared with Biden’s representatives, but the ice cream is scheduled to be served during graduation weekend activities.

“If it gains momentum, we’ll make more,” Simons told The Cornell Daily Sun. “We’re keeping our fingers crossed; we’re holding our breaths.”

Biden’s love of ice cream has been well documented, and Biden himself readily admits to the obsession.

During an Ohio visit to an ice cream store last year, Biden said, “My name is Joe Biden, and I love ice cream. You all think I’m kidding — I’m not. I eat more ice cream than three other people you’d like to be with, all at once,” The Hill reported.

Twitter was churning with delight for the news of Joe Biden's very own ice cream flavor.
