Badger Babcock Favorites

We asked Badgers what Babcock ice cream flavor they would choose if they could only have one for the rest of their lives. We received more than 500 responses, and of the standard flavors, orange custard chocolate chip was the most popular. But we were most interested in the nonstandard flavors — maybe some will make a comeback one day, and maybe some will stay a sweet memory. Here's a Badger list of favorite gone-but-not-forgotten flavors, published verbatim.


Cherry chocolate chip was my favorite in the early 70’s.
