The University of Delaware’s UDairy Creamery will be featured on an upcoming episode of the Food Network’s Eating America with Anthony Anderson.
The episode will air on the Food Network on Monday, Sept. 15 at 10:30 p.m., with subsequent airings on Tuesday, Sept. 16 at 1:30 a.m.; Friday, Sept. 19 at 11 p.m.; and Saturday, Sept. 20, at 3:30 p.m.
The episode chronicles the Rockwood Ice Cream Festival that happened on June 28-29 at New Castle County’s Rockwood Park, and specifically the “Best Sundae on Sunday” competition that took place at the festival.
The UDairy Creamery was one of the 10 creameries entered in the competition. Its entry, Rockwood Carnival Cardiac Craze, was a funnel cake topped with one scoop of nanner nutter, junk in the tree trunk and caramel corn, then topped with salted caramel, homemade caramel bacon popcorn, candy apple slices and Oreo whipped cream, with a fried Oreo on top that was sprinkled with powdered sugar.
Of the filming and the competition, Melinda Litvinas, UDairy Creamery manager, said that she and Jennifer Rodammer, creamery supervisor, had “such a great experience sharing the UDairy Creamery story on camera. Competing with such a crazy concoction our staff created made us so proud. It’s some well-deserved national attention for those that have been involved in the creamery, past and present.”
The festival featured ice cream served by dairies and ice cream shops, 25 restaurant and snack vendors, a beer garden and at least 30 local businesses and 15 non-profit organizations.
