UDaily: "Under the Sea" ice cream flavor marks MARACOOS milestone

The University of Delaware-led Mid-Atlantic Regional Association Coastal Ocean Observing System (MARACOOS) is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a new UDairy Creamery ice cream flavor. Dubbed “MARACOOS Under the Sea,” the ice cream consists of a blue-colored, sugar cookie-flavored base, with graham cracker crumbs representing sand and chocolate-covered Goldfish crackers mixed in.

The new flavor will be available at the creamery from mid-June through early October, including an appearance at Coast Day, the annual festival hosted by UD’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment (CEOE) and Delaware Sea Grant that takes place this year on Oct. 4 in Lewes.

“We wanted to turn the traditional anniversary into something fun by celebrating with a special edition ice cream,” said MARACOOS board chair Carolyn Thoroughgood. “This light-hearted 10-year celebration is just one small way to remind the community about the important work being done by MARACOOS partners every day.”
