CLEMSON – Clemson ice cream has been around for 100 years and on July 28, members of the Clemson community had an opportunity to become a part of this deliciously sweet tradition. The first-ever Clemson Ice Cream Makers Day was held in the only place where Clemson ice cream is made — the Ice Cream Innovation Laboratory in Newman Hall and the Class of ’55 Exchange on campus. Groups of families and friends created their very own signature flavors of Clemson ice cream. This event was led by Clemson food science students – Marianna Painter, a master’s student from Myrtle Beach; Kelly Polte, a junior from Elmhurst, Illinois; and Jonathan Dillard, a senior from Conway. More Ice Cream Makers Day events are being planned. To be contacted for future events, send name, email address and phone number to See images below from the first event.
