It’s the Big Blue-Ha-Ha!

SUNY Empire State College Celebrates 50 Years with Dedicated Stewart’s Ice Cream Flavor

Ice Cream Diplomacy: A Historic Mascot Summit Conference (that many believed might never occur in their lifetime) took center stage as (L) Blue, representing SUNY Empire, exchanged formal (elbow bumps) greetings to commemorate the onset of Brew-Ha-Ha Ice Cream with (R) Flavor, Brand Ambassador for Stewart’s Shops. Sources believe that the gent in the middle is waiting patiently (and socially distanced) for a cone.

SARATOGA SPRINGS – Stewart’s Shops announces a partnership with SUNY Empire State College for their 50th anniversary with a dedicated ice cream flavor. This flavor will be known as SUNY Empire Blue Ha-Ha, originally known as Brew Ha-Ha. The flavor is affectionately named after the SUNY Empire school mascot, Blue.

SUNY Empire Blue Ha-Ha is a Richer Roast coffee ice cream brewing with espresso bean flavored chocolate flakes and will be available at the cone counter at all Saratoga Springs Stewart’s Shops.

This collaboration is a fun and exciting way for our local students, alumni, faculty, and staff to join in our celebration. We thank Stewart’s Shops for their contributions to our college and our community, and we look forward to many more years of partnership.”

Stewart’s Shops president, Gary Dake says, “We believe in the power of education and congratulate SUNY Empire on 50 years of providing educational opportunities to students of all ages and backgrounds. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate 50 years of education than with ice cream.”
