10 o’clock List: Kenyon Ice Cream Flavors

So many flavors, which one will you decide on? (Via http://www.newyorker.com)

Peirce has been increasing their ice cream and frozen yogurt game recently, and in the past few weeks we’ve seen flavors from blueberry to passion fruit. Peirce ice cream is tried and true and always a solid meal choice. What would happen though if there were Kenyon flavors? What is the most quintessential Kenyon flavor?

  1. Old Kenyon. This one will deceive you with its look. Three flavors make the treat so perfect: Keystone light, sweat, and small traces of vomit. Just like Neapolitan ice cream brings you back to tea with your grandmother, this treat will bring you back to that last time you ran out of Old K, your hair stuck to your forehead with sweat, and accidentally peed in front of all the DKEs. College, man! Continue reading

Made in Peirce: Petitfours

petitfours 1

I made this, and you can too!

If you’re familiar with my past Made in Peirce installments, you know that I don’t settle for simplicity in the servery. I’ll be damned if I don’t have you eating gourmet in no time. This time around, I decided to take a spin on a dainty dessert option. Come out of the servery with a couple of these bad boys on your plate and your friends will definitely be impressed, I promise.

Kenyon Doppelgangers: Liam Reilly ’17 and Oubadah Alwan ’18


Reilly ’17 (left) and Alwan ’18 (right)

Dear readers, we have a fantastic treat for you today – another pair of Kenyon doppelgangers.  Liam Reilly, is a sophomore from Brooklyn, NY, and his new found twin is Oubadah Alwan, a first year from Claremont, CA – a fact which I knew, but had to ask Oubadah for the umpteenth time.

When I was assigned this article, I immediately sent the two an email, congratulating them on their selection as this week’s featured twins.  I arranged a time and place to meet them, where I asked them very invasive questions (i.e. what’s your favorite ice cream flavor?), made them take a personality test, and took pictures of them.

Made in Peirce: Making the Most of Your Soft-Serve Experience


Among the true college freedoms are sleeping in, staying up, and eating ice cream for every meal. As we acclimate to our dining hall environment, we can forget how great these opportunities are; it may actually be possible, if I dare say so, to get tired of ice cream. Preventing such a tragedy is of utmost importance; thus I present the following humble suggestions.

photo (10)

Buckeye classic. As close to life-changing as an ice cream can be.

One of Kenyon’s simple joys is stopping by your Kenyon College Bookstore (© Jim Huang), for an ice cream cone. Central Ohio’s Velvet ice cream is delicious and Bookstore ice cream (the name of Velvet ice cream sold in the Bookstore) is one of best deals in town, especially since all the nice Bookstore people have a loose definition of a “single” scoop. Even though every flavor of ice cream sold by the Bookstore is tasty, some flavors are better than others. Below are the five best ice creams the Bookstore has to offer:
