SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Over the weekend, around 1,200 Skidmore College students, staff and basketball fans gathered to make an important decision: What would be the new Skidmore-themed name for Stewart’s Mint Chip ice cream flavor.

During Saturday’s Big Green Scream basketball game between Skidmore and Clarkson University at Williamson Sports Center, the crowd cheered two prospective flavor names.

The winning candidate was “Skid Mo’ Mint,” which won out by an edge against “Creative Mint Matters,” named after Skidmore’s slogan, “Creative Thought Matters.”

The renamed flavor will be on sale in 10 Stewart’s Shops locations in Saratoga Springs and Ballston Spa starting in March. The name will not be changed in stores outside of those areas.
