"My name is Joe Biden, and I love ice cream,” the former vice president said at the start of a speech in 2016 about the economy. He made the speech while visiting the headquarters for Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream in Columbus, Ohio.

"You all think I'm kidding — I'm not. I eat more ice cream than three other people you'd like to be with, all at once," Biden said.

In addition to supplying dairy products across the Cornell campus, Cornell Dairy is also tied into the university’s curriculum, involving students in both research- and industry-related programs.

Students voted on a final flavor name last week, which will be sent to Biden representatives for approval.

Out of the 150 submitted names, five top keepers included: Bits n' Biden; Biden's Chocolate Bites; Big Red, White & Biden; Uncle Joe's Chocolate Chip; and Not Your Average Joe's Chocolate Chip.

It is unclear what the final name for the flavor is.
