Maple View serves "Thank You Chancellor Thorp sundae"

Bookmark and Share

Maple View Ice Cream will feature a "Thank You ChancellorThorp sundae" this weekend to thank him for ending plans for an airport authority in Orange County
According to the grassroots group Orange County Voice, the sundae will be featured from Friday January 30 through Sunday February 1  in the Maple View Country Store on Dairyland Road and their Ice Cream store in Hampton Pointe. The sundae, designed by Chancellor Thorp's children, will feature Carolina Blue ice cream, hot fudge and whipped cream with optional wet walnuts. The ice cream will be custom made for the occasion using Maple View's famous vanilla ice cream mixed with precisely tinted Carolina Blue food coloring provided by UNC.
"This is not the first and probably not the last time that special interests will attempt to site an airport in Orange County. We were delighted at how quickly the new chancellor acted and hope that this is a sign of good things to come from UNC," Chris and Bob Nutter of Maple View Farm said in a release. "We look forward to meeting him and exploring opportunities to work with UNC to promote awareness of our rural community."
