What Classic Lansing Sweet Treat is Headed BACK to Spartan Stadium?
Oh how sweet it is.
A classic Lansing ice cream sweet treat is headed BACK to Spartan Stadium.
If this heat keeps up for a while, it will be right on time.
Welcome back Spartan Students and welcome back MELTING MOMENTS.
"It's Been A Long Time, We Shouldn't Have Left You..."
So what happened? How did we lose Melting Moments at Spartan games and at Spartan Sports in the first place?
According to WILX, the partnership that was MSU and Melting Moments began way back in 1985.
Then, in 2014, that came to an end. What had become an expected bonus at Spartan games was replaced with school-run confections. Supporters started a grass roots movement to try to keep Melting Moments, but it seemed that it’s time at MSU games had passed. (WILX)
You've Been Waiting Seven Years For This
And by this we do indeed mean those signature chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches.
Earlier today (Monday, August 30th) Melting Moments announced it will be returning to MSU athletic events in the fall. The company, which is itself run by MSU alumni, has signed a new contract which begins September (11th) when they welcome Youngstown State.
They've been at it for over 37 years according to the Melting Moments website.
Having this stellar fan base is both an honor and a big reason why we continue to serve today. There is nothing quite like the bright smile and sticky fingers of a customer indulging in their favorite treat. It's that kind of customer satisfaction that makes our work so fulfilling. (Melting Moments)
The ice cream sandwiches, for which Melting Moments is best known, will go on sale again at Spartan Stadium on Sept. 11 and return to MSU Spartan Sports this fall. (WILX)
