As the University of Cincinnati Bearcats prepare to take on Alabama in the Cotton Bowl on New Year’s Eve, they’ll be getting some hometown support through the re-emergence of a Graeter’s seasonal flavor.
Graeter’s teased the early return of Boldly Bearcat in a tweet Friday morning after fans had been asking the Cincinnati ice cream company to bring the flavor back in time for the College Football Playoffs.
The flavor will make its return on Dec. 26, according to the post. It’s not yet clear if it will remain as a seasonal flavor or if it will be added to Graeter’s permanent menu, which was also a fan request.
Boldly Bearcat is typically a limited seasonal flavor, only available during January and February, according to Graeter’s website. Seasonal flavors currently available include peppermint, available in November and December, and Eggnog, available in December.
Boldly Bearcat is described by Graeter’s as “a creamy mascarpone ice cream, filled with Oreo cookies and our signature chocolate chips.”
