Signature Sweet

A campus-made cookie in the shape of the UB logo has gained cult status within the university and beyond. Students often buy these blue-and-white-frosted treats, available at several campus cafés, to eat here or take back home—as do visiting parents. The cookies have been shipped to alumni gatherings across the country and were even served at a reception for President Obama when he spoke here in 2013. With a taste and texture that has been described as “magical,” the cookie reportedly features a secret ingredient that contributes to its addictive powers. As if sugar and butter were not irresistible enough.
