MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The chancellor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison recently earned an unusual honor -- having an ice cream named after her.

Rebecca Blank's ice cream is called Bec-Key Lime Pie and it's being made at the Babcock Dairy Plant on campus. It will be available Sept. 1.

The name was selected during a contest from more than 400 suggestions.

The plant offers 75 flavors a year with 20, like vanilla, offered year-round. Four "feature flavors" are offered per month.

The plant made 300 gallons of the Bec-Key Lime Pie, so it will only be for available while supplies last.

The store also offers the Berry Alvarez, after the school's athletic director Barry Alvarez.
