New I-74 bridge sparks new Whitey’s ice cream treat

The Quad Cities has a new bridge and now a new ice cream treat to celebrate the opening of the new Interstate-74 bridge.

Whitey’s Ice Cream, a Quad Cities original, has introduced the “Bridge Sundae” to honor the new I-74 span. The new treat is Whitey’s December Treat of the Month.

The sundae features two sugar cookie halves to represent the two bridges, with Mississippi Mud ice cream and chocolate sauce underneath to represent the Mississippi River.

The sundae will be the price of a two-dip regular sundae for the month. It is available at all Whitey’s locations, according to the Whitey’s website.

Whitey’s has introduced several ice cream treats over the years to honor big events and organizations in the community. For instance, in 2009, Whitey’s introduced Sgt. Camo ice cream to help veterans’ organizations.
