Are your ready for some "Slammin' Yamz" ice cream?

Cornell University students came up with the flavor fit for the holidays.

Slammin' Yamz is made with vanilla ice cream, yam puree, molasses, cinnamon and nutmeg - with a marshmallow swirl.

It wins the annual ice cream contest for the school's food science students.

Slammin' Yamz will also be sold at the Cornell Dairy Bar during the spring semester.
