Located right on the campus of the University of Connecticut, the UConn Dairy Bar serves outstandingly good ice cream in various forms and flavors daily along with packaged ice cream available for purchase to take home. The ice cream is made right on campus daily and is rich in butter-fat content; hence, extremely delicious. While the Dairy Bar serves the... More

UConn dairy bar makes their ice cream fresh from the milk of their own cows.on campus.every day. The ice cream is worth standing in line for and sometimes there is a line. But it moves fast and for the money, it is the best deal around! I haven't found better ice cream anywhere: pistacchio, almond amaretto, Jonathan's, coconut and chocolate!... More

If anywhere nearby, one shouldn't pass on a visit to the UConn Dairy Bar. Our favorites are the almond amaretto, Husky Tracks (vanilla with peanut butter cups) and an outstanding chocolate with fudge brownies. Others have lamented the cost compared with the store bought products, but they are not comparable as most grocery brands are whipped to contain about 50%... More

I took the family here for ice cream. The ice cream has to be among the very best I have ever eaten. It is so creamy that regular ice cream from the store will seem like there is something wrong with it after trying UConn’s ice cream. I picked cotton candy for my ice cream and do not regret my...

UCONN Dairy Bar has ice cream that tastes absolutely fresh and handcrafted. The flavor selections were really interesting, too. It was great that they had standards, like chocolate, for my daughter. However, my son and I were much more adventurous and enjoyed toasted almond amaretto and strawberries and cream. It's probably for the best that we don't live closer....it would... More

This is a great place to go for fresh ice cream made in a traditional way. It's made by students in the dairy program at the school and I've never been disappointed. The only limit they have seems to be the flavor selection which could probably do with a little more

A UCONN alum, I'm prejudiced. However, my wife has no allegiance and says it's the best ice cream. When we"re visiting family in Danbury, we make the 90 minute trip for the ice cream. First, we have "lunch" of a sundae or a few scoops of ice cream. After going to the Coop, we return to get a milkshake for... More

The Dairy Bar is my second favorite ice cream place in CT (Rich Farm in Oxford being my favorite), but their coconut ice cream is the BEST I have ever had. Other favorite flavors are toasted almond and banana chocolate chip. They have a lengthy list of flavors with some standards that are always available and some rotating in and... More
