Ice Cream!!!

This among the best ice cream anywhere. We are frequent visitors here mainly in the summer. A family fun place.

The Uconn Dairy Bar has the best ice cream around. Great flavors and toppings, plus milkshakes and GIANT homemade ice cream sandwiches.If you haven't been here to check it out, you should. Parking can be slightly tricky during peak times, so just be careful.

People come from all over CT to buy and taste UConn ice cream. One can buy a cone or a dish, or whatever.

Ann iconic New England location at the beautiful Storrs campus of the University of Connecticut. Delicious homemade ice cream and treats. You can see the cows grazing on the sloping hillside in front picturesque New England vistas! Great, relaxing, and delicious fun!

I'm not normally a big fan of ice cream, but the Dairy Bar's ice cream is fantastic and homemade. It's too bad they came under UConn Dining Services, their environment changed. Their peppermint ice cream is absolutely amazing!

I definitely enjoyed this ice cream. They have Half Gallons, Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches, Ice Cream Pies, Cupcakes and Parfaits. It is a good place for a light lunch with a selection of Sandwiches and Salads and Soups. UConn Poultry Farm Fresh Eggs in a variety of sizes and a variety of Cheeses made in their creamery. Stop in you... More

It can be busy on a nice warm day but it's fun to walk around beforehand or afterward. Don't be intimidated by a long line. They are used to it!

We always look forward to a trip to the uconn dairy barn. The ice cream is made on the premises, and it's really good. If you ask, they have a booklet you can look at, which lists the ingredients, and you can see which ones are gluten free, etc. if in town, treat yourself to a treat at the uconn... More

We take our grandchildren whenever they visit. The ice cream is great and the college kids serving are even better.
