Best ice cream? Really?

I don't understand what all of the fuss was about, it was just ok. The portions are ridiculously big, one portion can feed three people.

My family and I have been to the Creamery many times. The ice cream is pretty good. It is consistent, and it goes back to the days when there was more of an emphasis on agriculture at Penn State. The kids like the ice cream because the servings are huge. However, I think it may be infused with a lot... More

Every time we visit Berkey Creamery we get a different flavor ice cream-there are so many to choose from. Then we get our favorite 1/2 gallon to take home & enjoy!

Very high quality ice cream and very consistent. Nice venue. As usual, parking on campus can be a challenge, but wasnt a problem this time.

If you are visiting Penn State you have to visit the Creamery. You can even order a freezer bag and some dry ice so that you can take a few 1/2 gallons home with you. I love WPSX Coffee Break and Bittersweet Mint.

The long standing tradition of wonderful ice cream remains at Berkey Creamery . Cones and dishes come in many flavors and are generously dipped. You can also purchase salads and snacks, hot and cold drinks, and half gallons of ice cream packed to travel. A really great Penn State tradition !

This is a great place for Alummi, Students, townspeople and visitors for the Centre Region. The best ice cream anywhere on this earth, and they take soany extra precautions for Peanut and Nut Allergy customers. It truly is our family's place for an ice cream treat!

There's no such thing as a small scoop here. It's been around forever (not in the same location) and hasn't changed much. Mint chocolate chip and coconut chip are my favorites. Truly a good representation of Penn State.
