Best ice cream ever

Always stop by when we pass through the area. Ice cream no matter what flavor is awesome. The workers must have been tired, they were less than pleasant. Not even a hello.

Wonderful Tradition on the Campus of Penn State. Usually busy but worth the wait. Great Ice Cream and Milkshakes. Homemade cheese and dairy choices.

I stopped at the Berkey Creamery after my visit to the Frost Entomological Museum with my group. The service was great the and lines moved quickly. Everyone loved their Ice Cream choices.

The Creamery ice cream is delicious, and the portions are huge. My favorite flavor, which they only make in the summer, is Arboretum Breeze. It is a combination of chocolate mint and raspberry. Delicious and refreshing!!!

Not many schools have their own ice cream shop, so this is one of a kind. The staff was friendly and the ice cream delicious. Will be back next time I am passing through State College!

This is the place to go for ice cream when visiting State College. Many flavors to choose from. Cones and half gallons to go on dry ice.

Love the ice cream and the take-out service for the long car drive home is very convenient. The line is frequently out to the door but don't worry it moves really fast and there is plenty of seating space outside if you can't find a seat inside!

Loved my Peachy Paterno ice cream. Hadn't been there in seven years since we don't live in the area. It hit the spot on that very hot day that we were there. My husband really liked his peanut butter milk shake.

Visiting PSU? Make this a must. The dairy here is absolutely delicious and serves as a dairy science laboratory for PSU students to learn. The order line can be long but it moves rather quickly and there is ample seating. The creamery offers dry ice so you can take home any ice cream, cheese and yogurt that you crave! Absolutely...
