Ben and Jerry learned how to make ice cream at Penn State. Berkey Creamery uses the same formula so how can there be better. My wife and I actually took Ice Cream 101 at Penn State just for fun. We are hooked on PSU ice cream. We fill our freezer in the RV when we are in State College and... More

No visit to Penn State is complete without a stop or two at the Berkey Creamery. For $3.50 you get a generous portion of fantastic ice cream. They have a nice selection of flavors and the service is efficient even during busy times. The hours of operation are also very accommodating to most sweet tooths.

Located in the middle of campus - follow the signs - park in the garage next door (free 30 minute parking). Very good ice cream produced by the college's agriculture department.

This past weekend, we revisited an old time favorite. It was relocated from "down the street" several years ago, but the ice cream has not lost its appeal. Wonderful flavors, big--did I say BIG?--scoops of ice cream. We also took home three gallons packed in dry ice for the trip back to New York. Didn't try any of the other... More

We visited over Columbus weekend which also happened to be parents weekend at the university. Despite what seemed like a very long line, it was all the way down the walk and steps just on the lower sidewalk when we arrived, we were inside and ordering in under a half hour. The line moved very quickly and it gave us... More

Many different flavors to pick from and always get a large portion. They also sell other dairy items, various cheeses, dips, cheese curds, sandwiches, pretzels, drinks, and of course ice cream to go. They will pack it in dry ice if you are taking it to travel. Black cow ice cream is wonderful!

Stopped on our way through. My wife has told me about this place ever since I met her. We finally got here and I ordered the butter pecan and she ordered the peanut butter swirl. I thought they were both very good. Price was $3.50 for two large scoops in a cup. Place has been here a long time, it... More

I have always heard how good the ice cream is at PSU. I finally was in the vicinity to stop and I have to admit it is the best ice cream ever. The price is good and I had to tell them to stop because the ice cream on the cone was already way too much. Definitely a must stop!

Great ice cream and lots of it. Why do you think people stand in line on game weekends? What more could you want?
