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

The Penn State Creamery is the best ice cream that I have ever had. Every time I go, I have to get the butter pecan. I wish I liked it a little less so I could try a new kind of ice cream. The ice cream is made right there. There are rumors, that the ice cream is only 24... More

This is a "must-stop" when visiting the Penn State campus. While most of the offerings center around the ice cream, there is all-types of short order food menu items. But it REALLY is all about the ice cream. As part of the Penn State Agricultural/Food Services, the creamery really displays the origins of what Penn State is about -- an... More

The creamery ice cream is truly great. The lines are sometimes long and it is not the least expensive option however, the ice cream is worth the wait and the price!!

What can I say? The Berkey Creamery at Penn State University is truly the best ice cream ever! My husband and I prefer to get the cone. We love bittersweet mint. I have tried others but find it hard to change. Many of my friends like Peachy Paterno. No matter what your taste there is no beating the creamery for... More

Many ice cream options and good value for what you pay for. The serving size is very large and they are happy to give samples if you want to try a flavor before buying

This is an absolute MUST if you come to visit Penn State. The ice cream is cheap, delicious, and there's plenty of it. I saw this place on the Travel Channel and just had to come check it out. Get the Cookies 'n' Cream - you'll be glad you did!!

This ice cream is the best there is plane and simple! The servings are huge it is hard to pick a flavor because they are all so good and it is hard to finish your serving Because it is so big. If you are near PSU you must stop,

I took my son here after a Penn State football game. It's definitely not the best time to go to avoid a line but it was either wait in traffic or go get ice cream:) I had heard of this place many times but this was our first visit. The ice cream was delicious. They have a nice selection of... More
