We finally made it to Ferdinand's a couple years ago after hearing about it for a few years. Great ice cream AND Cougar Gold Cheese, plus other great cheeses like Dill Garlic and Vilking Cheese to name a few. And the grandkids love to go there! Who doesn't love really good ice cream!

Great place to visit, especially in the mornings while they are often times making cheese which one can watch from the viewing room. They offer cheese samples and ice cream samples. Cougar Gold cheese (their best cheese) is a sharp cheddar cheese that is quite tasty with apple slices, but they also have several other cheese flavors such as Crimson... More

This is a must stop and have some ice cream place. Ice cream is the best you have ever had and servings are huge.

$20 for Cougar Gold here! Ice cream so creamy and good, it will make you go mmmm. I had the Cashew Caramel. They will let you sample the different cheese varieties. Expect a line but it goes fast. Metered parking and you need to use a credit card, it will cost you a buck. Don't be stupid like me and... More

Ferdinand's Icecream is the best kept secret in Eastern Washington. There ice-cream and Cougar Gold cheese is absolutely amazing. The lines are long on football game days, but well worth the wait! There is some seating outdoors, but it fills up fast. Most people just enjoy the nice weather and sit in the grass under the shade trees. Go by... More

You just can't beat this ice cream. Go for whatever seasonal flavor they offer. We had huckleberry over the summer. Yum!!!! Take home some cougar gold cheese as well. You won't regret it.

Just like being back at Wazzu, long ago -- though this location is much nicer and there are more varieties of ice cream. They sell Cougar cheese as well. Prices are good. I bought bulk Huckleberry Swirl and 'Apple Cup' Crisp to take home for family dinner. Both got rave reviews. It is worth the effort to find the shop... More

For both ice cream and cheese, Ferdinand's is absolutely the best! First the cheese. The Cougar Gold is a cheese developed many years ago by WSU people and unique in taste. (Other flavors are also quite tasty -- especially the Mexican one whose name I can't remember at the moment.) Ferdinand's ships to all parts of the country and I... More

Ferdinand's is a creamery on the Campus of Washington State University that is operated by the university itself. The products produced in this facility are the result of scientific research and study. As a result, the ice cream and cheese is some of the highest quality and best that can be found anywhere. Cougar Gold cheese is extremely unique and... More
