Ice Cream like it ought to be

I was travelling through the Palouse and always like to find regional or local premium ice creams. I've sampled other dairy production college ice creams and found them great. This was no exception. Typical pain driving around a campus. But worth it. High butterfat, real flavors, just like... read more

This is must stop for delicious, creamy ice cream. Also the place to buy many different flavors of Cougar Gold cheese. The ice cream portions are huge, a single scoop barely fit on top of the come!

We were students here in the 1980s, and the ice cream quality has not diminished one iota since then. On this weekend, we teased our 17-year-old son that he was finally going to get his very first milkshake. Once delivered, he did not disagree. The only thing that we feel may be ever so slightly less enjoyable (compared to 30... More

Thank you for your review. To supply the demand for our fresh curd we now vacuum seal the fresh curd in a bag to keep it as fresh as possible. If you put your fresh curd in the microwave for a few seconds not longer than 5 seconds it will get back it's squeakiness. More

Ferdinand's offers an excellent variety of ice cream, they are exceptionally good! You will also find the famous Cougar Gold cheese which is outstanding. This place is a "must visit" if you are in Pullman.

Great hand made cheeses, ice cream and even smoked sausage. All are a part of WSU Food Sciences department. They even have a latte machine there so you can order a mocha, get some cheese and then top it off with a cone! Don't eat up all the Tin Lizzy Ice Cream, I need my fix of it once a... More

Fabulous award-winning Cougar Gold (and other varieties) cheese and ice cream that is rich and incredibly delicious! One of my favorites is their peanut butter chocolate! Give it a try.

Ferdinand's has been a tradition in Pullman for over 60 years. I've always known it for the best dairy fresh milk and ice cream you've ever tasted, and of course they're famous for the cheese. The ice cream is made on site from mostly local ingredients and it's a fantastic combination of hard-pack ice cream with a smooth, creamy texture,... More

We went to school here and got hooked on Cougar Gold cheese. Have been buying this cheese annually for 50 years and share it at all special occasions with friends and family. This visit we also bought an ice cream cone as a treat. We had forgotten how good this ice cream is. So much richer and creamier than the... More

Went there for Cougar Gold, tried a few samples of other cheeses and ice creams. Did I mention the Cougar Gold? Really an ice cream shop with retail cheese sales. Oh, and buy and buy some Cougar Gold!

Ferdinand's sells Cougar Gold and other cheeses, Cougar Smokies sausages, and ice cream, all made on the WSU campus. They are all excellent! There is a viewing room overlooking the cheese-making facility. Caramel Cashew and Raspberry Ripple are 2 of our favorite ice cream flavors. It is worth your visit!
