The UCONN Dairy Bar ice cream is awesome. It is right on the campus at UCONN and the ice cream is made right there. The portions are very generous!!! They also make ice cream cakes.

Wide variety of flavors. They have ice cream cakes, huge ice cream sandwiches, and cupcakes (which looked amazing) available in their freezers. The sundae of the month was quite large, enough for two people to share. A lot of construction is going on around the Dairy Bar right now but, there are plenty of signs directing you where to go....

Excellent ice cream! Many flavors to choose from, made fresh on site from milk from their own dairy farm.

I hadn't been to the Dairy Bar since leaving UCONN about 8 years ago but it was just as amazing as I remember. If you are in the area or visiting the campus it is a must stop. There are different flavors with UCONN themed names which are fun and the milkshakes are amazing as well.

Hands down the best ice cream I have ever had. I had the husky tracks. Vanilla ice cream Reese's peanut butter cup chunked into it. With chocolate swirled. Wow. I don't get to UConn often but if I do I will always hit this place up

The UCONN dairy bar is a very old tradition. They make good ice cream from their cows' milk. Nuff said.

There are few places in the world that someone can go and literally turn back the hands of time and feel like a kid again..UConn Dairy barn is one of them! They are under serious renovations on campus, and last time I went parking was a bit tricky, but the ice cream is absolute heaven and takes you back to... More

The university makes its own ice cream in a variety of flavors, and this is where to get it. The portions are generous. A two scoop cone is almost too big to eat! While you are here, visit the cows, horses, sheep and pigs used by UConn's school of agriculture.
