Went there before the football game, seemed that the line was a block long, had time to kill & all worked out, really nice setup, they ice cream was amazing "WHITEOUT", wish I could find that back home! Only drawback is you can't mix flavors.

While visiting for a PSU football game, we swung into the Creamery. It was quite busy for a Friday night but we got through the line quickly. I highly recommend the butter pecan!

Have to def stop and grab some ice cream while you’re in state college. If you like the ice cream they will pack a half gallon with some dry ice so you can take it home with you. My favorite flavor is Peachy Paterno

Came for the weekend with my daughter a former Penn Stater, first stop was the creamery, ice cream was fantastic, had Carmel peanut cluster, it was chocolate ice cream with nuts, marshmallow and caramel swirl. Much better then UCONN

This creamery, located on the PSU campus, will not disappoint! They carry traditional flavors and an assortment of some most unusual choices. Cones, dishes, and half gallons are all available for ice cream junkies such as myself. Choosing a flavor is often a daunting task,...More

It's busy all summer. Students start returning 2nd week of August. There is a parking structure directly behind the building with very reasonable rates.

I think the cones were around $3.50 or $4.00. They are one size only, huge! You can get it in a dish also. Worth it.
