Flavors are great, not exotic like some big city shops like Salt and Straw in Portland. But what they do they do very well. Maybe the best I've ever had. Huge scoops for less than going to a bland soft serve place. It's a hidden gem. The cheese is outstanding as well. Can't beat Ferdinand's.

Cougar Gold Cheese is world famous, and Ferdinand's makes other varieties of cheese too. You can often watch them making the cheese. And, don't forget to try their delicious ice cream! Their ice cream has won national awards.

The ice cream is amazingly crazy! I have had the ice cream in a cone and it is perfect. The shakes are good but the malt my daughter had was horrible....I think they need to stick to a recipe. The malt came out with water consistency and was undrinkable. I don't know how they could of even handed it to... More

Yummy ice cream, fun atmosphere with quick service. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Even on college move in day wait was quick. Ice cream and cheese of many choices and all freshly made on site. Observation deck was interesting to see and the workers were engaging and entertaining! Neat little spot on campus.

Now a Pokeymon Go Gym! The downside is you do have to pay to park here. You must have some ice cream. I love the Huckleberry Ripple, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Carmel Cashew, but I'm sure every flavor is fabulous! The ice cream is made at the college. The best place to buy Cougar Gold Cheese, $20 a tin, $17 for... More

Like Penn State University, WSU has an amazing ice cream shop that makes the ice cream on campus. It is easy to find and has pay parking and a few outside tables to enjoy your cone.

Let me just throw this out there right now: yes, it is more expensive here than buying your ice cream and cheese at Walmart. Get over it! It's a teaching facility!!! The ice cream is actually creamy. The cheese is amazing, especially the Crimson Fire (my favorite)! You can never go wrong with Cougar Gold. The only downside is that... More

Not just hints of PB, but GIANT CHUNKS OF PB!!! OH how I miss that ice cream! The caramel cashew is also one of my favorites, and then the ripples are to die for. Then to recover from the sugar high, try some of the cheese. The Cougar Gold is of course the most popular and my favorite. But the... More

In addition to very fresh made cheese and ice cream they do serve espresso at a very reasonable cost. Parking is not the greatest because you are on campus but a must visit place while you are in Pullman and take home some Cougar Gold, world famous cheese!
