We stopped for an early afternoon dish of ice cream at Ferdinand's. There are a few parking spaces in front and we were able to snag the last one; otherwise I'm not sure where someone would park. We found the ice cream to be very rich and could not finish our bowl of two scoops...which was so reasonably priced as... More

Great ice cream and cheap ice cream prices. Their famous cheese is delicious but not as budget friendly. Must stop when in Pullman. On game days be prepared for a wait.

Stop in on game day for world class Cougar Gold cheese! Much better prices and variety than Costco or grocery stores. Delicious ice cream too.

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.
