“Homemade Ice Cream - Yum!!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

We were told if we went to Clemson you have to go to Clemson Ice Cream at the 55 Exchange. We did and sure glad we did. They have a great variety of choices in a very clean and upscale looking place on the campus. The prices seemed to be quite reasonable. So glad we took the recommendation.

“Still Great”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Although it is in a different location and a much different atmosphere than when I went to Clemson in the 90s the Ice Cream is still incredible. My wife loves the blue cheese and always gets some to take home with us. The shakes are probably the best anywhere! This should be a must for everyone visiting Clemson.

It is always great to hear from our alumni and we agree that there is no better milk shake than a Clemson Milk Shake! With our new outdoor seating area at the Hendrix Student Center we are now creating a similar experience to your "Newman Hall Experience" for the next generation of Tigers. We look forward to seeing you during your next trip back to Tiger Town.

“Best Ice Cream Ever---Lori's Fudge Brownie Happiness!!!”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Every flavor here is delicious, but my favorite is dark chocolate chocolate chip with brownie added in on the Tiger slab. It's so good you think you've died and gone to heaven!! Their ice cream shakes are always a winner, and the student servers are really friendly.

"Lori's Fudge Brownie Happiness" is indeed a great flavor. It is one of our "Donor Named Tiger Slab Recipe Flavors". Anyone can create and name their on signature flavor in honor of a special person by making a gift to our Student Endowment Fund. The honoree receives a special certificate and has their picture and ice cream flavor description listed in the store. More information about our signature naming opportunities are available on our website.

“Sorry they're closed!”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

A must when visiting the Clemson campus--disappointed it has been closed for over 2 months for remodeling. Delicious Ice creams, shakes and sundaes prepared and served by students. Have all the extras like special cones and additions. Don't forget to take some blue cheese home!
