I can't believe how much ice cream gets stuffed into a cone ordered at the Creamery. The flavors offered run from the norm (Vanilla) to decadent (Death by Chocolate).I do believe it is the best ice cream I have ever tasted. I've been there early, late, summer, winter - it doesn't matter. The place is always crowded, but they get... More

I have been to State College several times now and I can't leave without visiting the Creamery. My favorite is chocolate marshmallow. Don't forget to bring some home... they have dry ice and little coolers to purchase.. it travels well even on hot summer days!!

The richest ice cream I have ever had. Peachy Paterno and Death by Chocolate are my favorite flavors. Might not be suitable for lactose intolerant due to the high amount of cream (its my own opinion though).

The Berkey Creamery is famous for a really good reason - they serve great ice cream that is made on campus. A variety of food items are also available - soups, salads, sandwiches, snacks, etc. I went there twice - first time for bittersweet mint which was very good and the second time for death by chocolate which was fabulous....

If you're hungry for a wonderful ice cream, Berkey Creamery is the place to go. There is a large variety of flavors, with Peach Paterno being the best. Food allergies are treated seriously, with a separate person assigned to make sure there is no cross contamination

If you want fresh ice cream this is the place. I believe the time from the cow to your cone is 2-3 days at most. Very clean, state of the art production center.

Best ice cream ever and you have to buy some to go for friends and parties. I recently bought some for my friends down south and they loved it. Matter of fact, my friends said to make it a special priority to bring some of that ice cream time I go south and they will pay me for it.

The creamery at PSU is legendary. Great ice cream and its one of those places where waiting in line is part of the experience. Its a great place to stop after some serious walking around campus. I was told they invented mint chocolate chip at Penn State. The creamery is geared up for huge crowds so don't expect a custom... More
