    The butter pecan ice cream is Soraya’s favorite cone in America! This is the oldest creamery in Pennsylvania and has always been run by Penn State University’s Agriculture School.

    Happy Happy Joy Joy isn’t just an ice cream flavor! Penn State students participate in THON each year to bring joy to children with cancer.

    Death by Chocolate is the best flavor. Period. End of story.

    Try the Peanut Butter Swirl!

    USA TODAY asked local experts to name one great ice cream shop in each state:The Creamery=PA's top pick! Pumpkin Pie when in season; Alumni Swirl or Death by Chocolate anytime. Sadly, "vanilla" isn'

    Creamery ice cream is very high in fat and the staff give large portions. Don't hesitate to ask for a smaller portion. The staff doesn't mind and it saves some calories!

    Lunch time.

    Save time standing in line by going to an open register. I see poeple waiting in line instead of going to another register to pay.

    Heads up. The cones only come in one size... Ginormous.

    the chocolate shakes are so good!

    So much cheaper than buying coffee anywhere else (on or off campus).

    Kara · March 15, 2011
  • John M.

    Best ice cream anywhere! Butter pecan is outta site.

    Grab a half gallon of your favorite flavor before making a trip home; the staff can pack it to keep it from melting AND your parents will be so happy with you!

    Peachy Paterno....lives on forever!

    Bittersweet mint is AMAZING!!

  • Tabatha A.

    Can't decide between a cone and a bowl? Get the "friendly"... It's both!!!

  • PSU-Lion D.

    Scholars Chip is not as exciting as it sounds. Plain vanilla is surprisingly just that: plain. Death By Chocolate, Watermelon sherbet, or seasonal Pumpkin Pie are execellent choices.

    Best ice cream in the planet!

    Nothing like a good Creamery bagel for breakfast.

    Ask for a half cup. Full is too intense!

    The ice cream is awesome but the cheese is phenomenal especially the pepper jack.

    I'm sorry but I really hate how this ice cream tastes. I'm one if the few though - everyone else seems to love it

    Tim P. · October 11, 2011
  • Vincent C.

    The ice cream is of high quality, and they give you enough for two people. I'll just keep mine to myself though, thank you. Yum!

    Vincent C. · October 9, 2011
  • Amanda C.

    Best ice-cream in State College. If you are a coconut fan, try the coconut ice-cream! It has pieces of coconut mixed in!

  • Allan K.

    Get a couple half gallons "to go" and they'll pack it in a cold bag with dry ice! Good for a few hour drive home if you're just visiting.

    Allan K. · December 1, 2010

    Autumn + Pumpkin Pie ice cream = a don't-miss combo. Get it when you can!

    You can park as a visitor in the garage with no charge for 30min. Just turn on those hazard flashers.

    Do NOT get the no sugar added strawberry. It's fake sugar added fake strawberry.

    So. Many. Flavors! Can't. Decide.

    Last time I was here Joe Paterno walked through the dining area and I was star struck. Feeling bittersweet :( but going for Death by Chocolate (perfect indulgence for a chocolate lover!)

    The Philly pretzels they sell during the day are free later in the evening so that they can get rid of them!
