Penn State ice cream is so good.

    Have you ever had PSU Creamery ice cream?

    The delicate texture is neither too soft nor too hard, but perfect. When your spoon (or tongue) comes into contact with your favorite flavor, the experience is at once wholesome and satisfying, but also teasing. I can't understand how I lived without it. The milkshakes, I hear, are pretty good as well. I'm gonna give them a try within the next few days (it's HOT at University Park-- over 90 right now).

    I'll challenge your PSU ice cream with U. of Wisconsin's Babcock Hall ice cream! :)

    UW, being in a dairy state, of course has a creamery and a school on making ice cream. I remember way back when, when you asked for a single, you actually get 2 fat scoops of ice cream. Their best ever was a double double chocolate almond (the 2 double's weren't a typo). It was so rich in chocolate, I think the chocolate was melting out of the ice cream. They had that only for one season and it never reappeared for the rest of the years I was there.

    OK, I hate you. Now I have a craving for some good ice cream. I may have to make a quick run to a ColdStone after I get home.

    Zz.

    We have a Cold Stone too, actually, but it's not as popular as PSU's. I had Cold Stone a few months ago, I believe it was the Birthday Cake special. It had their famous cake batter ice cream with chocolate and sprinkles.

    Anyway, I can't say PSU's is better than U of Wi's but I can say that ice cream is now one of my favorite foods. "From cow to the cone in three days" is what the tour guides say here. It's awesome going into the Creamery and seeing boxes and boxes of ice cream in the freezer.

    You know, I hate myself too. I want some but it's too hot outside!

    And I'd challenge both of you to compete against anything that comes out of the Ohio State Physics dept. liquid nitrogen ice cream maker.

    One word: Daim

    I don't care about home made or state-wise ice cream.

    I've heard stories about Cornell's ice cream too...

    EDIT: Why can't UA have ice cream :(

    I've just met my aunt and her daughter in a nearby store and we all went to Donald's for cones.

    Brain Freeze! :biggrin: :rofl:

    Actually, I think the creameries at most Ag universities are pretty good. I used to get chocolate malts (with extra malt) at the creamery where I went to school. :tongue2:

    Nope. I've had both too and The Creamery is still the best iced cream I've ever had.

    You guys are making miss Graeters! :cry: That's a small chain local to Cincinnati. It's the one thing I REALLY miss about living there, especially on a HOT day like today when ice cream would be perfect. It's just plain old store-bought here. :frown:

    I hate to say it, but there's a place right outside Cornell (I forget the name, I used to go there after doing hockey camp at Cornell) that completely kicks every other places ass.

    And I'm unbiased, since I'm not even going to Cornell

    Theirs is the best I've had anywhere! Even Ben & Jerry's or Haagen Dazs taste like cardboard by comparison. Black raspberry chip is just the thing for a hot summer day, and their butter pecan tastes like someone made it out of melted butter! :approve: The only thing I didn't like were their sorbets...too sweet for me. Oh...what was the name of the one they made specially for the Ohio State fans? Buckeye Blitz, or something like that? It has chocolate covered peanut butter balls that are supposed to resemble buckeyes.

    I might have to visit you just as an excuse to go to a Graeters! Columbus is a bit closer than going all the way to Cincinnati. :biggrin:

    You bet! Most all weekends this summer are good for me. No impending conferences for nearly 9 months and nothing else that's keeping me permanently chained to the lab. Maybe, we should have a Summer gathering at Columbus, wot?

    Meanwhile, I've got to try me the butter pecan. Sounds yummy!

    Best icecream? In my taste, Italian icecream, in Italy!

    Ooh, that would be fun! I should have a few free weekends coming up if anyone else wants to plan a Columbus get-together in the next month or two. I propose we meet at Graeters! :biggrin:

    I made it my mission to try every flavor they had before I moved. Actually, I had avoided the mint chip, because I'm not usually fond of that flavor, then a friend had six pints of it shipped to me as a thank you gift for rescuing them from near kitchen disasters over Christmas (I wouldn't dare try shipping it this time of year...it'd melt before I got it, even with it packed on dry ice), and included mint chip with it...I even liked their mint chip, and I never like mint chip!
