Creamery ice cream will be sold at PSU games
Have you ever had the hankering for some Penn State Creamery Ice Cream at a Penn State football game? Well, great ready Happy Valley – it’s about to happen.
It was announced on Monday, that certain types of Penn State Berkey Creamery ice cream will be available when the Nittany Lions take the field on Sept. 2 against Akron in the season opener.
There will be six flavors available at Beaver Stadium – vanilla, chocolate, Death by Chocolate, cookies ‘n cream, chocolate chip cookie dough and Peachy Paterno. All flavors will be sold by the pint.
If you’ve ever asked for Creamery Ice Cream at a Penn State football game, you’re not alone.
“We get a lot of people asking whether they can buy ice cream at our stands, and until now, we’ve always had to tell them to just go to the Creamery,” said Penn State athletics concessions manager Eric Ebeling in a release.
Creamery ice cream was already available at the Bryce Jordan Center during Penn State sporting events there. It’s also available at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park during Penn State and State College Spikes baseball games.
“We’ve known for a while that our customers would appreciate the convenience of buying ice cream directly at the stadium, and we’re very excited to make that a reality this fall,” said Jim Brown, Creamery assistant manager.
Following the games, many fans wait in long lines for some Creamery ice cream. Brown is hoping that having the frozen treat at the football games will help alleviate some of those lines.
“It’s sort of a tradition to stand in that line,” Brown said in the release. “But not everyone has time or wants to do that for every football game. So we’re hoping that this will mean that everyone who wants our ice cream can get it every time they come to campus.”
Although pints are available in just six different flavors, Brown said the Creamery hopes to expand to 25 flavors next year.
