Penn State to sell Berkey Creamery ice cream at football games
UNIVERSITY PARK – Penn State officials said Monday they plan to sell Berkey Creamery ice cream at concession stands for the first time ever this season.
Fans will be able to purchase pints of vanilla, chocolate, Death by Chocolate, chocolate chip cookie dough, cookies n’ cream and Peachy Paterno at the stadium.
Until this season, Berkey Creamery ice cream was only available in the Mount Nittany Club section during games.
“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 Eric Ebeling, athletics concessions manager.
The move to bring ice cream pints to the stadium is part of a larger effort to expand availability of the creamery’s products. Last year, the creamery launched a new e-commerce website and plans are in place to make the pints available on the website and at Commonwealth Campuses by next year.
Tom Davis, Creamery manager, said he also plans to expand the number of flavors available in pint containers from the initial six to about 25 by early spring next year.
