This is a treasure on the MSU campus. The milk comes from their own cows and the ice cream is made and served by MSU students.

The MSU Dairy Store has over 30 different kinds of ice cream. I had Dantonio's Double Fudge Fake and the Nittany White out, and both were excellent. My son had Buckeye Blitz (also excellent) and Blue Moon (only OK, the House of Flavors in Ludington has the best Blue Moon). The prices are low. It's fun to get some ice... More

MSU is known for its dairy, but enjoying a cacophony of flavors right in the student union is awesome.

Joined our daughter for lunch on a very cold March day! The cheese sandwich jot the spot, but the potatoes in the soup seemed undercooked....but honestly, we really go for the ice cream, and it didn't disappoint.

Do yourself a favor and visit the MSU Dairy Store--ice cream and cheese made on the campus of Michigan State University. Great selection of flavors including one for each of the Big 10 universities.

Ice cream is a huge treat for me, so I like to have the best when I do indulge. The Dairy Store has the best flavor selection, however not all flavors are available at the Union location. Next time, I'll get the Terrapin Toffee, last time I had a luscious coconut, almond and chocolate flavor~ loved it!! It's a great... More

The MSU Dairy Store is a must stop on campus to sample delicious ice creams and cheeses while visiting. Very high quality ice cream made here, yummy different cheeses. It is hilarious that they name so many of the flavors after Big Ten Teams here (and have for years). The Ag building has one location and there is also another... More

I had a cone of creamy raspberry chocolate chunk and like it so much, not too sweet, fruity fresh with some big chocolate chunks inside.

It was the best ice cream I've eaten in a really long time. It's made right at the location too. The manager showed me around the facilities and it was quite impressive.
