Berkey Creamery To Celebrate 150th Anniversary

For 150 years, the Berkey Creamery has been serving some of the best ice cream in the country. In honor of the sesquicentennial celebration, there will be a contest to select a new Creamery flavor.

Fans will be able to vote on the newest Creamery flavor via a social media contest starting Memorial Day weekend. Voting starts May 24 and can be done through Penn State’s Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook pages. Voters will select from three different celebration-themed flavors, with the winner to debut at the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts in July. Rest assured the new flavor will also be available at the Creamery. The winning flavor will be named with another contest later in the summer.

With the help of the College of Agricultural Sciences, the Creamery plans to hold events throughout the year to celebrate. Starting in July, visitors can collect a limited edition Flavor Passport that allows them to track the different flavors they have tried at the Creamery. Fans can also look forward to the launch of a new Creamery website, ice cream socials throughout the year, and a Creamery artifact exhibit in the university library from August to December.

Use the hashtag #Creamery150 for contest updates, trivia, and Penn Staters’ memories of the Creamery. And who knows, maybe the Creamery will take our advice for some new flavors: Pegula Freeze, Bundy’s Banana Split, or Honey Roasted Hackenberg. The possibilities are endless!
