TODAY Show Visits Berkey Creamery for National Ice Cream Month Segment

There’s no better way to celebrate National Ice Cream Month than with a few gallons of Creamery ice cream. Once The TODAY Show caught wind of Penn State’s ice cream-making courses, it sent weekend host Dylan Dreyer to learn how the best ice cream in the world is made.

Professor and Head of Food Science Robert Roberts gave Dreyer the shortened version of his Ice Cream 101 course, one of two ice cream classes offered once a year at Penn State. After spending some time in the classroom, Dreyer went on a tour of the Rodney A. Erickson Food Science Building to see how Creamery ice cream is processed and manufactured. She even snuck a gallon of ice cream from the factory to give it a taste.

Dreyer ended her trip to Penn State at Berkey Creamery, learning how to scoop the perfect cone and serving customers.

After her “cow to cone” journey, Dreyer returned to The TODAY Show with four gallons of Creamery ice cream, including Russ “Digs” Roseberry and Keeney Beany Chocolate, and served her co-hosts (making sure not to mix any flavors).
