A Cool College Hangout The BYU Creamery
Just Hangin' Out at the BYU Creamery
No Alcohol, Bring on the ice cream!
Brigham Young University, home of the world famous BYU Cougars, located in Provo, Utah, is America’s largest religious university. BYU is a private university which is owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, sometimes referred to as the Mormons. In order to attend this prestigious institution, once admitted by meeting the strenuous admission qualifications, one must commit to adhere to an honor code, which among other things requires abstaining from the consumption of drugs and alcohol.
Perhaps for the typical college student this may seem like an end to anything fun. The BYU Creamery proves that this is just not the case!
The BYU Creamery is famous for its fresh made ice cream in a variety of unique flavors.

A little BYU Creamery history.
In 1949, Phil Shumway, a member of the BYU animal science faculty was approached by the university treasurer and asked to set up a dairy products plant to turn raw milk from the BYU dairy into drinking products for the BYU campus dining services. The production of milk led to other products like cheese, sour cream, and especially ice cream, of which there are now over 40 different flavors. It was not long before the Creamery started carrying other general supermarket items, and has now become a full service grocery store.

Fry Sauce at the Creamery is the bomb!
Besides offering a place to grocery shop, the Creamery has a diner, which is a great place to grab a meal and hang out with your friends.
Rated as one of the top locations in Utah to get a great hamburger, The BYU Creamery keeps their costs low to accommodate the struggling college crowd. The burgers are fresh, never frozen, and they are served on a delicious homemade bun, with all the toppings on the side.

BYU Creamery ice cream is always an adventure.
After the meal it is time for some fresh Creamery ice cream, which is located in the same building, at the Creamery ice cream parlor. Here you can choose from a variety of flavors like Beehive Crunch, Ernestly Chocolate, LaVell’s Vanilla (which is named after the legendary BYU football coach, LaVell Edwards), or take a chance with the most feared flavor, Fire and Ice (cinnamon apple with Tabasco sauce).
The BYU Creamery sells around 75 to 90 gallons of ice cream daily, with Vanilla being the most popular flavor. During a BYU football game they have been known to sell as many as 180 gallons, that’s a lot of customers, wouldn’t you say?
