“Must-visit for Pullman visitors”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

This is just one of those odd places that makes a particular town or area unique.

Though the ice cream comes in lots of cool flavors, I don't know that it's that special.
But knowing the milk comes from a land grant college creamery rather than an ordinary commercial source IS special and part of what makes this store unique. There are also WSU-only cheese products sold here that have quite a reputation I'm told (by my brother in PA who went there with me when he visited this summer).

Reviewed 8 October 2013

This is a MUST visit if you're heading to Washington State University ANYTIME soon. Not only is the ice cream delish, but our TRUE favorite item is the COUGAR GOLD CHEESE.

Reviewed 17 August 2013

We were so happy to find this open on Monday on our way out of town. Stocked up on Cougar Gold, and a little after breakfast ice cream. Delicious!

“Poor hours, but great!”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

Ferdinand's runs on an academic schedule and not a retail one, so they are never open in the evenings. The parking is area is metered and small; and the place can become very crowded on WSU game-days. When I go its typically post-lunch for the occasional indulgence.
