Why Try It?
Treat yourself to a famous UConn tradition by trying some of our locally made ice cream! Over 200,000 customers visit the Dairy Bar annually to enjoy more than 24 flavors of ice cream created right here at the Dairy Bar. The Dairy Bar still manufactures ice cream according to its original and recipe from the early 1900s. Perhaps our most famous flavor is "Jonathan Supreme", named for the school's mascot, Jonathan the Husky Dog (vanilla ice cream swirled with peanut butter and chocolate covered peanuts).
