Great news on the ice cream front. That delicious NC State ice cream you wait in line for at the State Fair each October? You can now trek on down to the Bragaw C-store and pick up a pint for $4.50. Flavors include chocolate chocolate chip, vanilla, cookie dough, chocolate chip mint and campfire delight (a graham-cracker flavored ice cream with chocolate chunks and marshmellows). Of course, you can always get your 3-gallon tubs and tiny cups at Schaub Hall or settle in with a book and a sundae from The Creamery in D.H. Hill Library.
We wrote about the ice cream in a 2003 story and dug up this about dairy production at NC State:
In fact, dairy production at NC State dates to the early 20th century, when the first pasteurized milk was produced in the basement of Polk Hall. Those early supplies went to soldiers in World War I. In the early 1960s, the dairy science curriculum merged with a few other majors to become food science. And in 1968 the new major found a home in Schaub Hall, which was built with a fully operational dairy pilot plant.
