Boy will you scream if you don't some of the fresh, fresher, freshest ice-cream you have have seen! Fabulous, fantastic, scrumptious, flavorful....not enough adjectives to describe. Only draw backs are the limited parking and the lines. But getting past these little troubles is well worth the time. Oh, did I mention cheese? Home of Cougar Gold need I say more?... More

Ferdinands is the spot where they make famous Cougar Gold Cheese. It is also an ice cream and coffee shop. You can buy other Washington State University products there like Cougar oatmeal and Cougar honey which comes in buckwheat and wildflower flavor. One can also watch the production line of the cheese making process at certain times in the day.

This is a very popular ice cream shop. It is yummy, but busy. All the ice creams contain dairy (no sorbet options), but there is frozen lemonade for those who can't eat dairy. A few tables inside and a few outside. Sitting on the curb is also an option if all the tables are full.

I gave this place 3 stars only because they offer no options for dairy free people. Otherwise for those that can eat dairy this place is amazing. The scoops are huge and the ice cream is creamy and delicious. A must if you are on the WSU campus.

Stopped by and bought some cheese to take home with us. The ice cream was the best I have ever eaten. Our family tried 3 different flavored and they were wonderful. Can't wait to return. We had a very short wait to order, receive our goods, and pay. If you are in Pullman be sure to stop by Ferdinand's!

Only wish they had more open hours. It is on WSU campus but once you find, it's a treat. They have a good variety of ice cream made on site. Shakes and sundaes. And don't forget the Cougar cheese.

Crazy good ice cream! Even if it's crowded, you should still go. It looks like chaos, but the system works very well and the ice cream is so worth it!

A real treat! Both the cheese and the ice cream are delicious. The ice cream is the creamiest I have ever eaten. Take advantage of the cheese samples before making your decision. We settled for the Smoked Cheddar but plan to order more later. Wish the curds came in all flavors. Parking can be a problem unless you are familiar... More

The ice cream and cheese are amazing, but be prepared for a wait. They keep short hours and it's a small place - since everything is delicious, there will pretty much always be a crowd!

Thank Allison S
