Buck’s Ice Cream Place is located in Eckles Hall at MU, but it seems that not a lot of people are aware of its existence. Most people are familiar with Tiger Stripe ice cream, but the general reaction I get when I inform them that Buck’s is where that ice cream is made and sold is confusion and a comment along the lines of, “I didn’t know there was an actual shop where you could get that!”
So, I thought I would inform the masses that yes, Buck’s Ice Cream exists and yes, it is delicious. They have a handful of year-round flavors, as well as seasonal flavors that cycle throughout the year. Here are the top 4 flavors they have in the shop at the moment:
1. Tiger Stripe
The classic flavor is one that most MU students have tasted at the beginning of their time at Mizzou at the infamous Tiger Walk. However, you can actually grab a scoop of Tiger Stripe ice cream whenever you want for just a mere $1.75 (two scoops are $2.25). The ice cream consists of french vanilla with a dark chocolate swirl, and you can’t help but feel some Mizzou pride every time you eat it.
2. Mizzou Gold
Mizzou Gold is another school spirited flavor that also happens to be delicious. It’s just french vanilla ice cream, but it really hits the spot without being too fancy with the flavors. The fact the the ice cream is made by the MU Food Science department also ensures that the ice cream will be top notch.
3. Dark Chocolate
Dark Chocolate ice cream is probably one of the best flavors of ice cream period. Don’t be put off by its title, though — it isn’t actually as bitter as dark chocolate. It tastes more like a very rich Fudgesicle, which I am all about.
4. Tangerine Sherbet
Tangerine Sherbet is one of the seasonal flavors of the moment. It is light and refreshing and fancier than just plain old orange sherbet. It’s perfect for a hot day, which we have been having a lot of lately. Grab some before it cycles out and is replaced with the fall flavors (which are also amazing).
