Production of Creamery ice cream has begun in the manufacturingrooms of the Berkey Creamery, which is expected to open sometime thismonth. Ice cream cone sales are continuing at the Borland Lab locationdown the street. Meanwhile,the hot weatherand increased demand during arts festival week, coupled with the needto stop production during July to facilitate the move,has caused an ice cream shortage in some flavors at the Creamery. TomPalchak, manager of University Creamery Services, has had to orderabout 300 tubs of Hershey Ice Cream in strawberry, chocolate, cookiesand cream, and peanut butter swirl, to sell in the interim as the newmanufacturing facility goes online. "Anice cream season like this one occurs only once in every 10 years inPennsylvania," hesaid. Palchak had stockpiled a six-week supply of ice cream, but demandwas so heavy it sold in two weeks.
