Call Hall Dairy Bar - Manhattan, Kansas
Call Hall on the Kansas State University campus has housed the KSU Dairy Processing Plant since 1964. It also has the Dairy Bar where ice cream, milk, cheese, meat and sandwiches are sold to the public. The Call Hall Dairy Bar carries 40 different flavors of ice cream, but only about half are available at a given time. One of the popular flavors is Purple Pride, which is named for K-State University and is actually blueberry ice cream. My personal favorites are Irish Cream and Butter Pecan .
The meat section has lamb, beef, pork and poultry from animals raised at the University, plus seasonal items such as smoked turkey, smoked hams, summer sausage, beef jerky, barbeque beef, barbeque pork, wildcat loaf and cheese & meat boxes. There are even eggs and milk.
The rest rooms are through the door into the main building past a window where you can see the Kansas State University Dairy Plant, which processes milk from the K-State dairy farm to make whole, 2%, skim and chocolate milks, ice cream, cheeses and putter. Besides the Diary Bar, the primary customers for the dairy products are the KSU dormitories and some businesses in the Manhattan area.
