Texas Tech's own creamery churns out batches of homemade hits (Video)
With summer's higher temperatures comes a craving for cooler sweet treats. July is National Ice Cream Month, and we take you inside the homemade ice cream making process of COWamongus. The eatery, located inside Texas Tech's Animal Science and Food Sciences building, has the perfect recipe for this warm weather confection.
COWamongus! Creamery and Meat Company was created in 2005 with the support of Texas Tech alumnus Daniel Brackeen, owner of Heritage Family Specialty Foods and creator of the TCBY yogurt chains. Brackeen set up a partnership between Texas Tech and his company, allowing the university no cost access to his company's equipment, technology and materials in order to develop homemade products.
The campus-based business offers a variety of flavors of homemade ice cream, sorbet and frozen custard. The sweet treats are made in the fruits and dairy lab just down the hall in Tech's Animal and Food Sciences building. Manager Kim Cannon said there's also a retail store where customers can buy meat and dairy products processed by Tech's Department of Animal and Food Sciences.
