Throughout the month of August, Tribune writers are tasting our way through some of Utah's finest frozen confections including ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt and shave ice in an effort to beat the heat. Today's pick:
LaVell Vanilla • Named after Brigham Young University's legendary football coach LaVell Edwards, this is the top-selling ice cream on the Provo campus. Some people might say vanilla is the favorite because BYU students and alumni are proudly conservative. But customers have been known to kick up their heels a bit and add fresh fruit, nuts and crushed candy bars to their scoop.
BYU Creamery • 1209 N. 900 East, Provo. Open Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.; and Friday-Saturday, 11 a.m. to midnight. Also available at the Wyview and Helaman buildings and the outlet store in the Culinary Support Center (the old creamery).
