Homeostasis occurs when the mouth’s warm environs are cooled down by the presence of cold confections such as ice cream, popsicles, or frozen yoga mats. Create inner balance with today's Groupon: for $5, you get two half gallons of ice cream at Buck's Ice Cream Place (up to a $12.50 value) on the University of Missouri campus.

At Buck's Ice Cream Place, student employees cram bellies with 14 flavors of fresh, homemade ice cream. Behind the small storefront is a fully functional ice-cream laboratory and research facility that educates students on all aspects of ice-cream production, including machinery maintenance, inventory, manufacturing, and tactics for calming inter-flavor rivalries.

Taste the delectable potions of Buck’s ice-cream scientists, such as tiger stripe, a blend of gold-dyed french vanilla with dutch chocolate swirls, resembling the coat of Mizzou mascot Truman the Tiger ($6.25 per half gallon). Black walnut slathers taste buds with sumptuous texture, and the raspberry sherbet pummels palates with berry flavor while giving off a refreshing fruit aroma when used as perfume (both available for $5.75 per half gallon).


The Maneater, Only Ice Cream, and The Gazette featured Buck's Ice Cream Place. Four Yelpers give the business a five-star average.

  • It is only natural that the students at MU enjoy ice cream, and Buck’s Ice Cream Place has been satisfying their cravings since the 1960s. – Kristen Herhold, Maneater
  • Just bigger than a dorm room, Buck's has four tables and a counter where customers buy their ice cream. A black and white photo of Wendell Arbuckle hangs on the wall next to a vintage cream separator from the early 1900s. The curious can peek through a large window into the back to see where the ice cream is made. – Team X, Only Ice Cream
