Sorry Hopkins...King's creamery has got ya beat. Yup. Even though we have been enjoying your frozen, fresh made ice cream for years, your Milton neighbor is better tasting. I think. But thanks anyway for the ice cream yesterday, 08/11/17.

Love to come here when we visit Rehoboth beach. Truly delicious ice cream. I love the black raspberry but there are many others to choose from. Can be crowded on summer, evenings but well worth the short drive (from Rehoboth) and the wait.

Get your ice cream to go and hope that your wait time in line is short, because the aroma from dairy cows will be off putting.
