Over half the flavors have nuts or peanut butter. They were unwilling to open a fresh box for my daughter to get any non-nut flavor. The flavors are unique in name but the taste didn't stand up to the name.

Best local homemade ice cream in Gainesville! The staff is friendly and the owner is amazing!!! Love that they use local beer brewers to make some of their fun ice cream. Swamp head ice cream and first magnitude ice cream...what more do you want!

I love the choices and they vary everyday. Worth a second visit. Very delicious home made ice cream. Tastes better than commercialized. I tried the cookies and cream, cookie dough, and the crazy caramel.
