What can be said about ice cream? It is cold . You have a large variety of flavors from which to choose. How do you like your ice cream? Cones, bowls, sundaes, shakes, malts? Take your pick. Eat there or take home. M-M-Good.

All kinds of delicious flavors of ice creams. We passed several big-name ice cream shops to come out here and I'm glad we did. The drive went quickly and I love supporting local businesses. The kids working behind the counter where super polite as well.
